Ratings for Dr. Kathleen McCoy
This is a bit late, but I was referred to Dr. McCoy in 1999 with my 9th pregnancy. The first thing she said when she walked in was, "Why are you here?" I thought that a bit rude, couldn't she read the chart? The second thing she said, after she looked at my referral was, "Don't you know your baby could be dead by now?" I still remember every word, even though it was 19 years ago! I was shocked at her callous disregard for my own well-being. Thankfully, my little boy was extremely active, moving all the time, so I didn't fall apart when she asked me that, I just sat in stunned silence. Also, thankfully, I didn't have to continue with her and was able to return to my regular doctor, who took good care of me, and I delivered a healthy baby a few months later. I would NEVER recommend this doctor!
Had Dr. McCoy as our high risk specialist doctor. My wife showed signs of Incompetent Cervix with her cervix funneling and looking weak. Was told by Dr. McCoy that there was nothing that could be done other than just waiting. Was given Progesterone tablets that are vaginally inserted. Her cervix had not opened at this point. Went home and did research to find TONS of people that had this issue with their cervix and had a cerclage (stitch) put in to try and keep the cervix closed. Went back to find out why this was not a viable option and was told by Dr. McCoy that there is no conclusive evidence for the benefits. When asking her questions if there was conclusive evidence AGAINST it, she could not state that there was. Of course there are risks associated with having the cerclage, but the risks of not having it was miscarriage. Fast forward 5 days and my wife's cervix is not fully dilated and open with no chance of cerclage now. Would never recommend seeing this doctor.
SHE IS THE WORST. She is impersonal, and when she doesn't like something about your situation, she is mean and doesn't care for you or the baby. I was pregnant with a healthy baby girl and she said she was going to be mentally handicapped no doubt. WORST DOCTOR.
the worst doctor in the world.i had my daughter 5/10/10 , when i first met mccoy i was only 14 weeks, she fine nice,listened then when i hit that 5-6 month mark suddenly im unfit to have a child because i wasnt married and when my mom stood up for me mccoy turnt the table and said "well your heart is gonna give we have to perform an abortion now." wait wtf! hell no. is what i shouted at her. we called my heart doctor (her best friend it turnt out to be) and she told mccoy i was fine and could continue the pregnancy.then mccoy started threatening to take us to court to force a abortion we told her to ty, it never happened . after that she was rude and nasty the entire time and started saying my mother wasnt allowed to be at my appointments.mccoy bullied me into a csection at the end of my 8th month said id die with another pregnancy so i signed the paper.found out it was bs after the csection,i just went to the e.r my tubes were never tied n im preggo ill never go back to mccoy EVER
I was pregnant with twins,lost one at 17 wks, 6 moths had high blood pressure thoughout the whole pregnancy there after,alot of shortness of breath said it came from being pregnant and carrying the baby,dr.s there are not informed of anything every doctor i seen would say oh it's twins well lets see how they are and i would have to say no, it was twins but i lost one.also told them my other dr. said if i had any other kids that weighed over 6 LBS no way i could push them out because i was to narrow, not a one dr. from that office listened to me,finally pushed out over a 7 lb baby after almost 24 hours of labor,she was stuck coming out,my body was stressed after that labor big time afterwards dr cheecked me out listened to my heart and lungs said all was good,went home 2 days later i was back in the hospital with conjested heart failure,the shortness of breath was a sign of it way back in my 6 month,no one ever said a thing about it,even when i mentioned it to them, they know nothing.
Though she is knowledgeable, and I'm sure competent, she often does not pay attention. It's not just her though, it's the staff and whole process. I had a very high risk pregnancy, and she just didn't order the testing I NOW know that I should have had, or really treat me as high risk. I feel torn, she saved his life with an emergency section after Dr.Fio (who should ABSOLUTELY have his medical licence revoked) told me my 26 weeker had no chance of survival and took me off the monitors, said " this already happened 2 times to you, nothing we can do" and told me he was discharging me. Dr. McCoy came on call, I was given real options and accurate info and she saved my son's life. BUT! It may not have come to that if they had payed closer attention and seen me more frequently during my pregnancy. When I called the office when my baby stopped moving one day at 26 weeks, the staff sais, " oh, your only 26 weeks, it's too early for kick counts" . But that's how my 2 prior babies died.
