Ratings for Dr. Cheryl H. Geer
I can't say enough wonderful things about Dr. Geer. She is truly one of the hardest working women I have met. Right from our first visit she made me feel like I was in good hands. I have a heart condition and she was so thorough and only wanted the best for me and my baby. She puts her patients needs and well being first and she walks with you every step of the way. After reading through all of the reviews, yes, there were times you would wait, but who wouldn't want to wait for such great care? In our society everyone is in such a rush and how wonderful and amazing is it that Dr. Geer actually takes the time to get to know her patients so she can make the best health plan for her patients. She is patient, kind, intelligent and makes you feel like you could be her own daughter. My pregnancy journey was complicated between my heart issues and potential growth issues with the baby....Dr. Geer made it uncomplicated because she made the best decisions for me and my daughter at every visit. She delivered our little girl a little over a month ago and I can't thank her enough for her guidance. I highly recommend her and will always be grateful for my time spent with her and for the blessing she delivered.
I went to Dr Geer throughout my first pregnancy. I tend to be a worrier and have a big case of white coat syndrome. Each appointment Dr. Geer and her staff were extremely cheerful and extremely calming. After a small scare in the beginning of my pregnancy Dr Geer sat down and with both my husband and I and gave us a tip that helped me through nervous points in my pregnancy. She told us whenever I got nervous to sit down and come up with 10 things I things that I was grateful for because you can't be nervous and grateful at the same time. My husband and I tried this many different times. Every appointment she took time to make sure all of our questions were addressed and that we felt comfortable about how the pregnancy was progressing. She made sure to watch the baby's development very closely. If any measurement was off she made sure to check a number of different ways to make sure the baby was ok. We were extremely grateful for the care we received from Dr Geer.
I went to Dr. Geer at 12.5 weeks for my first pregnancy checkup. When I got there, I waited for 45 minutes which isn't a big deal because most doctors who are busy have long wait times. We'll, when I met Dr. Geer, she gave me a consultation, no ultrasound, no pap, no checkup, just a talk. It was weird. She spent more time talking about my profession and trying to awkwardly connect with me then discuss what I was there for. I am very personable and for some reason I felt like she was trying way too hard as if it was fake. We went through my medical history and the services she provides, where she delivers and such which is important but his discussion during my appointment and nothing else was a waste of my time. She charged me $150 for the visit and tried to get me to purchase her prenatal vitamins she sells in her office. She then schedules an ultrasound for later that week and recommends an ultrasound with a genetic specialist the very next day after her ultrasound! I know two ultrasounds back to back is not a good idea. She then schedules me for a separate pap appointment 2 weeks out. I just felt like she is not efficient. Additionally, she had me order blood work and one of her nurses called me a week and a half later to go over it and said my HCG levels were high so I should get another ultrasound to rule out twins. So al in all they recommended 3 ultrasounds in a matter of 3 weeks. I am 27, I weigh 135lbs and not high risk. My level was 155650 at 12.5 weeks. Every chart online shows this to be within normal range. If I had twins, it should be in the 300-400k range. Needless to say I cancelled all the appointments with her a few days after I met with her and switched to Dr. Cole in Ventura. He supports natural birth, midwives and the like. He is awesome. I highly recommend him!
My wife and I loves her, she delivered our 3rd kid just a couple weeks ago. Does she take long in her appointments -yes. But she is worth the wait. You people are nuts who gave her a bad review. My wife had to male doctors in Camarillo...they were horrible! Dr. Geer is amazing, I will take that to the grave. She is passionate about her job. She mentioned stuff about the weight, but she is mentions it because she is a professional -that is her job. Dr. Geer is amazing and worth the wait. I have recommended her to women and I am not even a women!!! I love my wife and she is happy with doctor Geer. My wife did gripe about the wait, but she would never go to any other doc!!! Sorry Doc Geer I had to give you a "4" on punctual, but your a busy women, I get it =) Staff is great! Amazing Professional Doctor (Period)
I love Dr Geer. She was my wife’s dr for the delivery of our baby boy on March 17. All of my wife’s friends told her that Dr Geer was the best, and we completely agree. My wife’s sister had complications during her delivery (amniotic fluid embolism) and all the nurses on the labor and delivery floor seemed on edge (we loved our nurses too, nothing against them). When it came time to push, every nurse on the floor was in the room. It was kind of tense but as soon as Dr Geer walked in she took control. She was confident, competent, and sooo calming to everyone in the room. It turned into a really special and relaxed experience because Dr Geer just had this really great calming presence. We will tell everyone we know how great she is and how lucky we feel that she’s our Dr. She also did the dirty work of getting all visitors out of the room so we could get some rest while we waited for the baby to move down. THANK YOU Dr Geer, we really appreciate how great you are.
Where to begin with this worst doctor in the history. After making the appointment, When we showed up she said, "My assistant should of told you we were not accepting new patients, but since you are here I guess I have no choice." In a mean way. This should have been a red flag but we made the next appt. As the weeks passed I got diabetes due to the pregnancy and she would be degrating towards me saying I was overweight and was sure I had diabetes my whole life. I did not have diabetes before nor with my first childs birth. As the pregnancy went on she insisted to have a c-section because she was sure the baby was WAY over weight and if we tried to give natural birth the baby "Would die and choke while attempting that." Brining me to tears we decided on the c-section. After birth the baby only weighed 7 pounds to which I should have punched her in the face for what she made me go through. This is by far the worst doctor EVER!!!!
Though the wait time can seem tedious, it is totally worth it. I had a complicated pregnancy and delivery, but I always felt safe and well taken care of with Dr. Geer. She is kind and caring. She always listened to and addressed my concerns. I would definitely recommend her to anyone.
I made an appointment with Dr. Geer last year (March 2011) and I’m from out of town. She is knowledgeable and caring. I was fortunate to have found her because I had a bad experience with another OB/GYN doctor prior to seeing her. I had a cervical polyp removed and I didn’t feel the pain at all. In addition, her staff are friendly and just great. I highly recommend this doctor. :)
Dr.Geer is an amazing doctor! She exhibits the perfect balance of professionalism, sincerity, warmth, optimism and confidence. We are so grateful to have her in our lives.She was attentive to our concerns as first parents, and gave us both the confidence we needed to make informed decisions. Her keen intuition is the key factor that sets her apart from other doctors we met with. When you are in labor you want the most knowledgeable doctor there who is capable of making the right rash decisions for you and your baby. I will never forget the mellow words she offered the night of my son's birth.She eased every anxtious feeling in my gut.She is encouraging when you need encouragement. She is truthful when you are being an irrational, emotional pregnant woman.We always left her office laughing and ready for the next phase of pregnancy.She is a magical lady!
I'm sure expectant mothers love the time she takes with them, but that means she is never on time for anyone else. I have seen her for 5-6 years and she has never been on time yet.....not even for the first morning appointment! Be prepared for a long wait. This is very difficult for those of us who work 9-5. She also has a pretty high turnover of office staff, so they never seem to know what they are doing. She is very kind and patient, but seems a little ditzy which does not instill a lot of confidence. You may wonder why I still see her. The truth is, I am past my childbearing years and don't need my hand held. I go to her for an exam once a year. If I were a younger pregnant woman who had to see her every month, I would find someone else who was patient and kind, and a little more professional.
