Ratings for Dr. RICHARD Scuderi
He will give you a C section. Despite it not being medically necessary (I am a physican and I got all the records and considered litigation), he induced labor and I ended up with a c section. This led to a uterine rupture in my second pregancy, almost causing and 3 year old to be without and mother and baby brother. He doesn't understand the potentional consequences of his selfishness.
Dr. Scuderi is one of the best Doctors I know. I am very fortunate that all of my doctors happen to be friends and they are the best! I had 3 c-sections and with each and every one of them I was up and about the very next day. I have several friends who have had c-sections from other doctors and they claim they were in pain for weeks. If it was not for Dr.Scuderi my first born son Matthew would not be alive. When I was 34 weeks pregnant everything went wrong, and things seems to get worse from that moment on. When I was in labor Matthew's heart-beat was lost and Dr. Scuderi did what he thought was best and rushed me in for a c-section. I love Dr. Scuderi and would recommend him to anybody.

my story sounds very similar to other poster's. my water broke on it's own but once i got to lenox hill, he ordered pitocin and so much of it that i also had continuous contractions, a drop in the baby's heart rate, and then he ordered a stat c-section. sounds like this is his mo. he also did not see me for 12 hours until the baby's heart rate dropped and walked in and told me i needed a c-section immediately. i heard from a resident that she had never seen him in a regular delivery, only c-sections.
I was admitted (2.5 weeks eaerly)because I was reportedly 3cm dialated and had some fluid coming out. Nitrazine paper was not blue, he said there was a bad batch, they would do ferning at hospital. Once there they did exam with lube which changes ferning test results and that was no done. By the intern, Pitocin gets started and increased very quickly. Intern told me that his orders were to admit me and start pitocin. About 5 hours later my md examines me and sees my water had not broke, so with out any discussion (about this or pitocin) he breaks it and said there was slight meconium (a reason he could use to get the baby out if I didn't progress quickly enough. I was going at least 1 cm per hour but he continued to increase the pitocin and turn down the epidural. At 9 cm fully effaced, I had a continous uterine contraction (uternie tentany) which caused a drop in babys heart rate so a stat c was ordered, when I asked why, HE YELLED AT ME. They gave me IM terbutaline so by the
