Ratings for Dr. Kristin D. Dehaven
I loved this OB when I started using them on October 29, 2015 to confirm my pregnancy. Dr. Dehaven and Dr. Edwards were amazing and still are. However, I would not recommend Dr. Sharma, she is very rough and unprofessional as well. On more than one occasion she was so rough pushing on my belly its hurt me and I could physically feel her pushing down on my baby. Then I had a very complicated delivery. A regular OB checkup turned into me having to be put on monitors in Labor & Delivery. After three hours on monitors they informed me I was severe Preclamptic and I was gojng to have to go in for an emergency c-section at only 30/31 weeks pregnant. I have blood clotting disorder and that was misdiagnosed three times to weather I was active or just a carrier of the gene. THEY CUT ME OPEN WITHOUT ME ON BLOOD THINNER!! My baby was placed in the NICU and I was kept in the hospital myself for 8 days. On the second day of being in the hospital Dr. Sharma calls and has the nurse give me the phone to tell me they REEVALUATED my file and discovered I really was an active blood clotter and needed to start taking blood thinner shots in my stomach once a day for seven weeks. I could have seriously thrown a clotter to my lungs or brain and died while they had me cut open. I was also misdiagnosed multiple times throughout my pregnancy, such as when I started to vomit neon yellow every morning the last three months I was pregnant. It was my liver trying to let me know something wasnt right but the claimed it was late stage morning sickness. I was claimed to be gestational diabetic but could not keep my sugar levels above 80. Oh....Dr. Sharma also had the nerve to tell me I had a FAT POUCH right after I delivered when she was checking my incision. I truly love Dr. Edwards, Dr. Dehaven and Nurse Brittany but the others are a joke, and the other reviews claiming you can not reach the secretary are accurate too!
Dr. Dehaven is a fantastic doctor. I have had 5 pregnancies with 4 different practices (2 in Winchester, 2 when we lived somewhere else). My fifth pregnancy had several complications, one of which was a kidney stone. Dr. Dehaven was the first doctor to see me in the hospital with the kidney stone and she was absolutely fantastic. She was knowledgeable, very willing to listen, and genuinely cared about me. We spent 4 days in the hospital waiting for the kidney stone to pass. We saw 4 different doctors from the practice and every one of them had wonderful bedside manner. We have now delivered and the delivery was attended by Dr. King and Dr. Sharma (spanned two shifts). I would highly recommend Dr. Dehaven, Dr. Edwards, Dr. King, Dr. Kidd, and Dr. Sharma. We got to know all of these doctors fairly well during our time with the stone and the birth. Dr. Bagous is also in the practice, I only interacted with her for one appt. and found her to be considerate as well. We have lived in the area for 14 years with experience with 2 OB practices. This practice is clearly the best. By the way, their doctors that are on call stay at the hospital so they are always present when something happens during delivery, which happened to me.
Well I went to her after I moved here from out of town. She's not a mean person but as for communication and being trustworthy they are horrible. The first incident was after my first visit I received one birth control type and then asked for the a different birth control and generic due to my insurance coverage. I went for my annual the next year and they prescribed the wrong birth control. This year I went and it happened again. Also, the doctor failed to communicate they are going to charge me for an annual exam but not do a PAP. If something is changed from my regular exam than I expect you to communicate so if I have questions. The receptionist never answers the phone and takes forever to get back with you. Every year I have had to follow up with them for my pap results. Also, the office is gross with stains all over the seats. It wasn't like this at first but they obviously don't clean or have anyone clean. This has led me to my decision to leave this office.
She did not seem in tune with the rest of her practice. I met her @8 mos pregnant-I had gained only 15# (recommended weight gain was 15-25#)& told me I could gain no more weight! No other drs had commented about weight & I even asked several times if I was gaining enough weight. She wanted to put me on a structured exercise program, but I told her I did not think it was a wise thing to do @8 mos preg!! When I asked another dr about it at my next appt-she laughed and called her anal about the weight thing. I suggested maybe patients should see her for the 1st appt so she could be anal then instead of the end. BTW-GAINED 25# & LOST IT ALL W/I A MONTH AFTER DELIVERING W/NO PROB TO ME OR THE BABY. She was also on call during my hosp stay & came in ranting about getting my son circumsized. I felt this was totally unprofessional and never would have let her touch my child. Her job is to give me the facts and let me make the decision. Thank God we'd had it done the day before!
