Ratings for Dr. Suzanne M. Anstine
Dr. Anstine seems to honestly care about my concerns and took time to make sure I understood what was happening in my body before and after surgery. She seems up to date with current research and what is out there. She is the best OB/GYN I've seen.
I am very concerned regarding what I have already experienced, and I haven't even met her yet. It seems that her case load is so heavy that she doesn't have the time to properly take care of me. With the scheduling issues, I am deeply concerned that my husband will not be able to attend the only portion of the pregnancy that he has the opportunity to attend. And, the most important portion to us. The ultra sound of determining the sex of the baby. My husband is in the Army soon to deploy a third time. He has a two week period of coming home to be here during this appointment. The scheduling is so booked that it does not appear he will be able to attend. What is more difficult is that the front office staff seems to not care, to even consider listening to why this is so important. He will be here only for this appointment, and the delivery. He will be away for the first 8 months of our child's life. And I can't get an appointment? I can't even speak to my doctor regarding this?
She is the sweetest person I have ever met. Usually I don't care about doctors because they are arrogant and make you feel they are always in a hurry. Dr. Anstine is so calm and gentle and of course knows what she's doing. I used to go to a partner in her practice but I switched to her because I found her to be more understanding and caring. It is true, I found I had to wait to see her because many times she would be delivering babies, but I always thought that to be understandable and I thought if that was my situation I would like Dr. Anstine to deliver my baby. Obviously babies don't announce when they will arrive so her hours are kind of unpredictable. Bottom line, I am glad she is my doctor!!!
Dr. Anstine is an amazing doctor. She is without a doubt the most knowledgeable, caring, patient, giving, loving, and honest doctor I have ever been to. I wish I would have found her years ago. I can see why her practice is now closed to new patience -- everyone wants to see her. Reading the reviews of some of the people who rated her poorly saddens me and makes me wonder if they are happy with ANY doctor, or just like to find faults with everyone and everything in their lives. I do have to wait a while to see her, but once I do, she really listens and cares about me personally, and I know she is doing the same for others, so being patient is only courteous. Again, Dr. Anstine is absolutely an amazing doctor and an amazing person.
I was referred to Dr Anstine and my husband and I were very disappointed. I was in the hospital for vaginal bleeing at 6 months and she didnt even know, she said "Oops, sorry I didnt read your chart" after she almost left our appointment without saying anything. Then they would call me and tell me I had to come done ASAP because they forgot to give me my shot and one time I drove all the way down there from Eagle and they decided they wanted to wait. But, most importantly, the carelessness of her and her staff could have cost me and my daughter our lives. She prescirbed me a potassium supplement and I filled the prescription and almost took it like it said on the bottle. I second guessed it and called them. They messed up. If i had taken it like it said on the bottle it could have seriously hurt my daughter and I, and possibly even killed us. Dr Anstine said she will reimburse me for the pills but what if I had taken them instead of second guessing it? We changed doctors at 7 months.
THE BEST WORD TO DESCRIBE DR. ANSTINE IS AN ANGEL! IN FACT I WISH I WAS STILL PREGNANT SO I COULD HAVE MY WEEKLY VISIT WITH HER. SHE IS FULL OF COMPASION AND CARE. NOT VERY OFTEN WILL YOU MEET A PERSON THAT IS AS "REAL" AS SHE IS. SHE WAS ABLE TO ANSWER ALL MY QUESTIONS AND CALM MY FEARS ABOUT CHILD BIRTH. IN FACT HER AND I WENT THROUGH BEING PREGNANT TOGETHER. I WAS SO HAPPY THAT SHE WAS ABLE TO DELIVER MY DAUGHTER, A WEEK LATER SHE HAD HER SECOND CHILD. I WOULD RECOMEND DR. ANSTINE 100% TO ANY WOMAN LOOKING FOR AN OBGYN!! I WILL BE BACK TO SEE HER WHEN I DECIDE TO HAVE ANOTHER CHILD.
I LOVE Dr. Anstine as my OBGYN! She is so sensitive to the issues I have and she is very knowledgeable about the complications I have with each pregnancy. I have OCD and she was so supportive of helping me find medication that I could use during pregnancy. She was also awesome with my deliveries (group B strep infections in the baby and meconium aspiration in the baby). She always takes her time to listen to my concerns and address them in a thorough manner. She was quite often preemptive of any concern that may have come up. In fact, I like her so much, I wish she could be my primary care physician. I hate being pregnant, but I miss going in to see her, I felt like she took such good care of me. She was also great with giving me facts about birth control, and recommended an IUD which I absolutely love! The only times she was late were when she was in a delivery (understandable!) :) It sounds like the previous poster saw an imposter! She is the epitome of tact and caring. :)
