Ratings for Dr. Wendy R. Gregory
I really liked Dr Gregory at first but after delivering a baby with Sparks and Favor, my views definitely changed. She was not the Dr on call when I went into labor, so my baby was delivered by Dr Sparks, who was condescending, dismissive, and frankly I think misogynistic. I was infected with MRSA through my episiotomy, and Dr Sparks dismissed my symptoms, and even a postitive for MRSA urine sample, until I went into toxic shock with multi-organ failure. Dr Gregory at least visited me in the ICU, which is more than I can say for Dr Sparks, but when I awoke from a week long coma, her first statement to me was that I might have already been colonized with MRSA, which let me know she cared more about the threat of a lawsuit than she did about my care. And after doing research, I found that there are proper protocols that could have been followed to make sure MRSA didn't get into my bloodstream, even if I had been previously colonized. She did not provide proper aftercare, in my opinion. For example, she told me that she would find out if it is safe for me to use tampons after having toxic shock, but never followed through. When my hair fell out a few months later, bc of toxic shock, she let me come in for a couple of tests, but never even talked to me. After almost dying(I was given a 50/50 chance to live), you would think she might have been a little more conscientious with her after-care. Obviously, I have found a caring Dr in a different practice, and a different hospital. Please, so not buy into Brookwood's swanky ad campaign if you are preparing to have a baby. Look at things like infection rates, c-section rates, and educate yourself about why that is an important indicator about standards of care before you decide on a Dr and practice to deliver your baby
Dr. Gregory was the best. She provided superb prenatal care for me and my baby. She was always nice and polite and listened to any concerns that I may have had. She did a great job delivering my baby and for that I will forever be grateful to her. Thanks, Dr. Gregory!
I went to see Dr. Gregory for my annual exam. When reviewing my medical history we discussed my genetic kidney disease. I have a 50% chance of passing this on to my future children. She made it clear that she didn't think I should have children because of this. I was hurt and will be finding a doctor who does support me. On the other hand, she did a good job with my pap smear and answered all my questions well.
She was HORRIBLE!!! She failed at my surgery and then basically told me that all my pain and problems were in my head and stopped giving me ANY options for treatment. When I told her the meds she put me on were making me so sick I couldn't stand up and were giving me chest pains, she said "It's just side effects, it'll go away." I changed doctors, had the same tests and surgery ALL over again (this time from someone competent), was diagnosed with endometriosis, treated, and have been SO much better. I wasted so much time, money, and energy going to her. She was awful.
Dr. Gregory is awesome! She is so friendly and it really makes visits easy. She's very down to earth and eager to answer any questions you have. The downside to her being so great is having to wait awhile to get an appt, however I recommend her to anyone that asks.
Dr. Gregory is wonderful!! She is the best doctor I have ever been to. I was very nervous about going to an OB/GYN but she made the examination quick and as comftorable as possible. She is very understanding and kind. I would recommend her to anyone and she seems to really care about your problems. She took a detailed history and actually cared about my problems. She is great!!
Dr. Gregory is awesome. She always listened, didn't judge, and her nurse is always available and calls back soon if you need something. She delivered my daughter and I didn't have a good experience with the nurses, but I won't change hospitals to deliver my next because I want her to do it. She also has kids, so she understands where you are coming from!
She is one of the best doctors I have used. She really listens to you and helps with any problems you have even if its not in her field. She really gets to know you as a person. She delievered my baby this past year and I was so thankful to have her there.
