Ratings for Dr. Jose De Lara
Horrible no parking for the patients, sometimes I didn't found where to park with my big belly. The room is super small and always lots of people. I hate every single apoiment I had with him. After all he didn't do to much tuck 2 minuts of his time and that was all. I won't come back to him. :( I was sad and frustrated about him
Dr De Lara is an amazing profesional and the best Dr I ever had. He perform an HSG on me and was very supportive dealing with my recurrente miscarriage problem. I am so grateful that I have found him because we have been struggle trying to keep a pregnancy until the end an He was able to find out what was the problem with me. The nurses and staff are very nice and kind. I strongly recommend this doctor
The best doctor ( OBGYN ) ever, he did my ectopic pregnancy surgery last October 8, 2014,, I felt so scared and nervous that time coz I was alone, don't know what happened after surgery ( the best line he told me during that time which I will never forget was " Don't worry you will survived, I will take care of you " ) Thank you Doctor..., and a year after I asked doctor delara if it is safe to get pregnant again after my ectopic pregnancy and he said Yes....Thank you Lord I get pregnant again and give birth last November 25, 2016. With Doctor de Lara I fell so safe and I know I will survived because he is always there. He visited me in the morning before contraction begin , and he always double check. Me and my family love you doctor Jose De Lara. Thank you very much. And the staff at his office is very good to me as well.
I love Dr. De Lara, he will be doing my c section in a few weeks and also delivered my last baby! He knows what he is doing and is good at it, I'd see no one else!! Knowledgable, straight forward and funny at that!!! I never left my appointments un happy
He's really a good Doctor! He's was recommended to me by my family doctor when They found out I had a cyst on both ovaries. I was so scared that time, that I ended up having a surgery but Dr De Lara assured me that everything will be ok. And He is right, during my operation he is so hands on, he really knows what he's doing. He even told me that after 3 months of having a surgery of removing my cyst, I will get pregnant and indeed it happens! He's awesome! He's a very busy Doctor but I definitely recommend him.
The birth of your child is intended to be the best moment, though if you are rushed into a emergency C-section everything becomes a blur, especially if you are in such condition that they must put you under during the procedure. Therefore you put trust in those that are caring for you and your child. Dr Delara failed to inform me after the surgery that I required blood transfusions, that I had several complications, and the write the correct TIME OF BIRTH of my child. I have no idea what the correct time is due to have a photo my husband took with our child that is before the time of birth stated on the information provided to us. I am in the process of making a request to access my Health Information through the Netcare EHR, so hopefully the exact time my child was born was written down but who knows? It is an awful feeling not knowing what time your child was born at. If you have time and options, explore them with different doctors. I would not recommend Dr. De Lara to anyone.
I was referred to Dr De Lara at about 30 weeks in my pregnancy. I found the office quite busy during the afternoon hours and his waiting room is quite small and crowded. Honestly I didn't mind waiting as I know he runs over to the hospital to deliver babies frequently and soon that could be me. The staff in the office can be cold, but once I had been there a few times they warmed up. Dr De Lara was great the 4 times I seen him at the office. Very informative and reassuring (I was scared with it being my first pregnancy). My appointments were often quick but I did not mind that. On my last appointment at his office, my water broke in his office. He was quick to explain what my next steps were and what was going to happen - that I had 18 hours to go into labour before he was going to induce me. Being the long weekend he was not on call till Saturday night ( and I would be under the care of the Doctor on call at the time) - I waited in the hospital trying to get induced until Dr De Lara came on shift Saturday evening. Finally he was the one who got the ball rolling. I ended up having a c section seeing as my water broke and the risk of infection at this point was extremely high and my cervix just wouldn't dilate despite being induced. I was very scared and nervous through the whole thing and Dr De Lara was very comforting and tried to shed some humour on the situation - definitely made me feel better My incision is small and I am very impressed with how everything turned out even if I ended up having a c section. I will definitely be returning to him when I have another baby.
I was referred to Dr De Lara for my first pregnancy and was left filled with regret. My baby was large (around 8 lbs at my 35 week US) and I had too much amniotic fluid so he basically told me he was inducing me at 39 weeks. He didn't ask, just told me this is how it was because if he didn't and I went into labour naturally and my water broke before I got to the hospital my cord was at risk of prolapsing and killing my baby. There was no discussion of actual risk, what the odds of this happening were, how many women's water actually breaks before they're admitted. No time for a real discussion or questions. He scheduled my induction while he was on vacation, so basically all he ever did for me was measure my belly every few weeks... Why could my GP (who I love) not have done this if whoever happened to be at the hospital was going to deliver my baby anyway? The induction made my labour so painful I couldn't breathe when contractions hit and and my whole body would lock up. I was screaming for the epidural within 30 mintes, and I consider myself to have a fairly high pain tolerance. After 24 hours of labour, 4 hours of which here pushing, I was told I needed a c-section, which was devastating because I had told him explicitly I wanted to avoid this at nearly any cost. I truly feel if my body had been given the time to prepare itself to go into labour on it's own I would have been able to deliver my baby the way I wanted. Yes, she was big, but I am also tall and have good size hips, she was not too large for my body to handle. My c section was also a disaster (not De Lara's fault since he wasn't there) but the epidural wore off after my baby was pulled out and despite me screaming in pain the anesthetist seemed unphased and didn't look up from his news paper. When the Dr asked if he could give me something since I was suffering so badly he said it would make me loopy and I wouldn't remember anything. That's a great comment to make to someone who was already going into shock. Basically, my first birth was one of the most physically and emotionally traumatic events of my life, I'm terrified to get pregnant again, and it's all because Dr De Lara couldn't be bothered to take 10 extra minutes to have a real conversation with me or personally assess my risks. Oh and all the stuff others have said about waiting 2-3 hours for appointments is true, and when he's called out for a delivery they don't call you to tell you he's gone. You just show up and they tell you to leave.
