Ratings for Dr. Jeanmarie Householder
I only have good things to say about Dr. Householder and the staff. She is very knowledgeable and also kind and understanding. I always left my appointments feeling well cared for and had all my questions and concerns addressed and during my child's birth she was wonderful. The staff at the office are very helpful and I rarely had to wait very long past my appointment time and I know it gets extremely busy with the number of patients they see.
Dr Householder's nurse, Julie, is a nightmare to communicate with. She does not speak in a respectful manner and I dont belive she accurately relays info to Dr H. Its almost like she is trying to make an issue from every single thing. I dread dealing with her condescending attitude and twisted words. Dr H doesnt seem to care. This is hindering treatment to a great degree.
At my 20wk ultrasound my daughter had issues with her kidney per the tech i meet with NP same day and she said my ultra sound was great. I asked about kidneys she lifted up chart and gives a nervous laughter and says i don't know what that is but Dr householder will tell you at your next appt. (in four weeks) I switched Drs and hospitals bc of her.
Dr. Householder was very unprofessional and rude during my visit with her. There are many ways to address certain issues with your patient, and there are very unprofessinoal ways to address these issues. Dr. Householder chose the most unprofessional ways to speak to me. I didn't appreciate the "lecture", the "criticizing", and the "negative attitude". Words can hardly describe how awful my experience was. In the heat of the moment, all I could do was cry becuase of how shocked I was at what was being said to me and in such a way that it as said. After a day or two, I wondered why I set there and let someone, especially a doctor, treat me that way. I will NEVER go back to visit Dr. Householder, nor anyone else in that office. As a matter of fact, if Sparks Hospital is going to allow their doctors to represent them in such a manner, then I don't even want to go back to that hospital. A very poor, pathetic excuse of a doctor, in my opinion!
I was 40 years old when I went to Dr. Householder due to a lot of pain and irregular bleeding. She immediately had ultrasounds done and found cysts, endometreosis and prolapsed uterus. She actually sat down and spent a lot of time explaining different methods of correcting these conditions. She was down to earth and yes, very matter of fact. My question is...who would not want someone like this that was preparing to operate on them. Surgery was sceduled in 2 weeks. I chose total hysterectomy, bladder sling and "vaginal lift". I had surgery at 8pm and was up walking and going home by 11am the next morning. I took ibuprofen instead of pain medications prescribed and have had no difficulties with the surgery. I had concerns about sling, but was assured if there were issues they would be addressed. That was 2 years ago and that office vist with Dr. Householder was the best decision I could have made. She is an extoidinary physician and I recommend her highly.She changed my life
She is an AWESOME doctor, but kinda like beer, an acquired taste. Some people mesh well with her attitude, and others don't. However, she treats you with care, listens to your questions, and is GREAT during labor. She actually seems like she cares, unlike some doctors who are just there to get paid. I love her! She was my OB with my son, and she's my OB this time, as well.
