Wanted to transfer from existing OB because this practice is all female and uses akron general. After making me wait for 2+ weeks to get our medical files transferred they told us they were not accepting new patients. No medical reason to refuse the transfer, I had been in communication every few days for the entire time. They showed no empathy and wasted my time. If they were not taking new patients they should not have made me go through the whole process, now we do not have time enough to transfer before our next appointment with our current OB.

Defiantly would not recommend this practice! I moved to Ohio from Virginia and am a little over 6 months pregnant. I called Akron OBs to make an appointment and they told me they would need to review my file to make sure I was an "acceptable patient" after I passed that test they told me I needed to meet with a nurse to review my medical history. So I go in for the appointment and wait over an hour to be asked about 5 questions that were all in my transfer paperwork. (I then recovered a $150 bill for this because my insurance wasn't correctly applied. ;) ) I was told I needed a fetal echo so made an appointment for two days later at Akron Children's hospital. My appointment with the actual Dr was scheduled for two Monday's after. I had to cancel this appointment due to the start of a new job. Well I was kindly emailed and told that Akron OBS will not be able to be my obstetrician because I was unable to attend my FIRST appointment and that indicates I will be a "problem patient." I thought I had been to two appointments already but I guess the Dr I was scheduled to see is unable to work around her patients needs and is okay with leaving someone who is over 6 months pregnant and has been working with her office for a month with no Dr. Thanks Akron OBs!

I have had surgeries with this group and have been under their care since 2009.In 2010 a hysterectomy was followed by an abscess that had me in the hospital for a week immediately following. I was seen one time by the GYN that performed the surgery, zero explanation was given. Flash forward to 2013, when an ovary removal ended up with me in the hospital for 5 days 6 months later because of abdominal pain. Each day I spent there, I had a separate doctor from this practice, none of which agreed with each other on the diagnosis: The first one said there was no way I had an ovary, as he surgically removed it. The second one said that I may have one, and that he would like to do a hormone check and wait for the ultra sound results. Both the blood test and the ultra sound showed that I had an ovary, even though they had been removed.The last doctor to visit completely disregarded the blood work and the ultra sound confirming ORS, regardless that these tests were ordered by her colleague from Western Reserve. She then insisted I needed yet another CAT scan, this time with contrast.Needless to say, my decision to find another OB/GYN was completely solidified after this conversation. I told her that I refused to do another CAT scan because it was unnecessary and would rather not take yet another dose of radiation without cause.On top of all that at no time did any of the doctors tell me to stop taking HRT. I ended up making a command decision and removed myself from it.Today, I went to Akron General to get my records and it took all of 5 mins. When I went to get my records from Western Reserve? It was just as much of a headache as the surgeries and hospital stays. The “person that handles the records” is on vacation and they will attempt to get them faxed to my new GYN by my appointment next week.And to add insult to injury? I will be charged for each page they copy; even if it doesn’t get there in time.So, if what you want is what you read above, by all means, go to the practice. My suggestion? Do yourself and your body a favor: steer clear of them altogether
Tips & Advices
OB/GYNs learn to treat infertility as part of their standard education. OBGYNs who further their training in reproductive endocrinology and infertility are known as fertility specialists.
Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is a treatment where medication is used to replace hormones a woman's body does not create naturally. Women are prescribed either estrogen alone or a mix of estrogen and progesterone. The former is given to women who've had hysterectomies, while the latter is for postmenopausal women. HRT used to be a common treatment, but doctors have prescribed it less often in recent years, as concerns of negative side effects increased.
Endometriosis is a chronic condition where uterine tissue (endometrium) grows in areas outside the uterus. This can cause extreme pain, especially around menstruation and during sex. Other symptoms include infertility, chronic fatigue, and painful urination or bowel movements during menstruation. In addition, many women with endometriosis also have allergies, frequent yeast infections, or sensitivity to certain chemicals.
Morning sickness is a common pregnancy symptom that includes nausea and occasional vomiting. Despite its name, morning sickness can occur at any time of day. The exact reason for this condition isn't clear, although most believe it results from hormone changes affecting muscle contraction and relaxation in the stomach and intestines. Another theory suggests morning sickness is caused by an abundance of intestinal bacteria in pregnant woman.
OBGYNs can prescribe or perform the following types of birth control:
  • Contraceptive pills
  • Birth control shots
  • Implants
  • Diaphragms
  • Vaginal rings
  • Cervical caps
  • Intrauterine devices
  • Tubal ligation
  • Hysterectomies
Women do not need to see an OBGYN to obtain over-the-counter forms of birth control such as male condoms, female condoms, or sponges.
