I've been a patient of Dr Marco Uribe since I was 17....that's a loooonnnngggg time!!!! I had severe abdominal pain for two years, very heavy menses, and severe pain during intercourse. I had been to 5 different doctors all testing me for STDs, cancer, and some just said I was ""unlucky."" Puwey all over them. I had one meeting with Dr Uribe and within 5 minutes of explaining my symptoms he said I had endometriosis and by the following week he had me in surgery!!! Bingo! Pain gone. I have never seen another OB/GYN since. His staff of nurses and his nurse practitioner, Julie, are all fabulous. I have referred several female friends to him who have had issues with other practioners and they are all very pleased with Dr Uribe and are all still patients of his. My mother, aunts, and cousins also go to the other physicians (Seeker and Akin) within the group.
The only cons: moving further up north austin and very very long wait time!!!! But well worth it.
I had my hysterectomy with Dr Phillips in 2008 and he is awesome! He did a great job and I think Seton was the best hospital experience I've ever had. He's very thorough, he called me at home when I called his office to finally schedule the procedure (after researching it for a couple of weeks). I ALWAYS felt like I could call with any question. My husband really liked him, felt like he answered all his questions. He's very fun, personable, and has a great attention to detail. If you have to get the procedure done, he's really good at it!
I have been going to Dr. Phillips for 5 years. He is VERY down to earth, makes you laugh, and actually listens to what you have to say. He delivered my second child and it went much smoother than the Dr. that delivered my first. I do not know much about the other Dr's. in the group but highly recommend this one. His nurses are nice and call you back quickly. THE ONLY problem is he is such a good Dr. that he often will get called to deliveries when you are waiting. This would not be a problem if you did not have to pay to park. That could change though as they are opening a new office up north YEAH!!! FINALLY!
Dr. Cowan in amazing. So kind and understanding. Very professional and the office is great. He never
Dr. Seeker is an amazing doctor! He delivered both of my children, as well as the children of two of my sisters and many of my friends. He is so calm and comforting. You leave his office feeling like yours is the best pregnancy ever! He spends plenty of time with his patients and never makes you feel rushed. His office staff is equally amazing, remembering your name and details of previous conversations at each visit. I was recommended to Dr. Seeker by several of my friends and I would recommend him to anyone!
Dr. Seeker delivered my first baby in Feb. of this year. He is a WONDERFUL doctor! At the end of my second trimester, I was going to one of my scheduled nurse visits, not planning on seeing Dr. Seeker, but saw him in the hall, he said hello to me, using my first name, and gave me a hug. It made me feel so good to know that he remembered me by name considering how popular he is. I had a natural child birth and never once did I feel pressured into having a surgical birth. He tries his very best to be at every single one of his patient's deliveries, but as a result, you will find your self waiting a bit longer in the waiting room for office visits while he's at the hospital delivering a baby. Bring a book...or your laptop (they have free wireless).
My wife and I live in Hutto so it's quite a drive to see Dr. Seeker but it's well worth it. He recently delivered our third child and he and his entire staff are nothing short of incredible. He's very personable, very compassionate, and he and his nurses went above and beyond to make my wife feel comfortable when she was pregnant with our first (she was coming off of some miscarriages).
Cannot recommend him highly enough. Several of my wife's friends have switched to him and they all love him as well.
Our experience with Dr. Seeker was very medical and though he was sweet, overall was not good.
Initially we asked all the questions suggested in our books, and his answers seemed supportive of natural birth. But eventually it was clear that a scheduled c-section was his preference.
To be fair, I probably would have had a c-section with any doctor (first pregnancy, footling breech), but Dr. Seeker gave no support for trying to avoid having a surgical birth and seemed confused that I was upset about having surgery.
If you are looking for a doctor who will support your desire to have a c-section, then Dr. Seeker is a good choice. If you are looking for someone who trusts you and your body, look elsewhere.
Dr. Seeker is the best doctor ever. I had been told by doctors that I would never have children. I sought out to see Dr Seeker based on a co-workers urging. I've seen him for over 10 years now and I have a wonderful little girl thanks to his patience and dedication to helping me overcome my setbacks. Also, I can't rave enough over the nurses. They are all very knowledgeable and sweet. I feel like Dr Seeker is truly a gift from God with his wisdom and caring demeanor!
