Charles Todoroff MD
I just moved to the area and needed a physician. Dr Todoroff was the only Dr excepting new patients. I first had to be "excepted" which took a couple of weeks, then I needed to make an appointment which took another month. I went to see the Dr and immediately did not "click" with his nurse Margaret. She seemed to be a little irritated. Dr Todoroff was very pleasent and thourogh. Well, I was given a new anti-depressent and was told to call if I had any questions or side affects I wanted to ask about. I did. It took me a 9 days to get a reply back. POOR! I spoke to Margaret the nurse again and she was very short with me as if she did not have the time or the patience to talk to me. POOR! She told me she would see if the Dr would change my RX and refil another one. That was yesterday and I am still waiting. I am seriously considering switching to a more private Dr because it seems these Drs are speading themselves too thin. Also I am not a fan of nurse Margaret! So.....Dr Todoroff - Good, nurse Margaret - not so much!
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.
