Recommendations for OB GYN at Emory Johns Creek
My husband and I have decided to try for a second child this summer. We live less than 10 minutes from Emory Johns Creek, which would be the most logical place for us to have our next baby. My problem is ... my current OB GYN does not have privileges at this hospital. I was given the names of three OB GYN's who do have privileges, but I know very little about them. I was wondering if anyone is familiar with or has visited any of these OB GYNs ... Dr. Dori Kasparek (Complete Women's Healthcare LLC), Dr. Betty Anthony (Suburban Women's Specialists) or Dr. Suiza Chua-Lee (Suburban Women's Specialists). I'm curious to know if you would recommend or refer any of these doctors to your girlfriends. I am also open to other suggestions for OB GYNs in the area who have privileges at Emory Johns Creek.
Thank you in advance for your assistance.

I see Dr. Anthony as my GYN but have not delivered with her. I really like the state of the art facility and Dr. Anthony is very nice but again I don't know their practices when it come to obstetrics, I have only received routine yearly care from them. Very nice, clean, state of the art facility located in the building next to the hospital with courteous staff.

I work right across the street from Suburban Women's Specialists. They are brand new. I had an appointment with Deborah Carpenter. From my experience they were very nice pleasant and the facility is state of the art. I recommend you visiting and talking with them. My children are now 9 and 6 and I delivered them at Northside Hospital which is awesome as well... but just to let you know Emory is nice also.....

I was in your exact shoes 7 months ago - had to switch OB's mid pregnancy and due to insurance and a need for Johns Creek Hospital for the delivery - those 2 practices were my options. I chose Chua/Anthony b/c there were 2 in the practice - had nothing else to go by. I delivered last month with Anthony and had better birth experiences the previous 2 times I had given birth than I did this go round. Dr. Anothony created a feeling of panic when I was delivering that made me, my mom, and my husband think something was wrong with the baby. I delivered naturally / unmedicated all 3 times and it is a much more pleasant experience when you are able to stay relax and don't feel scared and rushed. Of the 2 doctors I preferred Chua but unless you are getting induced, you can't control who is on call when you go into labor. I feel both doctors are very competent or I wouldn't have stayed with them, but another practice may be better if you want a natural birth or want to avoid unnecessary medications. My first child was born with Preferred Women's Healthcare in Lawrenceville and Dr. Komyathy. She left the practice shortly after he was born. Someone recently told me Dr. Dori Komyathy and Dr. Dori Kasparek are the same person (name change due to marriage? divorce?). If that is true, I would prefer to deliver with her should there ever be a #4. Hope that helps... Good Luck!
