I HIGHLY Recommend Dr Christopher Riegel
Here's his website:
I've been seeing him for about 4 years now. His is the only dr who has taken my feminie issues seriously! He delivered my son Giovanni (now 2) and it was the best delivery I've had (I have 4 kids). He was all about what I wanted! We talked extensively about things like episiotomys, epidurals, walking during labor, etc. Although I was in the hospital (he delivers at Plano Presby) - he allowed me a lot of control over my delivery and my choices. He listened to all my concerns and everything I wanted and was or wasn't comfortable with.
He had gone out of town one weekend and I was under strict orders (lol) not to do anything that might cause me to go into labor (I was 3 weeks until my due date) and the Sunday he was due to come back -- sure enough, I went into labor. When I got to the hospital my contractions were really irregular, but I was dilating, and they tried to send in the OB on-call -- but I didn't want anyone but my dr --- so finally around 10 pm -- the nurse told me Dr. Riegel called the hospital to check on me (they had left messages), he had literally just walked in the door from his vacation! I labored for 12 hours (very irregular) and he came to see me and told me I could go home if I wanted, or he could break my water to induce labor (although it was 3 weeks early - the baby was ready!). He gave me all the choices!
He was also my dr when I lost a pregnancy and was very attentive. When we found out I lost the pregnancy, he was due to go out of town the next day for a conference. It was Thursday and he was leaving Friday morning and wouldn't be back until Monday. He asked if I wanted to let the miscarriage happen naturally (I hadn't yet miscarried), or if I wanted him to do the d&c --- I told him I wanted him to do it, so he sent me straight down to pre-op and scheduled me for first thing Friday morning (he couldn't do it right then b/c I had already eaten that morning) --- so he came in that Friday morning (when he wasn't even supposed to be there) to perform my d&c because he knew I didn't trust anyone else to do it!
He is also performing my hystorectomy in about 3 weeks. He is the only ob/gyn I've ever had who took my menstrual problems seriously (and I've been to at least 10 different ob/gyns). He has given me all the options w/ my hysterectomy, making every part of it my decision! He is aggressive in the sense that when there is a problem, he takes an aggressive approach to solve it, instead of just waiting to see what happens -- that is something I have really appreciated about him, knowing that he has not let my condition progress unneccesarily!
I have absolute faith and trust in him! He is a great Christian doctor, who really feels women should be informed and involved in all areas of their pregnancy and delivery process, and in all areas of their reproductive health!
Good luck to you and Congrats!
