Congratulations and WOW, WOW, WOW - you are going to be very busy!!
Hi, my name is B. and I am a mother of two boys age 2 and 3. I went to Dr. Peterfreund's practice, Bay Area Women's Care. It is a group of doctors and they have several offices throughout town. My direct doctor was not Peterfreund, I only saw him twice when I was on rotation, but he has an excellent reputation around town. I can share my personal experience with the practice and my doctor in the group.
My doctor in the group is Gregory Todd, M.D. and he delivered both my boys. My first pregnancy came with some complications and Dr. Todd was very thorough. He is never in a rush and answers all of your questions and concerns. He is patient, kind and professional. He is a great doctor and I do not say that lightly. I have had several health issues and have seen my share of doctors. I can tell you with all honesty, Dr. Todd is the best doctor I have seen regardless of his specialty.
The group, staff as well as doctors, were always on top of things. The staff is friendly and supportive.
I delivered both my children at Morton Plant Women's Center in Clearwater. They were fantastic as well. All delivery and recovery rooms are private and the nursing staff was exceptional. I have many friends that have delivered there.
HOSPITALS AND NICU LEVELS - this is what I know
Morton Plant Mease, Clearwater-NICU level 2 with a neonatalogist on staff.
All Children's Hospital - NICU level 3 (only a children's hospital)
Bayfront Medical Center - NICU level 2 - located next door to All Children's Hospital (I have not heard great things about this Hospital)
The only hospitals that I know of in this area that deliver babies and have NICU level 3 in the same hospital are in Tampa - Tampa General Hospital and St. Joseph's Hospital.
I don't know about Mease Countryside
God Bless you and your family!!!!
