I am looking for a new female OB/GYN that is affiliated with ABMC in Elk Grove Village. While I LOVE my current OB/GYN, his practice is VERY busy and I often have to wait several weeks to get an appointment (if not months!). The type of practice I am looking for is similar to what I see on the Discovery Health Channle tv show "Deliver Me." After watching that show frequenly, I am beginning the think that there's something "missing" from my current practice. Anyone have any suggestions? I am open to a male doctor, but perhaps the something "missing" is a woman's touch. I look forward to any suggestions you may have!

What can I do next?

They were very flexible with scheduling, etc. and everyone in the practice including nurses and staff are extremely friendly. Dr. Schaub was my doctor, but I had most of my appointments with Nicole Quigley just because I wanted specific times for my appointments due to my 2-year old's schedule. I had a post c-section complication and it was handled by Dr. Yockey. So you can see everyone in the practice works together. I would recommend them to anyone.

Also, I started out at AB in EGV, but after the tour, I decided I wasn't thrilled with the facilities. I delivered at Northwest Community Hospital, which now has a brand new wing with very high-tech set up. Advanced Women's Care delivers at both locations.

Why not try a midwife? They are so much better for normal healthy births and can always refer you to a Dr if there are complications. They spend a lot of time with you and help educate you and answer your questions. I have heard good things about Midwest Midwifery...they used to have their own webpage but now when I look them up I only get a very small page on the Alexian Bros site. I would maybe call Alexian Bros to get their info, or Bonaventure Medical Group, which is who the webpage says they are affiliated with now. Good luck!

If you find that, let me know. I have had 3 babies with three different practices and never saw the kind of care that is displayed on Deliver Me. I think they amp it up for TV. Most busy practices are just that-busy. They barely let you ask a question before they are out the door and on to the next patient. I spent more time in the waiting room, with the ultrasound tech or on the NST monitor than I did seeing the doctor and I had a complicated pregnancy with my third. If I end up having a fourth, I will be shopping for yet another practice. I will say Alexian Brothers in Elk Grove was the best hosptial experience. I was there with my first, and loved it! I was a bit disappointed with St. Alexius in Hoffman with my second, and extremely unhappy with Northwest Community. I delivered my third there last August right before they finished the new wing. I was in the overflow post partum section with shared rooms, and community showers in the hallway not in the room. Disgsuting! Definitely get someone affiliated with Alexian Brothers!
