I am obese and pregnant. I am looking for a doctor in the Salt Lake or Riverton area that is good with obese patients. I can handle up front and blunt. What I dont' want is someone condescending or judgemental. Let me know if you can help me with the name of a doctor(s).

What can I do next?

Check out Western OB/GYN (Dr. Robert Merrill) or Dr Hutchison or Burgett at Riverton OB/GYN/Granger Medical Clinic.
One other is Dr Kim Moreland at South Valley Women's Heallth.

I am also obese, and decided to switch doctors after my last pregnancy because my doctor was so condescending. I switched to Dr. Hutchison at the Riverton Medical Clinic. ###-###-####) I met with him last year for my annual exam and was VERY impressed!! I haven't had the chance to go through a pregnancy with him yet, but I think he will be great when I do. Good luck!

Umm I know it's a little out of the way. But I went to Timpanogos Women's Center and I had Dr. Young and liked him a lot. I'm obese and things went smoothly with my pregnancy. He actually would talk to me about my files and my life. I liked that a lot.

Dr. Russell Smith at Alta View Women's Center has been my OB through all 3 of my pregnancies. I was obese during my last pregnancy and it was never an issue. He is great!
