  • I would go with whatever you were more comfortable with. The clinic still has professionals and people who know what they're doing.

  • I go to the Dr.'s office, I HATE IT! My doctor is such a butthole. She barley knows what she's doing..
    I also heard the clinic is way better than the Dr.'s office..

  • I think they are both fine. i dont think one is better than the other. at the clinic you may get more one on one time with your doc, which some women, and men, like better, because they can spend more time talking to the doctor and getting questions answered and such, without being rushed =]

  • is your clinic patient and compassionate with you, taking their time? lots of obs are rushed and extremely impersonal. I'm done having babies but if there were any with midwives or nurse practioners in obs offices with my insurance, i wooulda gone there. great care and compassionate care are most important no matter.
