Good OB/GYN

I'm not happy with my ob and wanted to know if anyone can recommend a good one? I live in Dana Point.
I'd like a doctor who is affeliated with Saddleback hospital.
Also, qualities which are important to me are:
patience
compassion
skill
someone who doesnt rush you in and out like a factory
not having to wait tooooo long after your appointment time to see the doctor (45-60 minutes was the average with my doctor)
feeling comfortable asking questions, no matter how "stupid" they are
thouroughness

  • Do an online search looking for OB in that area you should find sites where people have talked about each OB that is how I found my OB here in AK. Good luck it is hard to do.

  • Sounds like maybe you're actually looking for a midwife, lol. ;-)

    Have you done a search online to see what (who) is available?
    Do you have personal references from mama-friends?

  • MOST DOCTOR'S HAVE ONLINE WEBSITES. ASK IF YOU CAN COME JUST TO MEET THE DOCTOR VERSES THE EXAM, IF HE HAS TIME FOR A MEETING, HE WILL MAKE TIME FOR YOU THROUGHOUT. GOOD LUCK
