alright so im having some issues with my doctor, this is my 3rd pregnancy. With my last 2 pregnancies , i was seen by wonderful doctors where i used to live, hubby and i moved out of state and i have a new doctor , which i liked at first but now im being apprehensive. Tell me if im wrong....
So ive been seeing this doc since i was 8 wks , I am now going to be 31 wks on thursday. I liked him at first , but as time went on i started to realize more and more that it seems as if he's always in a hurry, and i always tend to forget questions i want to ask him due to him being so quick when he sees me. I wait about 30 minutes before i see him and then when he finally comes in the room , he asks if everything is fine , checks the heartbeat and is gone in 5 minutes!!! LITERALLY. I dont even have time to gather my thoughts and ask him questions on things im concerned with because he's so quick to rush out, and to make matters worse i only see him every 6 wks. He even forgot to run routine tests to check for defects and things of that sort, when i told him about it he was like oh those shouldve been done months ago, they werent done yet?? uhhh no ur the doctor!!! then he tells me well from ur ultarsound a while back everything seemed normal so im not going to worry about it. I feel like im not getting adequate care and im starting to worry. Shouldnt i be seeing him more often now that im further along?? i just dont know what to do, i feel like its too late to find a new doctor but i dont want to keep going like this. What would u do?

Never too late to change doctors. It does not sound like you are receiving good care from this doctor. PS - I write my questions down so I don't forget to ask them.
