worst experience EVER – NIGHTMARE ABORTION done by DR. CRIST, I DO NOT recommend this place OR this Dr., i previously stated that Dr. Crist was good, but he IS NOT. This is what hapened later than same day (two days ago) that i posted the first review. I had my procedure done at around 10am. I was fine until later that same night, i was sitting on my couch about 11pm, i felt a terrible cramp come on. i could feel myself bleeding, so when i stood up to go to the bathroom, blood and bloody solid blobs came out EVERYWHERE. i caught this stuff in my hands trying to keep it from going on the floor, with no luck becuase there was SO MUCH. More came out in the toilet. the thick maternity pads were defensless against this stuff. so after that stops, a little bit later, same thing happens. i did not believe this was normal, so i took myself to my local E.R. my private area was in so much pain i could not sit. I had to push my feet against the floor of the car to push myself up off the seat in order to drive. By the time I got to the E.R. i was sitting in another pile of this stuff, and had to change clothes in the parking lot, luckily i brought some extra with me. After more stuff coming out at the hospital, and testing and exams the ultrasound found that there was still lots of debri inside my uterus, and that Dr. Crist did NOT get it all out. I can understand a little....But this much? i probably FILLED the toilet five times with the gunk that came out of me. this stuff was literally placenta, and i'm not sure if there were baby parts in it or not, i DO NOT want to think about it. but of course, the nurse at the Crist Clinic told the whole group of girls that it would only take ONE MINUTE and she was right. Dr. Crist DID NOT take the time to make sure any of it came out! there are serious side effects and complications if anything is left in there. you can get serious infections inside the uteris, leading to losing the ability to become pregnant, having a hysterectamy (completely removing the uteris and overies causing you to go thru menopause) and even death. the hospital told me i would have to have a D&C done, which is the same thing as an abortion, but its a necissary medical prodecure done by REAL doctors after you have a misscarriage, or in my case, an abortion gone wrong. the staff at Craven Regional Hospital in New Bern were extremely compassionate and caring. they hugged me and held my hand as i cried, talked sweetly to me and told me i would be ok, and one doctor even cried with me as i told her how much i regretted getting the procedure....at the crist clinic, nobody spoke nicely to me, much less held my hand or hugged me, and when i lay sobbing on the abortion table after it was done, trying to tell the nurse how the ladies up front had treated me, she gave me attitude and blamed it on me. the hospital also made sure i was asleep for the procedure, where you are wide awake at crist, and they also gave me proper medication so that i was not in pain when i woke up. the Crist Clinic gives you ONE motrin 800, and me and all the other girls were doubled over crying in pain in the recovery room. the hospital also sent me home with proper medication, a perscription for percoset where like i already said, all we got at the crist clinic was ONE motrin 800. i spent 1am till 5pm in the hospital, becuase of Dr. Crist's shoddy abortion procedure. honestly, in my opinion, regardless of my experience, i would not want to go to a doctor like that for my prenatal care if i was going to have a baby. i know if i could hear the other girls screaming and crying in the other rooms, the women that were there for prenatal care had to have heard it too.
obgyn – This place is awful! the customer service is horrible. I'm not sure if I spoke with a nurse or receptionist but she was so rude n kept calling me hunny when i'm probably older then her. They NEVER answer their phones to make appointments and if you leave a message like asked they never return your call. I'v never been to a place that was run soooooo poorly! I have already switched my Dr and would recommend doing the same if your not willing to put up with such incompetence.
Absolutely no children allowed and 70 minute wait times. – I arrived with my 2 year old 20 minutes early for my first prenatal visit only to find no less than 7 signs on the door stating that children are absolutely not allowed in to the clinic for any reason at all, no exceptions. This would have been great information for the staff to tell me when I made my appointment a month ago. Or maybe post on your website so new patients have some clube before they show up. How on earth can a prenatal clinic be such an unwelcome place for children??? After calling someone to come pick up my daughter I was able to make it inside the door. I found the staff to be unfriendly. 70 minutes after my scheduled appointment time I still was not called so I left. 70 minutes after appointment time is unreasonable. I was already uncomfortable with the clinic knowing they perform abortions but was willing to give them a try. After the day I had with them, I switched my prenatal care. Hopefully I will have more luck at the next place.
