@Miss Frenchie: normally, nursing staff should wear gloves during blood draws for infection control. it protects you as a patient, and also protects the health care professional.  (i’m a nurse myself).

I’ve found that by googling a Dr’s name you’ll find some reviews but typically word of mouth is the best way to go. I don’t really have that option either so I made my first appointment with the only Dr I had been told about. If I don’t care for him I’ll try somewhere else until I’m comfortable. This is one moment in my life that I feel like I have the right to be picky.

I actually just decided to find an OB GYN that I really liked. I was going to a guy and I REALLY didn’t like him (for various reasons- both his personality and his practice- rushed, no time for questions, rough). I realized that I would NEVER want to give birth with him as my doc, so I asked my GP for recommendations.

This male doc was highly recommended, but when I asked my GP, I asked whether she knew an OB that had things I was specifically asking for– besides being good at what she does, I wanted someone who was nice, would take time to answer questions, etc etc. When i gave specifications to my GP, she was able to narrow down her list of recommendations. I picked the one she recommended the most and I LOVE HER.

Do you already have a GP that could make a reco?
