New City, New Doctor

So I have seen 2 doctors since my arrival last week in Jacksonville. The first doctor I was not so fond of. Actually, I didn't even get to meet the doctor at my first visit- but Ben and I decided after sitting in the waiting room for an hour that we did not think this was the doctor for us.
My next doctor's appointment was the complete opposite. Thanks to our friend Rebekah, who is also an OB/GYN, we were referred to a wonderful practice that lived up to all of our expectations. It is a practice of 5 female doctors, all in their early 30s. I even had a better feeling about them from just my call to make an appointment- they offered to mail me all of the paperwork beforehand so that I wouldn't have to fill it out at the office. And if you have ever had a baby before, you know there is TONS of paperwork.
So my new doctor's office is at Baptist Medical Center, which is the same hospital that Ben was born. As you can imagine, Ben thinks it is very cool that he and Noah will have that in common. When we arrived, we were greeted by a very nice receptionist who took all of my medical records and asked us to take a seat. And then a crazy thing happened, I was called back to be seen RIGHT ON TIME! All of the examination rooms are named after the doc's kids and/or dogs. I was in the "Mabel" room- a very cute pug that belongs to one of the doctors. The room was decorated with professional photographs of her. The nurse did mess up Ben's name whenever she called him back to join me- she called him Stan- but we forgave her.
We spent some time with the doctor, who was absolutely wonderful. She's pregnant as well and we both really liked her. She had quickly reviewed all of my records and sat and talked with us for a little while. I am very happy with our new doctor and am looking forward to the next 12 weeks until Noah gets here!

I'm assuming that Rebekah does not have a practice in Jacksonville? Or else you would've gone to her, or no? Either way, glad you found a good doc.

Say 'hi' to Stan for me ;-)
