Hi and Welcome! You know I had the same situation when I came to Gainesville 2 years ago. My doctor(is a female) they are located at shands womans medical plaza. this is the phone number 352-265-8200. They take medicaid too just in case but also private health insurance. They are really good. when I have an appioment usualy I dont have to wait. Last time I was there was friday for a PAP and I was out in 45 minutes. I used to have another one and everytime I had an appoiment the doctor had to run to somewhere alse, after I was waiting like for 4 hours....that hapend like 3 times to me and I never came back. well, sorry for the long explanation.....hehe...I hope you find the right doctor for you!
sorry I forgot to tell you my Doctor name is Patty MCkey. But off course they have more doctors in there too.

NOT Dr. Cotter at NFRWC...His midwife, Cyndi Vista, is GREAT (I went to her for all 3 of my pregnancies), but since she wasn't qualified to do 'official' ultrasounds, I had to see the doctor, which was not a good experience at all for me. He accused me of some things that weren't true (I had a rough 3rd pregnancy), and had actually made me cry 2 out of the 4 visits I had with him.

 

Good luck with whoever you find!

Oh, Wow..  That is horrible.  Thank you for the letting me know.  I sure don't want to go through anything like that and I am so sorry that you had to as well!

I absolutely loved Dr. Cotter and his midwife Cyndi Vista! My mother does medical malpractice and was extremely impressed with how he handled my pregnancy and delivery. Everyone thought I was going to have a large baby (between 8-8.5lbs) for my frame (5'2" 118lbs), but noone knew my baby girl was going to turn out to be 10.1lbs. Dr. Cotter let me try natural labor, which didn't work. He made the call to do the c-section and obviously it was the right call. I have heard Dr. Agrios (All About Women OBGYN @ NFRMC)was good as well, but I highly recommend Dr Cotter's office.
Dr. Brazzel at NRFMC is great! :-) Good luck finding someone!
I love Dr. Agrios:) He has a office inside on the bottom floor of North Fla Reg. Hospital.  All About Women is the name of the office.   He delivered both of my kids. One was a vaginal birth the other c-section.  He always looks out for what is best for you and the baby.  Always a good experience with him.
I'll second Gainesville Gynecology Group. Dr. Ross' partner, Dr. Jennifer Alderman, is also excellent. I have been a patient of that practice now for about 7 years. They do not do OB, though. They give referrals. For OB, I chose Dr. Brazzel based on their recommendation, and he was wonderful.
