I went there to get a 2nd trimester abortion. These procedures are expensive and my insurance didnt cover it. I called first and they helped me connect with funds that cover part of the procedure for me. The clinics made calls and stayed in touch with me and the funds.
The day I got there for my first day of the 2 day procedure I was really scared. They called me in with another girl and made us wait in another room, then they call us one by one, to get our counseling and sonograms done. In the sonogram they dont show you anything or say anything to you about the baby, but the sonographer was really nice with me.
The counselor wasnt either nice or rude, she went straight to the facts like three times and ask me if i was sure about the abortion made me sign the papers and that was it.
Then they sent to the back room with a bunch of other women, where they give you a coat and a basket, you go in the bathroom get changed, then you wait with the others there in a small room. It wasnt that bad really, sharing the room with other women that were going to do the same as me, made me feel like I wasnt alone. Some of them where talking, some of them didnt say anything. Then they call you in.
The doctor, the nurse and the anesthesiologist are really nice, they talk to you about other stuff while they prepare you.
When I woke up I was in the recovery room with other nurse, she gave me painkillers and they helped me to sit down in a chair to rest for another 15 or 20 minutes. Then I got changed and they gave me instructions for the next day.
Since I had the two day procedure i had to go back the next day.
That day I had to take a pill to dilate my cervix even more. I got there early and they welcomed me again really nice and friendly. They gave me the pills and sent me to a room where I laid down and waited for the pills to make effect. They gave me covers and let me sleep in the room. Every now and then one of the nurses came to check how i was doing and she was really really nice and friendly. She talked to me for brief minutes and even rubbed my back for a while to sooth the pain.
Finally I went in to get the procedure done, the same doctor, nurse and anesthesiologist as the day before, they said hi and asked how i was doing. I laid back, when I woke up I was already in the recovery room.
They gave me pain killers again, and helped me move to a chair, where I waited for the anesthesia to wore down, then they checked my bleeding. Then i got changed.
They gave me the medicines and birth control, they are supposed to give you only one sample but the nurse gave me two. Then I went home.
While in the recovery room you can see others come from the surgery room. One of the girls woke up and started crying, the nurse talked to her and tried to keep her calm, the nursed was warm with her and treated her really good.
I recommend this place. They know what they are doing and they are fast and clean. The doctors and nurses are really nice.
