I am reviewing 3 of the Drs at Overlake O&G (whom also have an office in Lynnwood).
Dr. Paley...He delivered my second son. He was a very fun and personable dr. Had great bedside manner and was very caring. While I did not see him for Prenatal care, I would have without a doubt.
Dr Van Kiesel..She delivered my third son, with complications during pregnancy. Again, very personable. She took any precautions that were needed and stayed by my side until she knew all was ok.
Dr. Michael Lawler is whom I had the most experience with. I was referred to him by a friend and saw him for the care of all 3 of my pregnancies (as wella s his wonderful nurses Meg and Becky--the best nurses around!). I had 3 complicated pregnancies, pre term labor, cholestasis, Hypertension, etc. Dr Lawler amazed me by never taking chances, even if it was a small one. His concern was obvious for both my self and my babies. I was very nervous in many instances and he just reassured me. He has a very very pleasant bedside manner, soft spoken and very polite. He was always welcoming to both my husband and myself. He did necessary testing, but explained the reasons. I entrusted myself and my babies to his care and I am glad I did. I honestly, am not sure that baby #3 would have made it had it not been for his care.
My phone calls were ALWAYS returned, I was ALWAYS taken seriously and NEVER brushed off!
It's a hard practice to get into, and there is a reason. They are all state of the art Drs! I would have seen #1 and 2 without a blink, but I was very happy with #3. If you are looking for someone to entrust the lives of you and your baby with, Ihighly recommend one of these 3, and cant say enough good things about Lawler, Meg, and Becky.
