At about 7 months pregnant, I had to switch docs b/c of insurance. I got Dr. Polon. Now, don't get me wrong, he can be a terribly nice fella....but I think there are some major flaws in his practices. First of all, they push you through. The appointments are quick, rushed, and very hurried. At 34 weeks, he did a sonogram. He told me I had a very large baby. After this, I was very concerned, as I am generally fairly small. He told me not to worry. I asked more than once after 38 weeks if I should be worried about the size of the baby, and was told each time, no...baby is normal size. On one of my last visits, I gained 15 pounds (water weight) within TWO days. And no one worried or thought anything of it. When the baby finally came, I had a tough and quite horrible labor. After hours and hours, I was exhausted and could push no longer. One of the nurses actually jumped on me to push the baby out. I was badly torn and he did no episiotomy. I gave birth to a beautiful BIG 9 lb 9 oz baby girl. And I was in so very much pain. When I went home a day later, I could hardly move or sit. I was given 20 pain pills, that I took as directed, and the doc refused a refill, even though I was in some pretty major pain. Yikes. Never again with this doc. Beware!
