Nightmare - Do not go to Sipe

Your rating: 15 1
I saw Dr Sipe 6 weeks after my first miscarriage almost 5 years ago. I waited a long time to write a review because how he acted was so unprofessional, I was afraid my emotions were clouding my judgement, but read and see for yourself. Also, giving him the benefit of the doubt, maybe he's changed and is a kind person. I did a lot of research to understand what we would be discussing during the session, and told him up front that I would be asking questions. He said he liked it when his patients had done research so that they knew what to expect. After a few questions (which were very normal, logical questions, now that I have a few years of infertility treatments under my belt), he started getting very snippy. I finally said - you said you were ok with questions, but you seem frustrated, can I ask what's wrong? And he said (verbatim) - "I make the decisions about my patient's care and don't take directions from some website." I said - "I'm not asking you to take direction, I'm asking for my information, so that I understand what our options are." It went downhill from there. Long story short, he was unsympathetic and rude. By the end, I walked out sobbing and my husband followed behind me. As my husband walked out he looked at Dr Sipe, who rolled his eyes and mouthed "Good luck." I made the next appointment with Dr Kaplan and it was literally a world of difference. He was kind, sympathetic, no ego. He welcomed questions and listened. I would recommend him highly. By the way, after we had known Dr Kaplan a while, we talked to him about Dr Sipe and I won't repeat what he said but let's just say he wasn't surprised.
