Dr. Joseph Tate is someone else to consider - always good to check out a couple of practices for yourself and explore all your options.
He delivers out of Crawford Long Hospital in Midtown Atlanta
He does Vaginal Breech births- even in first time moms....
He does Vaginal twin births- even if twin A is breech...
He does VBACs after multiple C-sections....
He has a 5% C-section rate.
He is easily accessible via email and phone- you don't have to jump through the hoops to try and talk to your careprovider.
Just another option He says his MD stands for "midwife in disguise"
(770) 449-8171 is his office's phone number
Just wanted to add that I tried the mw at Piedmont (Mary Jane) and met a LOT of resistence/hostility with even suggesting anything out of the 'norm'. I questioned the GTT test, refusing newborn vac, vit K, eye goo and didn't want to be weighed (I am a normal sized woman with 3 healthy babies prior ). I had to switch and I am soo thankful I did. Margaret was so amazing and supportive of my choices. She made our last birth truly special and made it feel like it was MY (and my dh) birth! I live in metro-atlanta and drove about 45min and it was worth every extra second in the car!
I did not ever birth with Dott, but I used him for back up in my first pregnancy. My experiences with him were mixed. I heard some negative things from another mama too. I never would think of him as "progressive." More old school. Old enough to remember when they did c-sections <10% and things were no worse.
