I found out a few days ago that I'm expecting again. I was not happy with the overall experience at Dr. Marotta's office last time so I'm looking to do something different. I don't want to go to Jefferson OB/GYN for various reasons. So I thought I would give Dr. Wolanski and Donna a try. I called on Monday and the receptionist took my info and said that a phone nurse would call me back but it probably wouldn't be until Tuesday or Wednesday. O.K. fine. Today's Wednesday so I call back and speak to a different receptionist. She tells me that it could be a couple of weeks before I hear back because they only call back on Wednesdays. Huh? Is their practice worth it?

Yes, they are worth it.  You probably won't be able to get in with Donna if you are already pregnant (usually you have to be her patient beforehand, because she doesn't take many births) but we went with Dr. Wolanski and love him.  It seems kind of hard to get in initially and then you likely won't have any problems after you do.

Well I got a call back from the intake person yesterday afternoon even though I had been told on Wednesday that it would like be weeks (WHAT?!?) before I got a call back. She said that Donna has already taken her two new patients for the month of July but she is going to talk to her on Monday and call me back. I'm a little undecided at this point what I want to do. I was pregnant back in the summer and the baby died. Dr. Levitt, at Dr. T's office, handled my D&E and both my DH and I really like him. But I've heard such great things about Dr. Wolanski and Donna that I feel like I should give them a try. I guess I'll wait to here the result on Monday and then decide what I want to do.

Both Donna and Dr. Wolanski are totally worth the wait if you can get in.  They are both really awesome and work great together.

Dr Wolanski is totally worth the wait! Hope you already saw him or Donna! Dr Wolanski delivered my first baby and my family has moved so much that now I am pregnant with my third I wish he could deliver this one too! I wished for the same with my second! He is very caring and encouraging! Also a girlfriend of mine was seen by Donna and she loved her too!
