I delivered recently at Capital Health with Lawrence OB/GYN. First, Capital Health is a wonderful hospital and the nurses I encountered during delivery and during postpartum care were terrific.

Overall, I had a fairly good experience at Lawrence and other than Dr. Sheikh, the doctors seemed good. I would throw out a strong warning that unless you have an uncomplicated and low-risk pregnancy, do your best to avoid Dr. Sheikh. Based on my experiences with her, she doesn't have the best judgment when there are unexpected complications.

My delivery was a horrible experience and very different from what I had imagined it to be. The epidural had worn off by the time I was ready to push and I honestly didn't think I'd be pushing for too long and declined any additional pain relief medication. It turns out that I unsuccessfully pushed for over 3 hours. Dr. Sheikh was in and out of the room a lot which was ok but during the time she was in the room, she didn??t do much except while in the room except encourage me to push harder and to tell me that I was doing a great job. Well, the encouragement is nice but when she was in the room, she wasn??t really ??there? and paying attention to me. I could tell because when looked up in between contractions, she was texting or looking at her phone.

There was a pretty sharp nurse who saw that the baby was not in the correct position and coming down crookedly. This would later explain how the last two hours of hard and active pushing did not advance the baby down the birth canal AT ALL. It would have been helpful at that point if Dr. Sheikh would have done something about it other than tell me to keep pushing harder for a baby that was not in a position to vaginally delivered. The baby was also in distress and so I was told to push after every other contraction. After over 3 hours, she tried using a vacuum and said she would try 3 vacuum attempts. After the 1st attempt, the baby was in such distress, she decided for an emergency c-section. They had difficulty removing the baby even with the c-section.

So, I know that even thought you don??t have a choice in who delivers you, I hope that you have someone other than Dr. Sheikh especially if there are unexpected complications which occurred in my case.

Other than very long waits for every appointment, I had a good experience with both pregnancies at this practice. I really liked all the doctors except one... and yep, she also told me I gained too much weight (even tho I was never overweight and gained only 30 pounds each time!) I do have to admit that she was very skilful in the delivery room, though.

I would highly reccomend this practice. All of the practitioners are wonderful. You do wait a while to see some of the female doctors, thats a down fall. Also, there is one doctor there that if your an ob paitent she tells you that your too fat-but yet she is this tall, thin as a stick doctor. Dont we wish we could all be that little. The nurses are all for the most part good and the front desk isnt bad either, there is some annoying desk girls but all in all aWonderful place for the most part.

Very disappointed. The doctor I liked was on vacation and the one I got stuck with at delivery did not agree with anything he told me. Then he left and I got stuck with some ditz doing my C-section. I saw them all throughout the pregnancy and they assured me that they were all on the same page but that certainly was not the case. Never went back. I did like Mecer Medical Center though. Oh and that was my 5th child so I think I know what I'm talking about.

Lawrence Ob-Gyn also has an excellent Nurse-Midwifery practice, separate from the docs (4 CNMs) and 2 great Nurse Practitioners as well. I would recommend them all without hesitation.

I started using this practice when I became pregnant with my twins. The Doctors are extremely professional & thorough. Everything is done right in the office, ultrasound, lab work, etc. which is convenient!!!

I have been going to lawrenceville obgyn for a couple of years now. All the doctors have great background checks and reputations. The only disappointing factor is that when you have an appointment - the wait is forever. This is the same if you are waiting for a call back from one of the doctors too.

Lawrenceville OBGYN had a wonderful staff and great doctors. I personally saw a nurse practitioner and she was wonderful. I am not a big fan of the OBGYN, but she made my visit very comfortable and painless. They were very thorough with the examination and contacted you as soon as the results came in. Unfortunately I moved, so I can no longer see them, but I would recommned them.

PROS: Great staff
CONS:

This is an excellent group of physicians. I started going here when I was pregnant. They rotate you through the staff so that if you deliver and they are on call you are already familiar with them. I can understand why someone would not like that and I didn't think I would either. It turned out there was only one doctor that I didn't really like but I've heard others say he was their favorite. I usually go for easygoing but this one is serious and direct. My point is that their all good and have tons of experience.

I still go here and have no reason to switch practices. This is a very busy practice so you usually have to wait a while for an appointment.

They are affiliated with Mercer Medical Center in Trenton. I also know they have a midwife on staff if you are interested.
