I switched to Dr Tchabo for my second pregnancy both because we had moved and I heard good things. Initially, everything was fine, the wait times are very long and visits are short, but that really seems like the norm. My last appt was on a Friday (at 27 weeks) and I told Tchabo about some contractions I had been having that were starting to concern me. He waved it off as normal BH and I left. That Sunday, I was admitted to the hospital in pre-term labor. Drugs to stop the contractions, shots for baby's lungs in case they couldn't stop labor, the whole thing. Dr Tchabo wasn't there - which was fine, it was Sunday, and Dr Martinez who was on call was great. But everyone assured me I would see Tchabo in the morning. After an ultrasound the next morn, I was discharged but never actually saw Dr Tchabo. A resident came in after talking on the phone with him and gave me his instructions - continue meds, bedrest and come in and see him on Monday. Now I have never really liked the office staff - not friendly and what kind of people get annoyed when you can't remember to bring your old appt card in? - but they outdid themselves this time. I called and explained why I needed the appt that Monday but was told that the dr was not in on Mon. So I asked for Tues. Tues was booked full - 40 patients. No mention of accomodating me even though this was more than just a regular check up. I asked for Wed, but that's surgery day, no patient appts. I would rather not wait until Thurs, so I asked if there was any way to squeeze me in on Tues. I got a big sigh, was told I could come in and wait. I said okay, when should I come? She said it didn't matter since they were so booked and asked when I would like to come. I said I would just come at 8 when the office opened. No good, they weren't seeing patients unitl 9:30. I said fine, 9:30. She then says, we have two patients at 9:30 already. I almost hung up the phone...in the end she told me to come at 10 and wait. I really do try not to make a big deal out of inconveniences, and give the benefit of the doubt, but I feel like things are getting a little ridiculous. 40 patients scheduled in a 7 hour day? That's almost 6 patients an hour on a regular day, what would happen if a patient went into labor? Does Tchabo just let his office get completely backed up or does the patient get to be delivered by another doctor and/or some residents? I am seriously considering switching doctors.

Dr. Tchabo is an outstanding OB. He delivered my last two babies, and got me safely through difficult and rather dangerous pregnancies. He's the busiest man in the world but always gave me his full attention during my visits. He hasn't his equal for experience and patient care. I think the previous reviewer must be giving a very skewed interpretation of actual events: Dr. Tchabo is the BEST.

Do not go to this Dr. for prenatal! He may ahve great credentials, but that man pushes patients into his schedule and overfills which leads to a disregard to all. Not only have they lost most of my record of my entire pregnancy, making switching doctors increasingly hard, but he disregarded to inform me of a genetic problem with me that my husband needed to be tested for in the first trimester, and I am now in my last. The only reason I became aware of this is becuase I switched doctors and read my own records (the few pieces that were actually given to me). They lost my initial tests and just say, well we cannot find it. Terrible, Terrible Pregnancy experience. Even the nurses complain openly to patients that he fills the schedule with too many patients.
