we just started to go to the maplewood clinic b/c it's closer to home. we transfered from woodbury. all of the nurses are great there, and the doctors as well. I especially like one of the receptionists who always takes the extra time to greet us and talk to us and see how the boys are doing. this is our new clinic of choice. it is a new building too, so the rooms are very nice and updated in nice warm colors.

I used to believe these were good doctors. I saw them for several years, in fact. Then, I had a pulmonary embolism, and all my faith in these practicioners went out the window. One thing after another happened that seemed to defy all logic. The nurse at the coumadin clinic recommended that I stop taking Lovenox after being on it for three-four days, and only testing my INR/Protime once. I landed in the hospital a day later with three more blood clots in my lungs. It was a "anti-coagulant failure", something that was "rare". But I looked at the Patient Information sheet later, and found out that you should be on Lovenox and Warfarin for at LEAST 5 days concurrently when first starting out, no matter what your INR reading is, and should stay on them together until your INR stabilizes, not just has an "in range" number.

Not only did this happen, but after getting out of the hospital, the coumadin clinic nurse informed me that she would not be the one to tell me to go off of Lovenox again. I would be on it indefinately. I landed in the hospital again, this time of blood being too thin, because they had me on too high of a dose of Lovenox, which is weight based, unless you are obese, severely underweight, or have kidney problems. They insisted my blood did not need to be tested. Mistake number two for them. I have never gone back.

My doctor told me one day that she had a patient who had had four pulmonary embolisms, several strokes and a heart attack, was 40 years old, and came to see her smiling every time. Not only did this NOT comfort me, it did not instill confidence in either her standard of care, her ability to make me better, or her ability to be compassionate.

If you have something non-standard, don't see these people. If you just have the sniffles, go ahead. They were fine when I had bronchitis or a sinus infection.

PROS: good for normal, every day infections and whatnot
CONS: don't see them if you have ANYTHING abnormal
