I have been seeing Dr. Ahlering for over 20 years. He has diagnosed and treated me for several serious things over the years and also delivered my daughter. I trust him implicitly. My only complaint would be that sometimes I have to wait a long time in the waiting room before being seen. He always listens to what I have to say and is liberal with the free samples. I have recommended him to friends and family over the years and he has never disappointed me or made me regret the recommendation.

The doctor in this practice is way too busy! Every time you go to see him, you have a terribly long wait. Then when it is finally your turn, he spends two seconds with you. Trying to make an appointment for anything other than a routine well appointment is a nightmare! I would not recomend this doctor!

The staff at St Louis Womens Healthcare is awesome, and so is Dr. Ahlering. But Dr. Muckerman only cares about money! It's all about what is good for his practice, not the patient. I was closely monitered by the nurses and nurse practitioners with my high risk pregnancy, but felt all Dr. Muckerman cared about was the finances of my pregnancy. When I went for my post partum check up I saw the nurse practitioner, and when I saw Dr. Muckerman in the hall, he wouldn't even look me in the face! My sister in law saw him for her pregnancy and he ignored her high blood pressure and she ended up in the ICU after delivering her baby ten weeks early. She was on a ventilator and almost died, thanks to her blood pressure being ignored. The only way I would ever recomend this office is if you are going for gyn issues and can see either Dr. Ahlering or the nurse practitioners.

Is there negative starts to select? Back in 1999 I underwent a Laproscopic surgery by a doctor at this office. My Op report says and I QUOTE that my female parts were "obliterated by adhesions" and "neither ovary or tube was visualized because of thick, dense adhesions". This is all due to endometriosis. At that time I did not have medical insurance. During my surgery my op reports also says that they "stopped the procedure in fear of perforating the bowels". When I went back to schedule another surgery, (so that my bowels would be properly prepped, per their notes) my doctor REFUSED to do the surgery because I did not have medical insurance. NOW, as of today...I am still battling endometriosis and infertility. Had this doctors properly cared for me all those years ago, I feel my condition would have been much better today than it is now. Thanks to this practice carrying more about money, I have battled infertility, endometriosis, endometrioma, PCOS and now have lost my left Fallopian tube. Thank you for that!

i cannot say enough about the care i have recieved. i see dr. muckerman and have for years, he delievered both of my boys. they are very cautious and do not take risks with anything. i never had a problem speaking with a nurse, they are just as helpful and always seek dr. advise when they need it. i strongly disagree with the previous comments made about the office not caring. i am thankful for my two boys everyday and greatly appreciate the care we all recieved during my pregnancies.

My mom has gone to them for years and naturally when it was time for my first gyno visit I went here. My mom see's Dr. Muckerman. He is the man who delivered me. I see Dr. George Ahlering. Originally I saw two of the female nurse practitioners, Heather Siebers and I believe someone named Jen. I really liked both of them! However I had to get a surgical procedure called the LEEP performed to remove some abnormal cells on my cervix and had to switch to one of the Dr.s. I chose Ahlering because I felt seeing the doctor who delivered me might be weird. Until recently I've had to go in every 3 months as a precaution due to abnormal cells returning. They are cautious and wanted to keep a close eye on it in case they decide to turn cancerous. Recently, the cells have disappeared and I am grateful for his attentive care to the condition. He is very personable. I am 21 and about to graduate undergrad school and he always asks how i'm doing in school and etc. I've changed birth control 3 times (once because it got too expensive, once because I didn't like and another because it negative ads scared me). Everytime he has attempted to suit it to my needs and given me a ton of samples (6+ months worth each time). They are sometimes hard to get ahold of but that is understandable because of the size of their practice. I feel like they return my calls in a timely manner given this minor setback. The staff is caring and attentive. I highly recommend them to friends, family, and even strangers!

I am a Registered Nurse and am also a Patient of Dr. George Ahlering, but Dr. Richard Muckerman delivered my baby girl. I must say that my experience at that office was one of the best I have ever had. The staff from the time I walked in to the door were very friendly, and helpful. I was a high risk pregnancy, so therefore was seen sometimes once a week. My appointments included Non stress tests, Progesterone injections, Ultrasounds and every single person was ALWAYS on top of my care. I even received unsolicited phone calls to see how I was feeling. I in NO WAY agree with the previous statement of how horrible the care is at St. Louis Women's Healthcare Group. The clerical, nursing, and the doctors are wonderful. I recommend this practice to anyone.

Dr. Muckerman, my long-time then trusted ob/gyn, removed my uterus and both ovaries (castration) for a benign cyst on one ovary. He used ovarian cancer fear tactics and said that everything MUST be removed. He referred me to an oncologist and then did NOT follow his recommendation to only remove the ovary with the cyst although some actions by the oncologist are also suspect.

Dr. Muckerman did NOT inform me of all the permanent negative health consequences of living without these organs (e.g., 7x risk of heart disease and increased risk of all cause mortality, increased risk of osteoporosis, rapid muscle loss, rapid collagen loss, bladder and bowel prolapse, loss of sensation due to severed nerves and vessels, loss of pelvic support, spine compression leading to abdominal distension, risk of depression and anxiety, etc.) Nor did he inform me of the risks of hormone replacement. His only comment about hormones was that they are easily balanced which is NOT true. And hormones CANNOT adequately replace those produced by the body to keep us healthy.

Don't think that you are safe with this doctor since the drive into St. John's Mercy Medical Center bears his name as does the campus garage. Muckerman Drive and Muckerman Garage may just be indicative of the revenues generated by Dr. Muckerman and/or his ob/gyn father, Dr. Richard Muckerman I. Hysterectomy is BIG business in the U.S. to the tune of $17B per year. And St. John's is a key player. Their Graduate Medical Education (GME) website actually states "Abdominal and vag**** hysterectomies are the bread and butter of the gynecological inpatient rotation." This is indicative of it being the bread and butter (livelihood) of the ob/gyn specialty. Why else would there be 600,000+ hysterectomies every year in the U.S. such that 1 in 3 women over the age of 60 has had one? I suspect the desire to continue the lucrative industry of hysterectomy also played into my being gutted as GME students assisted with my surgery to remove a perfectly healthy uterus and a perfectly healthy ovary.

Go to hersfoundation dot com to learn the truth about hysterectomy and/or ovary removal. Quite shocking that these surgeries are still being done for benign conditions!

Makes me wonder if Dr Muckerman would be so quick to remove his gonads (testicles) for a benign cyst. If not, then why does he do so to his patients? I can only suspect greed and power! Ovary removal is the same as testicle removal=Castration!

And ratemd has some pretty disturbing ratings too (5 frowns out of 7 ratings).

Cons: He lies and instills fear in order to remove healthy organs

I am a nurse & have worked in the OB-GYN area for years.

The Ahlering Brothers & their father as well as Dr. Muckerman & his father are well know in St. Louis. I have chosen them for my physician & think they are the best. Dr. Muckerman performed my hysterectomy & has been my doctor for years.

The treatment I received from St. Louis Women's Healthcare Group last year was beyond unacceptable. I contacted when I found out I was pregnant. The ob/gyn who handled my previous pregnancies is now a member of this group and I hoped to see him even though it has been a number of years since I was treated by him. The office was willing to get me in right away because of pregnancy related problems but informed me that my dr no longer delivered babies and that I would be seen by him only for the first few months and then turned over to an associate. This was acceptable to me. I could detail a terrible experience but I will summarize it by saying that I was seen once by a nurse practictioner and once by a nurse over the next six weeks. I was sent to the ER three times and finally had home health services. The staff at St. Louis Women's Healthcare Group did not follow up to make certain I was receiving what I needed and did not seem to care. Despite many, many phone calls I was never allowed to speak with a doctor but only a nurse. While certainly I should have changed doctors sooner it is difficult to make clear decisions while very ill. By the time I did change doctors I had been sick for six weeks, had lost over 25 pounds, had not put anything in my by mouth for over two weeks and both my husband and mother both believed I was about to die. At this point the staff at St. Louis Women's Healthcare Group would not even return my phone calls any more!

Fortunately for me I changed to another doctor who was able to get my symptoms under control very quickly and saved both myself and my unborn daughter.

Never again will I set foot in the offices of St. Louis Women's Healthcare.
