I have gone to Dr. Marback for 8 years. She was my OBGYN through 2 healthy pregnancies and 1 miscarriage which was my most recent pregnancy. In my latest pregnancy which resulted in miscarriage I lost confidence in Dr. Marback. I had hyperemesis in the first trimester which was treated with IV therapy and anti-nausea medication. Dr. Marback seemed out of date with some of the medications and treatments that were available.
Since Metro Partners is a practice you see who ever is on call in the hospital. So I saw Dr. Lacaste, Hakim, Marback and Pezeshki. Depending on which Dr. I saw I got a different method of treatment and recommendations or medications. It was so confusing to me and my husband in a time of great distress and illness. In multiple instances I felt like I was left to choose which treatment route to take rather than the Drs. making a recommendation to me collectively.
Then when I did miscarry I decided to give birth to the baby so we could do as much testing as possible to determine the cause of death. But Dr. Hakim who was on call did not order the tests and a tissue sample was never taken from the baby. I didn't find out about it until after the baby was buried. This was devastating.
After everything, 2 healthy births with Dr. Marback and one miscarriage I feel like too much communication was lost between Drs. and it ultimately caused me great stress during an already stressful time. I will be looking for another Dr. soon. One that can handle the unexpected and work with the other Drs. in their practice to provide the best care for a patient.

I scheduled an annual physical exam with Dr. Marback, whom I saw on April 17th, 2010. Although I arrived fifteen minutes early for this appointment, I waited in the lobby (while completing 4.5 pages of paperwork) for over 30 minutes. Dr. Marback's med assist weighed me, took my vitals, and asked
me to wait for Dr. Marback to return to my (patient) room to await a breast exam/pap smear. Dr. Marback entered my room, and upon asking me only one question regarding my bio-identical hormone replacement history, proceeded to give me my annual exam. I asked it she was willing to be my primary care provider (I have a history of chronic hypertension---and high cholesterol, both of which are controlled using prescription medications). Dr. Marback stated that she did not feel comfortable being my primary care physician, as she "does not keep up with current changing medical standards of what blood pressure standards should be." What????? What MD is not required to keep up with current BP standards/practices? When I asked who she might suggest as a primary care physician (I was looking for a practiontioner that would be able to monitor my blood pressure checks/blood work for the statin that I take for high cholesterol---I see my current physician once every three months), she said that she would let me know. As of this writing, SURPRISE! I have yet to hear back from her. I intend to write a letter to both her and her supervisor at Metro Partners in Women's Health, as unfortunately she is the only Doctor at the Providence Park Medical Building who also works with bio-identical hormone replacement therapy. Overall, I felt that seeing her was a complete waste of time. She seemed disinterested in my health issues, and less interested in assisting me find a physician who could work successfully with my concerns/medical issues. I also reported my unfavorable experience with her to my Insurance Co., Aetna, as well as to staff at the Health Dimensions Lab where I receive my bio's for menopausal issues.
