I went to this practice for all of my prenatal care and delivery of my 1st child- and my experience was a nightmare. Throughout the prenatal care I felt like the doctors I saw were always rushed and never really got to know me. I actually preferred seeing their NPs as they spent more time answering questions and providing education.
Then, I unfortunately had life-threatening complications during my delivery. Without getting into a lot of detail, it took Dr. Van Eken far too long to find out what was wrong (a simple ultrasound was needed) before she performed surgery. After surgery, she told me everything was fine, to come back in six weeks for a standard check-up, and then never followed up. I called her a few times in the next couple of weeks due to complications, and she brushed off my concerns as usual recovery. Well, a couple weeks later I developed a massive infection and it turns out the initial surgery was never completed properly. I had to see another doctor to have the same surgery repeated and they were shocked at how much was missed.
What makes me so angry is that every time I brought up my concerns about my symptoms, Dr. Van Eken made it seem like I was over-reacting. Instead, she should have followed up with my care, especially after a major medical procedure. I am furious with the care this practice provided during and after the birth of my child. I would warn anyone against using Valley Women for Women and recommend that they use a smaller practice where they will know exactly who will be delivering their child.
