I was under Dr. Ralph's care through my entire pregnancy. When I was three months pregnant, he did the AFP blood test. He never discussed the result of this test with me. I always rushed to my visits with him. He didn't want me to ask him any questions. Even if I did one time, he said, "You need to stop reading books." A nurse from his office called me and told me that my AFP result came + for Down syndrome, but don't worry it is normal for my age range. She told me to go to another Dr for level two ultrasound. After I did the level two ultrasound, I asked Dr Ralph, what do you recomend about doing amniocentesis? He said, It is a personal choice, I can't tell you what to do. He also said most women don't do the amniocentesis. Unfortunatly I took his word for it. When I was in my labor, I asked him what happens if I don't do the c-section? He said,"Don't ask that kind of question to a doctor!" He never discussed doing c-section with me in my prior visits. Six months later my first child was born with Down syndrome. Since my husband and I were shocked, terrified, devasteded, and upset, he told us "Your baby is not at ICU, so you shouldn't worry that much." He needs to go back to medical school. I don't know how he graduated in the first place. He is the most incompetent, unprofessional, rude, and cold doctor I have ever seen in my entire life. I am concerned about those poor patients who are under his care. He caused emotional, financial, and physical distress to me as well as my family. Unfortuantly I couldn't sue him because he got lucky when the specialist who he referred me made me to sign the decline forms for amniocentesis. That specialist lied and manipulated my medical record. This is how they can get away from being sue. It is unbelievable and shocking.
