I went to Women's Specialty and was diappointed with the quality of the care. The NP that first say me found some health issues that would need to be addresses. During the visit where she told me of the issues in a short manner she commented that she wished she could tell me not to worry but couldn't. Then she referred me to Dr. Jones who ordered test, never really told me what he felt was wrong and dumped me to a ob oncologist. Find another OB if you can, bad care found here

I have been going to Dr. Jones for about 10 years. I think he is a very good doctor. I followed him the last several times he moved.
However I was pretty disappointed that after calling for a week no one answered the phone at Pride Ob/Gyn. I called information,and looked online.
I eventually decided that I better find a new doctor since I am due for my annual check-up and having a few health issues.
I randomly called a doctor's office near my house, and was very surprised to find out that the girl who answered the phone knew all about Dr. Jones. And he had been at Women's Specialty Care for over a month!
At first I was relieved; and then annoyed. How did you just forget about your patients like that? I guess since I'm not an OB patient, it didn't matter. I decided to try a new doctor.
Dr. Jones always seemed to be a caring doctor before this.

During my pregnancy, the routine appointments proved to be a nightmare. Billing was always a hassle, and at one point the doctor prescribed a genetic test, but the office did not seek pre-authorization and we were stuck with a $1,400 medical bill.

Near the end of my pregnancy, I had more than the average amount of amniotic fluid. Jones-Monte sent me for two ultrasounds a week for three weeks in addition to the weekly v-exam and in addition to the ultrasounds to simply check the weight and height of the baby - that's 4 appointments a week for three weeks. This was just the first in a series unnecessary tests and procedures.

The constant doctor visits, and the demeanor of the office staff added undo stress. For example, after I had an ultrasound to measure the length of the baby, the ultrasonographer came running out into the waiting area as we were leaving to inform me that I had to wait there while she phoned Jones-Monte to see if I needed to go in for an immediate c-section. My bloodpressure went through the roof because this was the scenario I had tried to avoid for over a year. I even hired a doula. (Note: the ultrastonographer is not really a medical professional and had no right making a judgement about how I should deliver my baby. Ultra sounds are notoriously inaccurate, and my case was no exception. She measured the baby at 9.5 lbs. My baby was just over 8 lbs.)

Jones-Monte started to suggest a c-section when I was 38 weeks. The reasons Jones-Monte gave were nebulous, but her tone was dramatic. Even though the prediction of a large baby and higher than average amniotic fluid are not indications for an elective c-section according to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologistsand the American Academy of Family Physicians, Jones-Monte said things like "you have a higher change of shoulder dystocia and a higher chance of chord prolapse. If either of those things happen when you are not at the hospital your baby will DIE!" She became a bully.

Despite her dire warning, Jones-Monte agreed to do an induction a day before I was due (one week later). However when she did a v-exam close to my induction time, I had a very low Bishop score (no dilation, no effacement). For these reasons, Jones-Monte thought I would probably end up with a c-section anyway (self-fulfilling prophecy I wondered?). So after some deliberation, I called her office to cancel the induction because the last thing I wanted get induced,for the induction to fail and then have a c-section anyway because my body wasn't ready. The nurse on the phone was mean and rude, and didn't even pass along this information to Jones-Monte as I requested.

Long story short: I was scheduled for a c-section. When I showed at selected hospital (the hospital we had confirmed with Jones-Monte's staff) at 5 a.m., I learned my paperwork was sent a hospital 30 minutes away. I was told I would have to drive there. We got into the car and we were just about to get on the highway when I got a phone call from my mother who said she got a phone call saying I should turn back and go to the original hospital. I have no idea why they didn't phone me directly. When I finally had the procedure, Jones-Monte never acknowledged me. She simply started to cut. During the procedure, she chatted with the other doctor about how fattening granola is. The anesthesiologist was the only person explaining to me and my husband what was happening to me and my baby.

Now, I should acknowledge that Jones-Monte is an excellent surgeon and my recovery was good (I was physically active through out my pregnancy). It was simply not my choice to have an unnecessary c-section, and I feel violated for that reason. The last insult came when Jones-Monte did not want to see me (I am assuming) for a check-up after the c-section where my incision was to be checked. Her assistant checked me (who is not a nurse), and removed two staples that were accidentally left in at the hospital.

Pros: Good surgeon

Cons: Is very quick to perform a c-section, and will push for one

After having a C-Section with Dr. Jones-Monte I had to see Dr. Jones as Jones-Monte was sick. His bedside manner was very good and made me feel at ease about some complications I was having.
The wait time was pretty long and some of the office staff since the merge seem to be very over-worked. I think they may have taken on more than they can handle.
