I should have written this review two years ago when this happened. I saw Dr. Carrillo for 2 years and only for annual GYN check ups. The first year, as a new patient, she asked me my sexual history and grilled me about my current long term relationship. She told me that in order for me to continue to be her patient that I had to bring in HIS medical records and his recent blood work. I understand that my health care is her priority but this was pushing the boundaries. I kind of left baffled but didn't put too much weight into it. Still, it was on my mind when I was going in for my next annual appt. When I saw her I asked her about different birth control options (I was on the pill). She asked me why I would want to do that. I said that I had no plans to get pregnant soon and wanted longer term coverage. She then launched into how at 28, I was really "pushing it" on my time limit to have kids and that I needed to hurry up and get pregnant. That she shouldn't even be giving me birth control pills as it was and that she wasn't willing to discuss longer term birth control methods. This was after she started the appointment by asking me how my "roommate" was. I couldn't figure out what she was talking about until I realized that "roommate" was her way of asking me how my boyfriend was (we don't live together and in fact are long distance). She wouldn't even say his name or title and suddenly wanted me to have babies with him! She ended the appointment by saying that she would reluctantly give me one more year of birth control pills but said that if I wanted more I would have to see another person in her practice who was willing to prescribe. She was actually cutting me off from birth control! I left in tears but once I calmed down got angry! What an irresponsible health professional (I myself am in healthcare)! God help a person who goes to her as a patient who has NO plans to have kids. I found a wonderful new place to go to who have never pressured me to go out and get pregnant or threatened to withhold birth control from me. Also, the "roommate" and I are still together, getting married and certainly won't be discussing our reproductive plans with her as I'm sure she wouldn't even see me since I am "over the hill" now.
