This doctor was not my chosen obstetrician. I scheduled him for one obstetrics visit when I was 8 months pregnant (the group practice has pregnant patients rotate to see each doctor in the practice so you can be familiar with whomever is on call during your delivery). Thankfully, Dr. Heimburger wasn't the doctor on call when I delivered.

At this one appointment, I voiced a preferance to forego an episiotomy during delivery. He was completely unwilling to consider this request. He pulled a pen out of his pocket, drew a primitive picture on the paper-sheet covering the exam table and said, "This is your baby hole. This is your poop hole. This is where there is going to be a nasty tear if you don't have an episiotomy." I was mortified. I had done much research on the controversy of episiotomies, and I was insulted by his "you have no idea what you're talking about" attitude.

I delivered with a different doctor who honored my request. I had NO episiotomy, NO tear, NO stitches, nothing. I had been doing perineal massage at home for three months, and the doctor who delivered my baby said, "It worked beautifully. You don't have a scratch anywhere."

Dr. Heimburger happened to be on call at the hospital the NEXT day after I delivered when I was still in the hospital with my 1-day old newborn. He visited my room, asked how I was feeling (again, asked how my "poop hole" was feeling). I told him everything was perfect since I had no episiotimy and no tear. He merely said, "Really" and kept examining my abdomen as though he didn't really care or remember our conversation.

Of all the fabulous doctors in this practice, this is the only one I really didn't care for.
