May be okay for general well woman care but I wish I hadn't put my pregnancy and delivery experience in his hands! During the pre-natal care he seemed to dismiss the few questions that I had that I thought were important with either "theres no way to tell until you are in labor" or "we won't know until after the baby is born" my main two questions that he dismissed and refused to explore turned out to be exactly what I was worried about (that I had too narrow of hips to deliver easily and that my baby was very large) and led to a terrible labor and delivery that even the pediatrician had heard the story of from the labor and delivery staff! Dr. Rizvi saw me about 3 minutes during my 26 hour labor, only long enough to quickly break my water and EXCRUTIATINGLY painfully insert an internal fetal monitor (the most painful part of the whole labor without an working epidural and of the delivery via c-section). I was later advised by another OBGYN that the fetal monitor insertion must have been done horribly wrong to cause that much pain. I am built very tiny with very narrow hips and yet Dr. Rizvi allowed me to labor with an improperly positioned NINE pound baby for 26 hours before he decided to do a C-Section. It seems to me that he has a routine that he will follow with every patient regardless of their individual situation. Because of this I ended up having to be put under General Anesthesia (my epidural wore off after 2 hours) to have my C-section, therefore missing my babys birth and the first hour or so of her life, and later had to have a blood transfusion to recover from the C-Section. I feel this may have all been avoided if I had been allowed to continue my labor when I went into labor at 36 weeks (my baby would have been about 7 lbs then) but against my wishes, instead of investigating to see if my baby was ready to be born he just stopped the labor, no questions asked and no in person exam done. After this I never went back into labor and had to be induced at 40 1/2 weeks. My baby was also born bruised up from the Pitocin smashing her into my ribcage for hours and hours before she was born. My husband and I were only planning on having one baby and I very much wish my labor and delivery would have been a better experience for all three of us.
