Dr Virtue is very thorough. He never rushes and takes his time with each patient. The surgery he performed on me went very well. I would recommend him to anyone.

I would recommend this doctor to everyone I know. Not only has he delivered 2 of my children but he discovered i had cancer twice. Each time he referred me to a specialist and I was treated successfully. (Thyroid and melanoma) . I believe he may have saved my life. He also supported my successful VBAC (vaginal birth after cesarean).

Because there are so many doctors on the rotation, and because they all tend to be very intervention-friendly (induction/pitocin; c-section; antibiotics/IVs; vacuum/forceps delivery; etc.), I didn't feel like I knew any of them well enough before my due date. Also, they were not upfront with me about how many interventions were typically done for an average vaginal delivery. They also kept throwing out there that they might want to do a c-section or do a vacuum-assisted delivery, although there was definitely not a need. I ended up feeling scared into doing what they wanted me to do so I could avoid the major abdominal surgery that most OB/GYNs seem to forget that a c-section is. Next time, I would go to a smaller practice where I could really get to know the doctors, or to a midwifery practice. Also, I would either have a birth doula or a midwife at the birth. Finally, I would make sure to take a more in-depth birthing class than the one the hospital offered, like a Bradley class or a Lamaze class. The one at the hospital was too large, and not very effective because the nurse instructor kept saying things like how much we would "love" our epidurals and other interventions, instead of helping us cope with labor before then (or maybe even not need one). Finally, N FL OB/GYN knew I planned on breastfeeding, and they highly recommended Carithers Peds, but it turned out they are not helpful at all if you are having any issues with breastfeeding. Look elsewhere! I had to do research on my own to get help from lactation consultants, La Leche League, etc.

I chose North FL Ob/GYN because it listed by our insurance and it was the closest to our home at the time (expecting our first child).
They do rotate you through the doctors (since you never know who will be on call when you go into labor and they don't want "labor day" to be the first time you see them) and I found each of them to be excellent and to be great with their patients.
I appreciate the fact that you can request who you see. For example, of the current 3 doctors, one takes LOTS of time with you...which I'm not interested in at this point (my 6th pregnancy). Another will get you in and out as fast as you please (though she will certainly answer any questions, etc) which I LOVE since last preg. I usually had 4 small people along with me.
I also like that, at this point, having a bit of a history with them, they allow me to do things like take home the glucose test and take it an hour before arriving (so I don't have to sit there for an hour with all the little people.
They've been great for the labor (I've had 4 different drs.) and they really try hard to work out suitable appointment times. I live 30 mintues away, but I stick with them because they've been great.

When I first learned of my pregnancy, I chose North Florida Ob/Gyn as my clinic, due to the close proximity to my home and the fact that they were covered under my insurance. On my first visit there, I felt as though I was not wanted as a patient in this practice. Several of the nurses made unneccesary comments about my impregnation, and one told me that I would see a different doctor each and every time I visited, rather than having a primary doctor. The clinic seems as thought they have too many patients as is, and can't handle the stress of adding more. I would not recommend going to these doctors, unless you enjoy being criticized, and treated less importantly than you and your new baby are.
