I had a 16 week OB visit in Harrisburg and told the PA that I hadn't been able to keep anything down since the middle of the night the previous night & had diarrhea. She said these were normal pregnancy symptoms. When I started throwing up bile an hour later I called Dr. Gates office and was told to go to my local ER. They had me admitted and kept me overnight to administer fluids. My whole family caught the bacterial stomach virus. I feel if she had asked more questions, and not just wanted to get me out the door, my hospital time & my family's health would have benefitted.
I normally receive excellent care with Dr. Gates and his staff. This was one bad experience. I hope when I see Gates next week in Carbondale it will be addressed.
