Looking for a high risk ob on Long Island

I am newly pregnant (I've had 7 m/c so this is really scary for me to even post).
I am looking for an OB that either works closely with a high risk group or is a high risk dr.
I was with Dr. Toles and Dr. Meirowitz at LIJ . I will never set foot in Dr. Toles office ever again. He refused to do a sonogram at 16 weeks. He did a heartbeat check and said it was enough. I went for my anatomy scan at 20 weeks and the baby had died. If he had done a scan at 16 weeks he may have seen the baby was extremely small and then monitored me more closely. My D and E could have happened a lot sooner then 20 weeks.
Dr. Meirowitz and her group were great; however, I will need a regular OB to work with them.

I would also consider switching to Dr. Klein or another high risk dr.
Please let me know your thoughts.
Can't thank you enough!
xoxo

Re: Looking for a high risk ob on Long Island

Congrats!! That's such great news!!! I see Dr. Alex Kofinas and Dr. Jeffrey Miller is my OB. I love them both. They monitor me both very closely. I get weekly sonos since they both see me every 2 weeks, alternating between the 2 of them. You would deliver at Winthrop though. I had no problems at Winthrop though last year. The nurses were all great.

Congrats

I see dr. Klein and when I was pregnant and spotting/bleeding he would make sure they saw me no matter what to calm me down. Yes this meant long wait times but it was reassuring. In the end it wasn't viable but during the 9 weeks he was great!
