Blog: Obstetricians Behaving Badly

baby“Dealing with uninformed obstetricians is getting old. Overall, about four percent of opioid addicts are pregnant, according to past data. At one of the opioid treatment programs where I’m medical director, the percentage is a bit higher at five or six percent, but it seems like many more. Maybe it seems like more because of the unpleasantness I encounter when I contact these patients’ obstetricians, to coordinate care with them. Aside from a few pleasant exceptions, I dread calling these OB’s.”
