I had never met this doctor until my son was crowning and ready to deliver. She was my doctors (Dr.Nishida) back up call for my delivery. First off, she was LATE to my delivery. I had the full NICU TEAM but no doctor, crowned mind you, The nurses said, she is finally on her way, she was parking, she was coming up the elevator etc. I was in labor for 32 hours! and I was stuck at 9.5 cm. for a lonnnnnnng time WTF?! where was she?!! She walked in and immediately DEMANDED that I had an episiotomy before she even looked at me. Her Energy caused such a disrupt with the other nurses it was disgusting how rude she was to the staff, my family and ME! AGAIN, remember I have been sitting with my son completely crowned ( I had the mirror to help me deliver). She yelled at the staff for not having the episiotomy tools ready ( the staff knew I did not want one) and my mother, my aunt and myself all said that I did not want one. She claimed that she was the doctor and would not deliver the baby without one. She turned on all of the medical lights(completely blinding me) and set my chair at such an uncomfortable position without a care for me AT ALL! Yes, my son was admitted to Nicu for an extended stay because of meconium aspiration. Later that day, Dr.Nishida came into my room(while i was alone) and told me it was my fault for my son being in the NICU! WTF!?! He handed me my prescriptions and left. Dr.Nishida was upset that I wanted to have a non medicated delivery, he made his feeling about it very clear during my last visits. I honestly feel (even 5 years later) that these two doctors are such evil people. I had my Daughter at CMH with Dr. Green (2 years after this) and let me tell you, It was SUCH an AMAZING experience compared to this emotional scar. I ended up filing a complaint to the board at CMH and they got back to me letting me know that It was pushed through for disciplinary action but that they were not aloud to disclose anymore than just that. Maybe that is why she no longer practicing out of CMH!?! Oh, and one more thing, one of the assisting nurses from my delivery even came up to my mother in the halls and apologized for such an awful experience with Dr. Ghiai. I know, that her coming up to my mom is probably a huge NO NO but please, let this tell you that there is something terribly wrong with this women.
