Dr. Richter may be fine if you have a textbook pregnancy and delivery, but if anything goes wrong, she'll completely neglect you. My 2nd pregnancy was difficult. At Week 24 I began having unproductive preterm labor. Despite the diagnosis, every time I called All About Women with contractions or bleeding, the nurse acted like it was all in my head and actually sounded annoyed. L&D couldn't stop my contractions, so I was prescribed medication and partial bedrest for the remaining 16 weeks of my pregnancy. When I finally delivered, my body was so exhausted, I completely tore my glute while pushing. I was in the hospital for 6 days, in agony, unable to walk. After sending me home, I was in so much pain I was throwing up and couldn't hold my baby, but Richter refused to prescribe me pain medicine or refer me to an injury specialist. She also canceled my follow up appointments with her, and her nurse hung up on me when I called. I called my insurance and was eventually treated by a pain management doctor and physical therapist, who both seemed dismayed, and said my injury was mismanaged by Richter. I couldn't pick up my baby for 4 weeks or walk without crutches for 9 weeks. I sent a formal complaint to the Texas Medical Board, and later received a terse letter from Richter saying she will no longer be my doctor.
