    Yes. I go to a private gyno in Miami, one of the best in the city. I go to PP when I'm away at school, and the care/technology/wait time for tests is about the same.

    The wait time to get an appointment is sometimes longer at PP, it's a major city full of students, so I sometimes have to wait a week for regular checkups. But otherwise, much of the same.

    The office/waiting room isn't as fancy, that's really the only difference I've noticed. I mean, it's a larger center to be used by the public. So it's understandable that they don't have modern art in the lobby and a espresso machine :rofl1: but it's clean, modern, the technology and care is there, so who cares really? lol

    they are also a lot more used to students and are used to A LOT of different BC methods. I found PP more knowledgable about new BCs and side effects and everything else than my gyno. Who, as a private doctor, has the luxury of being pretty set in her "ways" and BC methods.

    It's also nice that it's a one stop shop. All testing, lab work etc.. is done in house. So no going anywhere else or referrals or calling other labs etc.. etc..

    I'm a big fan of planned parenthood and all they do. Personally.

    *that said, it does also depend on the private doctor and PP.
    Some private doctors..suck, majorly.
    some PP I'm sure are sucks as well.
    but then again, at least all PP have policies and rules and universal knowledge within their staff.

    Can I disagree here? I told someone once that I require testing and his response was "as do I." I thought that was pretty hot.

    Good advice. I may start pushing for a tubal again.

    This is a good point. A lot of women feel this way! And I completely get it.

    Siri thinks that condoms are a GREAT idea!

    As in, a couple days after we brought her home she grabbed a sheet of them off our night stand and came parading around the living room with them :cool:

    We all thought it was rather hilarious. And by we I mean Ryan, Megan and I, since Megan is here basically all the time :p

    This is all I really have to add.
