[color=Blue]I just tried to send you a private message but unfortunately you've got it disabled.

I don't really want to go into too much detail, but I've had 2 friends who've had Dr Szirt delivery their babies.  One who thinks very highly of him (although sometimes his laid back attitude can be a bit off putting), and the other one who'd never go back to him because of a complication that he didn't pick up until she insisted tests be done.  Having said that, I guess that any doctor can make mistakes or miss things, but it could have been quite serious if not picked up when it was.

I guess I'm probably not much help to you, but if you'd like to enable your personal messaging through the preferences, I'd be happy to go into more detail.

Hi Kismet1,
I have been seeing Dr Szirt for 15 years. He delievered my 13 & 10 year old and I was always happy with him.  Yes although we was a bit laid back, I found that he reassured me when I needed it.  I stopped seeing him a couple of years ago because I moved otherwise I would still be going and seeing him.  
Hope this helps.

Dear Kismet1,

I had Dr Alex Szirt for my last pregancy, my DD is now 6 months old.  I cannot recommend him highly enough to you.  My DD was my third child and though he has a laid back attitude which may not suit some people he was certainly wonderful with me.  I also found him to be above and beyond the call of duty when my daughter was born, with my previous two pregancies the obs/gyna was only in the room for 5 minutes.  Dr Szirt was with me for 2 1/2 hour of my labour and I was only in labour for 3 hours!!!  He was absoultely fantastic whilst I was in hospital also, coming to see me at least once a day sometimes twice, unheard of from previous obs/gyn.  I hope this help with your decision (the fact that he doesnt charge a $2500-$3000 gap helps too!).

Hope all goes well with your and your family.
