Syracuse >Loftus Houck & Ryu Pc
At age 19 I had to undergo surgery to remove a cyst on my ovary. I had been told for months that the cyst was on my right ovary. Dr. Ryu was very personable and I got along with him great. After my surgery, I found out that the cyst was the size of a nerf football and actually on my left ovary. He was having a hard time finding the blood supply around my right ovary and nearly cut my ovary out to remove the cyst but then remembered that I had told him my pain was on my left side. Apparently the cyst had been on the left side the whole time but was too large to see the blood supply with an ultrasound. He had to remove my left ovary due to the fact that the cyst had cut off its blood supply, but had he not listened to me and been thoughtful throughout surgery, I could have been left without any ovaries at only 19.
When I returned for my followup appointment a couple of smaller cysts were found on my right ovary and Dr. Ryu was kind enough to offer me as many options as possible. While he was confident that I would not lose this ovary as well, he gave me contact information for a fertility specialist and supported me throughout the process. He frequently called me to check up on my progress and was just a fantastic doctor all around. I am now 24 and pregnant with my first baby and I give a lot of that credit to Dr. Ryu, although unfortunately I no longer live in the area and cannot use his services.
On the other hand, I have a friend whom was seeing Dr. Houck and she felt as though Dr. Houck was judgemental and not understanding of her needs. I have heard great things about Dr. Loftus.
Loftus is great! Houck is awful. I went here from a teen till my first pregnancy. I saw Dr loftus, and loved him. Unfortunantly twords the end of my pregnancy Dr loftus was booked so I saw Dr houck. She was so rude, and I heard her talking about patients to the other women in the office. I requested not to be seen by her again. Unfortunantly she was on call when I was in labor. It was the worst experience Ive ever had. I filed a complaint, and I know the woman she delivered before me complained too.
the best ob/gyn doctors i have ever seen:). i had my daughter 15 months ago.i was a new patient with dr.loftus/houck/ryu.they are the nicest doctors i have ever meet!they are wonderful from beginning to end!i highly reccomend them to anyone.i had a scheduled c-section(repeat)and after having a very scary experience with my first child-a different doc in oswego,i was terrified to get it the 2nd time but i trusted dr.loftus.he supported me all the way through the process and it was a great experience!crouse hospital is not my favorite of hospitals(the nurses can be very crabby) but they do take good care of you!i plan on having another baby this year thanks to the comfort i got from dr.loftus..they are so great:) thank you to all of you-especially to dr.loftus for making my experience through pregnancy and delivery a happy one!
