I had an ovarian cyst that sent me to the emergency room where Dr. Freitas was on call. I am super high anxiety with medical procedures and she has a very calming demeanor. She explains everything thoroughly without being condescending. She did the surgery 2 weeks later and went out of her way to fit me in. She also did a very nice job on the incisions and they seem to me to be as small as possible (a big concern of mine). She’s so amazing I immediately switched my teenage daughter’s care over to her.
Dr Huldeen was my primary OB and delivered 3 of my children. I’ve been very happy with her throughout.
I have had the opportunity to be cared for by Dr.’s Baudoin, Huldeen, and Ou-Yang prior to, during, and post delivery and then prior to, during, and post surgery. I trust these doctors and highly recommend any of them. They treated me with dignity and respect, and I know beyond a shadow of a doubt they care. I was healthy my whole pregnancy, and my baby was growing exactly how she should have. I even considered a home birth. But I am so glad I met an EMT who said to wait until after my first to decide. Lo and behold, my delivery had complications because my body didn’t do what it was supposed to, and without this team, I’m not sure if my baby or I would be here. I know there are a lot of options out there because I moved in the middle of my pregnancy, but these three know what they’re doing and can be the difference between a safe and healthy delivery even with complications and the alternative. If you’re thinking about delivering at Ridgeview, please do yourself a favor and decide - this is where you need to be. The nurses are wonderful and make you feel welcomed and cared for like you were their sister, daughter, or mother. I didn’t know what I was doing, but it didn’t matter, everyone taught me and my husband exactly what to do and expect. In addition to that, the delivery and recovery rooms are incredible. I was able to continue changing positions from the ball, to the bed, to the walls, to the spa-like bath tub and back again. I could have a lot of light or a little, and there was endless ice water brought by the amazing nurses in this fab water cup I still use. I delivered really late at night, but I had all the nurses and doctors I needed, so even though it’s a bit out of the major city, it’s a hidden gem.
Dr. Freitas listens and cares in such a gentle and genuine way. She takes time. Steph, the nurse, is also a pretty amazing human being herself. I have had abuse in my past, and they are sensitive to that. It means everything to be able to trust like that. Highly recommend.
Shawn Johnson Midwife is a beautiful soul who goes out of her way to make her clients feel welcomed and loved.. She is compassionate about her work and made me feel comfortable to ask anything or say whatever was on my mind as I was seeking guidance. She is the most trustworthy health provider I have ever met and would have her over and over again as my Midwife!! I absolutely adore her and wish her the best success and joy I love because she made me feel safe and comfortable and at ease every step of my pregnancy and delivery!
I delivered my baby girl 6 months ago with the midwives at Western Obgyn, and I had such a wonderful experience!! I had a birth plan and talked with my midwife through the course of my pregnancy, so she was a great voice during delivery! I tried different things and was able to change my mind until I was comfortable. I got to wear my own gown, have aromatherapy, and low lights...all made for a GREAT and comfortable experience! I would highly recommend, and we are so excited to deliver baby #2 with them!
If you are looking for an entire team who will take care of your pregnancy/women's health needs, it's definitely Western OB GYN (I've been to both Chaska and Waconia clinics). When I say team, I mean everyone, this includes the operators and triage nurses you talk to over the phone, the receptionists, clinic nurses, ultrasound and lab technicians, especially the doctors. I used to be seen by a different provider from a different clinic (which I won't mention and won't give a review), and I absolutely felt the huge difference when it comes to service delivery. I felt safe and well taken cared of at Western OB GYN, especially with Dr. Ou-Yang. She is truly remarkable, Western is fortunate to have as part of the team. I am fortunate that I am under her care.
My primary OB/GYN provider is Rebecca Baudoin, MD. I started seeing her after my physician retired. After asking for recommendations, I chose to start seeing Dr. Baudoin at Western OB/GYN, A Division of Ridgeview Clinics. She is absolutely wonderful. I never thought I’d like a provider that much again but I truly do. She makes me feel very assured, comfortable and she is very trustworthy. She also has incredible surgical skills. Dr. Baudoin makes me feel like she cares about me as a person and not just a number on chart
I have never felt more comfortable with a care team as I have with the entire team at Western OB/Gyn. I have seen multiple doctors within the practice due to a couple of challenging and high-risk pregnancies that required multiple visits. No matter who I had to see, they were all communicating with each other constantly and aware of my situation. I was the type of person who always wanted a female physician, but after meeting Dr. Mohling - that all changed. He is incredible. He takes time to answer all of my questions and makes me feel at ease. The front desk staff, nursing and ultrasound teams are top notch. I have seen and also recommend Dr. Baudoin, Dr. Valley and Dr. Michaulk.
My family is moving out of the area after four years of being cared for at Ridgeview and saying good-bye to our caregivers is like saying good-bye to best friends. They have taken such good care of us all, especially Shawn Johnson, CNM, Western OB/GYN, A Division of Ridgeview Clinics. She went above and beyond in caring for me from childbirth through post-partum anxiety. I couldn't have gotten through this, or childbirth, without her.
