Clear choice for me

I applaud Dr. Pamela Kridgen and her colleagues in their support of Dr. Dennis Gabos (“Dr. Gabos Has Bravely Spoken for Patients and Colleagues,” May 8 letters). These doctors delivered my baby in 2011 when they were still a part of UPMC and I applauded their decision to leave the health care giant.

I am proud to have doctors who feel so strongly about patient-centered care. Of course, I was saddened when their decision to leave led to their forced, immediate removal from UPMC, which left many women, in the midst of their pregnancies, without their doctors. I can’t imagine being in a situation like that, and it made my choice clear.

I will most definitely be having my next baby with the doctors of Seasons OB/​GYN, now as a part of the Allegheny Health Network. I will be sticking with these physicians and others like them over a health system that self-proclaims “patients first.”
