Totally make "old school" decisions. Haha. My first OBGYN she barely got done with her residency and started practicing when I saw her for my daughter. AMAZING doctor. She was smart, educated, listened etc. She switched groups or I would see her for this one. My new OB has been practicing for 5 years so still somewhat newer and he's already chief of OB at our hospital... So don't think just cause they're younger and have less experience years they aren't as good of a doctor. Just my 2 cents.

I hope you find someone that makes you happy.
I actually never thought about it this way. This is a great point!! I keep telling myself that I am in a wonderful hospital this time, there are sooo many specialists there that if something went wrong there will be someone there that can help.

I'm going to try to look at it this way now. The Dr. that stuck out to me the most was the one that consistently made the "Best Dr.'s in America" list, the one that's 36 lol Thanks Kayla! LOL
