Id agree, find a doctor that you like. I personally moved a half an hour away from my home town when I got married and even though there is a hospital with potentially some great doctors here, I have stuck with my doctor, a half hour drive from us. She knows me, my body, my family, and I love her. It really does matter who you go to. I will end up switching doctors, but not until we are done having kids.

If you don't feel like you are getting the best care for you and your baby you should switch.
