My doc is going to call me this week to ask what OB I want to see.

That's definitely a big decision and I can see why you're torn. Can you meet the doc who's closer before making the choice? I think it's important to have a good connection with your dr, especially when you're PAL. You may very well like the doc who's closer. I tried finding a dr closer to where I'm at now but the service I received from a different office was so much better so I now drive about 20-30 minutes. There are loads of docs closer, but the connection was more important to me.

Is there a way to set up an intro meeting with the closer doc? To see if you like them? I do like closer options myself. But then if you already know & like another doctor & would feel most cared for by them, 45 minutes isn't too bad :)
