Stephen Carter attended our newborn at the hospital. Her bilirubin level was at a 9 and she had lost 7% of her birth weight. I've spoken to 3 pediatricians, a physicians assistant and 2 dr offices. All of them have stated factually that BOTH of these are completely normal. There was nothing wrong with our daughter. However, Stephen Carter kept us in the hospital an additional day and nearly would not let us go home the 3rd because her bilirubin level was at 10. Also normal! I have since learned that as long as the bilirubin level is under 12 on the 1st day and under 15 on the 2nd day it is PERFECTLY NORMAL, nothing dangerous. Instead, not only did Stephen Carter cause us emotional distress by telling us there was a chance of brain damage, he put my daughter through TORTURE by requiring she be undressed under bilirubin lights all night through which I might add she screamed incessantly because it was cold in the room, would not get warmer & she did not like the mitt over her eyes. Then to top it off, Stephen Carter required we take another bilirubin test and we are being charged for the full amount of this because the insurance company says it was not required BECAUSE SHE WAS NOT IN DANGER and thus did not need the test. Stephen Carter should not be a pediatrician if he does not know his trade. We can’t afford the $400+ additional fees that Stephen Carter has caused us to have to pay because he is a QUACK. Oh yes, and the 7% birth weight loss he was freaked out about? The hospital paperwork states right on it that up to 10% loss is NORMAL. Stephen Carter should not practice medicine if he thinks NORMAL is dangerous and worth freaking parents out about and making them pay for unnecessary tests. In addition to this, I then get a bill for his practicing this quack medicine on my daughter. HIS LICENSE SHOULD BE REVOKED. Bilirubin tests are another form of torture, by the way! He is a child torturer!
