Looking for recommendations for Amnio with PPO

hi everyone - 

We had a rough experience with an Amnio for our first son where my uterus cramped after the needle was inserted and the amount of fluid extracted was very small but the minimum they could use. It took forever for us to receive our results for a genetic disorder that would be terminal. We are pregnant with #2 and are faced with this agonizing situation again. I recently switched to UnitedHealth PPO and had Kaiser previously. I’m hoping to find some recommendations on Perinatologist who have a great bedside manner and experience with Amnio’s. We had a conversation with a doctor at Diablo Valley Perinatal Group and I was not pleased with his bedside manner.  I would absolutely love to hear anyone who might be able to recommend someone who really made you feel comfortable and whom you trusted completely.
