Ophthalmology

In brief: Check standards

There are general percentages for c-section with some variability in different parts of the country.
An OB with a significantly higher rate (make sure this is a true figure and not some competitive information) might be doing it out of habit, fear of malpractice, convenience, or money. If you are certain of the data, you mighjt consider another ob.
