    hahaha yes I remember the song when we did the ET!! well not fully, because I too was high on vallium. I think he gave me two! I could barely walk straight. Oh yes, and the egg numbers written all over my body. I also remember him being there when I woke up, which I thought was really nice cos the nurse could have been there, but it was him.

    My biggest fear is that he retires before we try for #2. I hope he plans on staying around for a bit longer. But one thing that makes me feel slightly better is that his son David is training with him. I wonder if he plans on becoming a FS too? I hope so. If he does, he certainly learnt from the best.

    At my first appt my mum came with me as DH was at work, and DH had already had all the tests under the sun done, so it was no biggie. When I walked out into the waiting room Wazza said to my mum who is well past menopause "would you like an embryo, I have plenty out the back on ice" she said "No thank you Warren, I've had a hysterectomy" Dr W reply, "that's ok, we'll stick it in your arm!" I also witnessed once a full patient waiting room, and a male partner to one of his patients was coughing profusely. Wazza slid open his door and yelled to the patients partner who was barfing up a lung "P155 OFF and get out, I've had that and I don't want it back" everyone was in hysterics. Even when DD was born, so many of the midwives at our hospital on the Gold Coast new him and had stories about him, even our obs did! The man is a legend, and so caring and passionate. I knew if Wazza wasn't able to crack it for us with IVF no other specialist would of, I trust that man with my life.

    surfergal, he was always offering my mother embryos too!! She thought highly of him too, I think it was an eye opener to her when she came to my first appt with him. She said if she had to go through all this then she wouldn't have had kids. He was so caring and agreed that it was really tough.

    He should give himself some valium at times, or Lithium

    Default Warren is the best of a long bunch of specialists

    Hi,

    I just wanted to say, we too found Warren very good and to the point. After trying for Two years with two fertility specialist and numerous IUI's, accupuncture, Sharkeys herbal therapy etc, we were eventually given a list of IVF specialist as I had an endoscopy and hystoroscopy and dr's found nothing wrong with me or hubby. Luckily for us, Warren was top of the list and the first one hubby called and also lucky for us, they just had a cancellation as there was a four month waiting list.

    Warren suggested a number of tests too for both of us again and in the end said there was a new test for AMH that costs $60, we thought well we have spent hundreds so far, whats $60 for an answer. So in the meantime we continued with IVF process, ie: injecting and then seeing how many eggs were available, unfortunatly only six and the quality was not good we later found out as I am 35.

    So Warren suggested a cheaper alternative to IVF was to do one IUI with the six eggs we had. It cost $600 instead of $7500 so we went with it even though we already did IUI and did not feel hopefull, however we stayed positive. Low and behold my period did not come on time and I booked in with the fertility clinic to do a pregnancy test to see if it had worked.

    We had an appointment with Warren the next week and he had both my pregnancy result and the AMH results back and Warren said he could not believe I was pregnant as my AMH is .5 which is bad news and Warren said to buy a lotto ticket as we were extremely lucky.

    We were very happy but fearfull for the rest of the pregnancy, but it all worked out well thanks to Warren. As the people above have said, Warren really does care about his patients, makes the men feel at ease and looks to really see what the problem is, instead of just saying "you should be getting pregnant" as was said to us numerous times. He gives you a giggle and makes you feel very at ease at a time that is both scary and unknown. So much so that we are going to see him again in June 2011 for hopefully another miracle baby for our little family and if we are not succesfull we are thankful to Warren and the girls at the clinic for all their patience and understanding.

    Warren is the only specialist I would use and recommend to my friends and family. We are very blessed everyday and when I look at our little boy, I think "Thank god for Warren De Ambrosis".


    November 2014 - Update

    Hi everyone, just wanted to update this post and glad to see Wazza is still working his magic, thank goodness. We also had twins in 2012!!! Yes Twins, I did not put this update on to brag only to say ladies and hubbies please don't give up. As above mentioned my AHM was .5 (extremely bad or eggs to develop into fetus and live on) and Warren helped us. He told us honestly at the beginning we probably would not have any children and we have Three now and whilst I understand every case is different, take this on board to keep faith and hope always. I wish every one of you the very best and know how hard the journey is, the tears, the heartbreak every month, strain on relationships etc, but hang in there. xxxo

I see warren when Im in recovery and how he cares for his patients its so good to see, I have had 2 different FS the 1st one was great saw him in recovery for a second the new fs I cant remember seeing him in recovery and I wonder if I should go back to warren.

    Default We heart Warren

    Hi all

    Great idea for a thread. Wazza is truely one of a kind and makes this whole process seem much more bearable!

    We live in central QLD but fly to Brisbane to see Warren - and it's been worth every cent so far! We have tried IVF with a doctor in our local area (well 3 hours away - but the closest to us!) but after feeling like we weren't being heard (or getting pregnant!) I researched potential FS's for us to be referred to - and picked Warren based on what info I could find. After our first appointment with him, we KNOW we made the right choice to see him - and although we are yet to get our BFP - I am certain that we'll get over the line with him in our corner. I can't stop raving about him to anyone that will listen!

    I too love all his craziness (yet to have an ET with him - but hear that is going to be fun...). We love how he tells us to have "have rooties" Makes a topic that can feel uncomfortable with other FS's, feel normal! And he is great at making DH feel heard and comfortable. We always walk out laughing

    Here's hoping there'll be lots more Wazza BFP's in the not too distant future
