    I guess I'm still concerned as its such a busy practice I'm after someone that will actually sit down and take the time with us. Seems most FS are pretty rushed these days. I'm really still in two minds with Dr Mooring. We are looking at another doctor so still to make a decision in the New Year.

    @Kerpontryingin13 I'm not trying to talk you into Wazza, but he is so far superior IMO to others. I've got complicated non-fertility health issues and have seen a lot of doctors - he is exceptional as an FS, a doctor and a human being. He will give you all the time you need.

    I'll PM you to explain why I think this.

    I agree definately wait for Warren. I often regret that I chose to go to another very well known clinic because Warrens wait was long and I ended up going to warren anyway ( with another 2 failed stim cycles to show for it) in the end it was just a year later that what I would have if I had just waited for him in the first place. I can honestly say that if you have had 10 failed cycles before do not waste any more time or money elsewhere. I have nothing but the utmost respect for warren as do a lot of people and he hasn't even gotten me a sticky BFP yet.

    Default first appointment tomorrow!

    Hi again everyone --

    So in November we were given an appointment date of late April, but today the receptionist called and a cancellation spot has opened up tomorrow morning. It's only been 4 weeks since I first called to make the appointment - I'm pretty happy about that!

    We've read the info and completed all our paperwork... does anyone have any other tips about preparation / questions he might ask? He has all my records from my previous two cycles at another clinic.

    Default Another success with Wazza!

    It has been a while since I have posted, but I would like to let everyone know Warren is truly the most amazing man, he really knows what he is doing. I had heard so many first time IVF success stories with him and I was so worried I wouldn't be one of them, I just felt like for so long nothing would work and I felt like it was never going to happen, but now I can finally say I am pregnant, 8 weeks now, all thanks to Warren & the wonderful team! They have been so great and supportive every step of the way, it was definitely worth the wait to see him!

    @princessrory I'm really intrigued by this comment. From what I've read, gender has not been an issue is Keepontryin13's decision making. You've introduced it in your post.

    My understanding is that KeeponTryin13 is concerned about Charlotte being spread too thin between her work as a Ob/Gyn/FS and her preference for Warren's arguably greater experience. I've had a Ob/Gyn/FS who didn't prioritise IVF and offered an off-the-shelf one-size-fits-all-approach and this cost us dearly time wise, financially, and in overall burden of IVF. It may well have cost us the chance to have a child. I'd argue it's a very valid concern and one that any patient should clarify before embarking on IVF with a new FS. I suspect it wouldn't be an issue with Charlotte, but if I was considering her over Warren I'd want to know too.

    I'd also suggest your other point that females need to work twice as hard to get their qualifications is irrelevant if this isn't reflected in their skills. I had an anaethatist for one EPU who totally disregarded her colleagues' well documented reports on my atypical response to anesthetics. I ended up with excruciating issues for a fortnight, was off work and needed additional specialist input all because she was too arrogant and narcissistic to consider her colleagues' opinion, let alone listen to me! Whether this was age or gender I don't know, but as somewhat of a feminist I was really embarrassed as I suspect she disregarded her colleagues input as they were male and she wanted to prove a point. I was harmed by her. I would refuse to have her again and if I hadn't been so ill (thanks to her) and drained by IVF I'd have seriously considered putting in a complaint to AHPRA, not something I'd do lightly.

    I'm not trying to be argumentative, but would love to know why you've brought Charlotte's gender up as an issue? I couldn't help but ask.

    Congrats on getting your appointment so soon @Rubywoohoo. His questions will be thorough and both you and DP will be examined. He'll just want to understand your fertility and relevant medical history - he will seriously consider both female/male issues. I'd just make a list of your questions and key medical points/operations and your recent cycle stats etc. He'll give you a lot of verbal and written information and options. Most people seem to find it pretty full-on. (He'll probably send you home for a drink!) Remember his nurses will also be available to interpret and guide you through his plan and they'll give you typed day-by-day instructions. If you haven't dealt with QFG before, or even if you have, he'll probably take you into them and introduce you to them and he'll want more BTs. He's high energy our Wazza! We spoke to him, he took us to QFG and then we went back to see his nurse - I'd end with the receptionist and just make sure you've got what you need for the day. I'd double check you've got any handwritten scripts, BT forms and make sure you tell his girls if you are having ICSI/PICSI/PGD/intralipids/laps/flush and scratches etc - even they cannot always read his writing. If there are any queries that come up, they are great at checking that with him on the spot. I imagine your first cycle will be in the new year, so you should get to see him again at the start of your cycle before you start your stimming, so you can always ask him more questions then too - unless you are starting with Charlotte before he gets back from leave? She is great too. If you are on a budget you might want to shop around for any non-PBS scripts, although the pharmacy downstairs is convenient. If you have private health you might also want to get pharmacy receipts for any compounded scripts, as some funds will give you a little bit back. If he suggests Inofolic (if you have PCOS) get it from downstairs (it's hard to find) and check the dose of Megafol with Wazza's team or get it downstairs too as they know what dosage Wazza's girls get. We got 5mg from them, whereas our local chemist tried to sell us 0.5 - so quite a difference! If you are picking up your stim drugs, of course you know they need to be refrigerated ASAP. Good luck - you are in great hands!

    Warren is so amazing and so is Charlotte. They will talk all the time you need. At the end of an appointment Warren even asks 'now is there anything else you can think of that you want to ask me?' and he genuinely means it.

    Thanks for your response @princessrory. @Gagingi I did make the comment in an earlier post about Charlottes gender - see below - and thanks for your advice/response.

    We haven't tried a female FS yet so you never know!!!

    This comment was in regards to luck! It was not a dig at someones gender. I'm not sure if you have done as many cycles as we have or tried as many doctors as we have but I think my concerns as pretty valid.

    @keepontrying13 thanks for clearing that up.
