    Default Good fertility specialists in Brisbane area PLEASE????

    Hi everyone
    I know I have posted something similar but I got no replies so am trying again!!
    Can anyone please recommend a fs in or near Brisbane who is caring, explains everything and has a good success rate??? PLEASE!
    I am currently going through City Fertility and would be happy to stay with them with right specialist but am open to other clinics too. However, since I am single and would be using donor sperm I am aware this limits my options a bit. I also want a non prejudice specialist too as I have heard of some that aren't as keen as helping people in my situation (with no man!).
    Would appreciate any feedback please.
    Sorry to repost this but there must be some good recommendations out there!
    Thanks everyone

    Hi Stormgirl73,
    I have just had my first appointment with Dr David Molloy at QFG on Monday. I had heard he is good at what he does but has no bedside manner. I actually found him easy to speak to and he gets straight into it. I can't tell you about his success or failure with me yet as I haven't started treatment. I'm doing a FET in early August. I don't think he would be judgemental. good luck in your search.

    Yes I have heard good reports about him. I was also thinking of Dr Salisbury at QFG too.
    Through City Fertility I was considering Dr Ashish Das or Dr Julie Lindstrom. I am just hoping more people tell me of their experiences and recommendations as I am flying blind here! The FS I have seen is lovely but something tells me to get a second opinion.
    Thanks heaps for your reply x

    I saw David Molloy before I had my DS and was not a fan of his bedside manner, he was far too clinical for me. I'm 14wks pg now thanks to Dr Julie Lindstrom.

    I love, love, love Julie! I got a BFP on my first IVF cycle after a few IUI's. Julie performed 2 surgeries on me and both times I fell asleep with her talking to me and looking into her kind blue eyes. I always felt/knew she had my best interests at heart.

    I also witnessed her being genuinely upset when her patients miscarried or were having a difficult time.

    I did see Dr Das once in Julie's absence for an IUI, he was nowhere near as gentle as Julie was.

    I actually miss going to see Julie now that I'm being seen by my OB. One of the nurses also told me Julie has the highest success rates...

    Thanks Smyles
    I think I may give Dr Julie Lindstrom although I heard she has a long waiting list (I hope not). Will ring later today when I get a chance. I have to try IUI first so I hope she has had success with that too! She isn't judgemental is she as I am single and would be using donor sperm?!
    I have just heard some good things about QFG so was getting confused.
    Thanls again

    I highly recommend Dr. Bob Watson at QFG. He is extremely caring, non-judgemental and sensible. He explains everything and doesn't mind "silly" questions. He has good success rates (from personal experience he has a two out of two success rate with me!) and doesn't mess about. He just goes straight to the protocol he thinks will work best for you. He is an OBs too which is lovely as it means you can see him from conception to delivery.

    Good luck!

    I can strongly recommend Dr Glenn Sterling and his team at Life Fertility.
    Glenn has amazing success rates and is an excellent doctor, caring, funny and highly intelligent. He really knows what he is doing and leaves no page unturned. He will tailor everything to suit YOU and your condition/lifestyle. From my first visit consultation with him I knew that he actually cared and that his only goal was to get me pregnant!

    Hi Guys, Can very highly recommend David Molloy, 17 IVF cycles (all fresh due
    Hi Guys, We can very highly recommend David Molloy at QFG. 17 IVF cycles, all fresh due to issues on freezing embryos, 4 pregnancies, 3 happy health boys. David is a total profession, who tells you what you need to know, not what you want to hear. If the cycle was no good, he told you straight that the chances where less ideal. David did everything he could for over our 6 years and we trusted him completely, and our trust was repaid. It is true if you are looking for someone to cry with he is not your man, if you are looking for a man who knows the latest development and will do everything he can to get you pregnant then David is your man. When we had to interrupt our second pregnancy at 20 Weeks, David was there to help and continued to support us for the 20 month and seven IVF attempts as we strived for our 2nd. (A hubby of an IVF veterans and in my opinion a IVF legend)

    I have called around, Dr Lindstrom is more expensive than the others. Her initial consultation fee is $100 more than everyone else so I was disappointed about that. Receptionist wasn't that friendly either??
    Dr Sterling's prices seemed better but the reptionist I spoke with was so 'blahzay' it out me off! The nurse was friendlier. I just haven't heard much about Life Fertility.
    I am going to ring Dr Salisbury (anyone know anything about him??) and also Dr Malloy for prices.
    Thanks again, keep the recommendations coming!
