    Default Recommendations on doctor for D&C in Sydney

    Hi all,

    I have been diagnosed with a missed miscarriage. We found out at our first ultrasound at 9w2d :-(

    As I have no symptoms to suggest I'm going to miscarry naturally any time soon I'm pretty much decided on going ahead with a D&C.

    Can anyone provide a recommendation for a great doctor? I want someone who will use US if necessary and also who will prescribe a course of antibiotics immediately following the procedure. An idea if cost for private practitioners would be great too.

    Many thanks in advance.

    Tangwyn, so sorry for your loss. In Sydney can highly recommend Dr Rob Buist who is very mindful of the risks of blind D&C's and offers a private miscarriage service using US guidance.

    Thank you so much, Starfish. Dr Buist looks great. I see that he charges $500 for the procedure. Any ideas how much the anaesthetist would cost?

    Many thanks again xo

    Probably a similar amount for anaesthetist but you will get some back if you have private health insurance. I would recommend ringing Rebekah, Rob's receptionist, she is lovely and would be able to give you a better idea of costs and rebates. Good luck x

    No luck with Dr Buist. Apparently he doesn't have time...

    Were Dr Buist's rooms able to give you a name for someone else? Really important to see someone who won't try and talk you into having it done without guidance.

    You could also try Prof Thierry Vancaillie however he mainly does surgeries to correct damage/adhesions caused by blind D&C's and other uterine surgery http://www.whria.com.au/page.aspx?docid=90 However his office may also be able to give you some names if Citrus Rains contact isn't a goer for you.

    Hi there, yes they recommended the dr that locums for him. I rang and asked if she does US guided procedure and the receptionist said that the doctor doesn't take directions from patients; if she feels I need US direction then she will do it and if not, she won't. Ho hum. Trying not to react too much as those were the receptionist's words and I'm not sure what the dr herself is like in person.

    I'm going anyway because I can get in tomorrow and I figure if she is good enough to share on call and locum for Dr Buist then she must be ok. Fingers crossed.

    Hopefully, the attitude of the receptionist is no reflection on the Dr. It really ****s me that this process isn't easier for women wanting to take measures to protect their fertility after a miscarriage, as if it isn't hard enough

    Good luck Tangwyn, let us know how you go xx
