    Default Gold Coast Fertility Clinic Recommendations

    Hi there, I'm brand new to this site. My partner and I have just moved to Gold Coast and want to start a family however he had a vasectomy approx 12 years ago.
    I don't even know where to start with choosing the best method however I would really like to find a great Fertility Specialist who can recommend the best way for us.
    Can anyone share great or not great experiences or recommend someone preferably in the GC area however I'm happy to go to Brisbane also.
    Thanks so much in advance, I'm so nervous as we desperately want children!

    Dr Ong Monash IVF is great. People also really like Michael Flynn from CFG (I think). There's a GC fertility thread on here that I'll bump for you, most of us are in a FB group now though.

    I loved dr Ong at Monash! He was very much to the point always made sure we understood what he was talking about. He is very compassionate and you can tell that it's not just a job for him but that he actually does care.. Good luck!

    I also third Dr Ong at Monash. He is a lovely man and he has a genuine interest in you as his patient. We saw him after being with another IVF clinic and it was honestly the best change we made

    If you do decide to go Brisbane everyone signs the praises of Wazza
    - there is an appreciation thread for him in the IVF section.

    I can't remember his full name and I have never seen him personally but he was the next Dr on my list if things didn't work with Dr Ong but luckily for us we got pregnant working with Dr Ong so I didn't have to see Wazza

    For sure but it's a secret group so you won't find it... And I can't PM you yet as you haven't posted enough times. Post a few more times (even if just in this thread) and then send me a PM with your name on Facebook so I can friend you or I will PM you mine - not sure how many more posts you need to PM, I don't think it's many

    OK thank you. Just an update, we have a free 'chat' with a Monash nurse on Wednesday morning and also an appointment with a Vasectomy Reversal Clinic on Saturday morning. I figure it's best to weigh up all options first but fingers crossed we will be seeing Dr Ong in the near future!

    Good stuff! Must be nice to have a plan going.
    There are a couple of other girls in the FB group whose partners had had vasectomies too. (I still can't pm you yet!)
