    Default Recommendations for High Risk OB in Sydney

    I am currently 6 weeks pregnant with an IVF baby and also have my own medical conditions so am looking for recommendations for a high risk obstetrician in Sydney?

    I live in the South West of Sydney but have already spoken to Dr Rob Buist in Randwick who I liked. (So any any opinions on him would be appreciated too).

    Cost and area in Sydney are not an issue.

    I have Spina Bifida, Scoliosis, Ashermans and a Heart Arrhythmia.

    Any advice is great thanks.

    Dr Pesce who works out of Westmead and Westmead Private is really experienced with complex high risk patients and is lovely. Best of luck

    I see prof Greg Davis at kogarah. He specializes in high risk. I'm 34w with an ivf/donor egg baby with immune issues and he has been great. Willing to work with my immune specialist too.

    He is a straight shooter and I like his manner and so does my dh. I am giving birth at hurstville private but he also delivers at st George public and private.

    I read hes incredibly ridiculously hard to get into?

    I have been to the specialist services clinic he has his rooms out of and past specialists have made me fax off a referral first to the receptionist before allowing an appointment booking, is that how he works as well?

    Default Great OBGYN

    Hi there I may be a bit late in responding but My doc with my daughter was David Kowalski. He is located in Sydney CBD and is absolutely amazing. I had pre eclampsia and suffer from epilepsy and as a patient I can be quite difficult. David was amazing and still is I am seeing him now for my 2nd ( i had 2 previous miscarriages and he was fantastic) I could call him anytime.
