We saw Wazza for the first time last Thursday. We were with him for at least 90 minutes! He took a really detailed history from both of us & asked so many questions as well as giving us HUGE amounts of info. He also did a physical exam on both of us which is a big deal in my eyes- our last FS at Monash didn't ever do a single physical exam on us.
The girls that work for him are lovely, & He had us laughing from the minute he introduced himself, he really does have a such a great personality. He was warm, caring & empathetic. For the first time we feel like someone actually gives a sh!t about us and that if there is ANY chance of us having a baby it will be with Wazza's help- if he can't help us I don't think anyone can.
i hope you all don't mind me visiting in here again. I know this is a Wazza thread but has anyone had CM as their Fs and if so - is she as good as Wazza? (The receptionist said she's really doing her own thing now and not consulting with Wazza about treatment plans etc)...I know I can get an appointment with her MUCH sooner !!! No time to waste here - the clock is ticking VERY loudly....any advice/thoughts greatly appreciated...(pm me if you like)... Thanks lovelies xx
I had Charlotte as my FS and couldn't ask for a more caring down to earth doctor. She does follow Warrens protocols and I know she consulted with him on my issues alot. I didnt want to wait for Wazza (only because my clock was ticking) and knew Charlotte was the next best thing. We travelled a 12 hour round trip every time we needed to see her. After 13 failed cycles I'm now 15 weeks pregnant after only 2 cycles (1 stim and 1 frozen). Would highly recommend her as she was my 4th FS so by this stage we definitely knew what we looking for!! A couple of weeks ago her waiting list was only 3 months...not sure now???
P.S. I was at the stage where I thought our only option was donor eggs but she said she didnt think we we needed to go down that path! I'm glad I listened to her!!!

Crap, maybe I should ask to go on her waiting list, although I don't think I can be on both Wazza and CM's cancellation list, is that right? It has to he one or the other, right?
@Keepontryin13 thanks for taking the time to write about your experience.
It gave me so much hope! Exactly the kind of things we need to read more often after multiple failed cycles...
I'm curious: what made the difference compared to all your previous cycles? Was is the protocol only? Or Did she find an issue that wasn't detected before?
12hrs trip!!! Wow.
Can I ask you how many times in total you had to go and for how long? I have no idea how long is the very first appt for ex, and I'll have to organise flights and accommodation very soon...
@ange1111 and @Grace1 - I have booked an appt with Charlotte on Dec (yes, around 3months wait at the moment) since I couldn't see Warren before July next year.
Charlotte is Warren's protégée. He trained her in the purpose of eventually replace him when he retires. Just the fact that he picked her gives her so much credit! At least imo.
@ange1111 you're lucky, you're seeing her next week! How exciting!
I can't wait to have your feedback!
But again, I read only good things about her before booking my appt with her
Really cannot wait to see her!
pingc383, not sure if Charlotte has a cancellation list but I know for a fact that u can book with Warren (and be on his cancellation list) as well as booking with Charlotte, since it's what I've done.
3 months wait with Charlotte will be probably sooner than your appt with Warren?
Up to you hun... To me, waiting till July was not an option although I still booked it just in case.
Hope that helps
