There are some doctors that seem like thiefs. They do very little for the huge amount of money they charge. They speak down to you and make you feel worse than you did before seeing them.
Then there is Dr Warren De Ambrosis. I just wanted to start a thread where we can share our stories and appreciation of Wazza. Honestly, the most amazing, hard working doctor that I have ever met. What sort of doctor works 7 days a week? what sort of doctor starts appointments at 5am? He does.
We were lucky enough to concieve our DD after our 1st attempt of IVF (thanks to Wazza) and my fondest memory was being on the operating table ready for EPU. My veins have always been terrible so it was no surprise that the anthesist would struggle to find one on this occasion. He checked one arm, then the other, than back to the first arm. I was in tears, so so scared of having EPU. Then Wazza walks in ready to get started and could see that the anthesist was having trouble with my veins. He looked at me and said "what are you crying about? why cos this prick is being a prick to you?" of course I laughed and at that split second, my veins must have relaxed enough and I heard the anthesist say "Got it" and under I went...
And then there are all the words he uses, "nookies", "what can I do for you good lookin?" or refering to my DH's possibility of needing a TESA "don't worry I will drill him to find some swimmers!"
Would love to hear other stories/memories of the fantastic Wazza...

What city is Wazza in? Sounds like a dr to put on my "in case" list.

Seriously Chubear. Dont put him on your in case list. Put him on the only man to see list!! He certainly has his own way but in the last few weeks has gotten 3 lovely ladies on the Brissie thread pregnant. Im hoping to be the fourth (had 2 blasties transferred yesterday). Good luck whatever you choose and good luck to those with Wazza still hoping for some magic (like us).

We call Wazza the Waz Fertility God. He is such an incredible human being.I'm seeing him & flew from Melb to Brizzy. He had a waiting room full of people, but took the time to make sure we were all ok.
He is so compassionate & hard working. He does it because he cares. I love him!

He might be crazy at times (actually most of the time) but a good man. Never seen a doctor so passionate and dedicated to his work and I've seen lots of doctors at work in my life. Assisted reproduction is his life.

We have 3 Wazza stories for our family. I have low ovarian reserve and wasted nearly 2 years with a FS who did not know what he was doing. Then I went to Wazza and he was honest and said it didnt look good for me. After stimming on 900u of purogen I only had 1 egg. He was right..... My body couldnt do it on its own. In steps my 2 sisters into the appointment. There are 3 of us in there and he was just so exceptional in getting us all sorted and underway for the donor program. Sister 1 stimms for me and we get 10 eggs, due to DH sperm being frozen and age we only get 1 emby. I was crushed. We put the 1 emby in and I got a BFP. Again Wazza was very honest and said I was extreemly lucky.
My other sister who saw her ovarian reserve slip away also decided to jump in head first and Wazza got her a BFP also.
He will fit you in at any time. One cycle I didnt know if my AF was my AF or not. He told me to come on in for a scan. I was on the sunny coast and he said "Make sure you drive safe, there is no rush, I will see you when you get here".... I was touched. He actually cares about his paitents.
His girls in the office will do anything to help also. If Wazza ever retires it will be a huge loss to the fertility world and those of us that got a BFP, very lucky ladies indeed.

I am a wazza girl too. So many funny stories. Especially vallium stories. Did you guys sing the open wide song during your ET? Can't remember it fully as I was a bit high on Vallium.
I remember him stroking my arm at the beginning of EPU. And telling that I can't have any nookie that night... Very funny.
Our first initial meeting he told my hubby to 'get his pecker out'.
I loved how he wrote our egg results all over you as well. It's like he gets excited for you. I was in the recovery room getting ready to go home and he saw that a nurse had rubbed off his writing on one of his patience. He wrote it back on her when the nurse walked away and said 'that'll show her'... He even remembered the number of eggs that girl had too. The nurse did not leave any evidence. That surprised me that he actually commits our egg results to memory.
Such an amazing man. We were so close to going with another clinic which was only 2hrs away from us. But my gyno had worked with Warren years and years ago and practically begged me to go to Warren as he knew that we would mesh better with this one. How can you not mesh with him. He is fabulous. LOVE HIM and love this thread devoted to him. Great idea.

We saw him for our 7th cycle. One and only cycle with him got us a BFP. It hasn't been an easy ride but we should get there in the end!
