    You'll need a GP referral and then call to make an appointment. Let me warn you now that his waiting list is long. My wait was initially 7 months but ask to be put on the cancellation list and say you're available at short notice and are willing to have a very early morning appointment, I'm talking 5.30am if needed.
    Can't quite remember initial fees, something like $270

    Also, just want to add, I had my first transfer with Wazza today. He was hilarious, made loads of jokes and as a result I felt really relaxed and comfortable. I really hope we get our BFP. Just one question to anyone out there, my temperature was apparently a little high at 37.6. Slightly worried it will affect the embryos... Anyone got any info on if I should be concerned? The nurse said it was ok but I'm still a little worried!

    Yep, Play school and also some good luck fertility poem that were all recited. It was a really positive experience!

    Good luck with your transfer in a couple of weeks time!

    Yes melimum you have to get a GP referral but just ring for appointment first as it's a few months to your first appointment.

    We didn't have the poem it was hard enough to sing Play School when I was high as a kite on Valium. We had to stop by to kow tow to the incubators in the lab on the way out.

    I didn't zone out too much on the Valium. I had a mini snooze before my transfer though in one of those comfy arm chairs. When we left my DH said I was walking mega slowly but it felt like normal speed to me

    I just wanted to say hello to everyone!
    I've never written on here, but have got many a piece of advice from all the lovely ladies.
    Just wanted to share my Dr Wazza story, because it is a nice one

    If you believe it, Dr Wazza actually delivered ME! As in, he was Mum's OB. So I grew up hearing all about this lovely and hilarious doctor from my Mum.
    Fast forward to my early twenties, and my then-fiance (now husband) was diagnosed with a germ cell tumour at 22, which meant a year of crazy levels of chemo and several huge operations. So we faced some pretty intense home truths early on about how we could possibly start a family.
    After initially getting appointments with Monash, we decided to change to QFG and I was so excited to see Dr Wazza's name on their specialists lists.
    He was amazing, very open and honest but at the same time he really sympathised. No problem was too big or small - considering I would sometimes go see him at 5.30am! Of course, the road is tough, but he and his team were shining lights through it all. Totally put DH at ease too.

    The result? Twins on the first round. I will never forget his face when he told us at six weeks what was going on. It was awesome. My pregnancy was not easy, but he referred me to the best OB I could possibly have had at that stage - a very relaxed doctor (now retired, unfortunately) - Neil Shilton - who calmed me down for the next few months.

    Healthy boy/girl twins were born at 33+5, albeit a little small, but wonderful all the same.

    Now - they just celebrated their 4th birthday and are wonderful humans.

    We owe it all to Dr Wazza and Dr Shilton!! Best of luck to everyone

    Wonderful story! Congratulations!

    I have to say that yesterday my hubby and I got our BFP and that was all down to the amazing Wazza. We are amazed and delighted. Go Wazza!!
