I have been going through Westmead under Dr Smith. I havent had any bad experiences with him. He has always given us options/recommendations for investigations/tests and then does the same with the options for fertility treatments eg OI-IUI v's IVF v's ICSI. He always provides all the facts and is happy for you to ask questions or help with any queries. You may not like what he has to say - but he will tell you the way it is. For instance - I am not the smallest of girls - so he told me to loose weight (if I could) - fair enough I think. Wish it was that easy though. But he still supports my treatment. I have always found him to be very thorough. Once you start the treatment you dont see him anyway, the nurses take you through the IVF process, and they have been nothing but supportive and lovely through this. Hope this helps.

did dr smith make you lose the weight before starting ??
19-11-2011 19:53 #7
No sweetie, he didnt. He did however encourage me to try to loose a little as it would be beneficial to the treatment. But he certainly didnt postpone any treatment due to it.

I saw Dr Smith and he seemed to know what he was talking about.
I haven't seen him since, as I deal with the nurses who also seem to know what they're doing.
I had a great female doc for epu and et, she was very reassuring.
