quick overview before i tell u my dilemma. I have PCOS, ttc 13 months,4 rounds of Clomid, 1 ovulation waiting to see what happens with 4th round.
So i've been seeing DR kelsey in toowoomba. he is really nice but doesnt seem to be doing many tests. hasnt even done sperm test for hubby yet. anyway so he is suggesting if this last round of clomid doesnt work to try ovarian drilling or go to IVF guys.. i was all keen for ovarian drilling until last night i went to fertility seminar for QFG. Dr elser spoke to us and said he wouldnt use clomid he'd use femara, he definatly wouldnt recommend ovarian drilling and he was like if u come in we will run all sorts of tests and see where to go from there. they sounded so nice and helpful( i suppose it was sort of a sales pitch for them to get patients) but i no from experience that i didnt really like dr esler 5 years ago when he did my laparoscopy and have heard other ppl that dont like him.
so now im really confused in what to do. i could go see dr esler (which he will cost so much more) and have to wait 5 weeks to get results for tests. or just stick with dr kelsey..
sorry about the long post guys but would REALLY appreciate ur help and if any of u have seen these docs.
BABY DUST TO ALL

I've only ever seen Dr Elser but didn't have to go to the extent that you have I'm sorry . We found him and his staff to be wonderful. While quietly spoken he has a wicked dry sense of humour and when I asked specific questions he would go into details, other wise I think he tends to leave things 'simple' so as not to worry unnecessarily.
We had to travel many hours to see him but hopefully it'll all be worth it when our bub arrives in November.
Best of luck and I hope your journey ends happily very soon.

Not personal exp, but SIL has trouble ttc and holding onto her babies. She has seen him and staff with both pg and has nothing but good things to say.

I saw Dr Esler years ago with my husband and we regret it. He was rude, so was his staff and gave us wrong test results. He made alot of money out of us and believed him when he told us we had to do IVF to get pregnant but that isn't the case when I fell pregnant 3 months after IVF and it was natural. Other IVF doctors have told me they cant understand why he did what he did. I have nothing good to say about Esler and his staff and I know MANY other ladies that have the same opinion as me. Travel to sunshine coast, there is a wonderful doctor there that will take care of you and his staff are wonderful as well.

Im in Toowoomba and have been seeing dr.esler since 2009....didnt know there was another fertility specialist here???? If I had known i probably would not go through dr.esler. I had a tubal reversal last year after going through 3 cycles of IVF which has left us broke. Where would I find dr.kelsey??
Dr.elser doesnt seem to have much of a bedside manner..and i feel he looks down at me every time we go in for appointments. Since we chose the reversal over more attempts at IVF I feel they dont want to deal with us

Honestly, I would go with qfg. I am with them in brisbane. That is ridiculous that they haven't even done a simple sperm test! I have one polycystic ovary but my dh has severe mfi. So what happens if you are in that boat? Then your fs could be going down the totally wrong track. My pco has little affect on our situation but dh's mfi is the reason we needed ivf.
You don't need a fs that is just going to sit there trying basic things after you have been through a fair bit already. Go with anyone - qfg or not - that is willing to be comprehensive and proactive.
