    Lightbulb Westmead fertility Centre feedback

    Hi guys
    we are about to start our consultation with Westmead Fertility and i was wondering if there were any recent users that can give us a more current feedback.
    We are meeting with Dr Howard Smith and i heard alot of good and back about the whole services but they were all back in 2009.

    Lots of baby dust all around

    cheers

    Hi there. I'm with wfc and find them great so far. Have had 2 cycles so far and keen to start a 3rd soon. My second cycle resulted in a positive but sadly miscarried at 8 weeks.
    You won't really see your fs much apart from initial consultation and follow up appts. All the procedures are dealt with by the dr on that day and the rest is handled by the nurses. Everyone is super nice and really supportive which is a big help.

    Good luck!

    Agree with everything Snoopa said. Only negatives I have found is they are a busy clinic- it can take a while to speak to a nurse when you call (1-2 days). It was my first cycle so i was pretty confused, unsure of how it all works so I found this a little stressful. I've since found out if you send an email on the online portal using the login they give you, it has priority and will be responded to a lot quicker. I'm seeing Dr Ashley Fong and she has been amazing so far. The nurses are really lovely too.

    I loved WFC and had my DD from a FET on my second cycle. Some people don't like seeing different staff but I found them all great so I didn't mind. I thought the service and care they offer was so good particularly as their fees are pretty low. Good luck

    I agree with others, the doctors, nurses, scientists and Admin team are all lovely and their fees are reasonable. Unfortunately I did 9 cycles with them and they were all failures and I saw 3 seperate FS's. If you have minor fertility issues I think they are great but if you have something a bit more complex I don't think they have the technology available, which is probably why they are low cost, or maybe the FS's I saw weren't very experienced? (I never saw Dr Smith). But I don't regret going there, so definitely give them a go and fingers crossed for you

    Yay - I have heard Dr Howard is the best FS there. Are you doing the long/short protocol?

    Thank you Hopefully I will be saying the same to you in a couple of months!
