    Default Is Dr. Gareth Weston good??

    Hello all, I am 33 and I have been ttc for 2 years and got 1 biochemical miscarriage and 1 missed miscarriage. Now I am seeing Dr. Gareth Weston as my FS in Monash hospital and have seen him as private patient after that. Is Dr. Gareth Weston good as a surgeon and IUI/IVF specialist? He has advised me to do lap and hysteroscopy before IUI or IVF. Anyone has any experience with him on lap/hysteroscopy, IUI and IVF?

    He has asked me to do lap on Day 22. But I read some article that the best time to do is after the period...I asked him about this and he said it's fine...I still ttc this month so I may not know whether I am pregnant or not on D22...

    Thanks a lot for your help !!! I am very lost now. Headache..really appreciate if anyone can share some inputs for me.

    I have a friend who works for Monash as she was on the very small list of doctors she would see herself if she needed IVF treatment.

    I was referred to Dr Weston for Ivf. I went a natural round then an expensive donor egg purchases via the world egg bank. There was little discussion or advice on choosing a egg donor. I now know that selecting a donor in their late twenties who have already had a child is a better choice. My six months of Dr Weston so called support made me feel like a number. His staff are rude and this attitudude could only come from the man in charge. Looking back I realize he was indifferent. I'm pregnant now at 50 after months of research and dr shopping. Sourcing fresh donor eggs directly made sense. Eggs are donated and on the same day Mum husbands sperm was injected. Such better odds than bringing over frozen eggs and then thawing. So many hurdles and going fresh eliminated a few. Dr Weston didn't bother discussing the odds. I eventually found a great specialist and immediately felt that his views and recommendations were much more considered and based on facts. Don't put yourself blindly in the hands of any specialist. Do your research and shop around.
