    I saw Dr. Patrick Chan and I think he is really great! I would see him again for my next pregnancy. He's polite, non-judgmental, takes his time and is patient. I also think he's pretty reasonable for his prices.

    Dr Lucy Lord contra Dr Mike Rogers
    - or why I changed doctors -

    Dr Lucy Lord

    I heard that Dr Lucy Lord was very professional, so I went to her first.
    In the 4th month, it turned out that I had to go into hospital. During that time, she seemed very genuinely concerned and helpful.
    Later on, in her office, it came out that she is always extremely busy and obviously tired; she never even said ”goodbye” when we left her office.
    My 3-year-old child has the good sense to know who she can trust and who is to be avoided - and she got very distressed in Dr Lord’s office. She said ”Can’t you see that there is a little baby in there? Be careful with my mommy!” - which is a very important sign for me.
    Her staff behaved arrogantly with me (hmmm, lets say in a rather Anglo-Saxon way).
    When Dr Lord got annoyed with me for not showing up at the discussed date (after getting out of hospital, one day before Christmas) she started scaring me while she was doing the ultrasound checkup, about what could happen to me and my baby, and refused to take my birth plan, saying ”I would lose it anyway, bring it back next time”.
    The database in her office is definitely messed up; her staff didn’t even know that I had been in hospital.
    When I wrote a letter saying that, on reflection, I’d rather go to another doctor, and asked them to transfer my file to his office, I never got an answer.
    All in all, there was a point when I decided that, despite her professionalism, I don’t want this woman to touch my child.

    Dr Mike Rogers

    Very kind and relaxed; he has endless patience to answer all my questions. As a senior professor, he went into details that he said not all new mothers want to know, but he seemed very happy to satisfy my interests and curiosity. The prior stress that I had always felt in Dr Lord’s clinic disappeared in a flash. His nurse is extremely kind, thoughtful and helpful. Even my older child felt relaxed in their presence (again, a very important sign).
    Since I delivered my first child with his predecessor Dr Dawkins, he happened to have my birth plan in his folder, and he went through it and agreed: basically, I wanted to do everything as natural as possible, and only if there is any medical reason to interfere will he do his job.
    In Matilda, everybody seemed to respect him a lot, and since he lives close by, it was the easiest thing to have him around safely all night.
    In the delivery room he only said “I know what’s your take on painkillers, but if you need one, do not hesitate to ask. Don’t worry, I will not mention it again.” And they left me in peace, the way I asked.

    Well, I almost venerate Dr Dawkins, but I have to say even he turned on the big lights when I was finally pushing out my first baby - Dr Rogers, however, conducted the birth in almost complete darkness. Everything was quick and safe; I felt great. They helped me to breastfeed my baby in practically the first second, on the bed.
    Dr Rogers’ warm, calm, professional attitude helped me to celebrate my second child’s arrival just the way I did with my first baby.
    Thank you, Dr Rogers!

    Hello
    I am in the middle of deciding on which doctor to see. At the moment I have an appointment booked with Dr Ghosh and Dr M Rogers. Any recent feedback on them would be appreciated. It sounds as though Dr Rogers is quite expensive with $1200 consultation fee excluding scans and medicines etc but if he's worth it then perhaps it justifies such high fee?
