    Recommended fertility doctors

    Hi, I have been seeing Dr Lo for some time. He was recommended to me by a friend who had had success with him. Apparently he has a very good reputation but I am starting to get a little concerned. The doctor sees so many people that he never seems to remember the particular details of my situation, my appointments are rushed and I'm never convinced that the options/alternatives/necessary actions are properly considered for my individual case. Also recently I've had a couple of setbacks which are partly due to lack of attention I think.

    Is this normal for fertility clinics? I know these doctors are very busy... Or should I be looking elsewhere?

    Any advice much appreciated.

    I would be concerned too. It's such high stakes and an emotional time (I know, I've been there). I would change doctors if you feel that way. I have to say that I find all the doctors here book themselves up with a lot of patients and typically only schedule 15 mins per patient.
    I highly recommend Dr Philip Ho who I have seen for the past two years. He is not always the most charming, but he is extremely professional and we have found his advice spot on. He definitely always knows exactly what is going on. His nurses, especially Kelly, are fantastic too.

    I'd be concerned too. I had a similar experience with my doctor - he never seemed to know my case facts and was refreshing himself while I was sitting in his room. I did not conceive with him tho, by god's grace, i did subsequently.

    I'd recommend Dr Patrick Chan. We were referred to him by Sally Ferguson, who isn't really interested in fertility issues. He's pretty busy, but always had time to explain things to us, and never seemed rushed. He made me feel like he was genuinely concerned with our progress. When we finally did fall pregnant, his ante natal care was excellent.

    Thank you all.

    I'll see how this run goes and then probably have a look at other doctors recommended afterwards. This quest becomes all consuming doesn't it!

    I was with Dr Ho as well. It never bothered me that he wasn't the chattiest person at all times, I just needed to know he knew what he was doing, and I think he does. For my iui's he always asked if I was hurting throughout the procedure, and would give me a reassuring pat on the arm when he saw I got teary afterwards (it wasn't particularly comfortable on that occasion due to the position of my cervix). I like him a lot.

    Dr. Tang Oi Shan

    Hello, I'm new on this forum and I need some help. I will start IVF with Dr. Tang Oi Shan (Dept. of Women's Health and Obstetrics, HK Hospital and Sanatorium). Does anyone know her or have some notice about it? Thank you in advance.

    Hi Adrianna
    I've never heard of Dr Tang, but I do know that the Lab at HK San is excellent, and their embryologists are fantastic. And in IVF, the lab is crucial, especially if you are doing ICSI.
    When do you begin?
    GOOD LUCK
