Hello, I will be going for my first ICSI at Tygerberg in September. I am nervous and excited at the same time. I just wanted to know from anyone who has been for the treatment or IVF at the hospital what was it like?

Hi Zarah...I've read your posts and now decided to change to Dr Slabbert as he comes highly recommended. Do you know what his pricing for IVF is???? I've had my 1st consult with a FS in Rondebosch but wasn't impressed as he doesn't talk much, LOL.
After a few calls and research, I established that they dont perform fertility treatments at Tygerberg anymore.
Someone on this forum told me about Dr Slabbert at Panorama. He used to work at Vincent Palotti and started his own practice. I got quotes and he charges the same rates as Vincent Palotti.
I am now a patient of Dr Slabbert because he's closer to me and I am VERY happy with him. I had a LAP done by him last month and he is really excellent.
I am so excited! Because I was worried that the visits to the FS is going to impact on my work. I know you have to visit regularly. And travelling to Vincent Palotti in traffic would mean getting to work late.
Thank you so much.
As I said, lets keep FX that I dont need to make that appointment
