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 :)

Hi Zarah

Just interested to find out if you have seen the FS at Tygerberg? What was your impression of them? Shopping and researching for myself?

Would appreciate input?

Thanks

Hi Andrea

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.

Check his website www.fertilitydoctor.co.za

Good luck and keep me posted

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.
