I'm with Dr. Bentov. I've met Dr.Chang I am sure as the monitoring is done by which ever doctor is on that day. He was very nice. But he isn't my main doctor there. Dr. Bentov is sweet and quiet spoken and nice. Dr. Casper who I hear is hard to get as your doctor seems very nice as well.

Me: 33 DH: 39

Dr Chang did my transfer recently and has done a couple of monitoring ultrasounds for me as well. He is quite serious and appears to be proficient. Apparently he has some super certification, you can read about it on the TCART website.

But if you're looking for someone more approachable, down to earth and really kind & caring I don't think you can do any better than Dr. Bentov! He's fantastic!

My favourite thing about Dr. Chang is that he always replies to my emails even off-hours. I am a very anxious patient and so this helps a lot. I think sometimes I must drive him up the wall but he has only responded with compassion. He once phoned me rather than replying to my email (on the weekend) because he could tell I just needed to relax. (I was in Toronto from 8 hrs away where I live and in a hotel all by myself which may have contributed to my anxiety) The other thing I love about Dr. Chang is his positivity and honesty. He is always positive for us but at the same time he is frank with what he believes is worth our time and money and what isn't. We aren't rich by any means so we appreciate his honesty.

The good outweighs any bad, which the only thing is that I often feel when I am at the clinic that he is very rushed bc he has so many patients and such a busy schedule. However, I would take that in exchange for the questions he is always answering for me when I am not at the clinic.

Sometimes I wonder if I would have had success by now at another clinic as I have now had 4 unsuccessful iui's with 2 miscarriages. However I know that Dr. Chang is more than competent and TCART is one of the best (I have heard) so i feel that he deserves to keep my trust.
