I am dissatisfied with my RE. Dr is consistently late for appointments. I've seen him several times and he's been late for at least one hour. Today morning he was supposed to do utrasounds at 8am, Dr showed up at 8:30am. The nurse warned me that "he is known for being tardy". I visited Dr regularly since December last year, but Dr still cannot remember me. Today Dr opened my chart before u/s and asked who my doctor was...looking at his own writing!! :)

This morning, we had a conversation like:

Dr: When was your cycle day 1?
Me: June 1st
Dr: Writing it down. Let's see today is June 10, what is your cycle day? pause
Me: What do you think?
Dr: ?
Me: It's cycle day 10!
Dr: Why did you come for u/s on cycle day 10 and not on cycle day 13?
Me: I asked the nurse at the clinic to schedule it for CD 13, but she scheduled it for CD 10 instead, and she insisted on CD 10. I thought that you told her so.
Dr: no answer

This is my last IUI at UBC, and if it doesn't work, I will be switching doctors or looking to transfer to another clinic.
Me: 44, DH: older
14 years TTC
2006 - first visit to fertility clinic
7 IUIs (BFN)
2 IVFs (BFN)
Nov 2010 IVF own eggs m/c at 8 weeks
May 2012 DE IVF m/c at 6 weeks
Aug 2013 - DE FET twin pregnancy, m/c at 8 weeks
Nov 2014 - DE FET (BFN)
Jan 2015 - DE FET (BFP) - miracle baby boy born.

Hi Maya,

That is crazy!! Who is your doctor there? I would suggest trying to switch doctors, but the only problem with that is because of the "team" approach at UBC you might end up seeing the doctor you were trying to get away from.

I can totally understand why you would be frustrated!

I wish you all the luck for this cycle and hopefully you will get a BFP and you won't have to worry about seeing another doctor.

I had Dr Ho Yuen intially at UBC but switched to Dr. Catherine Allaire - she is great. Very nice, friendly and got me pregnant with twins. I did not like Dr. Ho Yuen's style.
