    Hi! I switched from sgh to dr Roland. I did 3 x fresh ivf with dr yu from sgh, but all failed. After that I tot I wanna give it one more last try, so I went around meeting with 3 docs, dr fonv yang, dr sf loh and dr Roland. Out of the 3, only dr Roland makes me feel very comfortable and he is very sincere. He read my case very carefully and suggest what to do next, one step at a time as mine is very complicated. This is my 1st fet with dr Roland. Tmr is my bt and I tested almost a week ago that it's a BFP.

    No, dr Roland is with virtus and his clinics are at parkway east and mount e novena.

    Ultimately I boils down to how much u wan to hold your baby in your hand...

    I have been through so much that this ivf cannot even compared to, but I really want a baby but yet I know it's no guarantee so I have always prepared myself well for failures for every ivf cycles

    i heard dr paul has joined virtus fertility centre at pacific plaza recetly, same centre as dr roland chieng using. dr Liaw the chief embryologist n his team from sincere has joined virtus a year back. I had my success w sincere w him n dr roland then this round though i have to pay much more but i believe my affinity w both of them, n yes the invest was worth it.

    i tik it boil down which dr u are comfy with, like wat angelbaby924 mentioned, u can consult a couple of them n decide who u prefer. we can't decide for u here cos it may works for us but not others.

    Hi dolly,
    Yes, I did pay few visit one at kk all Doctors seen so busy. .so don't think they really can explain more detail this is how my personaly felt.
    2. Just visit Dr Paul very polite Doctors but don't really talk much...but still answer all the questions we asked.

    embryologist,Doctors skill I believe also plays important rules towards success.
    So I am trying to find a Doctors with high chance on the success rates...as I am 38 nows I don't want to waste time

    If money is not an issue then u can try consult dr Roland. His waiting time is not Long. I m w him since 2012 Aug till now. My gal is delivered by him but too bad this time my twins dun get to be deliver by him..
    Overall we liked him a lot n he is the only dr tat my hub opened up n go into discussion w him, tat shows how comfy we are w him.
    His name is only recently keep mentioning in smh, in the past most ppl go to sf loh n kkh (thh).

    Sc Ling, besides seeing dr Roland I have been actively seeing tsb (tcm) all these while n did accupuncture during stimulation to boost my embryos n lining. Yes it's tiring but end day I want to see success n tell myself at least I try all means. Dr Roland is my 3rd fertility dr n tsb is my 4th tcm. I found my affinity w them n stick on till now.

    Dr Roland no longer does delivery hence I have to graduate from him after my Oscar n verifi test. I switched back to my previous tmc gynae dr Eunice Chua who Aso does ivf for me but I had no success under her. She did fibroid surgery for me before so I know her stitches are good.
     
  30. Oic, actually I just need him to perform weekly scan for me as I belong to high risk case so I would still need to deliver in kkh . I just need him to monitor me closely as I have some compliation. Is he able to see me in this case?
     
  31. dolly_gal

    dolly_gal Well-Known Member

    Hahaa of cos he can
    U paying for it , he shd b Glad to earn it
    His scan charges for twin is double which is 80*2 then plus 80 consultation
    Y u high risk ?
     
  32. Haha okok maybe I will consider him ... am high risk cos I had a mid term miscarriage before so I need a proactive gynae who can take care of me. Thanks for the advise !
     
  33. dolly_gal

    dolly_gal Well-Known Member

    Y u consider Roland

    I dun know wat happen to u for mid term miscarriage but do have faith w ur little ones now. I lost 1 twin in 2014 but the surviving twin gal is now 27 months naughty gal now.
     
  35. My last round miscarriage was lost in week 23 due to incompetent cervix , hence this round I need someone who can monitor me closEly. I read some good review on Dr roland , hmm is there any good gynae who you can recommend?

    I actually see Roland till almost wk18 it's up to ur comfort level when u wanna switch out from him.

    I m seeing dr Eunice Chua at tlc clinic at tmc level 3. There's dr paul Tseng there as well. U can Google for their clinic contact ..they are all from sgh previously same as Roland but more senior than him in terms of age.
     
  38. Thanks for the recom! Will check it out and decide which one to take. By the way , u intend to deliver in tmc?

    Can check with u sisters: 1st scan after 5 day of 150u gonal F stimulation (CD10) - only 5 out of 15 follicles is growing at 7-11mm. Is that follicies growth too slow? Lining is about 10mm. Really worried about the slow growth of the follicles - anything I can do to boost the growth?

  43. dolly_gal

    dolly_gal Well-Known Member

    Yes I did. It's like Chinese an tai yao...had it all the way till wk36 last pregnancy
    Some gynae dun agree so it's not necessary to tell them .. my gynae is ok cos he himself Aso refers patient to my tcm when she keeps spotting thruout first trimester till wk16 plus I heard

    Hi ladies,
    My blood test shows I've high FSH levels and low AMH, meaning low responders to stimulation.

    Based on the earlier threads, it suggest that the Dr will suggest mini IVF or low simulation which focus on quality not quantity.

    Does this means that high simulation injections will likely to increase egg quantity but of lower quality? I read many of you are under Roland Chieng, would you mind sharing what are his charges like for 1 cycle of IVF eg injection + monitoring, retrieval of eggs?

    Some ladies in another thread shared she was given DHEA and Androgel to increase her response to simulations, anyone of your Dr did the same too? I read that wheatgrass can help lower FSH levels and thus increase response to simulations, anyone tried?

    I'm only meeting my Dr next week to better understand his suggested next steps and would like to better know the other treatments available.

    Thanks in advance!

    not sure if it is a coincidence but I heard a few patients with Dr Roland, mostly those over 35 and had a few ivf failures, will have the 2nd stim cycle being cancelled for no good reason.

    My fren is not low responder and had 12 follicles retrieved on her first cycle with low stimulations. On her first stim cycle, she started injections on day6 of the cycle and did comprehensive BT on first day. 2nd stim, she noticed that he did not do comprehensive BT, just LH & FSH. on 2nd visit, he did not even do a scan. basically he did nothing, just say come back 2 days later, no scan, no additional meds, no bt. on 3rd visit, the scans shows a few follicles but he told the nurse small ones no need to record, so recorded only one bigger one. But there were 3 follicles on the left. He then told my fren to abort the cycle. My fren is not convinced as there are already at least 4 follicles recorded and she hasn't even started on any injections just oral pills. and usually there will be one lead follicle growing faster than the rest. He even ever retrieved only 2 follicles from another lady so no reason why he needs to cancel this one. My fren said he didn't really give any good reason for that and just said ok we will continue the cycle.

    His charges are somewhat different from other docs as he charged a package price for scans and BTs for the stim cycle and any cancelled cycle will still need to pay that package amount.

    Not sure if others have the same experience? i am looking for another doc to start my last cycle so quite worried when i heard this from my fren.
