"Positive First Fertility Appointment"

About: Good Hope Hospital / Gynaecology

(as the patient),

I was seen on time by the very friendly and knowledgeable Nurse Specialist Helen who took a concise medical history, all the while explaining in detail treatments and procedures that I should expect and what they are looking for.

I felt reassured and positive about my options as I was offered some early tests there and then in a quiet and private environment. I left feeling confident, and that there was going to be ongoing care and follow up. I appreciated the HCA assistance in organising my next appointment closer to home. Both Nurse Helen and her HCA made myself and my Mum welcome, and took time and care to acknowledge us both.
