|Author||Topic: Comparing doctors who perform tubal reversal surgery|
|gigi66 ||I was reading through these posts and just had to put my two cents in. The doctor that everyone is talking about is only about 3 hrs from my home. I had actually consulted with him for tubal reversal, but chose not to let him do it. (Actually, I would not let that man near my tubes w/a ten foot pole.) I then waited three years, found Dr. Berger and drove 6 hours to N.C. from Kentucky to let Dr. Berger, who I believe to be the best, perform my surgery. It always pays to research doctors and find one you are completely comfortable with.|
|donnajomama || That is totally the tone I got from his site, like he was just putting down every other way that wasn't his way. |
I like Dr. Berger's site, his credentials are incredible, and stats were a math class that I actually liked in college. I cannot wait to meet Dr. Berger, and get my TR underway, now just pray the money comes in.......
|Kem Petet || No problem, girl... I saw his website, too and compared the two. And the more I read, the more I realized that comparing them was NOT a good idea - BECAUSE their methods are different.|
I will say this... the one thing i didn't like about the other doctor's website was the "bashing tone" I got from it. It was as if he were insulting other professionals who do this same surgery. I didn't like that.
The main thing that I remembered was another thing my midwife told me. Basically she said that even if my doctor didn't look at me like a human, which he did... even if he didn't, though... he certainly looks at me like a number. And statistics are IMPORTANT. A doctor is NOT going to perform surgery on a patient who is NOT a good candidate - it won't make THEM look good. So that being said, even if Dr. Berger doesn't care about us as individuals (and just read the posts - we all know he DOES care), he certainly cares about his reputation and statistics, and I don't believe he would put his rep on the line by performing a paticular type of surgery that isn't successful.
Again - ALL THIS IS JUST MY HUMBLE OPINION.
Ain't it all enough to make your head go VVVVRRRRRROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM!!!!!?
