To deliver individualised and personalised care, specialists must be highly skilled and knowledgeable and must commit sufficient time to conducting your treatment.
- Expertise and Experience.
These are essential attributes for a specialist to be able to critically evaluate your unique circumstances and to tailor treatment to suit you. These attributes are determined by your specialist’s training and number of years of experience. CREI Sub-specialists are the most highly accredited in the field of Infertility and Surgery (see next FAQ). Prof Homer also has over 20 years’ experience practising Gynaecology and Infertility. He worked in the top Fertility clinics and with the leading Fertility Sub-specialists in the UK.
- Up-to-date knowledge.
The treatment provided by your specialist is only as good as their expertise, their knowledge, and by how up-to-date they remain with new developments. Wrong advice about unnecessary treatments and so-called add-ons can over-inflate your treatment cost without improving your chance of success.
Prof Homer is one of Australia’s leaders in Gynaecology and Infertility. He is regularly invited to give talks at conferences about the latest developments in Infertility and Gynaecology, he regularly writes and publishes papers on Infertility and Gynaecology, he has a PhD in Fertility research, he is UQ’s first Full Professor of Reproductive Medicine, he set up and directs Queensland’s first oocyte research laboratory where he is actively engaged in research and he is Associate Editor with the Australia & New Zealand Journal of Obstetrics & Gynaecology.
- Allowing ample time per patient.
Prof Homer believes in longer consultation times to ensure that every single aspect of your history is fully explored, that you understand your problem, that you understand the meaning of test results and importantly, that you understand what kind of treatment is being proposed, why it is being proposed and what it would involve. If your consultation is brief and hurried, important information will be overlooked.
- Regular progress updates and patient contact.
Treatments like IVF are not “one-size-fits-all” treatments. Over 2-3 weeks, these highly involved treatments require continuous expert re-evaluation and often, changes to management plans as new (and often unpredicted) developments arise. Prof Homer personally undertakes all your ultrasound scans and evaluations during treatment. He regularly updates you with results so that the next steps of your treatment can be meticulously planned.
