My partner and I visited Aberdeen Fertility Unit Clinic for our first appointment, our initial discussions surrounding our options for starting a family and the results obtained from tests to date. Our Doctor was very polite and advised that he was running late but would be with us shortly, we did not mind this at all, in fact we were quite pleased to have been kept informed. I work in healthcare and understand that sometimes services run late because some patients require more time than others, on the understanding that should I need extra time, I also would receive it. However, our appointment was at the end of the day and the clinic was closing around us. We had a preliminary discussion with a HCSW, then seen our Doctor and was taken to have an intimate scan. We were taken to an initial scan room and then redirected to a second scan room, as the original one had been closed for the day. Following my scan we were then talked through the remainder of the consultation in said scan room which wasn't, if I'm honest very comfortable. Our Doctor had said we could go to another room but we were aware the clinic was closing and we felt rushed, so just went with it.
That said, the staff were very helpful and polite and the information we were given was clear. Although we may have been more inclined to ask questions had we not felt hurried by the goings on around us.
