If you’re ready to start your family or if you've already been trying to conceive but not having any luck, an early, accurate diagnosis of any underlying medical issues is important. It will help you choose the right path to conception – a natural approach, a medical approach or an integrated, holistic combination of approaches.
At Genea’s Kent Street clinic in Sydney we have a unique service to help you investigate without taking what we understand can be a big step - seeing a Fertility Specialist. Genea’s Fertility GP offers a Free Fertility Assessment* to help you take the first steps to investigate and understand your fertility. We developed this service as we know GPs have to be across so many different areas of medicine that it’s difficult for them have detailed expertise in all of them - hence our focused Fertility GP.
For more information call 1300 497 229 or book a Fertility Assessment* online now.
Genea’s Fertility GP, Dr Helen Demetriou is an experienced family General Practitioner from a busy private practice in Lindfield. Over the past 10 years, she has found reproductive medicine an increasingly common and fascinating area of her daily practice.
She graduated with honours from University of Sydney medical school in 1997 and undertook her residency years at Royal North Shore Hospital before moving to Melbourne with her husband. She was enrolled in General Surgical training at St Vincent’s Hospital, which included covering Obstetrics and Gynaecology in peripheral rotations. She continued surgical training in Gloucestershire, UK but subsequently decided to switch to the RACGP training program on return to Sydney.
Helen has always maintained an interest in family planning, shared antenatal care and paediatrics with Diplomas of Family Planning and Child Health.
Don’t worry if you live outside of the Sydney metropolitan area or if travelling into the city to see our Fertility GP doesn’t work for you. Your local GP can easily refer you to a Genea Fertility Specialist. Just call our Fertility Advisor for help choosing a Fertility Specialist and then print out and take along this GP Referral Form to your appointment.
If you’re at all worried about your fertility or wondering why you haven’t conceived yet, don’t wait any longer, instead get some answers. Call us on 1300 497 229 and let us help you figure out the next steps that suit you best. Almost all of our patients say the best piece of advice they’d give people trying to conceive is to seek help earlier.
