“I had previously had a very negative IVF experience and was initially quite nervous that I would have a repetition of this, however when I came for my initial consultation with my husband, Dr Moses was very reassuring and explained that he was quite confident with my case and explained what he would do differently in order to ensure an improved outcome. He explained everything in layman's terms and we felt so much more knowledgeable and confident after just one appointment. Dr Moses has been very friendly, reassuring and generous with this time throughout and made me feel at ease regularly. On Dr Moses' recommendation, we tried a milder form of IVF stimulation this time, and I am so pleased to say we got a much better result! Not only are we now pregnant but we also have 4 embryos frozen for the future! Thank you so much Dr Moses!“

From the first meeting, Dr Moses was extremely professional and understanding of our situation. He took great lengths to explain medical terms and showed awareness and sympathy of our fertility journey. He was able to provide clear and concise explanations of various options and gave us hope and positivity when previous medical practitioners were unable to.

Dr Moses Batwala

I am so happy to hear you were happy with my management and explanation. I find it helps to empower my patients with knowledge so they are involved in the decisions which leads to better outcomes and a better patient journey. I hope the pregnancy goes on well.

Dr Moses is very knowledgeable and also kind. He has been very supportive throughout my journey. It has definitely helped in reducing the stress and anxiety associated with IVF

Dr Moses Batwala

I am so happy you had a positive experience with your IVF treatment. There is a lot of anxiety and myths about IVF, and talking and explaining all steps to patients makes the journey and ultimately the outcomes better.

Dr Moses is the best fertility consultant we’ve come across. After 4 years of trying for a baby, we got pregnant through IVF with Dr Moses. The first time we met him, we felt at ease and knew we were in good hands. He explained everything step by step and kept us calm through the process, also always made time to talk things through if we had any concerns. We’re now 9 weeks pregnant and we can’t thank him enough for all his help and support. We would definitely be recommending him to any family and friends that need fertility support.

Dr Moses Batwala

Thank you for your very kind words. I am so happy to hear you are 9 weeks pregnant. I hope the rest of the pregnancy goes well and do bring the baby back to visit.

From our very first appointment at the clinic, my husband and I knew we were in the best possible hands. Everything was explained clearly, Dr Moses and all of the staff were incredibly empathetic and caring. There is a mobile number that you can call the team on if you have any concerns out of hours, something that personally helped me a lot, to have reassurance that there was always someone at the end of the phone. After 3 years of trying for a baby and being told we'd never conceive, not even with IVF, I feel incredibly lucky to have been recommended Dr Moses Batwala and his team. We live 2 hours away from the clinic but I wouldn't have seen anyone else. Today I sit here writing this review at almost 11 weeks pregnant. We cant thank the team enough and have zero criticism. I only wish that my care was continuing with IVF London through until the birth!

Dr Moses Batwala

I'm so glad you had a great journey with myself and the team. I am happy all went well especially given that you had a 2 hour journey during treatment. Wishing you all the best for the rest of the pregnancy.

Very positive experience with Dr Batwala. After trying to conceive for a few months, I was quickly diagnosed with a number of fertility issues. During the appointments, Dr Batwala was always thorough in providing us with as much information as possible. The appointments were never rushed and he has always been sensitive to my emotions during our difficult time. I cannot thank him enough for all he has done so far, and because of him we are now expecting our first child.

Dr Moses Batwala

Thank you for your very kind words. I am so happy you are expecting your first child. I find it very important to give as much information and also not to rush a consultation to ensure patients understand firstly their situation and secondly the options of management. This helps shape the journey and ensure the correct support is in place. Congratulations and good luck with the rest of the pregnancy.

We met Dr Moses in November 2017, and have been under his care since. From the first time we met Dr Moses we felt comfortable. He took the time to consider the options available to us and approached the situation in a sensitive and caring way. From the moment we started treatment Dr Moses has been empathetic, sensitive, understanding, caring and professional, always going above and beyond to help ensure we were comfortable, understood each step of the process including discussing other options when our first round was unsuccessful. Our second round led to a positive outcome but a very difficult start and Dr Moses did not falter in his care and support, ensuring we were looked after in each emergency and supporting us through the best and difficult times. We would absolutely recommend Dr Moses. It is very hard to find a Dr who is professional, empathetic and goes above and beyond and you will always experience that with Dr Moses. We are still in touch with him and know that we can call on him if we need any support or advice.

Dr Moses Batwala

Thank you for your very kind words. I hope everything went well with the pregnancy.

Dr Moses is a very positive, caring fertility specialist. He takes time to listen, is honest in his advice, and always seeks to find an individualised approach based on how I am responding to treatment. I have low egg reserve and am 43 years old, and whilst I am not there yet, I am hopeful of a good outcome. I would recommend him to anyone who feels that they need genuine personalised approach to their fertility care.

Dr Moses Batwala

Thank you for these kind words. Whatever the hurdles we may encounter, I shall always do my best to make your journey as informative and as supportive as possible.

Moses is a gifted clinician but also a genuinely lovely human. He put us at ease from the start and has always been happy to explain recommendations in the level of detail we wanted. He is calm and unflappable - I am not! - and optimistic but not unreasonably so. Thanks to Moses I am 12 weeks pregnant after an excellent PGS cycle - my first with the Evewell after others elsewhere - and his level of patience with my paranoia after getting a positive pregnancy test should be noted in particular. I would recommend his care to anyone and would really like to say a huge thanks to him and his colleagues.

Dr Moses Batwala

I am so happy to hear you are 12 weeks pregnant and the pregnancy is going well so far. And thank you for the kind words describing me. I am so happy I have been of help and please get in touch if I can be of any further assistance.

My husband and I have been patients of Dr Moses for a year. Throughout our IVF journey he has been positive, knowledgeable and personable. He goes above and beyond what is required of him so you always feel supported through the journey. I would thoroughly recommend him to any couple looking into IVF or have any gynaelogical requirements. Having met several doctors, his passion for his work and personable nature makes him a rare find and a pleasure to be a patient of.

I was dreading going to see a fertility specialist and put it off for the longest time. Seeing a fertility specialist is so personal - you often feel emotionally as well as physically undressed! In the end, I needn't have worried! Dr Batwala managed to balance an extremely professional, informative and thorough approach with being personable, warm and approachable. Its not just that he was a fantastic doctor though. The clinic facilities and staff were all amazing too. Fertility is never a definite field, but having confidence in the team around you is something you cant put a price on. I wouldn't even think about going somewhere else. Highly recommend.
