"A great experience overall"
2 50Reviewed 19 Dec 2017 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Ultrasound
Scan - panorama

Some doubt about their competences, they can do a scan in a really pretty luxurious environment so you do have a great experience overall. But on a discussion on the Zika virus, they were clueless about the recommendations of the world health organization.

"I now attend Dr Gibb to have the coil fitted which he has done several times"

Treatment Received: Fertility Test
I've been attending the birth clinic and Dr Gibb specifically for just under a decade. The antenatal care is excellent, the latest equipment and Dr Gibb's experience and expertise marry well. I now attend Dr Gibb to have the coil fitted which he has done several times.

Excellent

"Just hope I'll have enough time to have my third baby with Dr.Gibb"
5 50Reviewed 23 Sep 2016 We were unable to verify the reviewer.
Treatment Received: Obstetrician / Gynaecologist Consultation
I have been looked after Dr.Gibb snd his team during both of my pregnancies. I could not recommend them highly enough. I have been lucky enough the first time round to find Dr.Gibb. Not only he has years of experience and devotion but he is very supportive and thorough yet never overreactive. I have been blessed with such an obstetrician and have given two smooth natural successful births so far, one of which was a delivery in the birthing pool. I would not even consider looking for another obstetrician and will feel very said once Dr.Gibb retires. Just hope I'll have enough time to have my third baby with Dr.Gibb.

Moreover, Dr. Gibb has build up a very professional and caring team that can always be relied on. The girls at the Birth company are a pleasure to deal with every time.

The best!!!

"Great staff, felt welcomed and comfortable during Consultation and IUCD"
5 50Reviewed 05 Sep 2016 Review verified by phone.
Treatment Received: Fertility Test
I've had 2 previous experiences of having the birth control implant coil fitted (no children) and this time I was so apprehensive I decided to book a private appointment with Mr Gibb, and I am so glad I did.
The cold I had fitted, had had the threads trimmed down so much it was a real effort to remove. Dr Gibb made me feel reassured and took his time with the removal, painful, but nowhere near as bad as my previous NHS experience.
Then the new birth control implant, this was the part I was leas looking forward to...30 seconds a bit of an ouch an done!
Mr Gibb said that the way my previous coil had been fitted, unless I had seen an expert I would have needed a aesthetic for the removal.

Great staff, felt welcomed and comfortable, even kind enough to make me a cup tea at the end!

"I would highly recommend"
5 50Reviewed 23 Jun 2016 Review verified by email.
Treatment Received: IUD - Intrauterine Device
IUD fitting (never had children)
After my unsuccessful experience trying to fit the copper coil on the NHS I was referred to a hospital to have this done under General aesthetic. 
I was so terrified by the whole experience I decided to go private! So I booked my appointment with The birth company and I am so happy I did!
Dr Donald Gibb's room was warm and welcoming, no horrible and cold gyno chairs or terrifying metal equipment sound. 
I also had a few reservations regarding the fact that Dr Gibb was a male doctor, having met him I no longer have the same view. Dr Gibb made me feel very comfortable, he constantly reassured me and I felt a great deal of trust in him.

The process started with an ultrasound, then I was measured, the actual fitting of the coil and then another ultrasound to make sure it was in the right place. Although the procedure is a little uncomfortable, it is all over in 5 minutes(!!!) and lasts 5 years, in my opinion a much better alternative to hormonal contraceptives.

I would highly recommend Dr Gibb! :D

Flexible appointments! Very friendly staff! :D

"Thrilled with the implant"
5 50Reviewed 17 Dec 2015 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: IUD - Intrauterine Device
IUCD implant. I have never had children and was very nervous of having the coil implanted. The implant was undertaken by ultra scan, which was expertly overseen by Dr Gibbs, I had no pain or any issues during the treatment. I have been thrilled with the implant and had no issues. I would not hesitate to recommend this procedure or clinic to anyone.

First class clinic with excellent follow up service. I can not recommend highly enough. I chose this clinic due to the procedure being undertaken by ultra scan and the knowledge of Dr Gibbs, who was very reassuring.

"Baseline scan"
2.6 50Reviewed 13 May 2013 Review verified by email.
Treatment Received: Ultrasound
Baseline scan

Service was good but I was quoted £120 and then charged £180 which I wasnt happy about as I could have gone to another clinic which was less. Its important that clinics are clear on there pricing and dont add extra cost after you have had the procedure.

Dr Donald Gibb responded to this review:

Dear Sarah, Thank you for your comments. We just wanted to clarify to avoid future misunderstanding that although you were quoted for one scan when you booked via email on the day of your appointment on your registration form you underlined you needed a more detailed scan from the original quotation and this is why there was a difference in price. We would have been happy to clarify this on the day when payment was taken if you mentioned it to the receptionist at the time. We hope we will see you again in the future. Machi Panteliadou
