What was he like to deal with? Any reason why you went with Dr Paul Belt and not Dr Peter Widdonwson who seems to pop up on here a bit?

How long did it take to get a consultation? Did you require and GP’s referral at all? Consultation fees?

Dr Widdowson was too far away from me, he's at the gold coast
Dr Belt was very professional and made me comfortable and he was realistic with how the results would turn out
I called at the end of october for a consultation and the earliest was 22nd November and I also booked the surgery date at the same time
I went to my family doctor and told him about it and he gave me a referral, no dramas there. I got it after I had booked
Consult fee was $120 but I get $65 back from Medicare
I will also be getting about $700 back from Medicare after the operation

Hope I have helped, feel free to ask more

Were you happy with what he said a realistic outcome would be? Any issues with possible excuses skin ect?

You rate yourself an 8 –9, compared to my photos on the like below would you say you’re about the same or worse?

really is annoying that no one ever posts the photos after they're done, this usually means they're satisfied to say the least and they just want to put gyno behind them.. I'll make sure when i get mine done that I'll post photos up.
