has anyone got any recommmendations for the consultants in Holles Street?
They're all very good.
I'm currently with Boylen as he looked after me after my ectopic and I found him great. I transferred from McParland but that's because I liked the way Boylan looked after me and I found I could really talk to him
Declan Keane very professional and a great doctor, tends to ignore partners though.
Prof. Fionnuala McAuliffe very very nice and very through
Prof. Colm O'Herlihy again nice but think he's retiring
Dr McParland - Very very popular and very good.
I'm with Stephen Carroll - nice man, very brisk and efficient but very kind too. And he has such warm hands that I wasn't convinced he was a real doctor
I'm with Dr. Robson.
At the moment he is the master in the hospital and really looked after my sister in law when she had her last baby.
What put me off with some of the Consultants was that they weren't actually based in Holles street for your visits so you had to go to Blackrock for your visits.
It was handier for me to go direct to Holles Street for my visits.
Dr. Robson is a quiet man but very nice and I get a scan on each visit.
Best of luck with your decision.
Dr McParland - can't praise the man enough, I really liked him. He doesn't say a whole lot unless you ask him questions, but he was brilliant all the way through my pregnancy, and also during the complications prior to birth
Loving Dr Keane I have to say.I was recommended him on here and I dont regret my choice.Don't agree with previous poster re ignoring partner.He always includes mine on visits.Thats my personal experience anyway.
There's a post here on him

That's great to hear, thanks for the feedback. I've just booked myself in with Dr Keane too.
Unfortunately, first appointment not until Jan which will have me at 16 weeks so I'm going to go for a private one beforehand.
I went with Dr McParland aswell. Such a nice man, and as another poster said doesn't talk much, but will answer any questions you have to ask.
Alton - I see your due date is nearly here ! Best of luck. Just wondering whether you went private with Stephen Carroll ? I have my first apt with him in December and am just wondering what to expect. Does he do a scan at the first apt ? I will be 12 weeks at that point.
Diddums I have my first appt with Dr CArroll in DEcember too and they said he would probably scan me for dates as my lmp was Aug 24th but i told them i probably didn't conceive until sept 26th so it sounded like it wasn't the norm. They gave me the big scan date at the same time which is the end january. HTH
