Just curious as to what you would do... at least those who have or would consider doing a CVS. With my DD pregnancy, since life was more flexible then
I was able to travel out of state to Philly to have my CVS done by Dr. Wapner.
Now, with a toddler and my DH traveling extensively for work this coming month, I feel it would be easier to do the CVS locally. I asked my RE for a recommendation (he's the one who originally referred me to Dr. Wapner as the absolute best, etc) and he said that there is a doctor he knows very well locally who actually trained under Dr. Wapner that I could feel comfortable going to.
I spoke to that Dr. today. He said that yes, he was trained by Dr. W back in the 80's. I asked about complication/mc rate and number of CVS's done. He says that Dr. W, who does CVS's and amnios all day, has done about 40,000+ in his career. This doctor, who is also an RE, has done 3,000 so far. He says the m/c rate (though I think this is general, not necessarily his, I should've asked) is 0.5%
What do you all think? Is 3,000 a good number in terms of experience?
Thanks for your help
