Your Patient Journey with Dr Hugo

Dr Hugo Fernandes

A Melbourne-based fertility specialist helping couples and singles to achieve their family goals. Visit Dr Hugo for minimally invasive treatment, an honest approach and an empathic understanding.

Your Patient Journey


To receive a Medicare rebate, you’ll need a referral letter from your GP or another specialist. This also allows me to communicate with your GP or health team.

Book Appointment

I consult mainly from my rooms at Epworth Richmond, but there are also appointments available in Coburg and Warragul. Please call, or book online.

Before Appointment

We will email you a link to a thorough online health and fertility questionnaire. This allows us to spend more time concentrating on your fertility concerns at your first appointment.

First Appointment

I review your health and fertility questionnaire and any results before you attend. At this consultation, I’ll take a thorough history and possibly order further investigations. We’ll discuss the potential issues, and you’ll have an honest assessment of your fertility and possible treatments, including success rates and the pros and cons of each. This appointment will take around 30-45 minutes.

Review Appointments

Further review may be needed to discuss results and your treatment options. As all management is personalised, these are scheduled to your unique situation and treatment.


Fertility treatment can range from advice about timing to simple medications or even fertility optimising surgery.

Urgent Cases

Please call my rooms on (03) 9516 2895 if you require urgent care, and we will strive to accommodate your needs. I also welcome calls from your GP or referring doctor to discuss your case beforehand.
