    ZuW, i stay in cck too, and i see dr adrian woodworth. he is a very nice gynae, and waiting time is about maximum 30mins(according to my own experience). however, i only go during non peak days(weekdays). dr adrian is a man of little words and he only answer when i ask him but he does give 'basic' advices. overall i like him.

    How is Dr Wong Mun Tat like? What about the charges?



    Planning for baby... thought i'd like to do checkup first like ZuW.



    Just wondering, is it better to go to a gynae near your home or better near workplace?

    ham,

    Dr Wong is a very nice guy! =) i can't say much about his stitching skills cos yet to try.. you can search for his reviews in this thread..



    http://www.singaporemotherhood.com/forumboard/messages/36738/414782.html?1275818969



    for myself i'm working at tuas so impossible to find a gynae near my work place. depends on yourself? does the clinic have night consultations? do you want your hubby to go for the checkup together with you? =)

    Hi, my gynae was Dr LN Sim. She's really nice although she looks a bit stern. Her package is very affordable too.

    Dr Benjamin is pretty detailed person. It will not be chop chop kind of appointments. He is patient in explaining to u as well.

    You can always change when u dun feel good with ur gynae.

    Thanks

    Hi ZuW,



    My gynae is Dr Wong Mun Tat.Went to him when I was trying to conceive. He is a very nice guy though a man of little words. But he is very careful and a conservative man who will not recommend stuff that is not neccessary.



    His stitching is ok, had a diagnostic test wif him that requires operation.



    His clinic is opposite Bukit Gombak MRT station, so very convenient for you i guess.

     
  19. little_nuriko

    little_nuriko New Member

    Dr Wong Charges are reasonable i guess. Not sure how much does other gynae charges. His charges are $60-80 for consultation depending on duration. scan separate charges.

    Hi mummies and mummies to be,



    I am totally new here and have been trying to conceive for the pass 2 years seem no news. Thus thought of looking for a good gynae to check and stick to him/her all the way...



    Eventually I will like to delivery either at KK, Raffles or Parkway but seem like there is lots of mummy delivering/delivered at TCM (Thomson)?



    Can I ask for opinion of Dr Watt Wing Fong - at Compasspoint? Her fee, experience with her etc..



    As I do not want too travel far to visit the gynae all the time as I stay in Hougang area.

    Hi

    I Also went to see dr Adrian tan and managed to view the hospital tour at tmc today

    although I like dr Adrian tan service, I feel that the delivery suite in tmc seem very cramped,



    the other thing is after delivering our bb, our bb will be bought out of the delivery suite to take measurement



    I don feel comfort abt bb leaving me but my hub assured me that he will eye on our bb upon delivery

    so now we are thinking shld we take up the 1bedded or 2 bedded ward

    Hi fish

    the hospital has a daily tour at 11am and 2 pm and is guided by the staff nurses at the concerige counter, u know the place where the valet sit and wait???

    My Edd. Is 5 mar and I read 1 of the message that your is close to mine too!



    Honestly, I do find his delivery charge ex cos I looked at the 4 bedded and 1 bedded package frm the clinic, I deduct the amt frm hosp charges and his delivery work out ad 1700??



    A bit steep lei

    Hi Lin

    I saw your message but there was a comment that dr wing charges is ex cos is frm raffles medical.

    At first I aso wan to see her for convenience since I don wan to travel too far, but the tot of having a good gynae and something comfty do come w a price... So in the end, I go for dr Adrian tan - tmc and my hub has thumb up for our 1st visit yest!



    The only dilemma is I don feel good for the rooms and delivery suite. I find too cramped

    my Gynae is Dr LN Sim from TMC. Very experienced gynae. I went to see her as i was TTC.

    So lucky that she scanned and told me i was ovulating and told me to go home to try...



    that month i got preggy and i went to see her.. i continued with her all the way and i must say her pkg is very reasonable.



    Like her very much.

    Both my kids are delivered by Dr Wong Mun Tat, a very good docter and i am planning to visit him soon for pap smear test. He is patient and is very skillful with his stitches all i have heard good reviews bout him too when i went TMC for check ups, the nurses there like him too. Btw, clinic is directly opposite Bukit Gombak mrt.

    Hi hi Ladies,



    I was reccomended by some of my colleagues that Dr LC Cheng from TMC is good. Anyone has any experience with this gynea before? Most importantly is the skill of stitching.. ;P Need to book my first antenatal appointment soon. Cheers!

    Hi mine is Dr A L Lim. My other 2 girlfriends also delivered by him. Detailed, 'playsafe' type if u knw wat I mean. Felt rest assured under his care. Supplements he is selling at reasonable price, even cheaper than some pharmacy outside.

    I will definitely return to him for 2nd baby.

    Charges reasonable, $40+ per visit compared to some at $60 for consultation.

    Be prepared to wait, even if u call in to take Q no.

    Hi everyone,

    Initial choice of Dr Yvonne Chan from TMC (thru a friend's recommendation) is out, as i've just learned that she is fully booked for the mth i'm due.



    My GP recommends a Dr Judy Wong from TMC. Is there anyone here currently with Dr Wong, or was with her previously? Like to find out more.

    Hi Moon, I'm with Dr Judy Wong from TMC. This is my first pregnancy and EDD is Feb 2011. I was recommended this gynae from a friend's wife.



    So far, she has been professional, friendly and efficient. But she seems to have many expatriate clientale! Dunno whether that's a good or bad thing. and she seems very popular - waiting times are usually at least 30 minutes even though I have an appt - this is for Saturday mornings.



    She is open Mon - Fris but Wed PM she is off. Then Sat is half day morning. Sundays and PH closed. Her 2 receptionists are nice young girls, very helpful and polite.



    I guess you can try her. However, it seems she doesn't offer any consultation package (some gynaes do, once you hit the 5 mth mark). Also, I find that you may have to prompt her for some info ahead of time. Maybe I'm just too kan cheong :p



    Finally, although she is based at TMC, she can deliver either there or at Mt Alvernia Hospital. I had a preference for the latter and informed her at least twice previously, early on in the 1st tri. However, we didn't book or confirm anything. Last Sat when I visited her and brought this topic up again, she mentioned that her quota for Feb 2011 was full for Mt. A so she cannot deliver there for Feb. I was really disappointed and also a little bit upset that she didn't mention anything about quota earlier (this is an example of not being forthcoming with information sometimes). So looks like I have to deliver at TMC instead. But she then told me it's too early to book and to wait till Dec instead ... so now, I'm wondering - should I wait or should I insist?? What if come Dec, there's no more space at TMC or Dr. Wong is so fully booked (in terms of time) that she can't deliver for me? She should let me know beforehand if she intends to get a replacement gynae, or I can find my own right ??

    hi mommies,



    if you want to deliver in private hospitals, i recommend dr kee swee hae, he has his own clinic at far east plaza. though he is old man, he is very experience, caring and attentive. he can be contacted 24/7 if you need to speak to him urgently. he can deliver in most of the private hospital. his charges are relatively cheap too.



    need his contact, can PM me.

    I am seeing Dr. Woo Bit Hwa. He delivers at TMC and Mt.A. He have clinics at tiong bharu and pungol area. Charges are as follows: S$698 (Tiong Bharu) and heard that he charge S$800+ (Pungol clinic. He doesn't talk much, but when you ask him questions, he will explain everything in detailed and very specific. He won't rush you during consultation visits which I find it very comfortable. I read from different Singapore forums that his stitching skills is superb. some go for C-section and can walk normally after a week and stitches are gone as well.

    Hi All,



    New to the forum, but glad to share.



    I was with Dr Ben Tham, nice gynae, patient in answering all qns, esp from a 1st time mum. He is also very encouraging and he'll be more than willing to answer emails as I understand, though I never had to do so. He's with WC Cheng Associates, previously with KK as Snr Consultant (where I understand he was extremely popular). I was also referred to him by my fren. =)

    My gynae is Dr Kek Lee Phin. She is based at Mt E and delivers at Mt E only but she has a weekly wed morning clinic at Bt Batok central. Two thumbs up for her. Highly skilled and very motherly and patient. I know I can trust any emerencies in her hands. She enabled me to have a VBAC. Calming effect every time I see her :)



    If you want her contact, can google or PM me.

    Dr. Paul tseng... Extremely patience gynae.. I have a super difficult and long labor but dr Paul was very patience and even though my baby turned to a wrong position at the very few moments before he came out ... Dr paul calmly with his experience help to deliver my baby naturally...



    I believe after 26 hrs alot of gynae will suggest c-sec

    Dr Beh on 5th floor. Friendly, reasonable rates and good stitching skills. Patient wit natural birth. I remembered when my placenta took almost 30mins to expel, he sit there waiting and he saved my life. A lot of women could die from shock if placenta did not expelled manually. Just saying he is good, friendly and compassionate

    Dear all trying to get conceive or to-be-mummy,



    Those remarks of this dr selina chua are indeed true!! Its up to you whether to believe or not.. I do not like to bad-mouth anyone but its up to you whether u can accept this type of service or consultation from a experienced dr.



    To cut story short. Visited this dr for tying to get conceive and waited from 11am to 2pm then manage to see her. Told her that i had been to NUH to take those tests etc (but the NUH doc didnt say anything) hence we r seeing a chinese physician now (for 5 mths). Our Chinese physician advise me to take a blood test and he did explain to me on my result. So I decided to see a western doc for treatment but still going for tcm too.. for faster results.



    Finally my turn and went in, she went thru what are the steps we can do..eg. step 1 - check my hormones, step 2-my hb sperm analysis, step 3.. step 4..etc



    Now, after talking all these.. she ask me "What do you want to do?".. of course my ans will be to get pregnant!.. She said "of course your final objective is to get pregnant".. then ask me back again what I want to do.. This is ridiculous! If I know what measure/medicine/test to take, I wouldnt go to see a gynae!! Then she say I am not sure what I want.. OMG! This dr is simply wasting of my time!! And she somemore advise me to go see another dr (her affiliate) for advise. End up paying $100 for her nonsense 'advise'! Also, she said no point i go around changing doc best to stick to 1 doc.. in my heart, I was thinking, how to stick to one doc when u met such doc..what a bad luck!
