    I had quite a bad experience with one in Hougang. The clinic was so quiet. When I went there, I was about the only customer for the 2 visits. The staff seemed rather inexperienced. When my son pooed and I had to change his diaper, they stared at me doing the job. And the doctor gave the wrong diagnosis. My son was just having brochiolitis, and did not require the Xray that he ordered.

    I went there simply because it was near my place. Not cheap, I spent about $70 per visit. Definitely not worht my money!

    I sent both my kids to Kids Clinic at Rivervale Mall. Both Dr Tan and Dr Lim are very nice and approachable. They really take the time to explain and answer all your qns.

    Charges are also not cheap and be prepared to wait. Previously there was also a thread on this topic. You might want to do a search.

    Hi

    Sorry, i tried again but can't find the thread also.
    I tried to search for 'Kids Clinic' (both words), there are a few comments from mummies. But these comments are 'scattered' not together in one thread.

    I can't remember the exact charges as normally the amount that i paid includes payment for injections and development tests.

    You may wish to check with them at Tel :68811711

    ABC - anthony baby clinic - long queue but the PD is good!

    i think he takes time to listen to the parents, ask questions. and he is the first PD i have seen will carry the baby and make the baby feels at ease!

    you could try him!

    Hi Sonic,

    My boy is seeing Dr Allyson Tan at The Kid's Clinic at Rivervale Mall. She is a very nice, caring and approachable doctor. My boy sees her since 1 mth old, he's going 3 years old this year. You may wish to try. Their charges are comparable to any other PD.

    zenn New Member

    Hi win & News,

    Can I check how's the waiting time and charges for Dr Lim & Dr Tan @ Kid's clinic? Also, are they from TMC?

    Thanks!
     
  19. sonic

    sonic Member

    hi newss, i brought my boy to see dr allyson tan. yes, agree with you that she's quite nice.

    zenn, the waiting time is pretty long, abt 1-2hrs. charges is around $60-$70 think it's quite standard for all PDs...
     
  20. newss

    newss New Member

    Hi Zenn,

    The waiting time is about 1-2 hours. Yes Dr Tan is affiliated to TMC & Mt Alvernia. As for Dr Lim, I'm not very sure, I think TMC too.

    Hi,

    Can I have some feedback on the baby clinic at Hougang Ave 8, Dr Saw baby clinic.

    Can I check how's the waiting time and charges? How are their service? good? patient PD? Known that there have 2 PDs, could you recommend which PD is better?

    Sorry to ask so many questions. I stay near there so think to bring my child there.... Thanks!

    hi blurqueen,

    my boy was coughing for the past two weeks.. getting better after seen Dr Tan from Kids Clinic.. he is just 2 mths old, cough non-stop and got very block nose, heartache!

    He vomits during every feed, cos he doesn;t know how to clear the phlegm, so he always try to clear by throwing out the milk. PD said it's normal for baby to vomit when they are sick... so dun worry.

    hi blurqueen30,

    rivervale mall is the small shopping mall just opposite rivervale primary school, yes with mcdonalds, kfc and long john silvers at the ground floor and ntuc at 3rd floor, foodcourt at 2nd floor.

    normal consultation for first-time visit should be $40-$45. subsequent visits i think it's around $35.

    anyone out there let your bb take pneumcoccal injection? may i know how many jabs and how much u pay?

    Sonic
    My girl took the pneumococcal jab at Kids Clinic, Dr Allyson Tan. I think abt $170 per jab. If below 2 yrs old, need to take 3 jabs. More than 2yrs old, then 1 jab.
     
  38. kanikelim

    kanikelim New Member

    My child is also taking pneumococal at Kids clinic. She is 15 months so 1 more jab to go (total 3). I think it's worth to spend for this vaccination.

    Can anyone share if chicken pox vaccination should be taken? I cannot decide on that.
     
  39. thejfamily

    thejfamily New Member

    kanike: my child had pneumococcal jab at Kids Clinic and was administered by Dr. Lim..

    regards to chicken pox vaccination, we have not let him go for it yet... we r like u, still thinking to let him go for it or not...
     
  40. sonic

    sonic Member

    hi all, just realised tat, all vaccination jab has to be taken one month apart. so, if you are giving your baby pnuemococcal jab, make sure this is to be taken on the same day with your compulsory 5 in 1 or 6 in 1 jab...

    my poor boy has to take his 6 in 1 jab and pneumococcal jab, together with Rota on the very SAME day... not sure whether he can take it or not..

    yappyen New Member

    Sonic,

    my boy sees Dr Lee and Dr Lily Lie at the My Family Clinic @Rivervale Mall - they have a package for the vaccination jabs. And they are open on Sundays too. Much cheaper (GP rates) than Kids Clinic and the medication is the same as pediatrician.

    Kanike: my boy had his chicken pox jab when he was 2.5 to 3 years old. Needs two jabs (1 dose split into 2 jabs), cos one dosage is too much. My brother had chicken pox last year and we did not have to worry that my son would contract it.
     
  42. sonic

    sonic Member

    jess,

    is this family clinic just next to The Kids Clinic? i think i saw that too, but i thought since my boy has been seeing Dr Allyson since he's young baby, better stick to Dr Allyson lor..

    i read an article about chicken pox, u can actually let your babies to have it when they are as young as 1.5yrs old..

    I din not have a good impression of M* Family Clini* at River*ale M*ll as I went to see Dr. Lie with some of common itchy skin problem and she says I got scabbies and started giving me lotion named "anti-kutu" shampoo, even ask me to apply and leave on my skin don't shower off which I believe that medication is a shampoo, how could I leave it on! Got very upset and went to see a specialist and in the end, the specialist says no way a Dr. could diagnose it as scabbies cos it just normal sensitive skin and gave jab and the prob went away.

    Not only that, there was another instance with Dr. Lee that I brought along my niece when she had a cut near her eye and he said he cannot do anything cos it's too near the eye, cannot apply "glue" or do stitch. In the end he suggest my niece to see plastic surgeon and do a plastic surgery! Got quite pissed off and in the end brought her to KK and they just gave some cream to apply and the cut recovered well and good! Thus, I will never ever step into this clinic again.

    Hi Mummies,

    Recently just moved back to stay with my mum@punggol.
    My 11mth++ son who has running nose since CNY eve, visited GP @ my house downstair and pd @ mount E twice each..but no still improvement..finally 20th mar 2007, i tried out Dr Allyson Tan @Rivermall kids clinic after reading this thread. The waiting time is slightly more longer but the fees is much more cheaper than mount e. The result is also visible after 7days continuing of medicine, now no more running nose... but 31st mar 2007 will still go back for a review to double confirm.

    Ai yoh, Kids Clinic is forever PACKED. I used to go and visit Dr. Tan, the lady doc who looks more unfriendly BUT after attending to her, she is the better and more detailed doc!

    But due to the long queue, I changed PD and now son is under TMC(PD Centre). She is nice and friendly too.

    Daily Medical at 159 Hougang St 11, tel: 62843218.. Though not PD but the hb and wife Doc are very very nice and patient Docs with 5 children..

    They do not prescribe anti-biotic unnecessarily unlike many PD or GP out there.. They will gradually increase the "strength" of the medicine as they believe that we all have our natural immune system to fight.. I totally agree with this concept..

    They are our family's Docs.. Since my kids (3yo & 5yo now) are bb, they are well taken care of by them..

    Some came all the way from TPY or even Jurong East to have their children taken care by Doc Gabriel and Dr Monica.. [​IMG]

    Hi Hashisan,

    They're always fully booked,but what you can do is call them either in the early morning or before 7pm when they re-open to ask whether can put your kids'name on the list and they will call you in advance.Sometimes I will ask my hubby to go there to reg first then they will give us a call when almost our turn so tat I need not let my sick child go there to wait.

    Thanks for the link meja. I'm now deciding which one to go to for my girl's really bad cough. We've been to two doctors already and think need a PD this time. WE tried to go to the Kid's Clinic but was told it'd be a 3-4 hr wait and we can't be put on the waiting list unless we show up in person and since it's not near our place it's quite inconvenient.

    My new born was checked by Anthony Chee at Mt A and the charges was about $280 for 2 days (routine checks only) excluding hosiptal charges. Shouldn't defer much if he's to go to TMC I think.

    Any yes, he's a good PD, and am still visiting him for baby's jabs etc..
