    Wondering if anyone has experiences with Dr Chan Kok Hon from Glen E. Please share, I'm considering him to be my gynae. Thanks

    Hi chox, I'm using him as my gynae. Personally, I find him very patient and professional. Actually, I prefer him to my prev gynae cos I find his explanation better. He knows how to put medical terms into layman terms and he makes sure I understand what he explained. In fact, quite a few of my col are using him. [​IMG]

    [​IMG] for Dr Chan, he is one of the nicest doctor I have ever met in my life, very patient and assuring. I have been going to him for more than 3 years, my cousin and friends goes to him too. Good choice when you choose him. [​IMG]

    hello ladies [​IMG]

    Thanks for the reassurance. He's my mom's gynae and I'm just wondering if I should stick with him. I've heard horror stories about gynaes who make patients wait very long or who schedule C sections to suit their daytimers.

    Great to know that he's good [​IMG]

    Behappyk, how were his charges like for your case ? Maybe you or giggler can share...*apologies for being probe-y"

    Love the pix Seraphim ! [​IMG]

    Hi chox, I signed up package with him when I was 4mth preggie also. I think the package costs $770 and not $700 leh. I like the 3D scan pix of bb, can really see bb unlike those normal scan.

    hi wendypooh and giggler

    I'm having my checkup with Dr Chan this coming Monday too. Mine in the afternoon. But i guess giggler is in the morning right. How about you wendypooh?


    Does anyone know the meaning of induced?
    Cos Dr Chan said if I dun give birth by next week, they will have to induced me. I was so nervous i forgot to ask him what is it....
  20. giggler

    giggler Active Member

    Hi Sweet, so you are not in Sin now. You went overseas with hubby for work?

    Hi Mel, my appt with Dr Chan in the morning. I not too sure abt induced also leh. I think it's to make you give birth asap. Why not you check at the other thread with those experienced mummies? You must be excited now. Hope you have a smooth delivery next week.
  21. sweets

    sweets New Member

    hey Mel,
    Induce is "to bring about birth, start the birthing process" - think they insert a pill in to get the cervix ready for dilation etc.

    Giggler, yes, I am not in SG [​IMG]

    I'm back from my medical check up by Dr Chan from Geneagles. I can say he is super nice guy and make us feel easy. Waiting time is fast oso.
    Well sad to say After scaning Found a very small fibroid at outside the ovaries, but he say is ok and common among ladies. No medicine or other thing require, not a problem. Other than tat all other area is fine and can conceive anytime. "Heng"... so happy to know but pap smear and culture test can only be know next week. Keeping my finger cross on tat.
    But I strongly recomend those who want check up can conside him. He is very patient and cheerful. I go with my sis and she too think he is nice. My sis use to have check by KK hospital but she have since change to Dr Chan

    i called up his clinic this morn. was told by the nurse to go preferably betw CD10 to CD12 (before ovulation) so that he can scan the follicle. she did ask if i hv regular menses and whether i did ovulate every mth. she suggested i cld try to use ovulation kit. i didn't make appt cos i'll be out of the c'try during the said period. told the nurse i'll call back for my next cycle. sigh...got to wait one more mth.

  38. giggler

    giggler Active Member

    Hi wendypooh, I just got virginal infection last few months also. Dr Chan gave me some anti-biotics then ok liao. But I not sure if it'll affect your chance of TTC lah. I only know that infection is nothing serious.
  39. wendypooh

    wendypooh New Member

    hi sweet, giggler

    Dr Chan is on leave till Monday. The nurse ask me to go down take medicine on SAt me still hesiating whether to go and take. dun know it it due to recently i take very little water.
    did he mention tat infection is nothing serious? tat why the nurse told me too . do u feel itch at the virgianl area? i dun feel itch except after mense. i really very worried and dun know to go or not as the pap smear result not out yet. after the medicine did he still scan again?
  40. wendypooh

    wendypooh New Member

    hi giggler,

    did Dr Chan ask u to take folic acid b4 u pregnant? I try asking him whether can take folic acid as per the thread TTC gal recomend, he told me not necessary to take those are usually taken by Eurasia ppl. So now I dun know want to take or not? Can advise me?
  41. giggler

    giggler Active Member

    Hi wendypooh, I only see Dr Chan after preggie. But I think that's his style. When I asked him abt fish oil supplements, he said there's no need to take too much supplements also.
  42. sweets

    sweets New Member

    hey wendypooh,
    maybe you should also try to take more water and my mom told me to take Cranberry juice to avoid infections down south.

    Giggler, just a query since u are seeing him while preggie, is Dr C pro-breast-feeding ?
  43. wendypooh

    wendypooh New Member

    hi giggler,
    tink dr chan like his patient to take supplement. he is not the kind of doc tat will ask u to but this and tat or check or tink tat is not necessary. any idea is his medieine expensive. do u need to re-scan after taking the infection medicine, i hate the scanning part dun feel comforatble. any idea whether he will give MC for checkup?

    sweet,
    thank for your advise. my sis told me to eat cranberry too, she have urine infection b4 and doc recommenf cranberries, heard the berries is very good in helping infection. i will go and buy to try.
  44. sweets

    sweets New Member

    hey wendypooh,
    you can just try cranberry juice off the shelf from ntuc or cold storage...fresh cranberries may be a bit expensive and hard to come by [​IMG]

    hi all,

    Incidentally, my hubby's doctor fren (a GP) also recommended Dr Chan fm Glen E, so I came to the forum to check out if there is any info on him. Great to hear the positive feedback!

    The only thing is that I've a preference to deliver at Mt Alvernia. Does anyone know if Dr Chan delivers at Mt A ?

    thanks!
  47. wendypooh

    wendypooh New Member

    hi soprano73
    are u pregnant now?
    why u prefer Mt Alvernia? Gleneagle is oso quite good.
    u can go ahead to see Dr Chan, he is a very nice doc
  48. sweets

    sweets New Member

    Hey all [​IMG]
    Happy easter to all of you too! Its wierd not going to church on good friday [​IMG] cos there is no service nor PH over here....

    Wendypooh, you are more than welcome! HOpe the infection clears up soon!

    Soprano, since Dr C seems out of office, the best thing would probably to just call the office and ask his nurse ? [​IMG] Guess with his office at Glen E, its more convienient for him to pop in and out for checks and follow ups. Heard MT A is really good too...never been in there for a long time though [​IMG] Heard +ve comments from frens!

    Hi sweets, I not sure if Dr Chan pro-breastfeeding or not leh. So far, we have not touch on this issue yet.

    Hi wendypooh, there's no need to go for vaginal scan after I took the anti-biotics. He's quite generous with mc for my case.

    Hi soprano, I think Dr Chan only delivers at GlenE.
  52. wendypooh

    wendypooh New Member

    hi giggler,
    wat medicine he gave u? last sat i went down to collect. to my horror only 2 kind of medicine, 4 pill for oral 2 time only 1 bullet for insertion into virginal tat all nothing else.
    u mean he can give MC for checkup?
  53. giggler

    giggler Active Member

    Hi wendypooh, he only gave me one type of anti-biotics to be taken 3 times a day, that's it. Ya, normally he'll give me mc if I ask for it.
  54. wendypooh

    wendypooh New Member

    hi giggler,
    how long u time tat medicine?
    he give me oral only for a day tat all.
    how to know if we are ok alry?
  55. soprano73

    soprano73 Guest

    Hello,

    thanks for your response. Oh, I called Dr Chan's clinic last Sat and found out that I have to book one mth in advance if I want a Sat appmt! I made a booking anyway. But I also found out that his charges are quite high... the nurse told me his consultation fees range fm S$86 to S$126 excluding tests. The current gynae I am seeing (only saw her once lah) charges $70 for first time and then $40 subsequently.

    Yeah, I am 8 weeks preggie... have only seen gynae once and as I was looking for a female gynae at Mt A, I just went to one there. A fren said she is ok. Guess I am just a bit apprehensive as this is the first time, and I have heard horror stories of frens' experiences with some gynaes. So just thot of getting a "good" recommedation and then heard of this Dr Chan from hubby's doctor fren. Dunno whether it will make a difference or worth the trouble to change or not...

    confused...
  56. giggler

    giggler Active Member

    Hi wendypooh, for me the spotting stopped so I assumed I ok liao. But I still continue with antibiotic as we need to finish the whole course.

    Hi soprano, you can just see him and if you don't like then you go back to your prev gynae lah. That's what I did the other time. Before seeing Dr Chan, I was seeing another female gynae at Mt E who is quite good also. But after seeing Dr Chan, I decided to stick with him.

    ran_mel New Member

    hi everyone i'm back!

    wow, really mus agree Dr Chan charges very high. And giving birth in Glen E is not cheap too. My total hosiptal bill plus his fee cost almost $5000. My hubby so shocked when he paid the bill..LOL[​IMG]

    My baby gal so cute and kaypo, want to open her eyes the moment she was born. Struggling to keep both her eyes open looking here and there even though the light is too strong for her. [​IMG]

    But over all the stay in Glen E was good and Dr
    Chan is very professional. Will stick to him if I getting my 2nd baby.[​IMG]

    I also wonder if he can delivery at other hospital too. Can save on hospital fee...
  58. giggler

    giggler Active Member

    Hi Mel, how come your bill so ex? But I'm glad to hear that you're satisfied with Dr Chan's service. I'll be going thru it myself in another 1-2 mths' time.
  59. sweets

    sweets New Member

    Hey Mel,
    Congrats! Any baby pix to share ?? and do share your birth story also leh!!! *giggles*

    The total bill of $5k is in cash ? hence post medisave deductions? or pre ?

    Glad to hear that Dr C is very pro [​IMG] Maybe you can shed light on if he is a pro-bf doc as well.

    Giggler, your EDD so fast! wow...excited not?
