I saw Dr Devendra for my pregnancy. He's very patient and reassuring. He's the labour ward consultant too and has a very good relationship with the midwives. the midwives have alot of respect for him and vice versa. that's very important esp when the midwives monitor labouring women.
Hi Andrea, you may want to consider Dr Tan Hak Koon. I used to work in SGH, and a lot of staff go to him for pregnancies as he specialises in fetal maternal medicine and high risk pregnancies. He's not my gynae but I've heard good feedback on him that he's detailed and caring.
My gynea was Dr Chua Hong Liang fr SGH. Through my personal experience, he is the kind that will give advice and suggestions if you have concerns and tell you all pros and cons about certain procedures, treatments, technologies etc. He is willing to partner with you in your birth plan so long it does not pose risk to the mummy and baby. He is careful and not a risk taker.
I had Dr Chua Hong Liang as my gynae to deliver my 1st child and I'm seeing him again for my 2nd one due in Jun. He is fantastic. Very patient. Answers watever queries u have in detail. Oso has a scanner in his room. When he delivered my 1st, he was very skillful. You know you are in gd hands. I strongly recommend him.
She conducts chkups in SGH's O&G clinic. When I was seeing her in 2005, she did not do ultrasound scan for each visit. The first visit costs around $80 or so (but pls note this was back in 2005) and subsequent visit shd be around $55. All rates excludes scans and GST. If there's any scan required, she sent me to the ultrasound room and the scan would be performed by the sonographer.
This was a few years back, not sure if things hv changed now. My bill in 1 bedder was about $3k+, mine was a normal delivery with epidural.
I delivered in 2006 by Dr Chua Hong Liang. First consultation about 80+, subsequent about $45.00 including ultrasound (plus pic) on every visit. My first delivery was normal with just laughing gas no forcep no vacume and was staying at one bedded room. Total delivery cost (exlude consults) worked out about $2.1K (before medisave) + S$350 for baby. I stayed 3 days 2 nite.
Dr Chua is also a very good doctor. I remember sharing with him my birthplan and we had lengthy discussion on what are acceptable to his practice and to the hospital's policy and how to come to a preffered plan by both sides.
Hi I planning to get pregnant this yr, however I have irregular periods, so m thinking of consulting with gynae at sgh for help... Noticed all the threads above are dated back in 2009, so any gd gynae to recommend at sgh?
hi guys...how u go about making appointment with the doctor in SGH? not like private doctor in private clinic which u can just call n make appt. I'm abit confused. i'm referred to Dr Tan Hak Koon from SGH but I dont know how to make appt with him. I'm 5 weeks preggy. Wanna make first checkup appt.
Also whats the private ward in SGH like? Do they have visitor restrictions like normal ward? Normal wards got visitor restrictions to 4 visitors...i dont want such inconvenience leh.
We also conduct Ward Tour. Tours are available from Monday to Friday at 11.30am and 3pm. To sign up for Labour Ward tour, call us at (65) 63265920 or find us on facebook (http://www.facebook.com/WAKatSGH).
The usual 4 visitors restriction (infection control measures) still applies, however, if there are more visitors, you may request through our nurses.
Chua Hong Liang was very rude and aggressive, he won't even listen your concerns. I was so shocked and disappointed to see that doctor can be that rude, no human quality at all. Will never see such insecure creature again.
