    Hi, im new here, first time mummie as well.
    Edd ard 10th Aug.
    Jus went for my first Gynae visit on 27/1.
    Visited Dr Adrian at Sengkang Mrt.
    My two friends recommended him, a neighbour visiting him as well.

    His Evening clinic starts 5.30pm.
    Patients was waiting for queue# As early as 4pm. He happens to reach clinic early on that day. I was the 5th one in the queue.
    Almost every patient consultation lasted not more then 5 minutes.

    Did ultrascan, asked to go for oscar scan, and see him next month. Bill amt to $280.

    If i were to take His package is $736+-
    Not sure to continue with him or change a Gynae. As first time mum, im abit worried.
    Esply when he is packed with patients.

    Pls kindly share your views.
    Thanks

    He is my gynae for my first child cause his clinic at CCK near my house.
    If you don't mind that he is the "chop chop " type , you can consider.
    Cause he has a lot of patients and every consultation is very fast though sometimes i waited for 1 to 2 hrs to see him.
    Sometime really no time to ask him question, so i always google about my
    pregnancy questions.
    I went back to Dr Adrain cause my husband feels that is clinic is near and he is very skilled and experienced.
    This my second pregnancy Edd June 2017.
    I took his package that is 688 exclude gst.
    3th month blood test cost $80
    detail scan 5th mth cost $494.
    (SBI thomson card discount -$24.30)
    Scan & blood test taken at Novena Medical Centre

    Good day to all im newbie to this forum and
    we are under Dr. Adrian at Sengkang Due date on June

    delivery cost
    1900 + GST (normal)
    3000 + GST (CS)

    As a first timer, we are very upset with his style...but that's him that's his style its
    up to you if u can accept it or not...We don't know him also that's why we keep on reading
    some of his reviews old and new one. He has so many Very Good Reviews.

    He talk and work so fast...Very straight forward person
    No question? No answer also.
    You cannot expect special treatment from him.. And be thankful if you reach 5 mins per
    appointment hahaha...

    Expect this words from him every time you meet him

    Baby heart beating, Baby arms, Baby legs
    Baby OK
    All OK
    All can
    Don't worry hahaha
    After that then......done.... then get out of the room and talk to the staff at the counter hahaha

    Funny thing also never explain the results of Blood test
    and the detailed anomaly scan....just say all normal ( we are expecting to explain to us the result in detail but he just say ALL NORMAL ) hahha

    So from his style, we need to read, research and study more resources about pregnancy (tnx for google and some forums like this) coz you cannot expect anything from him...its like all is template to him.

    As a mother to be...help your self to know more about your pregnancy
    download those important app like baby center to be your friendly online OB hahaha

    I cannot say he is Highly recommended or not...It depends upon the couple, but for us after our detailed scan
    and the baby is normal we are OK....we are waiting for the day for our baby to come...And we still
    trust Dr. Adrian until the delivery day. So looking forward for that day. I hope by writing this can help you guys.

    I went to see Dr Woodworth for my PCOS and yes each consultation is 3mins. we timed him before and really every patient is 3min. Thats his style, talk very fast, everything also chop chop. i m amazed how he can do scans/take blood all within 3 mins.

    I prefer a doctor with TLC so yea. haha

    I see Dr Adrian Woodworth at CCK clinic as well upon recommendation of a friend who has 2 kids delivered by him.
    He is indeed very fast with his consultation. 2-3 mins done. 5 mins if you have any questions. Prepare your questions before you go in.
    For those considering Dr Adrian Woodworth, I would suggest seeing him once to 'experiment' with his style before deciding.
    I am fine with his style as I do not have to wait too long to see him despite the Q and it is only when things are turning out fine which allows him to do a fast diagnosis.

    Hi, I am a first time mummy and my gynae is also dr Adrian woodsworth. Just wonder where do you give birth? Mount A or Thomson. I have went to the tour for both hospital but yet to decide. Trying to find out more before deciding.

    kat.chan New Member

    Cfmed with his nurse at counter
    He delivers at TMC N Mt A
    Pricing for both are almost the same
    TMC are specially for deliveries.
    Mt A are like a general hospital
    Parking wise MT A easier to park

    Hi Serine,

    i am new and first time mummy to be. went for check up last weekend at amk area. was thinking whether should change to dr Adrian.

    Do you mind to tell more abt his package? How long is the waiting time for CCK clinic? Do you hv something more to share abt dr?

    thanks.
     
  18. serine

    serine Member

    Hi Emily,
    I signed the package with Dr Adrain because his clinic was near for me . Convenience & travel distance is very important for me . Waiting time can range from 30mins - 2 hrs.

    When I am down with flu , I will visit him as I feel that the medicine he give is more "safe" compare to GP & i only need to pay for the medication not consultation.

    He is ok but when I was a first time mum , I find that he did not give me enough time to ask questions & clarify all the doubts in me. Many times, he is just too fast for me .
    So it depends on your expectation.

    Hi Serine, i would like to know the visitation for prenatal packages with Dr. adrian is until the last day of your deliver due? Do we need pay in shot fo the prenatal package 688 and deliver cost 1900 ?

    My EDD is about mid May 2017.
    Deliver at TMC.
    Dr Adrian Woodworth didn't collect the delivery fee. I think it will be done at TMC.
    He will give you a hospital admission letter.

    I heard from my friend that patients under him get a free upgrade to 2 bedder from 4 bedder.

    How accurate is this info? The staff told me it will be arranged by TMC subjected to availability.

    Hi Serine

    I just went to random gynae and found dr adrian. Indeed he is very fast but i read there are so many good reviews about him.

    Do you mind tell me abit more? The blood test at 3th mth is for checking down sydrome? The blood test n detailed scan will be at Novena at the same day?

    Overall it is we will only have 1 blood test? =P needles phobia so i have to be prepared.
    Thanks in advance !

    Wan Ting New Member

    Hi jaces, I have delivered by Dr Adrian last year April. The blood test is for checking down syndrome at 3th month. Detail scan at 5th month. At novena square 2, there is a TMC scanning clinic there. From what I remember, I only did 1 blood test.

    What I like about Dr Adrian is his delivery skill, I deliver via vigina discharge, I can walk in the hospital the next day and no need any pain killer
     
  23. Jaces

    Jaces Member

    Hi wan ting . Thanks for your information. Are you having ur baby no. 2 now?

    Can i check with you the blood test needles it is very thin kind too?

    Anyway $1900+ is by normal delivery. But i forgot to ask about the room type. Do u rmb it is for 4 or 2 bed? If want single bedder ... u know roughly how much ?

    U delivered at TMC or MA?
     
  24. Wan Ting

    Wan Ting New Member

    Hi jaces, I am not expecting now =) the needle I remember is quite thin. And need to draw 3 tubes.

    Yes. 1900+ is for virginal delivery. I deliver at TMC, 1 bedded with hubby staying over. With epidural and baby is vacuum out. Total bill 9.2k, after medisave, cash 5.2k. 2 nights stay
     
  25. Jaces

    Jaces Member

    Thanks for the information. The 1900+ virginal delivery include the stay already?

    Baby is vacuum out if not enough energy to push? Thanks for ur reply ! :)

    Planning no. 2 now ? =D
     
  26. Wan Ting

    Wan Ting New Member

    Hi. The 1900+ is doctor fee only. Hospital stay, delivery ward cost separately.

    Because I am under epidural, no feeling to push, and not enough strength, so doctor have to help me. Once he use vacuum, 1 push baby is out.

    Haha. Yup. Now trying got #2, since my boy just turn 1.

    Delivered on 12 May by natural with epidural and laughing gas.
    Gynae: Dr Adrian Woodworth
    Stayed in 2 bedder (4 bedder free upgrade to 2 bedder) Privilege of Dr Adrian Woodworth patient (subjected to availability)
    There are 3 bills:
    1) Mother
    2) Hospital
    3) Child

    *Check in only after 11pm so that you do not incur an extra day stay. For example if you check in 10pm on Thursday , you will be charged a day stay on Thursday.
    *You do not have to bring anything for baby. All is provided and charged under the bill
    *I use cordlife hospital bag checklist for packing.
    I found the following unnnecessary:
    1) Toiletries (I didn't shower, toothbrush and toothpaste are provided)
    2) Night gown/ pajamas (Just wear the hospital one, save yourself the hassle to wash stains)
    3) Breast pump. (I didn't have much breastmilk during my stay. I only latch on when the baby is brought to me for feeding)

    Hi.
    I was charged another 2.4k to book Dr Adrian but I am not sure because the cost for natural birth is $1.9k + gst.

    We see Dr Adrian at CCK and their service staffs sucks big time. All time rude and as if we owed them a living.

    I just given birth in jun by Dr Adrian. The staffs at sengkang r gd. And they r more organised as compared to cck outlet.
     
  36. IreneTan7879

    IreneTan7879 New Member

    Yes I heard from another patient during our visit at cck. Also gave good comments to the staffs at Sengkang.

    Pretty unjust that his employees in cck does not have the professionalism in service line.

    Super unfriendly and gives a we owed them a living attitude

  39. izzymon

    izzymon Member

    Yes men. I went once, will never want to visit cck again. They r v unorganized. I waited for 2hrs. This only happens at sengkang if there r alot of patients. Sengkang staff really efficient. Thumbs up. I called cck once to check on some medication when sengkang outlet is closed for the day. Their reply is very rude, they told me cck n sk work differently since i m a patient of SK, I should call SK. Lol.. I tot they r all under Thomson medical. We r all given the same medication. They r not helpful at all. I went to doc wong clinic when Dr Adrian is away, his staff r also very rude. If I were to give birth again, I will definitely go back to Dr Adrian ~ sk outlet.

    The detail scan was taken in Novena medical centre , blood test was taken by a nurse , i didn't experience any pain as she was very skillful. The cost for 3 & 5 th month scan was around $500 which I find rather expensive as my friend only spent $200.

    Hi advise.. I want to check Dr Adrian is pro natural VD or pro c-sec? I heard that he goes for c-sec frequently. We prefer to go for VD and we are a little worry about the comments him about c-sec..

    I was delivered by dr adrian end may. He is chop chop really so if u want a very detailed gynae, he's not. However my hb and I actually prefers gynae of less words. Just tell us that everything is ok to assure us is gd enough :) so it really depends on ur comfort level .

    I was delivered via normal delivery too (not c sect) and I was really pleased with mount a Nurses and him helping me to deliver. They really give their best to help deliver my baby and was really encouraging throughout . I was about to give up and asked for vacuum however with the team helping me push down the baby and dr adrian standing by to pull the bb out , I am thankful I didn't have to spend more if I were to use vacuum.

    His stitching was good too . Though I felt pain the day after giving birth, generally I was feeling ok the 2nd day . In fact I could walk on the first day already.

    I would likely go to him again for the next delivery.

    Smooth delivery to all mommies out there :)
