Hello all,

I am a ftm whom just delivered at mount e Novena with Dr Khoo Chong Kiat 2 weeks ago.

I followed him from kkh to his private practice as I wanted someone very experienced and most importantly, both my husband and I like him even though he can sound quite beng sometimes. Haha

As someone who is very anxious by nature, one of the perks of being Dr CK Khoo’s patients is that he would give you his personal contact and you can text him any query (worry) you have at anytime and he would reply you promptly.
He would patiently reply any query you may have and would not rush through the consultation even at KKH when he was one of the busiest gynae there.
(According to my Friend who works in the medical equipment industry told me that he is one of the most hardworking Doctors at kkh).

However I was not only impressed by the above.

I had a Long and difficult labour and so, I had an assisted natural delivery with kiwi vacuum. My baby did not cry when he was out. I knew something was wrong as the medical team and Dr Khoo did not pass the baby for me skin to skin after they cleaned him. All I saw was Dr Khoo was gently hitting the baby’s limbs to make him cry and the medical team was doing their to resuscitate my baby. Fortunately, baby did cry at 2 min but was not loud enough because of the lack of oxygen and he was sent to nicu before my assigned pd arrived.
Dr Khoo made sure that my baby was okay before delivering my placenta and stitching me up.

I subsequently learnt that Dr Khoo was trained in baby care whilst he was in kkh and thank god, he was there when my baby needed him at birth. He and the midwives worked together to save my baby at birth.
I would never have imagined that I would encountered such a situation and realised that having an experienced and skilful gynae is indeed very critical when you need it. It’s like buying an insurance cover. You only find it useful when you need it.

The Nurses at NICU also commented that dr Khoo cares truly for my baby and visited him every day. I understand from the Nurses that not many Doctors are like him who are passionate about their job.
In this instance, he visited both my baby and I Everyday during our stay at mount e Novena. He also kept in contact with the pd and assured me that my baby is fine.

I understand that he switches to private practice so he could dedicate more time to his patients as he was too busy in kkh. Hence I would highly recommend doctor Khoo based on my personal experience with him. His prices are also affordable for a private practice doctor.

What more could you ask for from an experienced and passionate doctor!

P.S. I was not given any discount on my consultations for writing this. I wanted to write this review purely because my baby is here with me now.

Do let me know if you have any questions!

Hi,

I recently gave birth but I didn’t follow Dr Khoo. I stayed with his wife at kkh instead. His wife is as dedicated as he is. However i’ve only wished that I follow him instead but not cause the wife wasn’t good, KKH is the worst hospital to Deliver your baby. If I am to be bless with another child, I’ll definitely look for Dr Khoo at Mt E. Good luck to those choosing Dr Khoo. Best gynae!

Hi Kjt1,

Im speaking based on my experience only. It does not mean that kkh is a horrible choice for everyone.

My experience with KKH during my entire pregnancy has been a rollercoaster. From the start of booking an appointment with their staff via hotline to getting admitted twice due to bleeding, to delivering my firstborn.

On call doctors are the worst, they will guilt tripped you into listening to their decision. One on call doc even told me that my chances of giving birth naturally is low & that i should just schedule a csect due to low placenta. (My private gynae wasn’t there cause when I was admitted, i chose the B ward hence gynae doesn’t have to be present) I insisted they still schedule me one last ultrasound (hello, i was the one paying! Not using their money!) during my last checkup and they reluctantly agreed. Thankfully, U/S showed my placenta is way up from my cervix, allowing me to give birth naturally- imagine if I were to listen to his advice? I would have given birth via csect even when I didn’t need to! More money to KKH perhaps!

Anyway, there were alot more issues I experienced after delivery. I was a private patient however the service I received were bad from the nurses in charge of that ward. My husband & I weren’t oriented properly. We weren’t aware there were feedback form and KKH newborn set to be collected. We scheduled a lactation consultant to come but they never did. Nurses were reluctant in helping me to breastfeed. One Indian nation nurse even told me I’ve got no milk. To think back, it was really a traumatic experience delivering and being warded in KK. I even requested a pump cause i was so sore from breastfeeding and the nurse just wheeled in the pump without educating me on how to use it. So i gave up using it as well. Because of all these bad experience, my breastfeeding journey never really took off.

Btw, they dont have a nursery, thats what the nurse told me. They will make u room with the baby, even if your tired from giving birth and needed a rest.


A lot more cocked up issues but too tired to even think about it.

But like i said, this is my experience. Others might have it good. Good luck

Hello!

As mine is vacuum delivery, the doctor's fee is slightly higher and the medisave deduction is also higher for assisted delivery.
My total bill is about SGD9.8k before medisave. After Medisave, cash is SGD6k plus.

I understand that he charges $2288 for normal vaginal delivery.
He also came out with package price for consultation from week 16 onwards (i graduated before he came out with the price list).
Hence you may call his clinic for more details - informing his nurses that you are his ex-patient.

The rest of the charges very much dependable on the hospital consumables and the time you spent in the delivery ward.
I only made pre booking at Mount E novena but i didnt make any deposit payment.

hope this helps! :)

Congrats on your pregnancy!

Mount e novena is all single bedded.. he delivers at TMC and Mount A too.
you may call his clinic for consultation fees cos i paid the same price as what I would have paid in kkh as I followed him in February (before he came out with revised charges which may be more economical)

perhaps you should give the clinic a call and see what they say :)

take care!

Haha, i have not followed up since Kk. Bt i am visiting him. For me he has been very generous. He almost gave me the 60days. May be also due to covid period from feb to april. But for my sister who is with raffles, they sre very strict with HL. They only give when you MC finishes. So compared to her, i am very blessed with HL :)
