    Can try Dr Chua Yang.

    You can try Dr Adelina Wong from TMC.
    She was my gynae and I find her to be a good choice as a gynae for first time Mums. Reason is because she's extremely patient in attending to my queries, very reassuring for first time Mothers. Be prepared for long queue though.

    I am with Dr WK Tan, she's old for sure but that equates to experience and she's a very modern gynae

    lalafate New Member

    I heard that Dr WK Tan is very serious type but very experience and steady Dr. Maybe I should choose her. It is true that waiting time to see her is really very long?

    Anybody got reviews on Dr Caroline Khi from TMC?
     
  10. witchz

    witchz New Member

    yea she's the no nonsense kind of gynae. her waiting time can be quite long if she needs to do delivery. Just a note, she only delivers in TMC

    lalafate New Member

    Ok with TMC.. I compared the prices for private hospital it seem that TMC is more cheaper compared to Mt E, Mt A, Glen E.......
    I'am like choosing the hospital and then decide a good gynae from that hospital. Dont Know if im doing the right thing haha
    It is your first time with WK Tan?

    Recommend Dr Dolly Wee from Mount Elizabeth. Very experienced and patient, and has a sense of homour.

    She delivers at Mount Alvernia as well.

    emolambfamily New Member

    By package you mean prenatal? When we went with Dr Dolly Wee last year, we took a consultation package that cost around 1k. Not sure what are the latest rates now.

    I also recommend Dr Chua Yang from Mt A, but then you may have to call to enquire on the package price. I am not sure what is the price now as I last delivered Aug 2014.

    Hi all mummies to be! :)

    I am a first time preggo here :p .. really unsure of which gynae to chose and what is the avg market rate for packages and delivery fee. I am firm to have delivery in Mt A and a female gynae though... So far the only gynae I know of who delivery at Mt A are Dr. Lim Yuin Wen & Dr. Esther Ng.

    Would really really appreciate any kind mummies to be can offer your advice?

    Thank you so much in advance! ;)

    I'm with Dr Esther Ng. She delivered my #1 and I'm going back to her for #2. She said that she do not take in as much delivery as she used to so now the waiting time is pretty short (even on Sat) as compare to my #1. I feel that she is pretty motherly and she doesn't rush during the consultation. But do note that she charges is on the high side.

    Hi, you can try my gynae.. Dr Eunice Chua from TLC (clinic based in tmc)... Very nice and patient lady... She cared for me during my polyps removal in 2013 and 2 miscarriages ( 2013 & 2015) before finally conceiving my current (Edd mid Jan)... She is also the gynae for my 2 cousins (elder cousins had 3 kids by her and 1 younger one just deliver in apr 2016)... She saved my younger cousin with her experience.. So I would highly recommend her.. :)

    Me and my 2 younger brothers were delivered by Dr WK Tan. I am 30 this year. And now she will be delivering my baby ☺

    Did Dr WK Tan offering any package?

    I was under Adelina Wong. She is good, patient and soft spoken. Her stitches skill is good, my scar just one fine line.
    Just that she is not offering any package and most of gynae from TMC also not offering anymore.

    Seems like her package quite reasonable. Her package starts from week 20 or anytime once confirmed booking?

    How about doctor fee?
     
  28. Iamsaintly

    Iamsaintly New Member

    I believe it starts once you have decided to take up her package. I will be going down for my 2nd appointment next week to make the first deposit (will be 12 weeks by then).

    Tried Calling Dr Adelina Wong's Clinic but no response the whole of today.
    Wanted to check her package and doctor's fees before deciding on which gynae to choose.
    I have called Dr Claudine Tan and Dr Geraldine Tan so I was hoping to compare with Adeline Wong's package.
    I was highly recommended to Dr Goh Shen li but she practices in Mount A only :(
    Comparing TMC to Mount A delivery packages, from my calculation it's almost about 2k difference therefore TMC is currently my first choice.

    Anyone can advise Adeline's package?

    Hi do you have Dr Geraldine's package breakdown? Will you mind to share. :)
     
  32. Idayu Sani

    Idayu Sani New Member

    Hi Oceantear,

    Sure. I don't mind.
    Here goes.

    Antenatal package starts from week 13 onwards. $1400 before GST with approximate 10 visits or until you give birth. Excluding medications like folic acids and etc, detailed scanning, blood test and any other test required. So basically the antenatal package is just for consultation, basic scan and routine checks of your height, weight, blood pressure and urine. Her delivery fees is from $1600-$2000 for normal and $2600-3000 for c-sect.

    Hope that helps :)

    Im with Dr. Lim Yuin Wen at Mt A.
    http://www.wenlimclinic.com/profile.htm

    I'm seeing her for my second pregnancy. Many of my friends are with her and we all find her experienced and steady.
    She is very professional and plays safe in her decisions.
    She did a C-sec for me and when she held my hand in the operating theatre, I was filled with assurance and know that I'm in good hands.

    Waiting time is reasonable, usually less than 30 mins on a weekday. She's straightforward and doesn't chit chat much with you, not to mention your husband. So, manage your expectations. But you're assured of nothing less than professionalism from her.
    Staff are friendly and I'm comfortable asking questions.

    I would say go pay her a visit once and experience yourself!
    Hope this helps!

    I'm with Dr Adelina Wong. She is very assuring and will answer all your worries and doubt. Never feel any rush and she'll explains details with you. The down side is no package.

    Dr Chan Weng Buen Cathryn - Does delivery at both Mount Alvernia and Mount E Novena. She delivered both my girls. Always long queue at her clinic. A very steady gynae who is patient and caring. :) In my latest delivery (10 days back), she managed to retrieve my separated placenta which was a total relief.
