Hi, I would like to recommend my gynae (Dr.Tan Kai Lit) He delivered 3 out of 4 of my children (3rd baby was delivered in KKH with another gynae as Dr Tan moved to Thomson and we decided to engage Dr Tan and therefore went to Thompson instead.)
Doctor Tan is someone who tries his best to help with the requests we make and easy to talk to. He emits a positive aura and assures that you are in safe hands. Never did we have to worry about delivery.He's full of energy, super alert. Thank you for playing a major role in our journey of having 4 kids. Even though we may not have number 5, but we'll be sure to let our friends know who to look for when they plan to start their own family. Careful, Skillful and Experienced doctor

Hi, I would also like to add my experience with Dr. Tan Kai Lit. As a First Time Mum (FTM), I began my pregnancy journey when I suspected I was pregnant at around Week 4 after completing 21km. Was feeling tired all the time even though I had napped and woke up around noon time during the weekends.

I came across Dr. Tan's name online and saw people recommending him for his stitching skills. To me, male or female gynae doesn't matter; as long as the job is done properly and baby is healthy. Also, his clinic was at a more centralized location (Toa Payoh) which was relatively accessible regardless via car or public transport.

First visit review:
Greeted by a group of friendly nurses, I was shown around where to go for the toilet access (important to know as need to do urine test from 3rd trimester onwards). Waited quite a while (~1.5hr) for the consultation, then again, it was a Friday evening; guess that was their peak period (weekdays evening or Saturday morning).

Subsequent visits review:
What I like is Dr. Tan will reassure the baby is ok, healthy (normal). I guess pregnancy hormones tend to overrule at certain times, and I wanted to dig more information, like what did he meant by ok, healthy. So I asked quite a lot of questions. I still remember the morning I was asking about Dorscon situation and how can pregnant mums cope, that evening, Dorscon changed from Yellow to Orange :eek:.

Even with the change in the Dorscon level, the team was quick to set up the necessary social distancing and check in etc, which made me feel assured to come for the checkups.

There were times where I actually felt could be improved as where the appointments were scheduled to start like 9:30am or 10 am but Dr. Tan sometimes will be at the Thomson Medical Center in the morning and only come by around 10 plus to 11am for the consultation. I'm not sure if this is applicable for every day but so far my visits were scheduled between 10 - 11am and I will also "report" to clinic then drop by the nearby coffeeshop to have breakfast while waiting for Dr. Tan.


Dr. Tan's review:
I find that he is a very fact-based person where he will make decision based on the test results and not jumping into conclusions based on experience. For example, my OSCAR test did not turn out well and though I was 'young' (29 then), he recommended for the Harmony Test to confirm baby was ok. This actually help me when I was getting insurance for the baby.
Also, he recommended for a detailed fetal scan for the baby weight in week 37 and based on that, was more assured for normal vaginal delivery. My mucus plug dropped in week 38 +3 around 2am and informed him. Got a reply around 6am (considered quite prompt reply) to go to TMC straight for the dilation check and turns out, I was already 3cm dilated.
Luckily I was already in hospital and there was nothing I had to worry about (i.e. water bag suddenly breaking or stuck in traffic jam etc).
During delivery, Dr. Tan was also very calm and gave clear instructions and I managed to push around 3-5 mins before baby J arrived. Dr. Tan also helped to ensure that blood clots were all purged out before stitching up. Whole delivery was very smooth.

Personally, I'm very glad my pregnancy and delivery was a smooth one and baby J is healthy~

Thank you, Dr. Tan Kai Lit.

Cheers,
E.L.

Hi, Mshightea,

Before Thomson medical increased the ward fees, I spent around 5k in total. Dr Tan's doctor fees were average, not too expensive but also not the cheapest. Also had to pay for the anaesthesia fees because I opt for Epidural.

Recently Dr Tan clinic has shifted to TMC instead.

Cheers,
Eslin
