Thank you very much
he is a good gynae.. keke make my pregnancy and birth giving day a smooth one strongly recommend thumbs up
can i check usually how long does each visit takes? Does Dr Tham give you lots of advise and inform you on baby's progress or he is that kind of 5mins doctor? meaning you go in, perform routine checks, everything ok and you will be out within 5 mins
E.g. I do chat with him about my work. Will ask about my constipation issue. some times he will caution me to watch my diet when weight gain is a bit too fast. he will also give you time to ask questions and explain to you certain things. Like he gave me baby aspirin some time ago due to bilateral uterine notching. he will do the ultrasound scan and tell you how baby is doing such as baby's weight and the different parts of baby's body.
Dr benjamin is definitely a caring n good doctor to go for
For those going to see Dr Benjamin, do bring along a thumb drive for his nurse to save the scan photos in it. Only 1 print out will be provided. For our 1st scan, 3 photos were saved in the thumb drive.
would like to know, does Dr Tham deliver at Mt A?
felicity, yes he does deliver at Mt A though he prefers Thomson Medical Center.
i miss visiting him, and miss counting down to the appt dates haha.
From the package delivery in hospital other then Thomson Medical Center have a charge of $300 that is the fee for the gynae.
I just delivered last year Jul not sure this year changed already anot
Felicity best is to called up the clinic / email dr tham pte email ask for the package pricing
thank you luvjoanne and Mdm Khoo!
i went to Thomson Medical Center today for my appt but didn't get to see Dr Tham after my oscar test as he was away for emergency surgery. =/ the sister there told me that we are discouraged to get the docs deliver outside of Thomson Medical Center due to difficulty to reach in emergency cases and quote that current case where doc can go straight up to perform surgery without any delay. however my hubby and myself thinking to switch to Mt A or KK due to convenient (parking, traffic, etc) =/ if we switch, will miss Dr Tham!
I think it would be better to deliver where the gynae's office is, for this case, Thomson Medical Center. Dr Tham was always there when I needed him during my whole delivery process. But from my understanding, Thomson Medical Center will be quite full this year coz many popular gynaes dont't want to deliver at Mt A. Just my two cents worth.
we've decided to just stick with Thomson Medical Center afterall... anyone signed for the first born incentive? i didn't really find out about it until after i've done my oscar and paid for the package... then my colleague was raving to me about it. wonder if it's too late to sign.
Is not too late to sign up is just that you might missed the early bird price...
thanks Mdm Khoo! will consider =)
