Anybody knows if he will do the delivery at mount alvernia
Previously when we see him, he will do delivery in Thomson Medical Center or MT A.
I had insisted his nurse to book MT A for me since i like the hospital room and heard good reviews about the nurses there though they tried to persuade me to go for Thomson Medical Center..
I just called them and they told me earliest to see dr tham will be 25 June onwards. If I walk in without appointment, will they charge more expensive? i will be at about week 7 after 25 june and actually hoping to see the doctor next week.
I think price should be the same.. but its better to book apt.. then you dont have to wait too long.
I first went to see him when I am in Week 6.. baby is still so small.. like a pea.
Cost us about $180-200 to see him.
His package start from week 12 onwards.. think 600+
you can only get the package when you are week 12 onwards. Dr. will schedule you to see him once every month. Each visit will consist of doc's consultation (as in you can ask doc question about your pregnancy,discomfort etc), he will do a scan of your baby development growth and they will provide 1 pc of printed out photo of your baby. Or you can bring USB memory stick to save your baby size, length and details etc. Medicine, supplements and other tests such as OSCAR, GLUCOSE test OGTT are not including. To be charged separately.
When you are in Week 34 onwards, he will schedule to see you 3weeks later, then followed by 2weeks later in wk 36, then weekly till you give birth
Been reading a lot about Dr Ben Tham. Just a query,
a. if any mummies were to share her experience on the bill incurred should your delivery was done in Mount Alvernia.
b. if Dr Ben Tham do charge additional if he were to deliver in Mount Alvernia.
Appreciate some feedbacks/comments please. Thanks much!
Dear all, have you ever come across overdue EDD with Dr Ben Tham? As I am expected to be overdue... However, I dont't wish to have induce or c-sect, unless necessary...
Oh my friend is overdue under his care. She was induced eventually.
i previously had my delivery done by Dr tham when he was @ Kandang Kerbau Hospital. He is very experienced to tell when you need inducement or baby needs to be out, so no worries about that. my edd if i remember was supposed to be 12 but nothing happen. my dear daughter born on 17.
Any comments on his c-sec and episiotomy skill?

Anybody did 3D/4D scan? I am wondering if dr Ben's machine can do the scan.
Viewing: not sure about 4D coz i did not opt for that. but he should be able to do it
oscar scan inclusive of blood test i think 300+or 400+ cant rem but if have the fbi or sbi card will be abit cheaper.
you should have sign the package then visit no need pay only pay for med if you take.
When should we see a gynae? Is week 4 too early?
lynntoh: i have not sign for that card yet. my husband ask me not to sign so i am still considering.
