the guys feel waste of money haha. and i think we signing the card meaning hoping for more kids and i guess freak the guys out
Hi all MTB, Im new here.
I just booked appt with Dr Ben after reading the good reviews in mid Feb but just to check with you all.
Does anyone experience cramp feeling during early pregnancy? Im having constipation and another dr says can hear alot noises in my stomach. I cant tell the pain comes from stomach or womb area.
hi mummies, do you call the line to book appointment or SMS? i tried calling the line but nobody pick up...
Hi, will dr ben tham give hospital leave toward the end near to due date for us to rest at home?
now cannot .. co I think they catching.. so must take ml
I can never seem to get someone to answer my calls. Is there a certain time or way to get hold of them? I been calling the whole morning only to be asked to hold repeatedly by the machine.. I did the sms appointment line but there was also no response.
fuyumi, the clinic number is hotline. so must keep calling. as the clinic has many gynae.. try calling at 830 - 9am.. dont try 1230 - 2 coz lunch time.
Thanks! I managed to get through the line after holding for quite a while after a couple of phone calls. I think I called from 9 all the way till 12..
fuyumi: no prob..i always hated to call too haha.. always wait very long for the nurse to pick up. then tok to them less than 5min. sigh~ but dr ben really good gynae my 2 boys he delivered .
hope i get to see him next year if god giving me 1 more kid
Hi, i also encounter same problem getting through the line. Some of them not very patient in answering phone also. But once you go for first appt, the next one is book on spot. so become easier..
Asphere, did you choose Thomson Medical Center or Mt A when he delivered your 2 boys? he doesnt seem to like Mt A.. he want us take Thomson Medical Center
i took Thomson Medical Center. coz the clinic is at Thomson Medical Center mah.. easier for him too
Hi - help please. Do you know if Dr Benjamin Tham accepts patients in 3rd trime (week 32)?
I'm thinking of changing doc as I just found out my gynae is on vacation during weeks 37 - 39 =(
You can try calling the clinic to ask. FYI I was under Dr Tham and he was excellent! Will get him when I conceive again.
Hi all, I'm with Dr Tham but heard that Thomson Medical Center nurses not that good. Now I'm kinda worried and wonder if should deliver at Thomson Medical Center or not. Any feedback regarding delivering there?
Did you gers get his package? Is it worth getting?
What about the FBI card? For OSCAR only 5% .. dont know worth getting or not..
Hihi personally I feel the nurses are great.. but I think lucky suay .. you can opt yo deliver at other hospital but must pay higher charge .. I suggest you stick to Thomson Medical Center. Get 1 bedder keke.. dr ben package is reasonable .. not to worry..hope you enjoy your visit keke..
Thanks Asphere! Shall keep my fingers crossed for good nurses then =)
You had 1 bedder? How is the experience as compared 2 and above?
My is 1 bedder n my nurses good.. 2 bedder I not sure but I dont like 2 bedder coz room very small n you will need lots of rest so 1 bedder better keke n baby can b w you longer
I delivered in Thomson Medical Center also in june. I personally think the nurses are great and I love the food. I took 1 bedder. Dr ben tham is really a very good doctor and my stitches healed very nicely. He is very skilled when he helped me deliver. Very fast! If I conceive again I will definitely go to him again.
I delivered in June as well and dr Tham was perfect in stitching. I opted for 4 bedded but was given 2 bedded. Service was good from nurses and they were so prompt when I pressed the bell for assistance. When I needed help for breastfeeding, they got me the midwife to assist promptly. Good variety of food and of course their speciality was the papaya fish soup which was yummy!!
Thanks mummies!! You all make me feel at ease with my choice. =D
Did anyone of you applied for the Thomson Medical Center FBI card? Useful?
The FBI card is quite useful as we had more vouchers/discounts when we signed for prenatal courses and cordlife. Thomson Medical Center will also have sale every now and then for members. Though I didnt go but I saw that the deals can be quite good. I forgot for which scan the FBI card gives you discount too. Personally I feel it is worth it.
For me, the FBI card not useful despite the list of privileges offered. Mine used mostly for paediatrician visits at Thomson Medical Center. Other than that, when I wanted to buy stuff from the Thomson Medical Center pharmacy, I was informed that not all items have discounts even with the card.
Haha.. mixed reviews.. Btw, how do you girls contact Dr Tham if want to ask him things? The iron supplement he gave me make me feel super sick in the stomach. Emailed him but no response. So I just skipped it totally. Waste monies =/
You mean he's contactable by email? I usually contact via the phone - most frustrating so I give up sometimes!
