ya his hair very side parting... but seeing him makes me feel very assured especially in the delivery suite...
i think its because that is your first checkup... consultation at AMK clinic is cheaper than Kandang Kerbau Hospital, i think maybe due to the facilities bah... At Kandang Kerbau Hospital inside the private suite got free berevages but not at AMK ...
amk only plain water..............
but also no chance drink ... Kandang Kerbau Hospital always called by nurse go here go there.... so end up wouldnt b able to drink ...............
BUT I FEEL THAT AMK the consultation longer... Kandang Kerbau Hospital very rushing liddat.
but isn't the que at amk is shorter??
Is there a number to call if there's an emergency? like going into labour? Call Kandang Kerbau Hospital directly or does Dr. Ben have a direct number to call? Never asked him this question yet... anybody knows?
If the signs of labour came, go to Kandang Kerbau Hospital directly, second floor, delivery suit...tell them what happened to you...the nurse will inform Dr Ben and he will come and see you.
Actually when you are near to your duedate, the nurse will ask you to choose the delivery package and from there they will tell you what to do when signs of labour comes.
Thanks yan for your reply
does dr tham only delivers at kk hospital??
oh ok, thanks for the reply yakii.
Anyone still seeing Dr Ben Tham recently? Any recent comments on him at TPS or AMK clinic?
he's a very good and patient doctor.. you're in good hands if you choose him. when i have concerns i always drop him email(cos with KK we're not given doctor personal number) and he'll promptly reply.
I just change my gynae & made my appt with dr benjamin tham.... on next coming sat.... was wonder y they make my appt so near... cause i just did my scan & OGTT test on 16/11... & now he wanna to see me in 28/11... & also just called up Kandang Kerbau Hospital.. the nurse say i have to pay like first visit price cause i change my gynae.... means this month i will be broke...
for the fees, he's a senior consultant so you'll be paying the most expensive rate, but trust me it's very worth it.
from another thread i read that your current gynae like to rush and bochap kind.. rest assured dr tham is NOT like that. he's very warm and gentle and patient, at the end of check up always ask 'you have any other concerns?' and on his namecard got his email, can just email him if you have anything to ask.
another thing i appreciate from him is that he's very pro natural labor, cos my mom been asking me go c-section for the sake of convenience.. then i told him but he encourage me to go for natural. i told my mom about what he said then my mom believed him
OMG.... doc benjamin is reali nice.... today is my first appt with him.... hubby & i was happy.....
hi yuki, my delivery went smoothly and goes according to plan.. and big part of the success is because of Dr Tham.
yes my baby was induced on 22nd nov and coincidentally when i admitted dr tham was in the delivery suite then he said 'ok, i no need to go home already' haha, so throughout the day during my labor he was there checking on me few hourly. i also used 1 prostin tablet only because he did the cervix stretch, my cervix only open 3cm then.. really lucky he's there cos if he wasn't the on-duty doctor would have just put 2nd table for me and my labor surely take longer.
in short, i really appreciate dr tham for his company the whole sunday(3am-10pm!!)
dont't worry yuki.. with dr tham you're in good hand.
