I would like to know more about Dr Chen charges, as my gynea package increase from $1K to $1.2K, my hubby feel it very ex... Might want to change gynea... Need to know about his package and include what? How much is the hospital bill in Mt A for normal delivery, any one can advise?
I'm now seeing Dr. Chen too, very patient & friendly gynae, always smiling. This year onwards there are no more evening sessions, and they have started to accept payment thru nets, so no need to purposely withdraw cash. Meanwhile i can also easily get MC during weekday appt.
I'm in my 2nd semester now, been with Dr. Chen since I first discovered I'm pregnant. So far find him very pleasant to visit. Ya, he like to smile until cannot see eye one There's a lot of people even on the weekdays. But the wait is bearable and still got place to sit and wait, so not that bad

Our first child was delivered by Dr Chen. Really no complains about him..Very good n patient doctor....
I feel that his charges are very reasonable.....On the day of discharge, when my hubby went to settle the bill the staff at the business office mentioned to him that this doctor charges very very reasonable. She was saying some other doctors are charging about 3 times more for normal delivery. FYI mine is assisted delivery (Vacuum)
To those who experienced elective C-sec with Dr. Chen, may I know how does he schedule the c-sec? Is it he'll give certain dates and time for us to choose from? Is it normally in early morning?
Hi, im 1st time mummy. 4th month pregnant, but doesnt have a stable gynae. Dr chen is at yishun chong pang one? He got any package? Compare with dr lawrance ang at sunplaza which is better?
Yes dr Chen do have a package about $700+ I think for this year 2012. The package include vitamins. But other tests like Oscar,detail scan, blood test are excluded. Actually is hard to compare between gynaes. I am a patient of dr Chen. It's really depends on what type of gynae you are looking for ?? More on a reasonable rate on packages (daily visits/delivery) or a friendly gynae.
Personally I think Dr Chen is a very good gynae... Very friendly,fatherly & always smiling. He is a 100% detailed gynae very professional and assurance. You should try visiting either gynae yourself to make decision. Every mummies have different opinion of different gynaes... I believe that you should get a gynae whom you feel comfortable which is more important as he will be the one who is delivering your baby.
Btw... Oh what happened to you.. How come you r already 4 months & without a stable gynae ??
But i heard from a lot people say dr lawrance ang very good and etc.. Maybe im going to him on this 22nd again cause my husband suggest.
Oh you are very confused it choosing a gynae after hearing what you mentioned. You already visited Dr Lawrance Ang @ Sun Plaza, you already feel not comfortable with this gynae.. why do you still want to go back to him (*stratched head) ... Hmm.. your mum recommended the Doc who is not a gynae.. you shouldn't be visiting this doc at all actually.. cos' she can't even help you.. you r preggie.. you need a gynae.
Hmm...Then now you mention you decided to go back to Dr Lawrance Ang... Personally I think if you feel uncomfortable with him .. just by going back to him again just becos' alot people said he is good...I dont't think you will be comfortable at all. How good is good?? Hmmm... you are the one who is going tru labour not your hubby ... so you should be the one comfortable to your gynae.
By not getting a gynae that you are comfortable with, may cause stress during your labour or tru out preggie.
Then you must check properly what is his package like, cos' usually package doesnt include other tests like oscars, glucose test,swap test, detailed scan etc.
Gynae Delivery charges you need to check also. Oh he delivered at Thomson. Hmm.. It wouldn't be any cheaper. As hospital stay @ Thomson Medical Center is also quite x.
Personally I would advice you to get a gynae that you are comfortable.. to go tru your rest of your pregnancy & labour with.. then someone you already mention you are not comfortable.
Your gynae is charging less than $700 (package) most probably its not inclusive of vitamins or copy of scan everytime appt. So all these you got to check.. if without all these .. it's consider quite not worth it also...
actually if you on budget. Dr chen will be better. like today i went to see him on my problem, he never charge me on extra consultation fee. cos in package he provide, any extra visit will be charge, but so far for the last 2 extra visit he onli charge me on medi and tests. thomson is actually more ex then mount A also.
but for your case already 4mths. you can count how many visit you need then decide whether is it worth it to take package. from 20week to 30 week is like maybe 2 to 3 visit, 30week plus will be once every 2 week, which will be around 3 to 4 visits or more. so you go count which consultation visit w/ scan is how much, before sign the package.
for dr chen, you can always call clinic 6757 2323 to ask about the package price.
agreed w/ dilys, get a gynae that you are comfortable. you r the one who going throu the labour, not your friend or hubby.
My friend"s baby delivered by Dr Chen in year 2010 recommended me. He helps her along till delivery, unfortunately her baby was breech so she got to c-sect. Her stitch was properly sewn up.. After 2 weeks she can go ahead with her post natal massage. Her wound no infection @ all.
Btw, Dr Chen is a pro natural delivery gynae. He will encourage you to have natural delivery.. But no choice if you need c-sect he will do a good job too!
So far my hubby & I respect Dr Chen alot.. He helps me alot tru my preggie..
So pls take all these things into consideration when r you choosing a gynae! you have to know more informations before you choose one!
My baby was delivered by dr chen last year.. He really did an excellent job and really very assurance too! At first i was thinking if i should sign his package, but i just go with my feelings and i really feel comfortable with him. Dr chen encourage natural delivery. I remembered, during my last push, i was distressed and dr chen was the one giving me all the moral support n strength to carry on... he told me i will see my baby in 25 seconds... and indeed my baby was out. All the checkups, scans, delivery,stitches were smooth n really good. I must say his stitches are very well done, i dont feel a thing after i delivered.
Now, im still seeing him for my yearly checkups and may still need his help to do a surgery on the fibroid that i developed.
Wish you all the best and have a smooth delivery! Most importantly, be happy that ure a new mom!
i havent told him about my birth plan. anyway watever is it, i always feel safe w/ Dr chen
oh dr chen clinic now onli open
