Anyone had Dr. Theresa Cheng as gynae before? Any comments about her?
Her charges are quite high.
I used to go to her but after 3 consultations I changed to another. She is very insensitive. Thats why..
Personally, I wouldn't recommend anyone to go there.
STAY AWAY FROM HER!!!!!!!!!!

Her charges are indeed quite high. The consultations with her depend on her mood. When in good mood, she will chat with you. When in bad mood, she doesnt talk much. However, i think she is a very responsible gynae with her patients.
She is the worst gynae I have seen.
Yes I agree
The Doctor is not convincing, ask one thing answer another thing.
Price is over-charged. Assistants are rude. Overall, bad service.
I won't go back there again. Just the thought of their service can make me boil.
I thought the assistants are quite ok. but the gynae herself really has some attitude.
She recommended me to go for caesarean this sat quoting reason that my baby's bladder is obstructed. my baby is only gonna be 36 week old this weekend. is it too late to switch gynae now? sigh, having second thoughts now. really bad.
I just found out also that the gynae was previously involved in some court case. anybody knows about that?
Izit too late to change to another gynae @ this stage?? I reali dont feel good upon hearing her commenting diff tinks @ the same time...coz she claimed that there's one of her patients recently @ 37th week had a little bit bleeding & was then induced (as her baby was kinda sick together with the placenta)..she gave birth to 2.1kg baby which is pretty small as Dr Cheng...I'm reali at the wits ends now...i wanna go thru norm delivery & by end May my baby will be 38th week...
hmmm... i begged to differ. when i discovered i was pregnant and called the clinic for a scan test, the assistant (a "Pamela") was terribly impolite. bcos of this, i swear never to step into this clinic in my life. after reading this forum page, i know that there is really a problem with this clinic (and not myself) .. phew.
anyway, if you do a search online, using the full name of the gynae, you will see searches of a court case before, between the gynae and Singapore's well known investor, Oei Hong Leong.
I was seeing Dr Theresa Cheng for my pregnancy as I was staying nearby. Being my 1st pregnancy, I had lots of anxiety n queries. Each time I visited Dr Cheng n asked her questions, her answer would always be " Ask my nurses outside!''. Many a time it were the regular nurses who reassured n eased my anxiety, giving me encouragement with their smiling faces n sound advice. Till the last trimester, Dr Cheng kept telling me my baby would be big n would need a caesarian. I was very distressed as I very much wanted to try for a normal delivery. Therefore my husband brought me for a 2nd opinion. The other doctor was sayng my baby was of normal size n should try for natural birth. I finally decided to change gynae.
I had a normal delivery n my baby's birth weight was only 2970g. I was glad that I have changed doctor. Now my baby is 8 mths old n when I pass by the clinic, I would still bring my baby in n say hello n thank you to the nurses ( not Dr Theresa Cheng! ). When I was feeling down n almost went into blues, it was the nurses whom gave me so much TLC....THANK YOU SO MUCH
Later on the 18th, I'd ask for her next alternative apart from being induced on 27th May. If she still insist on it,I reali wanna change GYNAE!! Pls advise...
she was the gynae who helped my mum to delivered me... my mum kinda "reccommended" her and Dr Kee (e 1 who delivered my bro) to me but lucky that time we dont know where she's now located if not i think i'll be seeing her...
if you wanna change a gynae, go ahead! at least seek for an 2nd opinion... ask another gynae if you should be induce, if you should really go for c-sect... there's not much time left, so if you wanna seek for and 2nd option, better do it asap..
When I 1st stepped into the clinic, I was attended by the 2 pleasant & friendly assistants. But when I stepped into Dr Cheng room, her 1st impression to me was messy and very serious. Since I was only 7 weeks pregnant, I still can buy time to look around for a gynae. During my 2nd visit on 20/4/09 pm, there was a pregnant lady whom just came out from the washroom suddenly fainted near to the patient's waiting area. The 2 assistants immediately notified Dr Cheng. I heard them mentioned low B/P, low pulse rate. Very quickly, the patient was put on drip with several injections given. Soon, the patient regained conscious & was fine. The clinic was very crowded than. For what I & my husband witness, we knew that Dr Cheng will be my gynae. At least in case of this situation were to happen to me (touch wood!), we knew that she could handle it calmly & steadily.
I 1st visit Dr Cheng in 1999 during my 1st son but dont feel good with her consultation and went to seek a 2nd opinion... Eventually went to Kandang Kerbau Hospital cos that time do not know much about pvt gynae... Now I m currently seeing a gynae @ Chong Pang since 2000 and I find him very friendly and assuring, even my younger sis and most of my friends are seeing him too....
I had c-section done by Dr Cheng. My friends also had c-section done, but by other doctors. In comparison, all said my caesarean scar is the most beautiful one. SO HAPPY!!! Guess her hands are good.
My cesarean scar by Dr Cheng also recovered very beautifully & fast. Seen my friend's scar - looks like a caterpillar! (Not by Dr Cheng) Only thing about Dr Cheng is her being temperamental. When she's in a good mood, you can discuss anything under the sun with her. And when she's in her bad mood, better 'chop chop' & cut short. Luckily her 2 staffs (Jamie & Pamela) are very nice & helpful. If Dr Cheng is in the foul mood, usually will get advise from them. Otherwise, will seek their help to ask Dr on my behalf. On the whole, I also think that her skill is good.
Hi ladies, you better listen to Jill man!!! I'm currently 20 weeks' pregnant, have brand new to Dr Cheng for couple of visits alrdy!!! before that, o man!!! Was at another gynae!! Can tell you, that one really pissed me offffffffffffff....... Plus the assistants there, they ain't there to please us patients, more likely to show off their superiority!! Decided to change gynae, was referred to Dr Cheng by a reeeaaaalllllllllllll good friend of mine, BFF if you must ask me!!!! have never looked back eversince. Dr Cheng was super, yes, she had her moments, but hey, who hasn't? When she's in a fantastic mood, wh lucky for me, maybe my lucky stars with me? She can be so patient, wld tell me more than I need to know. Maybe you guys or ladies have not brand new too clear with your questions? On top of that, her 2 nurses, Pamela and Jamie, had always brand new super super nice to me.... I'll definitely recommend Dr Cheng and her nurses to anyone any day!!!
Hihi... yes i agreed who doesnt have their moments!!! But Dr Cheng is really ok she always joke with me & my hubby and always teases him too... she'll give lots of advices & cases to us about mummy & baby. Maybe you can say she's abit too kia su but she's a responsible gynae, after all it's for our own good, rite? I heard comments about she likes to give jabs during my 1st pregnancy, becos that x i always need to get jabs for every visits due to pregnancy complications and even almost had a miscarriage, stayed in for 5 days! Believed me i get 2 jabs most of the times during my every visits till my due date, she's knws i am fearful of it and will talk to me try to distract my attn. I also had my c-section @ 36wks due to my baby is not growing well. Sometimes I'll think like what others said Dr Cheng likes to give jabs to her patients! But until I had my 2nd pregnancy a your later, my baby girl does not give me all these trouble & worry. I dont need to have jabs, i only visit Dr Cheng about once a month and girl came in due. So when we get jabs is only when necessary. Heard before that baby boy is weaker maybe that's the answer to my 1st pregnancy. Also the 2 assistants, Jamie & Pamela they are really really nice and soft to me, they are always polite, we'll joke also. Really missed them!!! Recently I called up to make appt for my best friend, Pamela still can remember me. Still can remember during my 1st pregnancy, at cny's eve i cried in the clinic due to worry & not mentally prepared that my baby maybe have to come out on that very day, which was supposed and actually 5days later only. Jamie kept comforting me not to worry things like that. She was even so SWEET to called me up on the 3rd day of cny to check out how was I saying saw me so worried that makes her worried too... so sweet of her...
*Just a quick thought, dont flame me*
noticed that those nicks coming in to praise Dr Cheng are not regulars in the forum? Their post here is their only posts in the forum? dont't you gals find it suspicious when you read it?And their typing style/language is very similar?
*It's just a quick thought, i may be wrong *
