I'm seeing dr. wee horng yen at Kandang Kerbau Hospital, he seems to be a good doctor, very patient..
i have a question, my friend told me usually doctor will offer a package for our antenatal, but i checked with the admission counter, they said KK doesn't offer any antenatal package, is that true?
please share your experience..please share how much will the total bill size at KK as for my planning..thanks..
My gynae was Dr Wee too. I like him cos he's very patient and detailed. Do you mean antenatal package as in for regular check-ups or delivery package? I took the Private Suite and was on the Premium package for delivery. Dr Wee delivered my daughter. Had to pay $2000 cash deposit and the rest was deducted by Medisave. Total bill for delivery was about $7k but all medisave deducted.
hi, is 7000 is normal delivery or caesar?
is it true that KK doesn't offer package?
for me is normal delivery. what type of package do you mean?
i meant antenatal package..
sorry to ask you..7000 is during delivery only or from beginning of pregnancy until delivery?
thanks so much for your help..
I just went to the Kandang Kerbau Hospital clinic at amk last nite to check on the rates.. they told mi that there will no antenatal package. The 1st visit consultation charges are $95 for senior consultant, $85 for consultant, $75 for specialist. Follow up visits are $70, $59, $50 (if i remember correctly). Didnt tell mi how much are the scans all those..
Cos I took the A1 premium package
so is there any difference in A1 and A1 Premier Package?
Cause the estimated bill they should me not so much around 4k to 5k before deducting the medisave
A1 premier is Dr Wee will be delivering your baby for you no matter what time the delivery. For me I was induced and I took epidural and painkillers n assisted delivery with vacuum that's y my bill around $7k
I am also consulting Dr Wee in private suite and he is a great doctor... My EDD is mid march and i am checking for wards these days...I have been told by KK that the charges for A1 ward are around 5k (2 days) out of which 2k has to be paid upfront in cash and rest can be used from medisave...
However, i guess this doesn't include birth plan options like Epidural, induce labor etc...
7K is on higher side but KK is far reasonable than other hospitals depending on what birth plan is recommended and availed...
I am still deciding whether to go for A1 ward for B1 as the difference is of about SGD ~ 900 excluding birth plans....pls share your views on whether to OPT A1 or B1..
Dr Wee delivers the baby in these 2 wards for Premier package patients so not much choice... Not sure if any inpatient discount is given to the patient?
I just give birth on jan 16 and i was induced at week 39 staying in A1 ward using only the gas mask.. I paid 2k plus in cash balance by cpf ( total bill size estimate is 5k) during the reservation of ward but end up they refund me cheque of $1100 plus..
I also see ing Dr. Wee about 2 years ago (2010). I wish for normal delivery but end up with caesarian since already induced but not success. I cannot remember I pay how much. But they get 1 list of price in different colour paper which you can choose. I choose the one that I want my Gynae that help me with delivery (I think this is premium or premier )
Dr. Wee is very nice, friendly, detail
Now I hear he move to Novena Medical Centre
Yap Dr Wee has moved to Novena Medical Centre. I too , agreed that he is very nice & friendly. Most importantly he is very experienced. My elder daughter was delievered by him in May 2011 subsequently my twins were delievered by him in Aug 2012 - all normal delivery! My 2nd twin was breech and Dr Wee delievered her beautifully with his magic hands! And Yes! without Epidural...
He is one gynae whom you know your babies will be safe under his care.

I had made an appt to see him nxt thurs..
Anyone still seeing him currently or recently?
Is it painful wen he had to perform the episiotomy or stitching? How long does it takes to heal for you?
I'm seeing Dr Wee now for my second pregnancy. I didn't feel anything probably cos I had epidural when he did the epi and stitching for my first delivery. It took about 1 week to not feel the stinging and 2 weeks to heal completely.
Hi.. May i know Is he is still with Kk?
nope, he has his own clinic at novena medical centre. The O&G Care Clinic Pte Ltd
Just check with Kandang Kerbau Hospital, that Dr Wee was no longer with them but Novena Medical Center.
