I just saw him for about 5min after a hr's wait at his Tiong Bahru clinic.It was a terrible experience.
The exchange went something like this:
Dr: what can I do for you?
Me: I'm alredi in my 32th wk, wld like to change my gynae/obs to you
Dr: Why did you not continue seeing Dr Adelina Wong, your scans stated her as your gynae/obs?
Me: I was already sitting inside her rm for the 1st visit then she asked me if her assistants told me that she wont be around for the few wks before my EDD in Sept,so I oni saw her once cos I'm not so comfy having to change doc oni at last stage.
Dr: I 'm also taking leave in Sept 1st wk
Me: (stunned)but I asked your assistants over the phone and they told me you are not fully booked in Sept and you will be around
Dr: I didnt tell them I'm taking leave, so do you still want to c me?
Me: I hav had a C-sect for my 1st boy, if I need to thru ano C-sect before my EDD how?Who will cover you?I dont know what to do now also
Dr: I hav pple to cover me.Why dont you go bck to your previous doc at Thomson Medical Center?
Me: I dont want to see her cos of certain things.I cant believe it's happening again, I tink I 'm going to burst out crying
Dr: you cant stop me fr taking leave
Me: (stunned and dont know what to say)
Dr: then I cancel this appt
Dr: (proceeded to take a card out, took a few moments for me to realise it's nxt patient's cos there's a scan photo inside and I didnt hav any w him)
I managed to stammered a weak thank-you before getting up and going out to sit dwn. The assistant went in for a moment then told me I didnt need to pay and can go.
Guess Dr Woo can be quite contrary to all d good comments I found on the forums so far, no apologies, no Paiseh even for d wait, lack of communication btwn him n his assistants. What did make me actually burst out in tears after leaving d clinic was his dismissive attitude sigh...
Maybe I'm too sensitive or high-strung trying to confirm a gynae/obs at 32 wks,well this is my experience with him
Hi stonston and the rest of mummies who had Dr Woo as your gynae. I found out that i am 5 wks preggy and looking around for gynae. I stay redhill so TB is near to my pls. After seeing the positive comments, i would like to consider Dr Woo as well. May i know an avarage waiting time for his appointment? Anyone with Normal delivery with epidural at Mt A? How much is your total bill size? Thank you.
