Need best O & G for high risk pregnancy
- 06-30-2004, 11:09 PM #9
Thank you all for your helpful recommendations and suggestions.
First up, I'll be seeing Dr Phillip Ho this Friday and will let you know how it'd gone.
I've also made an appt to see Dr Doo in a couple of weeks time. I have a weakness for ultrasounds as I get to see baby so I'm really excited about these visits.
As I mentioned earlier, since this is a surprise pregnancy, we don't have maternity cover so these 'shop around' visits will be kept to a minimum. I will explore the Queen Mary option with the Drs as prematurity is quite likely in my case.
Am trying to get a pic. of the 'fruits' of my two hard won pregnancies up so bear with me if it all goes awry. How do you get a picture up next to my name?

All the Drs have an u/s machine, however only a couple have the latest high-tech models.
I think the HK Drs are both OBGYNs and IVF specialists. Please correct me if I'm wrong.
Honestly for a high-risk pregnancy the public system offers the best care. They have the lastest equipment and the most experienced Drs on call.

Queen Mary is part of the public system. I don't know the names of the Drs but you can email them for more information.

Please note that that IVF specialists are not necessarily OB/GYN and vice versa.
For example Dr Ghosh is an OB/GYN but not IVF, same for Dr Sally Ferguson. Dr Stevenson (IVF) only recently started doing OB work as well.
These are two different fields as such that overlap.
Usually after an IVF cycle you are released to a regualr OB/GYN at around 6 weeks.
Queen Mary specialists are Prof Terence Lao and Dr CP Lee of the High Risk Clinic.
Please note that all births under 34 weeks are dealt with the government system. No private hospital or doctor can deliver you. You would call your dr who would then tell you to go to the QMH. That is why many private drs will send you there to visit the unit etc so that you know the lay out should something happen before 34 weeks.
I know that Dr Doo does refer his high risk patients to the QMH as does Dr Ferguson. They are the experts even for putting in a stitch for incompetent cervix.
Put it this way, things I have seen and heard of recently I would not even put a stitch in, in a private clinic. The QMH has the best experience and has seen it all compared to a private dr who may only see one odd case every now and again.
All the best! FP

I want to thank everybody for all the helpful advice and suggestions. Unfortunately, this pregnancy was not meant to be.
I consulted Dr Phillip Ho, he was very understanding and caring, he did spend some time with us to go through our case.
I did have to go to Matilda Hospital, I agree that you'd be quite nervous heading out all that way when you are in labour esp if high risk.
I did not see Dr Doo or anyone else. I hope everyone else have better luck with their pregnancies. Thank you once again.
