    Selecting a Paediatrician

    My baby is due at the end of the year. I figured it is probably a good time to start looking for a paediatrician. Can anyone recommend one that they are really happy with?? What is the norm? Do parents usually meet with the paediatrician first and what questions should i prepare myself to ask (obviously first time mom)? Any info is much appreciated.

    Hi Avi,
    I can recommend Dr Ou. She practices in DB (Island Health). She's very calm and friendly. She has an excellent rapor with the children including being able to give my 2 year injections without him creating a fuss. She also has little tricks for my 4 month old like getting me to breast feed whilst she has an injection so again no fuss.
    In my case I didn't meet her before hand; the first time we met was in the delivery room at the Matilda. Hope that helps,
    Jools

    Hi Jools,
    Does Dr. Ou practises on Hong Kong island? If so do you have her contact number. I take it DB stands for Discovery Bay and I do not live on DB.

    Hi Momo,
    I think she also practices in Repulse Bay but I don't have a number. Yes DB does stand for Discovery Bay. I am seeing a friend tomorrow who knows where she works at Repulse Bay so I'll let you know.
