    thanks Rani!

    I've also been recommended to Dr. Tanpa Thondup. Do you have any experience with him?

    Anyone else wants to share their experience with me, all very welcome.

    thanks

    Is a pediatrician the only option?

    Hi
    I'm looking for a good GP in Central or close by.
    Can anyone recommend one?
    I've just come back from australia with a new baby.
    It is rare to visit a pediatrician there, especially for general illness, such as fever and colds that I know a baby will get a lot of.
    Unfortunately we do not have a company that covers our health cover so I am not so keen to pay a premium amount for a specialist to tell me that my baby needs panadol, if there is an option.
    Can anyone recommend a good GP who is familiar with child health and is not quick to over medicate unneccesarily?
    Or has the general experience been that GP's have been not good enough?

    Good GP in Central

    Hi Cinnomon,

    Nice to meet you!! I came back from Australia as well. If you want a GP with Diploma in Child Health, I will recommend Dr Thomas Chan, used to be a resident MO in Canossa Hospital. He has his own clinic in Tak Shing House, Central year ago(phone number : 2973 0968), , and he's also from Australia. Dr Chan is very experienced and patient, and can call him from Canossa out-patient during holidays. BTW, how old is your baby? My kids are three years old and 8 months old.

    Karen

    I wanted to know how one goes about contacting a pediatrician to check our baby over once he's born. I have had two reccomendations from friends for pediatricians in Central.
    Do I phone them now and say we would like them to come to the hospital once our baby is born? Or do I just give their name to the hospital and then they will contact them?

    Some doctors will recommend pediatrician to pregnant mothers. If yours does not, you can confirm with your preferred pediatrician before the baby is born in terms of expected date, cost and hospital. For me, it was easy as I had the schedule and details confirmed weeks before.

    OK great, thanks for that, I will contact the pediatrician we have chosen once we have chosen the hospital.

    D has been sick the whole of July. Our Pedia was on holiday and so we went to the out patient clinic at Canossa hospital. There's a really good Dr there, Kenneth Tsui. He's a GP and has a diploma in Pediatrics. Also very reasonable. $190 for a consultation.
