    Good Paediatrician

    Hello
    Dr Joseph Pang has been recommended to me as a good paed. Has anyone else used him and if so, what are you thoughts? Any other recommendations greatly appreciated.
    Many thanks

    Not a fan. He's not very supportive of breastfeeding, very much in favour of letting very young babies 'cry it out' and a bit condescending to first time parents.
    I saw him for about 10 months until I switched.

    I didn't like him either. Just the way he seemed to pin down my daughter to vaccinate her felt wrong. He was also very difficult to get in touch with. Dr. Yvonne Ou gives the best vaccinations without restraining.

    I second that on Dr. Dannie Ting. Very gentle on kids. Understanding of first time mothers. Very knowledgeable and supportive too.

    We weren't happy with Dr. Pang either. Switched after the first month to Dr. Dannie Ting. Have been with her since. She's great with both kids (very gentle) and parents (listens well and never rushes).

    We see Dr. Alfred Tam and are very happy with him, although he has a very busy schedule and sometimes its hard to make a last minute booking with him (once I had to see another doctor at his clinic for my LO's flu because I couldm't get a booking with him for the same day). He is very good with the kids and explains things thoroughly to us.

    heard not so good things about Dr. J. Pang as well (impatient with first time parents).

    We tried three different pds until we are finally settled with Dr. Alfred Tam. He is a great doctor - busy but do not rush through appointments, gentle with my baby boy, knowledgeable and explain things very clearly. He is expensive but worth it.
