    I guess her prices are reasonable. I just had pap smear and HPV test at my doc for HK$1,000.

    Hello there


    I am using Dr. Raymond Ng. I've been to a couple and so far I think he is the most detailed doctor and who doesnt rush you to make decisions. His fees are lower I think. My insurance covers them but the first time I saw him with ultrasound and smear test cost a total ofr $750 only (I charged it to my insurance and since I am still in my waiting period of 9 months, my insurance charged me that price). Each time I see him, he allows about 45 minutes for everything. However, he will be out of town when I deliver so I've decided to deliver in QMH rather than go to another doctor who I may not be so comfortable with.

    Hope this helps. Good luck.

    Hi Cindy,

    Great advice a friend of mine gave me when i first found out I was pregnant and realized I didn't even have a clue which doctor to go to was to not panic as I would have 9 months to find the perfect doctor. The ob-gyn listed on this site are some of the best so good to check them out. It also depends on what you're looking for in terms of personality, language skills, pricing etc. This IS the person you'll be seeing alot of and really needing when you're in labour so best to try as many as you need until you find the one you're happy with. Don't take too long though if you are planning to deliver in a private hospital as space is very limited.

    I'm seeing Dr Alex Doo and think he's great. Pleasant bedside manner, very open, friendly, gives you an overview of the various options etc. He only goes to Sanatorium, Adventist or Matilda though.

    Hope this helps and good luck!

    My understanding is that all these doctors are very ex-pat friendly and have a western approach to maternity care etc. if that is what you are looking for. To avoid paying lots of money in consultation fees, why don't you just put a list together of your 3 or 4 main questions and concerns and ask to speak to one of the doctors or one of their nurses/staff by phone before booking the consultation.

    Celine just pregnant

    Hi everybody,

    I m french and in HK for 1 year. I just found out I'm Pregnant for 1 month, like you Cindy. It was not previous in the schedule so I dont have insurance to cover the maternity it means a lot of money!!!

    I'd like having a doctor to follow me for 9 months and delivery in a public hospital to save money but I don t have any friends with baby so that s erally difficult for me to know where I have to go. I m so afraid because I hate the hospital and I m not in my country. I just have my husband to help me so.....

    Could you give me some advice about good gynecologist and a good hospital I can feel safe

    tks a lot
    Here you have my email adress: [email protected]:yeah2

    celi, congrats! don't worry, the public hospitals take good care of their patients, because they need to keep up to the government's regulations! i'm alone in hk with only my husband and his family, too. i saw a private ob/gyn and also went to the MCHC's for check-ups. delivered at a public hospital in july. everything went fine! this way, you will also spend very little money, and with the money you save (about 100k?!), you can enjoy many other things afterwards with your baby. i would say go for public and don't be afraid. do pm me if you need to ask me questions.

    Hi there, I just saw Canossa's comprehensive maternity package ($28,000 incl. all antenatal visits, delivery and post-natal visits). Just called up to enquire, with this package you can choose the first class room and one of their ob/gyn specialists: Amelia Wong, Catherine Cheung and Wilfred Wong.

    What's Catherine Cheung like? Is she ex-pat friendly?
