    pregnancy check ups

    Can any one help. I have a friend visiting HK for a couple of months who needs a couple of routine check ups. When I was pregnant i went the government route but I assume she will have to go private.
    Does any one know any reasonably priced doctors?

    Thanks

    don't know of any "reasonably priced" specialists of any description. as she would need an actual OBGYN, rather than a GP, she'll have to pay for it.

    from my understanding, an appointment can cost anywhere from $700 -1500...not including tests or scans.

    Ayah - thanks for the reality check.

    Don't suppose you could point me in the right direction with a few names etc?

    sorry, i , too used the public system.

    she could check:

    Dr. Doo
    Dr. Fergussan
    Dr. Lord
    Dr. Ghosh
    Dr. Derek Lo

    those are the only names I can think of off the top of my head. But, i seem to recall that there is a listing of drs on this website. She could go through the list and call around. I'm sure a "local-local" dr would be cheaper.

    I have found that there are 3 strata of drs here:

    1) cheapest~ locally born, locally educated
    2) medium~ locally born, overseas educated
    3) most expensive~ overseas born, overseas educated

    I went to Union hospital and saw Dr. Ng. It was about $700 incl ultrasound.
    I also saw a local Dr. in Mei Foo - he`s apparently a gyno - are they all ob/gyns or just gynos. Anyway, I saw him relating to my baby - he`s also got a child`s health certificate. His cost is $270. PM me if you are interested for his contact # to call and find out more.

    i believe that most are both, OBs and GYNs as OBs deal with pregnancy and GYNs deal with women's medicine. many times these are inextricably linked.
