    a good pediatrician?

    anyone know of a pediatrician in kowloon that will actually delay giving loads of medicine when not necessarily required?
    i have read from the internet that for cold, best to let the kids drink plenty of water and take vitamin c, rest well and recover on their own. probably like 7 - 10 days, and if still not well, only see the doctor.
    when i was pregnant, i had cold and this doctor just recommended me to take plenty of rest, drink water. he didnt' give me any medicine, but i like this kind of 'style' , more natural. but sadly, can't find his clinic anymore, i think his clinic close down because he is not giving lots of medicines like most patients like it. maybe they feel, worth the cost paying if you get lots of medicines back?

    You may want to try Dr. Mark Chan at Central Building. My son is seeing him since birth.

    Our baby sees Richard Chiu in Melbourne Plaza. Excellent demeanor, and really loves kids.

    I agree. In my experience Mark Chan favours a more hands off approach and will not suggest medication unless really neccessary. He is based in the Central Building - the clinic is called "Children at 818".

    Highly recommend Dr. Alfred Tam 2526 6332. He's has a wonderful demeanor and very knowledgeable. He also doesn't suggest any medication if unnecessary.

    Good luck!

    Another vote for Richard Chiu, i was surprised as he changed my baby's nappy with poo. My helper was standing beside my baby ready to change the nappy, but he said he'll do it. He is good and not in a hurry to talk to.
