    Dr Jimmy Mak? at Hongkong Baptist Hospital?

    hi Anyone Have any experience with Dr Jimmy Mak at Hk Baptist hospital?
    What is he like? his charges?

    Is Hongkong baptist a good hospital to give birth in?
    anyone stay in the standard ( 6 - 12 beds) or standard plus 3 beds, semi private beds ?

    is it true if u are in a shared room, you cant bring the baby in - and hubbie cant hold baby? only view via the glass window?

    any information - greatly appreciated!

    Don't know anything about the maternity wards in the Baptist hospital, but my husband was in their twice for an operation. He was on a private, 6 person ward. We were both impressed with the hospital.

    Hi Ninimo -- It looks like we are taking similar paths! I found this thread looking up Dr. Mak.
    I've seen him twice for pre-natal check-ups, since my case is still considered (fingers crossed) high-risk.
    I think he charges HK $250 for consultation, HK $700 for scan. I also got some medicine, so my bill came to a little over HK $1,000.
    So far, he seems fine. A little brisk and perfunctory, but also moderate. He's not one of those scare-you-to-death doctors who lecture you on everything that might go wrong.
    He just told me to take it easy. Eating right, resting and taking my meds is all I can do. I feel better with him.
    I went up to Baptist's maternity wards (which are not as new and nice as the ward Dr. Mak is in) but they were SO busy that they couldn't show me any rooms or spend time with me. I'll wait a few more weeks and, if all is stable, ask them more questions about delivery, etc.
    Good luck!

    Hi Ninimo, Congrats to you, too! Who knows? Maybe we'll bump into each other at the waiting room.
    I switched doctors bc my first is mostly a fertility specialist. He also seems to prefer C-sections, and I'm hoping for natural birth. His nurse tried to push me to book a C-section the day of my positive pregnancy test.
    This doctor is very cautious (maybe right for some) but we were freaked by his negative diagnosis and prescription of lots of injections and bedrest.
    Don't get me wrong. I'm grateful for doctor #1 for getting us preggers. But Dr. Mak seems more relaxed, which suits us better.
    We always thought we'd deliver at Baptist, so why not do all the prenatal stuff at the same place?
    Transfering records wasn't a big deal -- the nurse just made copies.
    Wow, your sister is fertile! :) Good luck to you both!

    congrats to both of you! Although I am not with Dr Mak, but I had myself booked a bed at Baptist too! Wonder you can share with us more when your sis give birth after 2 weeks, ninimo? Any info will be good! Cheers!
