    Seeking recommendation for pediatrician

    This is my first post as my family and I are moving to HK in 2 weeks time. We will be based temporarily in Repulse Bay and I'm looking for a pediatrician to take my son, 3 years, to see.

    My son has a severe language delay and has been receiving therapy in London with a speech therapist, but we are concerned about his very slow progress and want to have him fully evaluated by a paed - preferably one specialising in developmental delay. We are worried that he has an underlying neurological reason for his language delay.

    Can anyone recommend a paed that I could take him to?

    I am also looking for a speech therapist specialising in language delay, and would appreciate any recommendations in this field also.

    Many thanks!

    I've found my paed to be excellent with developmental issues. Her name is Dr. Barbara Lam and her clinic is located on the 13th floor of Central Bldg in Central. The phone number for her clinic is 2156-3888

    My paediatrician seems pretty good although I don't know about development issues. I have a friend who is a speech therapist too, if you want either of their contact details you can PM me. Sharon

    Hi there - I'm sorry, but can't see how to send a PM. If you are able to message me then I could reply. New to this forum and not 100% sure how it all works yet!
