    looking for a good pediatrician

    I'm wondering who the current favorites are? We have seen Dr. Joe Chan, with whom we got along fine but just had a difference of opinion on some things and previously Dr Thondup, but he was quite busy. My daughter is rarely sick, we just need someone for well checks and immunizations and to be easily accessible for a sick appointment if needed.

    Tell me your favorites, and if you have contact info as well that would be great!

    Dr. Barbara Lam is fantastic - patient, thorough, we never feel rushed by her, and an all around great doctor. On top of that, her nurses are fantastic and great with helping out with little questions I may have in-between appointments. Only thing is she is quite expensive - but worth every penny in my opinion. She's also very good with developmental issues. Her clinic is in central building next to landmark, 13th fl and the phone number of her clinic is 2156-3888.

    Also forgot to say that I can almost always get appointments on the day I call or next day for illnesses though the wait is sometimes a bit long in those cases. But that's to be expected. I'm just glad I can get in to see her when my kids need her!

    Agree with everything FutureHKmom has said about Dr Barbara Lam.

    We had Dr. Thondup and also had Dr. Leo Chan in Manning House in Central. He's definitely more local, but his team of nurses/staff are fantastic!
