    Going public, but which private doc to see for scan?

    Hi,
    I am going public but want to see a private doc for a scan this week. Didn't have a good experience with a private doc in my first pregnancy, this time round just looking for a doctor who is happy to see someone going public. Don't care if it is it one of the top name doctors, just a doctor who is caring and gives some time! In central area preferably (or tts).

    I used Dr. Alexander Doo for my private scans. He didn't mind that I was going public and was very helpful throught the pregnancy. His office is always quite busy though and sometimes you have to wait a while for your appointment but he was very thorough and I never felt rushed once I did get inside the office!

    I had a very good experience with Patrick Chan. He would coordinate my tests etc with the public hospital and told me which I could get done for free with the hospital (so he wouldn't do them if I could get them done for free), and which additional ones I could have with him. He would coordinate those additional tests so that I could have the results available before my next hospital appointment. I ended up only seeing him until I was 17 weeks since I had pregnancy complications which were beyond his expertise (had to see a specialist "prenatal diagnostician") but even with that situation, he was very sensitive and exactly what I felt a doctor should be. Was a shame to stop seeing him, but by then I just had too many appointments... would definitely go back if I ever have a third child. The wait time wasn't ridiculous either - although I've heard he's getting more popular these days. I saw him about 2.5 yrs ago.

    My baby is 2 mth old & I saw Professor Felix Wong throughout my pregnancy.
    I delivered at QEH & as above, there were no issues with seeing him & coordinating visits at the public hospital.
    He is in Central Building, Pedder St. ph: 3905 3905

    Thanks for the suggestions, I ended up seeing Dr Edmund Hon and he was fantastic.

    I love Dr. Ma Ching Yee. She is very courteous and assuring. She is popular with locals not expats. Glad that my friend recommended her. :)

    I personally didn't like Patrick Chan that much but he was definitely cheaper than other private doctors. He did my downs screening for 2400 HKD in total as I recall, 900 for scan and 1500 for blood test, but he didn't automatically offer any print outs of the scan and I just got emailed my results by his reception with no explanation and no follow up. Could have done it at the public hospital for free.
