Bandar Puteri Puchong Gynae Visit

Our second visit to a gynae for our new baby was to a clinic in Bandar Puteri Puchong on Tuesday night. There are four doctors who are affiliated with various hospitals for delivery. The doctor we chose to consult performs his deliveries at Sunway Medical.

The clinic is located at the corner of a row of shops facing the six lane highway plying between Puchong and Putrajaya. It is also the row where the middle unit is a showroom for the new properties being developed behind this commercial area. A long flight of stairs lead up to the clinic, while an Indian coffee shop occupies the ground floor.

The walls of the clinic are sparsely populated with articles and advertisements. Lighting is fair but the choice of furniture and decor are ordinarily uninspiring. The corridor to the toilet is better lit, but is fairly maintained. The weighing scale is analog.

The clinic seems to take pride in their 3D/4D ultrasound scanning equipment, which we are not very fond of. We do not intend to use it often as we don't think frequent use is healthy to our baby. The machine looks quite sophisticated but probably not as good as the one in the posh clinic at KK Hospital in Singapore.

Our little one is now 4.2cm long! And wow, was she wiggling around!

We're pleased to know that she is developing well and is probably about 11 weeks old. This means that our expected delivery date may be in late February 2008 instead of March. We won't know for sure but we'll just let God take care of things.

However, the gynae isn't very comprehensive compared to the Pantai one. He kept asking us if we have any more questions. Standard procedure but not enough personal touch and comfort level. One important advantage these doctors have is that they are available after office hours on weekdays.

We have to continue searching as it is still very early. I must remember to get a ultrasound printout the next round...
