I would probably make an appointment otherwise you could be waiting around a long time :)

Yeah you might be right! With my dr. back home I used to make appointments 2 months ahead and still wait 2 hours hah... it was so annoying, but she was a great doctor.

I just saw Dr Cheng at #256 Zhongshan North Road Section 6 last Friday. His office hours are 3.30-5.30 I think, but call to double check. I got there at 3 and waited till 4 to see him, even though I was the 3rd one there.

I asked to make an appt for this week, and got one for 4.30, but was told there are 3 people ahead of me so there will be a wait.

I was like waitaminit, isn't an appointment to reserve your spot for a certain time to be seen by the doctor? How different is that from just showing up during office hours? Well, I did not get an answer.

He was nice, spoke English well, and was very gentle. I would have no problem having his as my ob or gyno, and all of mine have always been male. I hear he delivers at that hospital in Tianmu, Veteran General is it?

Hi all, i'm 7 weeks pregnant, i want to go for a first check in a week or two and I don't know where to go yet. i will only stay in Taiwan until February so I don't care about the childbirth facilities, but I would like to do a nuchal test. Did anybody do this here? Does every lady doctor do it?

thanks!

Lady doctors do it as a matter of course. So do men doctors. They won't do it for another month or two. 11-13 weeks is the time for such a thing. Any hospital will do it.

Re: OB recommendation for older (35+) woman

You have to go through PCC and she is US trained, speaks perfect English and Mandarin, is very joyful, puts you at ease immediately, has 3 kids of her own, will also give a lot of other advice not just OB (she is the one who got me to check my sugar levels).

She is really competent but I don't know if she specialises in 'over 35'......she's a good doctor!! What I like about her, is that she explains every thing to you during an exam!

Good luck.


y baby's birth was helped by Dr. Ling Pei Yin from Taiwan Adventist Hospital. She is a professional, and a mother herself, especially expert in ultrasonography. Speaks at least English and Chinese (maybe also Spanish). Many of people I know who are 35+ go to her for GYN, and many people I know (maybe not 35+) go to her for OB.


One more recommendation for Dr. Ling at the Adventist's PCC. Really awesome doctor, energetic and engaged. Really reassuring and 100 per cent on the ball. Can confirm she speaks Spanish, too. :grin:
