We first went to visit Dr Lee for advice after having tried unsuccessfully to conceive for about a year. Dr Lee first conducted checks for us to check if there are any medical problems that could affect conception and then counselled us with advice on matters such as timing and psychology. His counselling worked and shortly after, we conceived successfully.
Throughout my pregnancy, Dr Lee was very patient and personable. No matter how long my list of questions was or how weird the questions, he addressed them all and did not just wave them away. He was very pragmatic and never suggested or recommended any unnecessary expensive tests and checks. Beyond medical advice, Dr Lee also touched on softer issues like the stress of handling the baby, the role of the husband etc (all with a touch of humor). We always looked forward to our gynae visits.
PeiXin (the staff nurse) is another gem. She is friendly and considerate. If she gauges that the wait will be long, she will tell us to go for a meal first. When my water bag broke, it was raining heavily and I was rather panicky and dazed. PeiXin ran out and ensured that I have an umbrella and am alright to go home and prepare to go to the hospital.
At the hospital, despite our best efforts, I was unable to deliver vaginally and decided to go for caesarean operation after 34 hours. Throughout our extended stay in hospital (extended due to own preference), Dr Lee visited almost every day. I am tremendously grateful to him for having taken such good care of me (and my boy) throughout my pregnancy.
With such personal touches, we were never made to feel like just another patient case file number. I will not hesitate to recommend Dr Lee to any of my friends and I look forward to consulting him again once I’m ready for “my next adventure” (as Dr Lee puts it) as well as for regular check-ups. We feel that Doctor Lee is more than just a gynae, he goes beyond dispensing medical advice to give us good counsel on a wide range of matters that concerns conception, pregnancy and childbirth. He is truly a gem!
