He sees patients tomorrow since 2PM.
Really good doctor and specialists in infections and pregnancies.
Hopefully Adventist will work out for you and you'll get some relief. I also suggest some yogurt with live bacteria to restore normal balance.
Bernice also also office hours on Wednesday and Friday afternoons
There are natural options for yeast infections as well that I find work wonderfully but of course, dependant on your own comfort level.
Diluted Tree Tea Oil on a tampon works very quickly
Garlic cloves inserted vaginally also work
Check with your doctor and do some of your own research but I have personally found these natural cures for yeast infections very effective.
Did you make it to the Dr. yet? I don't know how to say baking soda in Chinese but you can buy normal baking soda at welcome and the big box at Costco.
The garlic cloves don't sting as long as they are unnicked and can be changed several times a day. I have used both the garlic cloves and the tree tea oil and have found instant relief, so have a couple of girlfriends. It is so easy and works so well that we no longer need to go to the doctors for this.
I buy my tea tree oil online at http://www.iherb.com
Greta website. Didn't check it earlier.
They all speak English at Adventists.
They dont work on Saturdays. The rest days of the week they have a lunch break 12:00-14:00.
You can try emergency, you will see a doctor right away.
Hmmm I am a big fan of Adventists, but I never had any experience like you did. My husband was always with me during examinations.
That's true they ask about religion, but here it is different than in the West. They (Taiwanese) ask many questions, we wouldn't. It's cultural difference. Something we can only tolerate, but we can't change.
My husband was filling out many job applications and I heard him complaining about the questions (marital status, age, etc) and the requirement for a photo. But what can you do? Nothing.
The only thing about Adventists I dont like is that they dont work on Saturdays and this is religious thing. Again, we can't change it.
I am happy you liked Dr. Young and that your baby is well. These are the best news!
Good luck for you to find a hospital and doctor that will be close to your place and good to you
they didn't ask us about religion and if they did, i don't remember. However it does not matter really, good docs.
When I was having my c-section, the doc asked me if she could pray , so I said sure, although I was flustered, but that 10 secs 'Ofather thou art...' just calmed me and in retrospect, I'd rather a doc pray over my pregnant belly than go take a swig of whisky which a lot of them do.
That is very strange that they wouldn't let your husband see the ultrasound with you! Very strange indeed. I have never had a "religious" experience like that at Adventist during a procedure in all the time I have gone there. Well, I did have one doctor recommend praying to assist with healing, but he knew I was a Christian (and some studies do support him in that). I doubt he would have mentioned it if he hadn't known my beliefs.
As far as asking your religion...I have been asked my religion once at Adventist when I was admitted to the hospital for a procedure. Never in the doctor's office, so that seems a little different. In America, hospitals often DO ask your religious affiliation in case of emergencies. They have chaplains of various faiths on hand if there is a crisis and you want to be helped/prayed for by a minister, rabbi, priest, etc. Also, in the event of death, it helps to know beforehand what customs you might want followed, as some religions are very specific. And, of course, some religious faiths have restrictions on diet, or whether blood transfusions are allowed, etc., so they would be interested in that information.
I hope you find a closer clinic...that is a long way to go for care. I will ask around and see if anyone I know knows of anything. We have friends who live in Banqiao.
Loving Care Maternal Center a.k.a. the Hsinchuang Water Birth Center is probably closer to you than Adventists. If you do a search for Dr. Li and water birth on this forum, you'll find the address for her clinic, which is in Banqiao right next to a MRT stop not too far from the TRA Banqiao station. There are a few other doctors there besides Dr. Li, all OB/GYNs.
Ofcourse they will never ask you. I was just saying, that a doc praying before cutting my belly open is much better than a nervous doctor running to the bathroom for a gulp of alcohol
It was weird, lying their cold and naked with two docs on my side, me connected to machines and the doctor saying 'our father thou art in heaven..." with the anesthesia taking effect....surreal.
I too find the ultrasound thing funny, but like you say maybe on Sunday they do things differently!
