Every woman and teenage girl should have an OBGYN (obstetrician and gynaecologist) to care for the health of their reproductive system, including the provision of proper prenatal care during pregnancy.
When looking for an OBGYN, it is key to find someone not only accredited and experienced, but also someone who makes you feel comfortable and whose location and services are accessible enough to you. Consider the following factors during your search:
Know their Credentials and Experience
Knowing the credentials and experience of the doctor will help you determine if he or she is qualified and seasoned enough to treat a full range of women’s health issues.
Preference of Gender
In some cases, patients prefer to have a female OBGYN, while others do not have a preference.
Check for Referrals
You may obtain recommendations from your primary care provider, family, friends, as well as online sources.
Check for Availability
How far out is the doctor normally booked? Is he or she able to tend to emergencies; and do their normal operating hours work for your schedule?
Location & Facilities
Identify if your preferred gynae clinic in Singapore is easily accessible via public transport, or is relatively near where you live or work, so that you can drop by conveniently.
Good Communication and Personality
Your OBGYN should be someone who is approachable, professional and reassuring, so that you feel comfortable working with him or her even with sensitive matters relating to your reproductive health.
