teoh is one of the big hitters at the lindo. need to get in there early to snag him. many complain they feel as though they are on a factory line, doesn't give you time etc. not what i would want for my money.
I can also really recommend Guy Thorpe-Beeston, who also does deliveries at St Mary's. Not only is he excellent at the technical stuff (he saw us through a very tricky delivery), but he is very genuine and kind. One thing that has always stuck in my mind is watching him, after I had projectile vomited mid-delivery, immediately start to help the nurse strip the bed. I may be cynical, but I suspect that most consultants would have just stood by and made the nurse feel that it was beneath their dignity to help.
I just had my baby with mr wright. When i booked, he was one of the very few available as i booked late and so was obviously apprehensive that he may not be that good. But he was EXCELLENT !!! I could'nt have been happier. I firmly be;ieve i escaped a last minute c-sec only bcz of him and my baby was delivered by forceps instead. All in all, he was fantastic...i would definitly recommend.
Hi everyone I'm 30 weeks pregnant with my first baby.. And going to do c section with doctor Teoh in the Lindo wing.. Has anyone done c section with doctor Teoh? He is not very caring but I have heard from a friend that he is good with c section her scar was tiny and low... I'm very nervous:-(
sariiii, I can highly recommend Mr Teoh. I moved to London from the US midway through my pregnancy and started seeing Teoh at around week 26. Mr Teoh came highly recommended to me by a friend who delivered with him earlier in the year.
My pregnancy was relatively uncomplicated, though I was considered "high risk" due to my age (40) and previous surgeries (myomectomy and c-section). I found Mr Teoh to be highly skilled and professional but also caring and personable. He always took time for questions and always asked if I had any concerns, etc. Since this was my second pregnancy I didn't need a lot of hand holding--I felt I knew what to expect. My biggest concern was having a skilled surgeon I could trust, especially since I was in a foreign country without many friends or family near. I felt comfortable with Mr Teoh from the start. He has a very calm demeanor and light sense of humor and clearly at the top of his field.
He was great in the operating room--explained what was happening and was very reassuring to both me and my husband. He checked on me daily in the hospital (in the US I did not see my doctor each day) and always made sure I was well cared for by the hospital staff (I was!).
To answer your question about the scar...he went in through my old scar from my previous c-section. Despite having a larger baby this time he was able to minimize the incision size...I don't think it's any bigger, and it is healing very well (I am on day 3 post c-section).
Just to reiterate...I did find him to be very caring. Knowing that I had just moved from the US, he always asked how I was settling in and often made recommendations for restaurants and ways to meet people and build a social/support network. I highly recommend him without reservation--I always felt I was in good hands, and that peace of mind meant everything to me. Best of luck to you!
