Hi,

I am planning a trip to Kuching this weekend for a medical check-up for my daugther. She is 6 years old and has been have cough and flu for a few months. I went to a local Ear, Nose and Throat Specialist in Indonesia who said that my daughter has an allergy.

I am not sure whether I should see a Paediatric or an Ear, Nose and Throat Specialist. Can anyone recommed a good one in Kuching?

Thanks for the info Resuree, I was hoping for references on doctors rather than hospitals. Personally I prefer Normah since they seems to have better facilities than Timberland.

i think you should bring her to see a paediatrician since she is only 6 years old. ear infection like otitis media is common in children, paediatricians will never miss it.

ENT like ophthalmologist tend to narrow their differential diagnoses. one case i heard was a patient complaint of blur vision of the eyes and went to see an ophthalmologist, end up treating just the symptoms (as they thought it is merely due to the eye) but the actual cause was a brain tumor impinging on optic nerves.

Actually a good GP or physician can also diagnose better as they think wide.

Doctor Wong Howe Tung from Timberland Hospital. His clinic is the first on the left. He is very experienced and very skilful ENT specialist.

Don't go through the main entrance to see a doctor. You will only be referred to Dr. Wong after seeing the general doctor. Go straight to Dr. Wong.

I have lost the sense of smell, a rather rare nose problem, back in 1990s. I went to Normah a few times. They can't diagnose my problem and they think I am fine (even think I am pretending). But Dr. Wong prescribed me a very strong prescription. He asked me to return in 3 months time. I did. He is very thorough ... but you have to mind the long queue. Make sure you make appointment well in advance. He spent close to 40min on me. He asked me to return again in 6 months time. I did not. I recovered my sense of smell, so I don't think I need to see him again. I highly recommend him to anyone... but mind the queue and have a bit of patience while waiting. Thats all I can say.

Thanks for the reference, someone else recommended Dr. Wong as well, but we went to see Dr. Siew today. She is a paeditrician, and diagnose my daughter as having an allergy and mild astma. So apparently nothing to do with ENT
