    Looking for a GP

    I am looking for a doctor referrals (GP). I have AIA health insurance so preferably in network but I don't mind spending out of my own pocket for a good doctor. I went to St Paul Hospital before which is supposed to be one of the top private hospital but all the general and specialist consultations I had there were extremely rushed (2-3 minutes in and out !!).

    Sadly you're not going to get a long consultation when the hospitals are trying to optimise for revenue.

    I have had good experience with the Sanatorium but they are not in the AIA network and may or may not be fully covered by your plan.

    2-3 mins!!!! Perhaps, your case wasn't one that needed a specialist level consultation?

    Well I was directed to a specialist by the GP of the same hospital ... I'd like to have a GP that knows me, takes the time and has a case on me

    besides GP consultation cost I am afraid of the imaging, blood test and medicine cost in Sanatorium if they need to do X rays and whatnot
