    Smile System of appointment in clinics and hospitals

    Hi All,

    Hope you're doing well.

    I want to know if there are any clinics where I can meet the doctor without prior appointments of a day or more with reasonable fee(under 200HKD).


    Please give me suggestion to consult Endrocrinologist for consulting regarding my pre-existing Thyroid issue.

    Thanks!

    You might find something through the HA General or specialist OP clinics. Worth reading through their site. I'm not sure if you mentioned you've gone through this route in your previous posts..

    Unfortunately most specialist healthcare through the govt system is a multi-month to multi-year wait.

    After trying to get the appointment for government hospitals many times through booking via phone, I am unable to get an appointment. I have already tried for over 2 months, still unsuccessful to get an appointment.

    I visited one govt. hospital last month in A&E dept, it didn't solve my case at all. It was wastage of time for me to wait for my turn to come and then no solution.

    It is said to make the appointment 24 hours before consulting the doctor in govt. hospitals.

    Yes you can book a specialist at reasonable fees in : St Paul hospital , St Theresa hospital and request a referral letter to be on waiting list for public care.
    The cost of medication & lab test is higher in private though. But you may find cheaper medication in pharmacies (eg: Fanda).
    Good luck

    under $200

    See a GP which will cost you more than $200, ask him/her to write a referral letter, with that letter you can submit application to book SOPD (special out patient clinic), they will give you a date to see the doctor (it maybe a year later )

    Yes, I called to the Mongkok center but they didn't respond.

    How many hours before should I call to book an appointment to see the doctor in ftuclinic?
