    Question Anyone know a good ENT for a broken nose?

    Long story short , I broke my nose while sparring

    I went to see a doctor at a government hospital A&E unit
    After few hours of waiting, they prescribed panadol(no joke, nothing else), no patch on nose to stablize it, and a referral letter to an ENT(whom they said will require an appointment and waiting time of 7-10 days, I read if you leave a broken nose for too long then you cannot fix it using the pinch and push it back to position aka I would need a surgery then…)

    so can anyone recommend me a private ENT specialist who actually cares about patients in hk and does the job well for broken noses from boxing…

    Sorry to hear.

    Try going to the emergency outpatient sections of the Adventist Hospital (Tsuen Wan and Wan Chai).

    Being an adventist hospital, the charges for Sunday are the same as weekdays (Saturday and Friday evening are more expensive).

    They start you off with an emergency GP who will act as your case manager, arranging the relevant specialists, diagnostics and operations. $500 for the GP. Thereafter, it depends on what is done and if / how long you need to be hospitalised for.

    Sorry to hear that.

    I recommend Dr. Hui Yau. Will be pricey like all doctors but I had a good experience with him.

    My son had swollen lymph node and adenoids and saw one of those big chain doctors under insurance. They stuck the camera up his nose, never took any photos, and after 10 minutes said you can have surgery next week to remove them and got out th calendar. Was given no time to think.

    My son's paediatrician recommended Dr. Yau who I think. use to be head of the department of HKU for his speciality.
    He saw my son and said don't do the operation. Not recommended. He doesn't need it.
    He could have have pushed me towards an operation but he didn't. Very ethical.
