    Helper doctor visit

    Our helper is having some throat & ear related problem. We visited government hospital 3 times and we are asked to go meet other specialist. She got Year 2022 appointment from government specialist. can you please recommend which doctor she should visit next? we have her helper medical insurance and we are looking to resolve her health issue soon.
    Guidance and experience will certainly help.

    what did the doctors says for the 3 visits, seems like it not a serious issue to be given an appointment for 2022

    Edit: just to add, i keep getting ear infections in either ear so my mrs helped me set up and see the ENT specialist, he checked both my ears out, said one of them needs a little bit of cleaning so he got the suction gear out and cleaned my ear, wrote me a prescription for ear drops, I asked him why my ears keep getting infections and he told me to keep water out of my ears LOL

    That depends on your helper insurance. Some of them only cover the rates at the government, some of them cover outpatient visits at panel doctors. Check your policy. You can always just have her go to a private doctor and pay the invoice yourself. A visit on the Kowloon side shouldn't cost more than $1000.

    Top bit of advise that, just asked wife and she cups her ears to avoid water in her ears. Learn something everyday.

    Can be a little difficult when swimming. And does she never wash her ears then?
