Ratings for Dr. Robert Chua
Before my first appointment with Dr. Chuas' office I read reviews here and was a little concerned about wait times. I worked up until 38 weeks and taking time off for appointments was difficult. Yes, wait times can exceed an hour but after having an emergency c section performed by Dr. Chua himself, not a doctor I had never met before, I can say with surety waiting an hour or more because the doctor is busy delivering someone else's baby (that will be you one day in the hospital! ) is worth it! The receptionist is organized, pleasant and helpful, nurse Kathryn is friendly and moves things along, and Dr.Chua himself is knowledgeable and reassuring. Sometimes at appointments it feels like he doesn't take his time with you, but in the hospital he was quick to make the right decisions for the health of my baby and even though I did not want to have a c section I see now how critical it was and could not be more relieved Dr. Chua was who I was referred to to have my first baby!
He is there when you need him! Day or night! Best doctor ever! Sometimes he runs late, but for the best Reason! When I got the contraptions the night before delivery he was in the hospital. In the morning he was there too. He quickly decided fo emergency c-section, and made the best decision for me and my baby! He made everything easy. I am recovering very well now..happy more than ever...
Dr. Chua is amazing! I wish I had of had him for my first 2 c-sections!. For appointments he does run late sometimes (you never know when labours going to hit) so he's late for good reasons it's reassuring that he will be there when you need him!
Best Doctor you could ask for to deliver your baby! Yes, he does run behind often for appointments but he is always there at the hospital when you need him, day or night. His appointments get backed up when he had to go for a delivery or an emergency c-section but when it's you at the hospital in labour, you'll be thankful he puts you first when it counts!
Had my first and (hopefully) last appointment with Dr Chua today. After waiting 1 hour and 45 minutes after my scheduled appointment time, he took 10 minutes fiddling with my chart and absent mindedly hmm-ing at my questions. One of which was whether or not he felt we needed another ultrasound given the baby's size. His response was 'We'll get one in a couple months' (I'm due in a little over 1). He put my file on a stack on the floor with literally dozens of others and told me that I need to book another appointment in 2 weeks. I don't understand how people can say he cares so much about his patients when he couldn't even be bothered to listen or look at me as we spoke and is double a triple booking patients - I personally heard two women check in for appointments at 300 and three other women check in for appointments at 330 while I sat there waiting for my 230 appointment. This is my first pregnancy with zero complications thus far and being treated like an inconvenience with no regard for questions/concerns I brought up leaves me hoping I'll never see him again.
Dr. Chua is amazing! I had him while pregnant with both of my children and he was always kind, answered questions, explained things well, and was empathetic. He delivered my first via c-section, saving both the baby and I and my second was an elected c-section. Both times he talked to me while having the epidural, held my hand, and reassured me everything was okay. Best gynaecologist ever!
