Pediatricians in Penang

Living in Penang with 3 young children we often have to make visits to the doctors. The most common cause having to get vaccinated. Since my elder 2 daughters had some of their vaccines in our home country which had a different schedule compared to the one followed in Malaysia we had to make sure we were getting the right vaccine at the right time. After a few calls we decided that Hope Children's Hospital was our best bet and is just a stones throw away from where we are. Its a nice little place that any child would love to go to, of course before they realize they are there for a vaccine :) There is a little play area and lovely fish pond that can keep any child happy.

For the past few years we have been seeing the same doctor at Hope, he was quite friendly. Few weeks ago the elder 2 had to get a vaccine again, now that they are bigger it is a bit more difficult to get them to the clinic. But this time they didn't know that they were going for a vaccine, and the regular doctor was not available! The doctor who we met this time was very friendly, and believe it or not my 2 girls didn't even know they got a vaccine until we told them! The doctor gave them a vitamin and asked them to chew it and while talking to them he gave them the vaccine. We were very satisfied with how things turned out. Thank you Dr Chew.
