The Pinned List Of Doctors Needs Updates

Recommended Posts

Khruumaiyai    0

Hi,

Dr Siri (Dermatologist) - also has a clinic on Thursday afternoon, 2pm-4pm, clinic at Suan Dok - 12th Floor Sriphat building. No appointment needed, you can just show up. I saw him there last month, quite a big queue but I was happy to wait to get expert advice.

He can't do operations or freezing at the clinic at Moon Muang Road, so if you're needing that you'll need to go to Sriphat.

Great list, thanks!

Pete

Right on Pete - he removed a lump from my neck during (after) his OP clinic at Sripat, quite painless and you can hardly see the scar.

As you say, he's well worth waiting for. thumbsup.gif

It may be good to include a Thallasemia specialist as it is seems so prevalent here.

My wife has been consulting with a Dr Taratorn at the RAM for a number of years, I don't know too many details about him but he seems to be very thorough and we have had good results every time.

Another point is that Dr Tawachai on Loi Kroh can surgically remove suspected skin cancer lesions at his clinic and have a pathology report back in a few days reporting the status of the lesion.

Here is what I don't understand:

Some self-sacrificing and generous fellow who had a bad experience with a pediatrician took the time to create and incredibly well-designed Thai doctor-rating site called MyThaiDoctor. When I last saw it, it had been around for a few years and there was no adverting or promotion on it. And it did not seem that many people (at all) were taking advantage of it.

Why? This could be so very useful and consumer-empowering if people would just use it.

Thank you for bringing this site to our attention however, some questions require answers:

I can't get the site to load, if I could perhaps some of my questions would be unecessary, perhaps others can try and comment?

So, does the site cover just Chiang Mai or is it nationwide, the list in this thread is focussed on Chiang Mai and its expat community?

Secondly, is the site truly independant and how can we be certain that is the case. Without even seeing the site I have great difficulty imagining it would be, why, because this is Thailand where very locals do very little for free.

Thirdly, is the list current, we compiled the CM list a year ago and already it needs updating, you mention your list having been adround for a few years?

Perhaps if we can get clarification on the above then we will find a way to make the two lists cohabitate sucessfully, there's certainly no point in reinventing the wheel but lets just be certain that wheel is round and not square.

I tried to log into the MyThaiDoctors (MTD) site and for the second day it wouldn't load, I then did some digging on the web and came across a blog site where the author of MTD wrote a short opiece, in it wrote:

"Hi There,

I’m Sam from mythaidoctors. I sort of lost the interest in the website after moving back to the US. Still I want to update the physician database as the current one is four years old already.

Sam"

So it seems that MRD has largely fallen into direpair and is no longer used as extensively as it might be and that's a shame, let's hope that TV members pull their collective fingers out in the near future so that the same thing doesn't happen to our pined list!

I continue to be nervous about MTD since I notice (from the internet menue) that there's an entire section on Bumrungrad and that smacks of sponsorship, in addition it looks as if the author of the site owns a whole series of medical websites, al of which are fee earning http://www.statmyweb...s/dr.prasertsri and http://website.informer.com/mythaidoctors.com

Finally, to answer the question raised by Bouffant in his earlier post, the MTD site is not used because:

it will not load and is not generally accessible;

it's content is out of date, since 2008;

it is a national list and is not Chinag Mai specific;

there is a strong possibility the list is sponsored and is therefore not impartial.

Hmm- Interesting what member chang mai found at the "MyThaiDoctors" site.

When I used it almost 2 years ago, I posted all my doctor reviews which included both laudatory and some truly scathing reviews of Bumrungrad doctors. At that time I saw no censorship or favoritism generated by the site.

I did see that the site was barely used, which I thought would discourage the site owner from maintaining it, particularly if he had already moved out of Thailand.

At that time it did seem like the search and software could be made use of freely by consumers despite any affiliation by the website owner. .

Popular and easy to use consumer review sites TripAdvisor and Yelp.com (in the US) both accept advertising, and will bump their advertisers to the top of lists like google will, and Yelp will inform a paying business owner whenever there is a review so if it is negative they can respond immediately if they so wish. Yet both sites work wonderfully to empower the consumer to quickly sort through many businesses, and 50 reviews don't lie (if you read them and use your head) whereas I find it easy to determine if a review site or even a few reviews are a plant.

On this site (God bless this site) you have to dig hard for comments about doctors-particularly if you want suggestions to find a doctor and are not researching a given doctor- and most comments are are years old.

When I used MyThaiDoctor 2 years ago after some medical work in Thailand, I thought, "Boy, the owner is going to stop paying the webhosting bill for this site as it is so poorly used by consumers." If the site was a front to make some docs appear like the best, it would certainly seem like the owner would have been engaged more actively in that, but the site was just plain dead. Maybe it has changed since then.

Bumrungrad has at least one paid employee to monitor ThaiVisa and respond quickly to any complaints. (I'm not a Bumrungrad fan, to say the least. Terrible experience there.)

Not to argue with you chain mai, and the site might have changed since I used it. It is just most frustrating to have to dig so hard on this site, or make newbie comments like "can somebody recommend a good doctor for..." to which usually only a few people will respond, and for which there are is already info on this site but most will be too lazy to dig it out.

There is a site called Qype.com for reviews of anything, anywhere. Great site but nobody knows about it so it doesn't have the critical mass one needs.

I just feel consumer rating sites are so very important to consumer empowerment.

I couldn't agree with you more on this point, it's a shame that MTD has fallen into disrepair otherwise we would have no need to try and develop our own list. Re; your point about Tripadvisor and similar: TA had the potential to be truly great until it became tainted with paid for and owner based reviews, my fear with a MTD or similar site is that the same thing happens and that would be disasterous for all of us.

I would urge you to continue to participate in this topic, you've found something that no other member has mentioned in the past year of trying to complie the list hence your input will be most welcome and much appreciated.

I now have a list of the doctors and senior medical staff at Rajavej Hospital and it runs to three pages (!), rather than post all the names blindly I'll hang on to the list and provide names as possible candidates when people are looking for specific disciplines or doctors specifically at Rajavej. As and when we get individual references from members confirming the quality of the refferal I'll put it forward for inclusion on the pinned list.

Do you know DR uunnh (nickname) who looked after my shoulder following an accident. Excellent physician with superb bed manners?
