Cantonese speaking doctor or walk-in?

Hi all,

Anyone know of a good, Cantonese speaking doctor accepting new patients, or a walk-in clinic with Cantonese speaking doctors? My dad's tired of going to his old school Chinatown doc.

Any info is appreciated. TIA

I went to Dr. Vienna Ng
4060-8171 Ackroyd Rd, Richmond, BC V6X 3K1
(604) 276-8859

at the time I started going to see her (8 years ago) she was accepting new patients

Younger female doctor. She was nice. My grandparents didn't have a problem communicating to her in Cantonese

I have been to 5 different ones.
The one at the Richmond Sushi mall is by far the best.
It's close by the coffee cafe place (across from coco hut)

1) Professional. You can book a time.
2) No tickets. There are ones in Richmond which he'll only see 50 people a day, you take a number and wait. Fuck that shit.
3) Privacy. Seriously, this is about doctors & medical stuff, privacy is #1. I have been to one where you just sit about 5 feet from the next patient waiting behind you.
FUCK, I don't want hear about the guy in front of me is having hemorrhoids or if let others know that my 26 yr old girl wnats to have a kid and we wnat to get some good chinese medicine to regulate her cycle etc.
4) Cost. To be honest, you get what you pay for. I have seen $10 dollars versus $20. That part is fine. I have seen ones where you pay $30 dollars for medication versus $15 so you have to pick and choose.

Only thing I have to say is the medication is not cheap. I can't justify paying $85 dollars per week and have to take 10+ doses. That's really steep.
5) Professionalism. I have seen ones working from a grocery store which is fine, but they haven't washed their white doctor's jacket for 4 weeks, doesn't turn on heat in the office and everything on her shelf is dusty.
6) Knowledge. I have seen a doctor who has an assistant in training. He looks at you and he asks the girl beside him to write the medication, he just adds a few things here and there and verifies it.

Walk in clinic at Aberdeen Centre isn't too bad. I have a family doctor, but when she is too busy, and it is something minor, I just make an appointment at Aberdeen. Usually can get an appointment the same day.

All the doctors there are Chinese, and I think most of them speak Cantonese.

Hope that helps.

i changed my family doctor in east van to the one in aberdeen because they are so easily accessible

my family doctor I had since I was born is aging as well.. in his late 60's and is retiring soon. I don't think he kept up with the new stuff in medicine and the new doc in Aberdeen (Dr. Ng) is in his 30s-early 40s

Easy to get prescription drugs from this doctor and it is downstairs in the same mall. I want a doctor that is real, tells me the fucking low down, and no bullshit cover ups.
Hey guys,

Can someone tell good or unusual dating spots? Or what was your the most unusual date? THanks for sharing!
