First Appointment as FPP in Hospital Putrajaya

This FPP thing is really great. I get treated even better than when I went for my appointment in K*J. I spent less than 2 hours (and the first 45 minutes was spent looking for parking...hmm, maybe the Hospital should consider special parking space for FPP *kidding*).

I walked up straight to the counter; explained that I'm an FPP and have an appointment scheduled with Dr. Hamidah and I was immediately ushered to another counter to complete the registration and pay RM110 (new case and registration fee).

I was asked to go directly to the obgyn counter and when I gave the nurse my card, she immediately asked me to weigh myself and took my blood pressure. Wow, no waiting? Hehe... On a side note, I gained 2.5kgs in two weeks!! I blame the Raya foods ;p

And then, I went to have my urine checked, and again...no queue? What? Is this really the same hospital where I spent almost 8 hours last two weeks?

I was politely asked to have a seat and wait for my turn to see the doctor as she was swamped with appointments today. I sat for a good 15 minutes and my name was called. Now, this is where it gets tricky.

I went to the hospital with a full tummy, hence a very good mood. I am a patient with a normal pregnancy case, and I myself didn't have anything extraordinary to ask. So, when I entered the room and the Doctor is still examining the other patient and at the same time, asking me conditions about my health, it doesn't bug me as much as it should. Maybe it did piss off the other patient, but I was somewhat okay with it.

The doctor asked me to go to a different room for ultrasound scan and I lie down on the bed for 3 minutes before the doctor came. She performed the scan, and told me everything looks good, the baby's head is where it is supposed to be, and at 36 weeks, my baby weighs 2.8kg. *Sigh* Guess she's gonna be huge like her big sister...

All in all, I wasn't disappointed nor was I delighted by the FPP service. For RM110 (new case + registration), it was okay. Although I do have to admit my opinion may differ if I went there hoping for some one-on-one time with my gynae. Or if I went there with an empty stomach. These days, my mood is in exact correlation with the amount of food I consume. Full stomach = happy me.

yantie, i dulu pun FPP with dr hamidah. mula2 tu i pun mcm rasa consultation session dia mcm tak brapa best sbb ada patient lain dlm tu n jumpa doc kejap sgt (tapi dah kata pun GH kan, camtu la kekdahnye ;p) but towards due date, doc akan spend more time on consultation with us. overall, i'm satisfied with dr hamidah & the FPP thingy :)
u bila due?

kita pun patient dr hamidah..dah 2 kali bersalin..so far puas hati (review dan rupa bilik 300 ada kt blog)

cumanya masa bersalin anak no 2 dr ada hal (xsure pe..but rasa mcm some family emergency kot)..so dr hazim yg sambut...tapi the next day dr hamidah dtg check sume

agree with fatih, dr check lebih details towards end pregnancy..sbbnya my 1st son dr hamidah detect kidney dia besar sikit - tu dari masa scan..and till now still follow up with hosp

Hi, thank you for sharing your experience about this. May I know if you have to produce any reference letter to register as FPP? Can you please share what is the process and procedure?
