Does anyone know of a good (and I mean REALLY good) clinic or hospital that specialises (and really SPECIALISES... not some bunch of fuck-up scamsters) in dermatology for little 'uns?
My 1-year old baby had atopic dermatitis and the doctors at BNH seem to be drawing at straws again. Don't even MENTION Pyathai as an alternative -- that hospital is utter shite.
So.. BNH out of the question... are there any places left? Or better yet, anyone know a specific practitioner? If so, please PM a name or, if you suggest a hospital, post here.
I wish I could afford to make just a dollar a year.

Turns out this clinic (far, far away) we were going to isn't too bad afterall. And whaddya know... the doctor is from Bumrungrad. The thing was -- my wife wasn't applying the medication properly as directed (from this clinic or probably even from the others) and whenever I'd go to this clinic she would be yakking away with the doc and I was 90% clueless as to what was being discussed. Well yesterday I went there with my sister-in-law (she drove the car) and I was able to have a decent conversation with the doctor. To make a long story short, he knew his stuff -- when presented with information I had researched he was well on the spot with his diagnosis. He was also quite thorough with his instructions. Makes me wonder -- if he had given the same sort of information to my wife ... how the ------- could she have NOT followed it through?? He was well-versed in English too... which in itself is a rarity in this country. To say the least, he was reassuring. Only problem was -- if I hadn't been asking the questions, he probably wouldn't have been explaining things. But that's the problem with most people in this country -- they DON'T ask questions, and they DON'T do their homework before seeing the doctor. Hence I could probably honestly say it wasn't the doc's fault -- afterall, why go into something that the parents wouldn't understand/or give a shit about anyways?
Goddamn. You do this yourself and you get better results. Makes me wonder if it is the same case at BNH? Perhaps they weren't grasping at straws? Perhaps they gave my wife specific instructions which she just utterly failed to follow?
For example -- this doc gave me two little canisters of medication: one to be applied twice a day for the first week, and the other once a day for the second week. And then after that, I was instructed to use the stuff that BNH had given, which was apparently the same stuff that I looked up (something similar to protopic [tacromilus]). The medicine from BNH wasn't working coz IT WASNT BEING APPLIED PROPERLY. What my folks have been doing was just choosing whichever medication they thought was right. There were specific ------ing instructions afterall -- and of course, when I ask my wife, the only thing I get is "put this on" rather than the same specific instructions the doctors had given.

Well... this is EXACTLY the reason I'm trying to persevere more in looking after my kids' needs by MYSELF.
(still need to have someone to drive me around the place though)
