Q: English speaking gynecologist?

Does anyone know where I can find an English speaking gynecologist in Ningbo or Hangzhou? I see there's an OBGYN in Shanghai but I'd rather not travel there. But if I have to then I will. Has anyone been to the one in Shanghai? Ladies, what are your experiences with gynecologists here in China? Good or bad?

would not go near a gynecologist in China (or any other medical 'professional').

If you need this kind of examination or treatment, you are better off going in your home country.

mainly becasue you are likely to find one of the following:

1) incorrect diagnosis - i know this from a friends experience of China's health system.

2) someone who will prescribe 'medication' for the sake of a kick-back.

3) a 'professional' with a purient interest in non-Chinese bodies.

4) members of the public (or other random people) wandering in to the room during your examination.

5) your examination being recorded and posted online - this apparently happens very often with operations.

6) you will be extorted because you are foreign.

7) you will probably waste at least half a day waiting.

8) a combination of any of the above.


bottom line.

don't waste your time or money.

if you really care about your health, wait until you are back in your home country for any examination or treatment.


It is nearly the Lunar New Year so chances are you will be leaving the country anyway.


my bet is that some random alias will post a spam to this question


i could add, that if think you will require any long-term treatment, you definately do not want to trust the Chinese health system.


1) your health insurance is unlikely to cover the extortionist costs that would be incurred.

2) if you were super-weathly, you are unlikely to stay in China for treatment as even the super-wealthy are heath-tourists.

A: In my personal experience, teaching certificates have varied in releva
A:In my personal experience, teaching certificates have varied in relevance depending on the context and location. Here's a breakdown of each aspect:a) Getting the teaching job: Teaching certificates can certainly enhance your chances of securing a teaching position, especially in formal educational settings such as schools and language institutions. Many employers prefer candidates who have undergone specific training in pedagogy and instructional techniques, which these certificates often provide. However, other factors such as experience, references, and the demand for teachers in a particular area also play significant roles in the hiring process.b) Getting a higher salary than your uncertified competitors: In some cases, holding a teaching certificate can indeed lead to a higher salary compared to uncertified competitors. Many educational institutions have structured salary scales that take into account factors such as level of education, years of experience, and additional certifications. Holding a teaching certificate may place you in a higher salary bracket or make you eligible for certain salary incentives or bonuses. However, this can vary widely depending on the specific policies of the institution or organization.c) Getting promotions: Teaching certificates can be beneficial for career advancement and securing promotions within the field of education. They demonstrate a commitment to professional development and mastery of teaching skills, which are qualities that many employers value when considering candidates for leadership positions or administrative roles. Additionally, some promotions may require specific certifications or qualifications, making holding a teaching certificate essential for advancement in certain cases.Regarding which certificate yields better results, it largely depends on the specific requirements of the job market and the educational context in which you intend to work. For example:A Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) is often highly regarded in formal school settings and can be advantageous for those seeking positions in primary or secondary education.Montessori certification is valuable for individuals interested in working in Montessori schools or implementing Montessori principles in their teaching approach.A Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) certificate is particularly relevant for those seeking to teach English to non-native speakers in international contexts or language schools.Ultimately, the best certificate for you will depend on your career goals, the specific requirements of the positions you're interested in, and the preferences of potential employers in your target job market. It's essential to research the requirements and preferences of employers in your desired field and tailor your qualifications accordingly. -- ruqaiya761
