Q: Is there any medical practising doctor here?

Hi everyone, I am trying to look for a certain type of medication or even consultation however I am only aware of hospitals where it is only communicated in Chinese, so since I know the name of the medication in English, I thought a doctor here could help me with its Chinese name so that I can show the Chinese doctors...

 

I appreciate any assistance.

You are in Shanghai. There must be hospitals with English speaking staff there. Even out here in the sticks we can find Chinese doctors who speak English, or doctors from English speaking countries practicing here.

Sidi, I am absolutely not a doctor but if you were to PM the name of the medicine that you seek, and I need both the trade name and the generic name, I probably could find the Chinese name and equivalent by using the Chinese web.  It's something very easy to do.

Although I am not a licensed medical practitioner, but since I did my MBBS degree here, speak Chinese language very well,and I am doing internship in a public hospital, I can try to help you with that if you could send me the name of the drug in English, provided it is legal in China to acquire such medication.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
