How did you choose your doctor, midwife or other type of medical professional?

We had seen a couple of doctors and settled on Dr. Le Van Duc. I have had children delivered in the US and my wife and I were felt completely safe in Dr. Duc's expertise. I was allowed into surgery for the c-section and he advised me every step of the way. He's extremely professional.

If you were to have another child in this country, would you do anything differently in terms of preparation and/or the delivery?

None; FVH is a very good hospital and a satisfying experience was had.

If a friend of yours living in the same country were expecting, what advice would you give her?

Dr. Le Van Duc at FVH
