Feb 2012 - An insurance agent who had lost a hand in a robbery will likely be able to use it again. This is thanks to the team of doctors who not only carried out surgery through the night to reattach it, but went beyond the call of duty to search the crime scene for the severed member. The quick action and exemplary dedication of the doctors from Gleneagles Hospital Jalan Ampang, led to the severed hand being reattached to its owner within 10 hours of the violent crime which occurred outside a restaurant in Jalan Ampang about 9pm of Feb 3...

Feb 2011 - Hi, I'm 35 weeks pregnant, and just completed my antenatal class last month in Gleneagles Ampang. It cost RM180 for 3 session, which are held for 3 consecutive saturday, so hubby could attend (and should, because all the moms are with their hubby. The topics is very useful IMO, it covers diet in pregnancy, exercise, labour process, breastfeeding, and taking care of newborn . And there's a tour to delivery ward, showing us the labour room and also post labour suites. Since i'm planning to labour there, so i find this very helpful...
Dec 2009 - A fellow expat recommended that I see this Doctor who works at Gleneagles Intan in Ampang. He is Indian Malaysian and very professional. At first I was hesitant with a guy doctor, but he sounded very experienced and there were always many, many expats at the waiting room coming to see him. It's always best to choose a doctor which is recommended by someone you know so that you are assured of his practice...Gleneagles Intan is where I delivered my baby. All I can say is that their service and facilities are great. The prices will be higher than the other typical hospitals but it's because you are getting what you pay for. The staff are all nice and friendly and willing to help. Believe me, if you are the one lying there on the bed with a c-section & slowly recovering... you will appreciate all the kindness and friendliness around…”

Aug 2009 - There are several excellent hospitals in and around KL. Gleneagles Medical Center has very high standards, with English-speaking doctors, most of whom have received their education in the US or UK. There are others, as well, around the region. There are also many Kliniks and Polikliniks around - doctor's offices - where you can see a physician very inexpensively (around US$5) for prescriptions and minor medical problems. Almost all doctors in Malaysia speak English fluently…”
March 2009 - I gave birth at Gleneagles Hospital in KL. It is a modern facility, and my experience was quite good. My OB was a female doctor who trained in UK, I approached her with my desire to do a non-medicated birth and she was open to that, as long as I was aware that things don't always go exactly as planned. Lucky for me, they did, and my son was born after 14 hours of labor, 6 hours at the hospital. I told the midwife when I arrived that I did not want an epidural, and after a moment of disbelief, she left me and my husband alone until I felt 'like pushing' at which point we were to notify her. I was only attached to a fetal monitor at the beginning when I checked in, and then during the active delivery stage. My doctor was open to any birthing position I chose, and she and the midwife were very supportive during the delivery. I delivered in the afternoon, and stayed two nights, baby sleeping in my room. Overall it was a great experience.”
