so, looking to move to Tainan/Kaohsiung this June for a year (possibly 3) before moving closer to Taipei for a further 5-7.
My 2.5 year old daughter has epilepsy and we would like to start searching for a Pediatric Neurologist in southern Taiwan.
any ideas where we can search? who to ask?
I know that intake appointments are harder to get, and often have a long waiting list. so it would be good to get on the list ASAP.
We normally see our Doc every 6 mo.
also. about insurance.
we will def have private insurance for the and first 4 mo (as i cant get Nat and my ARC until than, correct?) we will be language students at the CLC of NCKU.
any idea how insurance things work, or where to look for info? I asked the embassy, but they where only generally helpful.
thinking of keeping my youngest on private insurance forever. just in case anything. (i have heard of ppl who have both Nat, and private… not sure why, but… I was under the understanding that local healthcare was not expensive.)
I am a big fan of chinese medicine, hollistic healing, and homeopathy. which are never covered by insurance.
my daughters’ current medication (which we tried to dose her off and failed. will not try again until she is 8yrs old as per various friends experiences) is Keppra (LEVETIRACETAM 100mg/ml solution)
not sure if it exists in TW. or if a script is needed. if someone could ask a pharmacy. greatly appreciated.
its about $60-70 for a monthly dose here sans insurance… (approx 160ml)
anywho. any help and all tips advice are greatly appreciated.
you can also contact me directly on LINE: chichihuil
thanks in advance
oh… would preffer the doc in Tainan or Kaohisung, but its such a small island, Taipei would be worth it for a better doc/better hospital.
it is imporant for it to be a PEDIATRIC Neurologist. we changed three times here…
