Worth the premium !
Clinics, car repair workshops, morgues, hospitals, etc...are definitely not the places one like to go. But when when the situation necessitates, having a nice place to go to, makes the going sweeter (for want of a better word).
I had the less than pleasant opportunity to experience Bao Zhong Tang (BZT) first hand recently...no, not that BZT is bad...but when a loved one needs it's services...the situation might not be good. However, the professional service renders by the staff...from the receptionist, the specialist doctors (direct from Shanghai , no less) to the cashier... the experience certainly takes a big chunk off the rough edges.
Perhaps the pleasant situation I encountered was due to the fact that this TCM center just shifted from their SGH location last week to the swanky Novena Specialist Center... and the crowd have not build up just yet. Appointment was a breeze, consultation with the doctor was cordial and pleasant. Should acupuncture be required...you will directed to a cosy room with bed for the treatment...and a wireless buzzer is provided should you need attention during the 30min acupuncture when the doctor busies herself with other patients.
And the amazing after service -! should treatment involved brewing of traditional herbs, BZT will brew the required potion, packed in hygienic plastic longish packing (somewhat like soya bean curds packs you find in supermarts) and have it delivered (an option at just $10) to your house the very next working day !!! If the treatment calls for 2 weeks of the brewed infusion. 14 packs will be packed...store in the fridge and to be placed in hot water to warm up prior consumption... certainly takes the TCM several notches, would you say ?
So if you prefer go the holistic approach of TCM in a modern stylish chic ambience...not the dingy herb-smelling clinics of many other TCM clinics..than Bao Zhong Tang is certainly worth the premium.. I hope no readers need to use the service...but where western medicine may not fulfills the needs...this is the place and way to go.
