So I have been trying without success to find the number for the SEHA clinic in Khalifa A. I found the main SEHA number for Head office called it and pressed 2 for English and then 0 for the Operator and when I asked the gentleman for the number to the SEHA in KCA he promptly told me in broken english no HR calls. I tried explaining that I was not interested in speaking to HR but rather the lab for my bloodwork and he promptly hung up on me.

I called back.

Got the same man, cut him off at the pass and asked for someone that could speak English. Another man comes on and I ask him for "the number for SEHA in Khalifa City A" and he proceeds to tell me that he does not know of this place at all and hangs up. :scratch:

:tantrum:

If any of you lovely ladies have this number would you mind passing it on please. I am trying to avoid having to go in there after work just to ask a question of the lab.

Thanks.

*UPDATE* So I had to go in to SEHA after work after more futile attempts to find the number.
Here is the number if anyone should need it - 02 556 1695

Can you tell me what kind of services can we use in the SEHA Ambulatory Care?

We have one here in Officer City also, but I never gone inside to check it out but I was always wandering what can we use it for.

Also just a note that they only accept Daman insurance. If you want to use other insurance they will give you a receipt and you will have to settle up with your insurance provider.

I took a friend who was staying with us to SEHA in KCA as she had a VERY bad stomach..... she had tests and it came back that she had amoebic dysentry (yuck)....the Dr we saw managed to prescribe the wrong dose of anti-biotic (way too strong) and told her to take Immodium after every toilet visit....so my poor friend had worse stomach cramps, swallowed about 7 packs of Immodium and didn't get any better....so I then took her to a Dr at Al Noor, who was shocked at the advice and medication she had been given at SEHA. Immodium is a no-no, the 'bug' needs to come out rather than try and keep it in, and he changed strength of anti-b's. She then started to get better!!! I won't be going to SEHA for anything!!!

Really? You know ive had the exact experience with SEHA. They have been the more sensible ones to me and those private hospitals seemed to be the ones who are just trying to earn more with over-prescriptions. I personally go to the one in Al Batten or in Khaleej Al Arabi. I heard they are more regulated as well. I find them much better than all private hospitals to be honest.. I suppose it all depends on what doctor you ended up seeing and who you are more comfortable with...

I hope your friend is much better now? Its horrible to go through bad experiences when you are already sick enough as it is!

Well while I didn't need to see a Dr. at SEHA my MIL did and I was so far from impressed it was not funny. Also when we went yesterday to get her results the medical records people would not release her results to her!!!! Ummm Hello!!! So it became a big deal :dueling: and they had to go to the Executive Director to ask if they could give her her results :furious: . We will avoid SEHA from now on.

Does anyone know what the hours are at the Khalifa City A SEHA? I need to bring my helper for a check up. I've tried calling numerous times but no answer.

Thanks!

I took my daughter there last week as she has had really bad cough and temperature (she is 2). Saw a GP who said she had bronchitis and prescribed the most awful antibiotics for her to take (which she wouldn't). So went for 2nd opinion to Al Noor (where I usually go but thought would try SEHA as more convenient). Saw fab paediatrician there who said was respiratory virus, give calpol and rest. Antibiotics not advised. They had also spelt my daughters name wrong but because it was now in the system they could only change it if I brought in a copy of her passport. Incompetent beyond belief.
Probably won't be going back to SEHA. :thumbsdown:

We had very good experiences both with my husband and my son at SEHA. Very competent GP, well organized, super friendly, next to no waiting time...
I would always recommend it!

Never go to SEHA between 3 pm and 4 pm as that is when they are having a shift change. The doctor who is ending her shift at 3 will not want to take patients at that time and the doctor that is coming on her shift will be annoyed that the previous doctor didnt
take the file. Either before 3 pm or after 4 pm. That was my experience when I took my son there after school.
