The Tung Shin hospital charge may cheaper but the doctor consultation fees here is almost expensive as other private hospital. Not easy to find a parking and traffic jam nearby during weekdays

Doctors r good and professional but the management is lousy like shit! My mom was sent to operation for polypectomy of her nose. The admission time was 10am and the time to send for operation should be 2pm. However, we were told that doc postponed the surgery to 5pm. WHAT?! Fine, I was waiting for my mom but until 9:30pm (the visit time close at 10pm) but she still haven come back. We were scared and worried about my mom's condition cos it took so long time as the estimate time for the operation is 2 hrs. The next day (today) then only I come to know, someone mistakenly placed the wrong file for the operation. Means my mom is supposed to be the first patient but then another patient was sent to the operation first instead of my mom. Another patient was sent for emergency surgery also then no choice my mom's surgery got delayed again! (This I can understand) My mom told me that she had been waiting outside the operation, starving and freezing to death until around 9 something (pm) then only she do her operation. (My mom starved from 10am till operation time) I'm so sad and angry in the same time for everythg my mom suffered! We pay for the fee and services and this is what we get back in return! And we r coming all the way from Mentakab, Pahang! How can they made this stupid mistake!? Aren't they professional?! If in future, anyone of my family need to do OPERATION (touchwood) I will nvr let them to do in TungShin! I will definitely will not recommend my frens or anyone I know to this hospital! The doctors r very professional btw so u can go for it as outpatient.
