Her queues can be very very long. Be prepared to wait for at least 2 hours. I once waited for 3 hours and finally get to see her at 12 midnight! But she does apologise to you when you wait that long. She is very thorough and detailed, she would explain to you in detail when you have any queries or concerns regarding your pregnancy. She would even draw a diagram to explain things better. And she would always scan your tummy to check the babys progress. She doesnt seem very friendly at first but as your pregnancy progresses, she would lighten up and make jokes and stuff. Well in my case anyway. And during labour, she was superb! Though she came a bit late, (I was already 8 cm dilated. I later found out that she was handling another delivery next door!) the way she handled my delivery was very calm and collected. She knows her stuff, this woman. Shes a fantastic and dedicated doctor. I cant praise her enough.

Everyone raves about how gentle she is, how soft spoken she is, how patient she is. However, the downside to her is that she is perpetually busy due to her popularity and her waiting time is usually 2 hours at the minimum. Further, she only operates from the hospital so I reckon that my monthly appointment could be quite a pain. Ok la.. to be fair, SJMC SDMC also has top notch facilities, good nursing care, and they are pro breast feeding. A major plus point about Dr Delaila is that she opens an evening clinic in SS19 during the weekdays up until 11pm or until the last patient leaves. Of course, occasionally she would have to close her clinic due to emergency /on call at the hospital which is unavoidable. Basically, very convenient for us working people. The first time I met her, I fell in love with her. It was literally love at first sight! The first thing she did was apologize for us having to wait so long (yes, she has a lot of patients too) and then proceeded to do the first scan. Because my uterus is terbalik (nothing major about that), she had to do a vaginal scan and she was soooo gentle! The things I like about her is Straight forward Funny Gentle Caring Patient Generous with MCs Very detailed doctor Obviously loves her job Passionate about babies Pro natural birth. Of course not everything is fine and dandy, but it can be overlooked. (1) Incompetent nurses at her clinic. I dont understand why sometime no one picks up the phone or when you are at the clinic enquiring about something, no one layan you. (2) Long waiting list. However, you can register first (registration opens at 7:00pm) and then go for your dinner and head back to the clinic thereafter. Usually, we would only head back close to 10:00pm because Dr Delaila only comes in around 8:30 8:45pm. (3) Clinic tiba tiba close. Cant be helped as mentioned before sometimes she needs to rush off for an emergency case. To be safe, before heading back to the clinic, please call first to check that the doctor is in. The good thing is that once youve registered, you can go back the following day without having to pre register again. (4) Pricing. Not exactly cheap and payment is by cash only. My average check up would cost me somewhere around RM200. My last check up which includes a blood test to test for Down Syndrome costed me RM500. Well, I am very blessed because pre natal care is fully covered by my company so I can claim unlimited amount. Worse case scenario, theres an Agro Bank at the same row so you can withdraw cash from there. Other than that, I am all for Dr Delaila. And if budget permits, I strongly recommend Dr Delaila. She is such an awesome and wonderful gynae. So glad we made the right choice at the first try.
