Vaccination for Baby in Kuala Lumpur

We brought little one to the doctor today for her next round of vaccination. We tried a new doctor, which was recommended by a Swedish friend. I was surprised to find out the price disparity among doctors for the same type of service! The doctor at Sunway Medical Centre was at least RM100- more than what Global Doctors in Mont Kiara are charging. And to think Global Doctors in Mont Kiara is already a price premium over the typical doctors at the hospital (e.g. Glenneagles pediatrician).

For those expats who decide to live in the Mont Kiara area, one of the advantages is the easy access to a clinic or doctor. They have a small Global Doctors clinic which is 5-minutes walk from my condo. While the bigger branch which has more specialist and doctors would be at the other Mont Kiara street (I need to take the car to drive there, there is plenty of parking space in that facility so no worries). It is a very modern and new medical center where the nurses and receptionists all speak English -- so that expat clients won't have a hard time communicating.


  1. Greetings from Amman, Jordan... we love KL - visited during our honeymoon... and it is one of our choice for next destination (couple of years though lol)... but still hope to be back soon if only for a visit!

  2. Hi! I chanced upon your site in the midst of researching about the cost of living in KL and finding apartments. I am also a Filipino-Chinese who's about to become an expat's wife living in KL. I find your blog to be very helpful, especially your recommendations and insights on pregnancy and giving birth in KL (I'm 4 months pregnant right now). Are you at liberty to share with me what condo you settled in there in KL? We're trying to find a nice place to stay as we will be moving to KL very soon. My email address is Hope to hear from you soon, thanks! - Van

  3. hi there allycat,, thanks for your comment. i will email you shortly... happy to help and welcome to KL!

  4. Hi. I've been following your blog for a year now and I am finally going to be joining my husband in KL. We got a place in Mont Kiara and now that I have a 5 month old boy, I am in search for a good pediatrician. Could you possibly give me some recommendations? I would be extremely grateful to you.

    Thanks a lot! I'm also Filipino, by the way.

  5. Hi Maricris welcome To Malaysia!!!
    I am sure you will enjoy your stay here.
    I tried several pediatricians and I regularly go back to Dr. Altaf . He holds 2 offices, one in Global Doctors Mont Kiara ( tel 03-62030999) and another at his clinic at TTDI (Tel. 03-77223812)

    For urgent stuff and you don't want to queue or wait, I go to Global. Beautiful clinic but also more pricey. For certain stuff which I can wait, I would visit him at TTDI clinic. Cheaper.

    I forgot the contact details of the other pedis she was from Sunway Medical. Very, very pricey... Maybe that is why I forgot about it... Hee hee

    Hope this helps. Dr. Altaf is approachable and understanding and great with babies.

    For urgent hospitalization ... I suggest Glenneagles Hospital.
