Hello everyone, I am Darren Toh. I have written for DoctorxDentist in the past about depression and mental illnesses, you can read about them here:

A Depressed Patient’s Journey Through Singapore's Hospitals Part 1 (SGH and Mt Elizabeth Hospital)

A Depressed Patient's Journey Through Singapore's Hospitals Part 2 (IMH General Ward)

A Depressed Patient's Journey Through Singapore's Hospitals Part 3 (IMH Mood Disorder Unit)

Today, I'm going to talk about something very interesting that I'm certain has crossed everyones' minds: INVOLUNTARY HOSPITALISATION

I'll be breaking down the legal mumbo-jumbo for everyone so that you can have a better understanding of what rights the patient has when it comes to the law.

About 99% of hair loss treatments in Singapore that you see advertised on local media do NOT work at all. You probably know exactly which adverts I'm talking about - they often feature a Mediacorp artiste. Just how much money is wasted on these ineffective treatments? A lot. Hair loss treatment is a whooping $3.5 billion industry.

Our grandparents had it, some of our parents had it...cataract surgery is the most common eye procedure amongst the older generation. Almost everyone will develop a cataract with age - it’s just a matter of time!

Despite it's prevalence, I've come to realise that many of my patients still have a poor understanding of cataracts.
