I'm writing this post because "recommend me a good dermatologist in Singapore" is one of the questions I'm most often asked by friends -  Now I can just direct them to this post.

Incidentally, "dermatologist Singapore" is also one of the most Googled terms in Singapore, receiving over 3700 searches each month - so I figured I'd just help everyone else out by explaining in detail how to find a suitable dermatologist for your condition and treatment needs in Singapore.

Which health screening tests do you really need? It's a common scenario in Singapore - your dad or mom receives a letter offering free "basic" health screening services, usually in the form of a tie-up with the company where he or she's working at.

So when my dad asked me last night:

What are the essential tests I should go for?

I had a glance through of what was on offer: 5 pages worth of optional add-ons to the free basic screen, ranging from cancer marker tests, to mind-boggling X-Rays and ultrasound scans. This post explains exactly what tests you need, and which you do not.

Prefer to look after your elderly parent or grandparent at home? You're not alone. However, there's a cost to this – mainly in the form of financial and caregiver stress.

It can be extremely tiring to care for an elderly person, let alone one who's also disabled or ill. I've met a patient who had to take care of not one, but two parents with severe dementia. Imagine that!

Read only if you have a strong stomach.

Just in case you've been spending too much time on Instagram and missed the news, Singapore has declared a war on diabetes in 2017.

Why? Well, for the simple reason that we have 440 000 diabetics, the second highest proportion of diabetics in the world (1st place belongs to the USA). If this rate keeps up, we'll have 1 million diabetics by 2050.

Beyond using diabetes as a running gag about eating too much desserts, I’m frequently astounded by how little my patients and friends know about diabetes.
