Overview

DxD enables medical professionals to share their personal insights on an unaffiliated online platform.

Our goal is to have the most trustworthy and unbiased information in Singapore, so that you can make good decisions about your own health.

Finally, we are all too aware that medical stuff can be pretty dry to digest, so we aim to write all content in the most entertaining (yet accurate) way possible. 

FAQs about DxD:

1. Which doctors are invited to participate on DxD?

DxD relies on word of mouth recommendations from fellow doctors to identify specialists in each field. We then meet with each doctor in person.

Yes, it's time-consuming, but besides expertise, we think it's important that the doctor is friendly and enthusiastic about raising the level of healthcare awareness in Singapore.

2. Why did we start a free QnA?

People who don't know a doctor friend are disadvantaged in engaging with healthcare. The QnA addresses this by enabling doctors to share expert opinions directly with you.

Every question is also opened up to a range of doctors and specialities to answer, so you don't get a "one-sided view".

Don't just take our word for it. We strongly encourage you to do your own research, and to read up on other health sites. It's important that everyone takes responsibility for their own health.

3. Is the QnA sustainable if it's free?

Frankly, we don't know. The platform will always be free, because that's the reason it was set up - to help people.

Doctors who contribute do so to share their knowledge and experience. They are never paid or reimbursed for their answers. If you've benefitted, you can show your thanks by spreading the word to others who may benefit as well.

4. How to ask a good question on DxD

DxD's QnA lets doctors provide definitive, expert answers to important health questions.

The goal for each question on DxD is that it becomes the best resource for anyone else looking for the answer to that question.

Questions should be clearly written

The question must be clear from the question title itself; it should not depend on the question details. Question details should make clear how answers can meet their expectations.

Questions should be grammatical

DxD requires correct spelling, punctuation, grammar and capitalization to be used in questions. A question should consist of complete sentence(s) and end in a question mark.

Questions should be concise.

As a general guideline, questions should be no longer than 2 sentences, and only 1 question should be asked at a time. If you want to ask more than 1 question, submit them separately.

Questions should comply with DxD site policies

Medical questions that contain patient-specific facts are not allowed, and may be deleted or reworded to describe a general situation.

Questions may be deleted by moderators if they contravene policy. A question can be merged into another question if both ask the same thing.

Adhering to these guidelines will ensure that:

1. Your question is approved.
2. You get better answers from doctors.
3. Your question is answered more quickly - good questions are usually answered within hours because DxD moderators queue them to be answered first. 

5. How to use the QnA correctly (please read!)

To prevent the QnA from being shuttered, you can help by using it responsibly:

DO NOT take any answers for medical advice.

DO NOT treat it as a doctor consultation - it will never replace a face-to-face doctor consult and examination, for obvious reasons.

DO NOT use it in an urgent medical situation. Go and see your doctor.

To ask a question:

  1. Register for a free account, so that you'll be notified when a doctor answers.
  2. Do not include any personal identifiable information in your question - the QnA is publicly visible.
  3. Doctors will usually reply within 24 - 48 hours. More opinions will continue to be added on, so you can check back later.

It's time to end the stigma. My name is Darren Toh, and today I will be guiding you through all the avenues from which you can seek help in Singapore if you feel that you are suffering from Depression (or other mental illnesses).

WILL RUNNING HURT YOUR KNEES? (HINT: IT WON'T)
April 18th, 2018

Time and time again, whether you are a seasoned marathoner or the neophyte jogger, you've probably heard this: Running too much will hurt your knees.

As a physiotherapist who runs frequently, I'd be a millionaire if I was given a quarter everytime I was asked, "Physio, will running damage my knees?" or being told, "You're a physio, you should know that running will damage your knees!"

CAN YOUR DOCTOR FORCIBLY HOSPITALISE YOU IN IMH? (YES, THEY CAN)
April 7th, 2018

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.
