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.

OUCH! HOW YOU RUN COULD BE HARMING YOU
Sport Medicine
February 5th, 2018

Running can bring both joy and pain. Running keeps you fit, allows you to stay trim, works your body, and clears your mind. However, all this grinds to a halt when you get injured.

5 POWERFUL LIFE LESSONS FROM A FIRST YEAR NUS DENTISTRY STUDENT
Dental
Singapore Healthcare
February 1st, 2018

Dentistry. Welcome to the hardest undergraduate degree in Singapore. I’m not kidding you right here. Don’t take it from me, take it from professors who have been running the curriculum, even ones from the Faculty of Medicine in NUS YLLSoM.

Your road to getting a Bachelor of Dental Surgery (BDS) degree is going to be filled with countless hours of sweat and tears.

You will break down, you will cry at some point in time. It's not a matter of “whether” but “when”.

Are there any anti-depressants and sleeping pills which can be purchased off the counter in Singapore?

Is there a difference in LASIK with EEC at Mt Alvernia or Mt Elizabeth?

Hi Michelle Thanks for your message. I went to his outlet at Mt Alvernia as I believe that’s where he has most of his LASIK operations.
