I had a piece of cotton (from a q-tip) stuck for some time in my ear, which my generalist could not remove with a syringe.

Dr Gan removed it effortlessly with a forceps. I could follow the procedure on screen.

The Complete Guide To Seeing An ENT Specialist In Singapore (2019)
The Complete Guide To Seeing An ENT Specialist In Singapore (2019)

Friends, families, and even fellow doctors often ask me how they should go about seeing an Ear, Nose & Throat (ENT) Specialist in Singapore.

Many are not even aware that ENT as a surgical specialty even exists! Although I end up seeing them myself most of the time, they often have many questions. These include questions about the costs of seeing an ENT specialist, or the need for a subspecialist for their condition. 

As an ENT specialist with more than 10 years of experience in this field, I hope this article will shed some light for those in search for an ENT specialist in Singapore.
