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.

I came here to get my allergic rhinitis treated. It was a great experience. Dr Gan provided clear explanations for the situation, and for the procedures he would do. Him and his clinic staff are very friendly as well!

THE COMPLETE GUIDE TO SEEING AN ENT SPECIALIST IN SINGAPORE (2018)
May 29th, 2018

Friends, families and even fellow doctors often ask 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.

THE ULTIMATE GUIDE TO EARWAX REMOVAL IN SINGAPORE
May 16th, 2018

We’ve all been guilty of ear digging. Most of my patients say they do it because they can’t stand the thought of earwax in their ear canal. Others will simply say that ear digging feels “shiok”. Imagine their surprise when I tell them that the ear canal is a self-cleansing organ which doesn't need to be cleaned!

DOC, I HAVE “THYROID” – HERE'S WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW!
February 1st, 2018

I often encounter friends and patients who tell me that they have “thyroid”, as if their thyroid gland is a disease or a problem. The fact is, everybody has a thyroid gland.

Your thyroid gland is a butterfly-shaped gland that sits in front of the windpipe. It's function is to produce thyroid hormones that regulate your metabolism (how your body use energy).

Most people have a perfectly normal thyroid gland. You don’t have to do anything at all if your thyroid gland is healthy!
