1. National Skin Centre (NSC)

You can request to see a dermatologist privately at the NSC. Even if you go as a new patient via a polyclinic referral, rest assured that a consultant will still be seeing you on your first visit. We'd suggest the former method though, for shorter waiting times and the ability to choose your consultant and have follow-up visits with the same consultant.

Our team has only good things to say about Dr Steven Thng, if you're fortunate enough to book in with him (he's usually terribly busy). He's one of the cheeriest and friendliest doctors around.

We are also huge fans of Dr Melissa Tan Wee Ping, if you ever need any laser or cosmetic procedures at the NSC. She's super skilful and sweet in person. We've recommended many of our friends to see her.

Dr Roy Chan, Dr Leow Yung Hian, Dr Martin Chio, Dr Chong Wei Sheng are all amazing too. To be honest, there are too many great consultants at the NSC to name all of them here.
