My mother was treated in the department of cardiology in Raffles Hospital. Attending doctor - Ng Wai Lin. They did coronarography there (diagnostic), during which the doctor installed a metal (!) stent! Although such a stent, not a medicinal stent, is placed only in case of a life threat, in the absence of other stents. In Raffles there is no shortage of good medicinal stents, it was clear that it would close!
But the most interesting is that recently we learned that all this time the doctor knew about the presence of another diagnosis, and did not say that! The bottom line is that my mother was diagnosed with Aortoarteritis
(Takayasu's Disease), a rheumatological disease, which leads to inflammation of blood vessels - the vascular wall is growing, which is why blood flow is disturbed - this leads to heart attacks, strokes and other serious consequences. It is treated by a rheumatologist.
Cardiologist Ng Wai Lin should have realized that the stenosis was caused not just by the clogging of cholesterol plaques, but everything is much more serious. He had to send my mom to a rheumatologist; he had to ask himself why the stents were closed in half a year! Instead, at the end of 2016, he put another 3 stents, although my mother was already after one heart attack and with a lot of closed vessels. He again climbed into the arteries, put the stents, somehow shoved them and heavily inflamed the already inflamed vessels, took money for them - that's all. Six months later, my mother had a heart attack again - now she lies in the hospital.
And here, when the patient had already returned home, it was no longer possible to take money, so the doctor's answer was - follow the recommendations , take aspirin. Even then, he did not say to run to the hospital for a rheumatologist or cardiologist. And the extract about the treatment was achieved only a month later! Although it must be issued immediately after the end of treatment.
I hope that my mother will recover and everything will be fine. Но Raffles Hospital and especially the doctor Ng Wai Lin do not recommend it to anyone! If you want to save life and health for yourself and your family - choose another clinic!
