I was referred to Dr Julian Tan from the hospital A&E for chest discomfort and hyperventilation. He is a professional, attentive and very assuring heart specialist. He ordered comprehensive tests to check for heart disease. The test results were good but I was still having discomfort. After other tests, the results found that I had an onset of cervical spondylosis and gastric reflux, I was referred to an orthopedic dr and physiotherapy. Im thankful that he followed through go find the cause of my other health issues even after clearing the heart issues.

Dr Julian Tan is my guardian angel. He is also a friend and a brother. Ten years ago my GP treated me for normal flu for about five weeks. When I met Dr Julian at a dinner function, he pointed out that I showed signs of heart failures. He advised me to follow up urgently. A few days later on I was admitted to A & E and he kindly attended to me and advised and counselled me so that I would be prepared. Without his kind heart I and professional advice might have missed the chance and could have died. God has been kind and good to me. I had 4 bypass surgery. I am grateful to Dr Julian.

I am so grateful to have received the recommendation from another mum to contact Dr Shankar's assistant. Dr Shankar is so excellent. I am so pleased that he arranged the surgery for my son in such a short notice. He is really famous and I heard that he has done the surgery for a premature baby as small as 1.6kg. He is really a kind and nice person and I'm so blessed to have met him and he did the intervention for my son.My son is coping well so far.

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!

I had to hospitalize after primary diagnosis concluded my situation as "Congestive Heart Failure due to dilated cardiomyopathy." with my heart functioning only 15% at best.

Within 24 hours after hospitalized treatment, I lost over 7 liters of water, heart was strength and stabilize to function better up to 35%, which I instantly felt stronger, no more breathlessness and improved appetite too.

Glad that angiogram was done to confirmed the main arteries are unblocked, so I'm discharged today!

My sincere gratitudes to my cardiologist Dr Ng Wai Lin, the fantastic nursing and care team.

I've been a patient with Dr Lim ever since I had a bypass operation at Mt Elizabeth in 2000. I have been going to Dr. Lim 4 times a year since then, making a total of over about 60 visits. I have always obtained the best possible care from Dr. Lim and his excellent staff. He is always unhurried, always intent on listening to his patients, and does a very good job explaining his treatment to non-specialists. As a long-term survivor of bypass surgery, I am very grateful to Dr. C.H. Lim. I wholeheartedly (pun intended) recommend him in the highest terms possible.

Dr. William Yip appears to be the expert pediatric cardiologist in Singapore. He knows his stuff and is wonderful in that grandfatherly way. He was warm and connected well with my 6-year old son. When you get his attention, he spends the time to help you to understand his perspective. The clinic has one stationary ultrasound and one stationary ECG machine on site in a diagnostics room. That room becomes a major bottleneck - a clinic with this much traffic should have more diagnostic machines. Here's why there are three stars.

The clinic is pure chaos. When you are called back to the doctor's office to consult with the doctor, he is nice and explains things, but you feel rushed (maybe because there are yellow jacketed women opening the door and coming in and out throughout your $250 - 5-minute consult). You feel rushed and nerve-wracked. You feel like if you don't spit it all out, you'll miss your chance.

The ICAC does not take insurance so it's all paid by you up front. I paid $800 for a doctor consult + EKG + ultrasound. There are probably a lot of things the clinic could do to be more efficient, customer-oriented, better in terms of their communications and reduce the frustration of dealing with this busy office. That said, we will continue to see Dr. Yip every 6 months because when it comes to pediatric cardiology, he's the man and seems to be the only game in town.

My husband saw Prof Lim YT for over 9 years for his MVP.  Prof. Lim is also very renowned in cardiology. Please do not underestimate the relapses. I still remember when my husband had a relapse on Friday night, we were very anxious and didn't know what to do. He called his doctor on Saturday morning, and his doctor told him to be warded immediately. His situation was similar, but he didn't stay overnight. Admitted in the morning, and by 5 pm, the doctor gave him the go-ahead to be discharged. Prof Lim is in private practice now and I recommend him if you need a cardiologist.

Dr Ong is a very meticulous and caring doctor. He would perform very thorough checks on my husband to ensure that his condition was stable. Unlike other doctors i had met, Dr Ong is also very warm and caring, and i was completely at ease sharing my difficulties and concerns with him. The nurses were also very friendly; they provided me with a shoulder to cry on and an outlet to vent my frustrations.

Without their help, i would have broken down long ago. They gave me the strength to continue caring for my husband, and I'm glad that his condition has since improved tremendously.  Thank you so much Dr Ong!

Ask Dr Nandakumar: Heart Stents

Coronary heart disease is the most common type of heart disease in many developed countries. It happens when you have fatty substance that builds up in your artery. That reduces blood flow and thus oxygen supply to the heart muscle. Heart stents are used to 'unclog' the artery and restore the blood flow. 

Learn about how heart stents are used to treat coronary heart disease as Dr Nandakumar answered questions from readers on: 

  • Best treatment for blocked heart vessels
  • What happens during an angioplasty 
  • Risks and complications associated with stent placement
  • What happens after an angioplasty
