The smaller body of an infant is substantially different physiologically from that of an adult. The clinician must take into account the immature physiology of the infant or child when considering symptoms, prescribing medications, and diagnosing illnesses.

Dr Lynn Chiam was great. Very professional, clear and concise in her explanation. Was able to allay my fears, answer all my questions and present unbiased information so I could make a decision on treatment type and procedure. Her staff was also proactive and helpful in making arrangements and scheduling appointments.

Dr Mark Loh's clinic is quite busy, but they will always find a way to fit you in, if it is an emergency. He is not very personal or chatty, but he is thorough. We had an emergency once, where we went to the emergency room and he actually met us there and called the next day to check on us. The whole family goes to him and we are pleased with his service.

We saw Dr Mark Loh and I am not super happy with him. I can't comment on his skill sets, as I have only seen him a few times, but I am looking for someone with a little more warmth, jovial and has a good understanding of local culture. I feel he is more suited for expats (despite him being local).

Dr. Belinda Murugasu-Koh is VERY VERY good!Dr Belinda is very good with kids!

If she cannot handle your case, she will recommend someone who is able to. She is very popular and respected among other doctors, as our GP recommended her to us and we know other doctors who also spoke very highly of her.

Dr. Belinda Murugasu-Koh is very motherly, knowledgeable and gives a lot of good advice on breastfeeding. She is easy to talk to and I would highly recommend her!

Consult Doctor
18 Nov 2017

I went to see Dr. Belinda Murugasu-Koh as all of my husbands colleagues have seen her for their children. I understand she is very popular with the expat community. However I didn't really get a good vibe from her, as I felt like she was hurrying me and not giving me her full attention when I brought my sick toddler in to see her. On top of that, we waited about 2 hours for her, which I didn't mind, but when I get seen I would like some attention to be paid to my questions and concerns.

Overall, my experience with her was not the best and I would like a paediatrician who is just as qualified but with a bit more personality as well as empathy for a parent who is worried about her child.

Bought my 3.5 year old son here for his very first dental visit. My wife and I were initially worried about how he would react/behave, but Dr Neo's manner was amazing. She was super friendly and explained all the tools to my son before using them, so he was comfortable with what would go on in his mouth. My son wasn’t worried at all, in fact he was happily watching cartoons during the process.

She was engaging with him (and us) through the entire treatment, and shared a detailed assessment of his dental hygiene and what to look out for in his daily brushing.

Reasonable priced and easily accessible - two thumbs up!

We actually traveled from KL twice to consult Dr. Ho

She fulfills appointment on time, is very patient and explained to us how to manage our boy's condition. The creams she suggested helped initially. We went for 1 review.

It was by chance that I introduced organic beancurd to my boy and a huge rash appeared at his mouth immediately.

As maintenance now, we used Dr. Jean Ho's suggestions to handle occasional flare-ups.

It is a wonderful feeling to touch and kiss our son's cheeks again. All the best to you

Dr Anita Menon is very prim and proper. We find her very reassuring and we have had a string of positive outcomes from seeing her for our baby's problems. The consultations are strictly on pediatric issues and no off-topic discussions. Dr Anita Menon is also very ethical and professional, as she suggested that we go to other clinics for certain shots, as we would be able to pay via Medisave there.

We plan to keep seeing her!

Some say Dr Keoy Soo Shin looks sleepy or that he seldom smiles, but you cannot deny his loving and gentle approach towards the kids. Dr Keoy is always accommodating, no matter how busy he is. When our kids are down with serious flu or bronchitis, his attention and patience calms us down. He also accepts phone consultations and is such a reassuring doctor.

Dr. Lim Kwang Hsien can be quite harsh sometimes as he puts the welfare of the babies first. He shows real concern and care towards them. My son was hospitalized twice and he really took great care of him and so did the nurses in Mt. A.

Dr Khoo is apparently quite a well-known ophthalmologist and recognised as the best eye specialist for children.After putting my son through several tests and checking his eyes thoroughly, the doctor concluded that his eyesight degradation was the result of an eye condition known as entropion.The doctor gave us two options and told me to consider both options carefully before making a decision. 

I want to add here that the doctor was great..he was very detailed in his explanation and spent quite some time with us, giving me as much information as possible. It was a different experience with the doctor at the refraction clinic who was very flustered (there were many patients waiting) and rushed through the tests.

One year after the surgery our son's eyesight is absolutely normal and I am so happy and grateful to have seen Dr Khoo!

Consult Doctor
20 Dec 2017

Dr Khoo is a very good paediatric ophthalmologist. We brought both our son and daughter to him. My son had squint surgery by Dr Khoo before around 16mths of age. I was initially apprehensive when we were told to go for surgery but my son did not improve much after 6 mths of being on specs and Dr Khoo did mention that it is better to do before he turned 18mths. So I am glad we went with his advice. Dr Khoo is really good and has years and years of experience with children. We highly recommend him if you need a paediatric ophthalmologist.

Dr Ong Eng Keow is extremely experienced as he treated our babies for severe jaundice and managed it very well. We recently went to him again and it took Dr Ong less than 30 seconds to diagnose our baby. It made me feel that the long wait outside his door is super worthwhile.Dr Ong made an effort to patiently advise a few great tips to us which I found extremely useful as well. 

Consult Doctor
20 Jan 2018

Dr Ong Eng Keow saw my daughter since birth. We go to him for any problem with our baby. He is a very busy PD. When it comes to vaccines, Dr Ong is very fast, which some parents may feel is rushed. But, when our baby was ill and we asked questions, Dr Ong explained thoroughly and gave simple and clear instructions. So my advice is ask questions, if not it will be a quick consultation. 

Dr Ong also does not overprescribe and does not give antibiotics for everything. Also, prepare to wait for hours to see him. We have waited for 3 hours even with appointments before. 

 

Consult Doctor
11 Feb 2017

Dr Ong Eng Keow is very fatherly and calm. He was the paediatrician for 2 of my kids and will definitely consider him for my 3rd child if I give birth again. He has a very long waiting time, but I think it is worth waiting, as he is really good to consult. He gives good advice on breast-feeding.

Dr Yip Yeng Yoong missed two things when checking on my son after his birth. My son had a sacral dimple and also torticollis. We noticed that he seems to have an extra 'anus' but thought that it was nothing. But when he was 4 days old we had to send him to KKH as he had diarrhea. the PD at the hospital said, if the baby has a sacral dimple, they will arrange for an ultrasound to ensure that the spinal cord is closed off correctly. When we next saw Dr Yip  3 days later and told him what the other PD had told us, he actually said, "is there a dimple?" He didn't even check!

As for the torticollis, it was again diagnosed a few weeks later at KKH when we noticed our baby preferred to turn right instead of left, resulting in a deformed head. Again, this was not picked up by Dr Yip.

 Dr William Yip is very good at managing Kawasaki disease. It is also very important to find a paediatrician who is competent in handling KD.

We currently see Dr. Ang Poon Liat at Thomson. In general, we like him, he is very professional and knowledgeable. However, I feel so rushed, the wait is long and I can't understand what he says because he talks so fast! I hate asking people to repeat themselves multiple times. (Also, I suppose a female Paediatrician. would be nice. I wanted to breastfeed, but my baby always bites me, so I pumped for nearly 8 months, and I got a guilt trip from Dr. Ang for even thinking of switching to formula. It would be nice to have someone who can identify with the issues of motherhood!)

 My baby is seeing Dr Simon Ng since birth.  He's an unassuming doctor and we are comfortable with him. Dr Ng returns your calls promptly and will give you print-outs with advice on how to look after your baby. He is really good at vaccinating our baby without aggravating her, as she had hardly cried during any of her sessions. His staff are not the best though and that affects the overall experience of visiting Dr Ng.

Dr Simon Ng is my baby's paediatrician. He is good at his job, professional and respectful. He is also thorough when he examines my baby and is stern with me when I am careless. The only thing that irks me about Dr Simon Ng is that he hardly makes eye contact with you and he is not personable.

The doc we see is Dr Lee Chien Yee. I like Dr Lee and would definitely recommend her. She's patient with the kids, does detailed check ups and doesn't raise parents' anxieties especially with that kind of situation with sickly kids. She manages kids well and my kid doesn't cry when she gets vaccinated, which is a plus point when looking out for a good PD. The only downside is the long queue. So you have to fix an appointment prior. For walk-ins, be the 1st to visit the clinic at 9am so that you won't get yourself stuck in a long wait.

I'd like to thoroughly recommend Dr Vasanthi Rajalingam (known as Dr Vas).

She is possibly the bubbliest person on earth and very competent. I find her to be slightly over-the-top administering medicines but I'm from the UK where you have to be practically dying to get antibiotics! But the main thing is that she has successfully diagnosed a couple of things early that would have been more troublesome if she had not have spotted them until later.

Olive Tree has been around for almost two decades and their service has been consistent throughout, thanks to Dr Tan Siew Pin. Talking to the patients under her, I can really understand why they keep coming back: she always goes above and beyond in her service, and genuinely cares for her patients. Having a doctor who truly cares for you and your child changes everything. It's crazy how Olive Tree barely has any online presence, as they have always relied on word of mouth and yet, that has sufficiently been keeping the clinic busy. I would trust Dr Tan with my children.

We are Indonesians and went down to see Dr Nancy Tan at gleneagles when she practiced there. I was very disappointed with her service. She was not friendly and I felt that she showed a lack of understanding of my child's problems. He suffered from diarrhoea and stomach ache, but instead of examining him, all Dr Tan did was give her opinion on my son's diet. She did not examine his body and we paid over S$500 for her consultation only. 

Dr Tan offered a blood test and ultrasound but they all came up to an additional S$1270, which was an exorbitant amount, so I declined that.

Dr Chan Kit Yee is an experienced doctor. However, her consultations are very quick and she is not very approachable. Of course, the waiting time is short.

Dr Terence Tan is a Mr Nice Guy. He is very patient and reassuring. We were a little worried about my baby's hole in the heart when he was born and Dr Tan was so empathetic. He shared with us his own experience with his son, whose hole closed when he reached 2 years old. Dr Tan is also prompt to respond to emails and phone calls. When I called him to ask about the sudden rash the boys experienced, he called back on the same day to give me advice. He also called me on the same day when I sent him an email of the photos I took of their rash 2 weeks later and referred me to an allergist. I would hope to go back to him but his waiting time is extremely long as he is super popular and his clinic is quite far for us. But overall, he is an excellent doctor!

Went to her once and I'm never going back again. My girl (about 16 months back then) was down with a fever of about 38.9. She ordered for blood test and urine test for her so I asked her why are the test needed. She snapped at me and told me "mummy you need to learn to close your eyes". Be rest assured I wasn't even rude or pushy or anything, was only trying to find out the reason for the tests. She said she suspected it's UTI without any symptoms thus the tests ordered.

As a new mum I felt extremely pressurised by her to put my girl through those tests and she sounded irritated by me asking that 1 question. I should have walked right out back then. The test results came out it's just a viral infection. I am not a doctor but a quick Google would show u the chances of UTI without symptoms is only 5%. And my girl is not showing any signs of UTI at all. Anyway, thanks to those tests ordered, I had to bring my girl to another pd the following day to treat her throat. She lost her voice for close to 5 days. I felt extremely guilty after that visit to this Dr Ang. I'm never returning to her again.

We were told at KKH that my son needs surgery and that is the only option. I was devastated and made an appointment with Dr Chui Chan Hon at Mount E after stepping out of KKH. The surgeon at KKH didn’t even look at other possibilities and decided on a surgery just by a touch on that bump. Dr Chui was very empathetic and  We discussed about my son's condition and his insights made me feel more at ease. However, he advised we go to a paediatric neurosurgeon and even made the call himself so that we can see him right away. Dr Chui was kind enough to not charge us for his consultation too. We are so grateful for Dr Chui for his reassurance and for directing us in the right direction.

Our son was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma stage 4 cancer with 40% survival chance after a 9mth-1yr treatment involving surgery and chemotherapy. We sought Dr Chui Chan Hon at Mount Elizabeth, for a second opinion. I am so glad we found Dr Chui, as he was so reassuring and made me feel so much better. He emphasized that we should tell ourselves that the survival rate is 100% because without surgery he is left with 0%. 

Dr Chui is truly an expert surgeon. It was a successful surgery and after a long battle we are in remission now!

 

 

I am glad that my buddy irend had found this surgeon for me. After talking with Dr chui, i feel soo much better after he tell me this word which i will always remember. Once u make the decision to go for the treatmemt, dun think abt the 40% survival rate. Instead u should tell urself the survival rate is 100% cos if never go treatment , the rate is 0%. With Dr Chui expertise, i know my edison will be in great hands. This will be a long surgery but i know in my heart.. it will be a successful one. This surgery will take place after either 4th or 5th chemo and i really cannot wait Dr chui will take out the monster from edison stomach.

If you’re heading towards Gleneagles to deliver your baby, I’m highly recommending Dr Ratna Sridjaja to be your PD.

Dr. Ratna is someone who spends time addressing any concerns about your little one and doesn’t seem mindful of the silly questions we have been asking as first-time parents. She’s an Indonesian who could speak Bahasa Indonesian, English, Mandarin and a little bit of Hokkien. She’s also eloquent, very gentle and interacts very well with our baby. She has a very personable character and needless to say, I am very satisfied with her professionalism and her working style.

Raffles Hospital A&E referred me to Dr Veronica Toh for my 2.5 year old son's leg injury. She examined him and provided no treatment. Instead, she referred me to her husband who works at Mt Elizabeth. We paid for 2 referrals and did not receive any treatment on that day! It was a serious problem, as KKH A&E admitted him immediately and arranged for a surgery.

Dr Heng Siok Kheng was my daughter's PD for her first few visits. Dr Heng can be quite brief in her explanations and therefore we decided to switch PD. But overall, she is not too bad, not fantastic though.

My baby is with Dr Natalie Epton. She was highly recommended by our GP.  We find her very straightforward and patient. She is pro-breastfeeding as well. Dr Epton also spends at least 20 to 30mins with each patient, so you don't feel rushed when you see her.

My 2.5-year-old baby boy is epileptic and is treated by Dr Phuah Huan Kee. His fits have been reduced from "every 2-3days" to "once in 2-3 months".

Dr Phua is a very caring doctor and he inspired us to look at everything in a positive way. My child is growing well and normal and I am really thankful to Dr Phuah!

Dr Irene Chan is a very skilled doctor. She has been looking after my 3 children since they were born. My 2nd child had a medical condition which required surgery and she was the one who diagnosed it immediately and tried to rectify it non-surgically. When my 3 children were just born, she also monitored them very closely to ensure their well-being, especially since my milk hadn't come in immediately and they all had jaundice. When they had illnesses that weren't too serious, she also assured us that everything was fine.

Dr Goh was a very patient doctor in my opinion. He took the time to explain to me in details on the signs and symptoms that I should look out for in my baby's case and he mentioned that she’s actually doing alright. It was a case of formula suitability. We were quite on the same page that we didn’t want baby to have any medications unless really necessary and so I went home with Probiotics.Dr  Goh also returned my call via a message from the nurse. In the call, he also took the time to explain to me on my queries. I think most doctors would have loved to hang up the phone call asap but he didn’t appear so. Instead, he offered that I email him updates if I was still very concerned (and that’s what I did!)

We went to Dr Phuah Huan Kee when our son had a febrile fit. We went when he had recovered from his fever. Dr Phuah subtly observed my son while he played and once he distracted him with toys, he spoke to us.

Dr Phuah spoke very calmly, very clearly and confidently. He explained what's a febrile fit was, what are the factors that contribute to a febrile fit and other important consequences. Dr Phuah was also reassuring and advised that we should focus on the 95% chance of his fit not evolving into epilepsy. 

Consulting Dr Phuah Huan Kee was quite expensive though.

Dr Tan Zhen Han has been a terrific and wonderful paediatrician for my daughter for the past 15 months!

He has warmed my heart as a first time mum when he dropped a call to check on my daughter when she was admitted to the hospital. She was then 4 days old running a fever and after the consultation and advice from Dr Tan, my husband and I decided to admit her in the hospital.

For a worried mum, the unexpected call after office hours from Dr Tan Zhen Han added assurance and showed me that he genuinely cares for his patients. 

Dr Tan Zhen Han is truly a great paediatrician!

Dr Low Eu Hong is too safe, to the point where he prescribes antibiotics very easily without waiting for a lab result. He told us it is better to start the course of antibiotics before the results. My son was having an asthma exacerbation, which I understand sometimes can be caused by respiratory infections. However, I want to be cautious with the amount of antibiotics I give my son and wished the treatment plan was to control the symptoms until the results came, so that the necessary treatment could be provided. 

In the end, the results did not show an infection and antibiotics was not necessary in the first place.

My wife and I have been taking our son to Dr Tan Zhen Han ever since his birth and have been more than satisfied with his professionalism and service.

Dr Tan Zhen Han is great with our baby boy and has been instrumental in delivering sound advice to us as new parents. What struck us the most and helped us decide on Dr Tan as our son's PD was his patience and bedside manner with not just our son, but with us as concerned parents. From his actions, we can see that his patients are not just patients or names to him, but that he genuinely cares for all the children that come to visit him.

I strongly recommend him as a paediatrician!

My baby's TSH level was out of the normal range after 2 tests and Dr Low Kah Tzay told us that it was all normal and nothing to worry about. 

Only after going to another PD, we got to know that she has Congenital hypothyroidism and required medication and regular blood tests until the age of 3.

So after knowing this, we called Dr Low Kah Tzay to discuss the previous TSH results, for which he answered very nonchalantly that since my baby's TSH level dropped quite a bit and even though it is still out of the normal range, it is fine. I felt as though he was very dismissive of this whole situation when the other PD said my baby will have to go on medication.

During our consultation, Dr Jenny Tang kept herself busy picking up phone calls seeking medical advices every 1-2 minutes, which was distracting and disrespectful to the patient in front of her. I know that she is famous but we also paid her $170 just to see her for a couple of minutes. I am furious due to a number of reasons.

First, she prescribed my kid antibiotics even without listening to his lungs (as my kid was fussy and fought it). Secondly, when I returned to her right away as my kid had swollen upper lip with rashes on his chest after taking Augmentin the antibiotics, she brushed it off and said it might not be because he is allergic to the drug, and asked me to continue giving him the same drug!

When I looked at her in disbelief, she then gave another antibiotic to replace Augmentin, and my kid didn't have the reactions anymore. Thirdly, besides antibiotics she prescribed a crazy amount of medicine for a 22 month old child and it cost us $400+ for one child's flu for one visit. Lastly, besides flu medicine, she also prescribed an unnecessarily big tube of anti-rash cream that will be enough for him till he goes to college, and that tube alone cost $50. That one she asked me if Calamine lotion I apply to his rash gave a satisfactory result, and I said yes, but I was just worried and pointed it out to her in case she sees any relations between rash and his sickness. She said it's just heat rash and asked my permission for her to prescribe some cream for him. Who would have thought that a famous doctor much revered like her will prescribe something like that? She did appear quite greedy and not really caring much about the health of her patients, very sad to say.

I was very comfortable with Dr Suhaila Mas. She was prompt, detailed and most importantly, very friendly. My son was obedient and didn't even retaliate throughout the whole process. In fact, he was also comfortable with Dr Mas.

Dr Oh Meng Choo was our fourth pediatrician as I wanted another opinion on my kids frequent upper respiratory tract infections.They were both enrolled in childcare on Jan 2017 and ever since they were frequently sick.


The diagnosis and medication is most appropriate and she emphasizes more on building kids immune aside from treating the illness.


The very best experience here was when she introduced this method of extracting my son's mucus stuck behind his throat using this suction machine. You can see the mucus coming out, such a relief for me. After applying some drops and yes he was fine that very night. Worth every penny spent.


The waiting period is rather long but understandably due to high demand and kids get agitated easily, so it is best to make an appointment.

I strongly recommend Dr Cheng Tai Kin. He is very gentle with the babies and is very thorough during check-ups. I also like that he doesn't simply prescribe medication for every little ailment. For my younger daughter, he picked up on a heart murmur the day she was born (that had been completely missed during all of my pre-natal scans and checks) and recommended us to see a cardiologist and sure enough, there was a problem. If it hadn't been for Dr Cheng's keen observation and thoroughness, the problem would easily have been left diagnosed until too late.

Ask Dr Elaine Tan: Early Braces Treatment In Children

DxD Session held on August 31, 2018.

Most people associate orthodontics with adolescence or older children. However, orthodontists recommend that children see an orthodontist as early as age 7. Typically, permanent teeth start to come through around the age of 6 or 7, with adult molars coming through around the age of 10.

If your child displays orthodontic problems that warrant treatment, your orthodontist will recommend the most efficient sound course of action to nip it in the bud.
