I visited Dr Gan for earwax build up and slight discomfort in my right ear. Even though I didn't feel discomfort in my left ear, Dr Gan checked it anyway and realised that I have impacted earwax on both my ears. He examined my ears using the micro camera and easily removed the earwax with forceps. He also explained how it could have happened and provided advices on how to take care of my ears from now on. Thankful and happy to know that I have clean ears now!

I was introduced to Dr. Gan Eng Cern by other specialist surgeons who also go to him for their ENT issues. My surgery and treatment journey has been a smooth experience with very satisfying results, I have since brought many of my family and friends to see him for their sinus, blocked nose, sleep and snoring issues.

I have been suffering from severely blocked nose since young, my allergies made it worse and then as an adult i started to snore and it got worse over the years. Loud snoring affected my wife, she would find it hard to get to sleep. With our new baby sleeping in our bedroom, i now have double the reasons to get my snoring sorted. I was advised to try conservative treatment including sprays and C-pap but sprays had little effect on me due to my crooked septum and large turbinate which blocked much of my nasal canal, this is made worse when my allergies kick up, the swelling of my turbinate would block the entire passage way.

My surgery was surprisingly uneventful, i was expecting a lot of pain or at least i was expecting that i would not be able to go to work or drive a car. Dr. Gan must have been very delicate a surgeon, there was no swelling of my nose nor was there any pain. It was as though nothing had happened. There was some bleeding for the next few days and spotting during the next few weeks of recovery as expected of recovering wounds but i was able to go back to the office on the same day and continue with light work, drive and continue with everyday life largely unaffected. A very patient and caring doctor, he makes sure his patients feel comfortable and reassured.

I visited Dr Gan on 9 May 2018 to seek treatment for hearing loss in my left ear. After examining both my ears, Dr Gan explained that my hearing loss was due to physical blockage arising from the built-up of earwax in my left ear canal.

Dr Gan explaining the entire treatment process and cautioned me that i might experience some discomfort during the treatment. He then gently inserted an instrument (with a tiny camera attached) into my ears. This allowed me to see a magnified view of my ear canal on the monitor. I could clearly see that my left ear canal had a chunk of earwax. With the help of a tiny vacuum-like instrument, Dr Gan skilfully removed the earwax from my ear. I was pleasantly surprised that the entire process was fast and painless.

After the treatment, my hearing was reverted back to normal and I could hear perfectly. Dr Gan is pleasant, patience and personable. I highly recommend him to DxD reader who need to consult an ENT specialist. Ivan

Dr. Gan was really skilful and experienced in his surgery. Not only was the surgery a good one, his post surgery care demonstrated his up-to-date medical knowledge and skills amply. Not only was he open to questions (which puts patients at ease post operation at their vulnerable time), he was able to address the patient's and family's concerns satisfactorily and even in their comfortable language (which was an added bonus). Dr. Gan truly lives up to the Hippocratic oath of doing good to his patients.

I had loud snoring and was gasping for air at night, I could not breathe during sleep. I would wake up tired and unrefreshed. I also had constant left sided nose blocked and sinus sensitivity.

I consulted Dr Kenny Pang in 2016. The sleep test showed that I had obstructive sleep apnea. I was not keen on the CPAP.

Dr Pang reduced my sinus turbinates, straightened my nose septum, and trimmed my palate and tonsils. It has been 2 years, I sleep so much better; I do not snore anymore and breathe perfectly through my nose. I also just brought my daughter to see Dr Kenny. He also operated on her sinus, she breathes so well now, sleeps peacefully, and because she can smell her food better now, her appetite has improved.

I visited Dr. Kenny a while back for a consultation and surgery. The process of making an appointment and surgery was fast and efficient with minimal waiting time, and facilities were good and clean. This is in stark contrast to the long waiting times I face at other clinics. After the surgery, I started sleeping much better, with less snoring and much more vivid dreams, a testament to the better quality sleep I enjoy. A great experience overall.

I brought my son to see Dr. Pang in 2015 for his persistent sinus and blocked nose. During the checkup, Dr. Pang found out that he also have enlarged tonsils. He advised us to go for surgery and my son can finally breathe properly and have qood quality of sleep after the surgery.

I myself also suffer from sinus and persistent blocked nose and it gets worse at night when I sleep in air-conditioned room where both side of my nose will be blocked and I can only breathe through my mouth and it gets very dry. After my son's successful surgery, I went ahead to get the surgery by Dr. Pang.

It has been more than 3 years since the surgery and it has definitely improved our life as we can now breathe and sleep better.

I highly recommend Dr. Pang for kids and adults who suffers from sinus problems.

My 3 year old daughter often suffers from common cold and sinus allergy leading to cough and wheezing for long periods. After not getting better and often relapsing despite medication and treatment from both GPs and Pediatricians. We finally decided to approach an ENT specialist for her condition and consulted Dr Lim Chong Teck. His treatment for my daughter was effective, leading to fast recovery and allergy control. Dr Lim is also highly knowledgeable in his field of practise and more importantly a very patient and caring physician. He is also able to explain very well the mechanics behind the malady and how the treatment cures the ailment. Would definitely recommend Dr Lim Chong for any ENT related condition even for young children.
