Dr Wong is a caring, attentive and experienced doctor. He has been looking after me since I was diagnosed with colon cancer in 2013. I have been following Dr Wong's advice and been in remission ever since.

I'm glad that I chose to see a private practice doctor rather than waiting for my turn at a public hospital.

I believe this made a huge difference in the good outcome of my condition. Thank you again Dr Wong.

Last year my aunt was diagnosed with colon cancer. She was told to wait more than a month for her appointment at a local hospital. On a friend's recommendation, we went to see Dr Wong at Mount Elizabeth Orchard.

Dr Wong is truly a knowledgeable and caring doctor. We made the right decision to choose to see a private doctor instead of waiting in the public queue while my aunt's condition festered..... and with God's grace we made the right decision to choose Dr Wong I believe he helped to save my aunt's life and we will always be grateful for his care.

Thank you so much Dr Wong. We wish you the very best.

Dr. Wong is an excellent colorectal surgeon whose main priority is making sure his patients are comfortable and get the best treatment he can offer. I visited his clinic for gastrocopy and colonoscopy scans. The results turn out that I have hermorrhoids. Gosh, I have heard enough stories of the treatment, and all the horrid post surgery experiences. While it seems like a common thing for men like me in the 40s, it's definitely not one of the thing I want to go through. Thanks to Dr Wong for his patience, encouraging words and careful treatment, I managed to pull through the 3 weeks of healing process. The clinic staffs are helpful, thorough and informative. While i sincerely hopes that I do not have to visit the clinic again, if there's any need to, Dr Wong is definitely my first choice.

It was unfortunate that my dad had to be admitted to the hospital for stomach issues last month. I chose to admit him into Mount Elizabeth Novena Hospital because of their efficiency and service.

After a quick diagnosis from the A&E doctor, my dad was asked to undergo several tests. We decided to engage Dr Desmond Wai from the Liver and Gastrointestinal Diseases Centre due to our prior pleasant experience with him when my mum was admitted in 2016.

He was reassuring, amicable and gave simple and to-the-point summary of the situation. We also found Dr Desmond Wai to be very professional and caring. His reassurance and advice have brought us much comfort. My dad was discharged within a day with everything resolved!

I saw Dr Desmond Wai after consulting other gastroenterologists, who advised my to remove my gallbladder. Dr Wai advised me otherwise and I am so glad I listened to him. Dr Wai does not insist on unnecessary surgeries and is a competent doctor. The only problem is the long waiting time, as he has many patients.

I've been under Dr Wai's care for a few years and he has my complete trust. I first went to see him for a stomach ulcer, which has since recovered. He is a caring and competent doctor, one of the best I've ever come across. I often recommended him to my friends as I know he will take good care of them.

I first went to see Dr Kieron for a nagging stomach pain, which turned out to be an ulcer. He was actually recommended to me by another doctor hence I felt comforted knowing that Dr Kieron is very well respected among his peers.

Dr Kieron is indeed very knowledgeable and gives detailed explanations. I've seen other gastroenterologists before and not all of them bother to explain much. Thus I'm grateful for Dr Kieron's care and so glad that I caught the ulcer in time because it could have led to something much more serious.

When I met Dr Jarrod Lee, I was glad that I chose him. He was super cheerful and was patient in answering my queries. I knew I was in good hands. Before I went in for the Gastroscopy, an administrative staff, Irene, was telling me that Dr Jarrod is very gentle. True enough, I did not feel any discomfort in my stomach after the Gastroscopy. No sore throat or bloating. Till now, I still cannot believe that it happened. Felt like a dream.

I had an inflamed appendix which I found out after going to the A&E. The next day, I booked an appointment with Mount Elizabeth to see Dr Denis Nyam. Unknowingly it was one of the best decisions I ever made in my life. Upon meeting Dr. Denis Nyam, I had this huge sense of relief. There was still fear but strangely it was a different kind of fear. He was the real deal. He recommended going for the surgery the next day and without any hesitation, I agreed. I was warded in Mount Elizabeth the next day. Hours before the surgery though I was anxious, yet I had this strange sense of comfort.

Dr Bertha Woon is very professional, factual, and seeing her was a pleasant experience. We had an open discussion about the "treatment plan". She wasn't pushy about prescriptions, and for my case, she was positive that it should be better in time (and after I stop breastfeeding), so she gave me an "open date". Go back only if I want to, or need to.

My friend, however, went to her and required surgery and she did it for her, all the pre-op and post-op as well. Her experience and feedback was also very positive.

Dr Quah Hak Mien turned out to be calm and humble when I saw him. He explained all the possible options and he is very ethical as he would only recommend surgery if that is absolutely necessary. 

I am happy that my piles which existed for a long time, stopped giving me problems after undergoing treatment with him. I have recommended Dr Quah to my family and friends to for gastroscopy and colonoscopy, and we are all satisfied with his care. His fees are reasonable and not sky high!

I had a tumor in my colon and had stage 4 cancer. Dr Quah Hak Mien was my surgeon.

After my surgery, from other inside sources, I got to know that Dr Quah had done the best he could for me. Firstly, I was told that he was really strict with the nurses. He checked everything in the operating theatre and made sure everything was in tip-top condition.

Next, he had arranged the operation to be the last one for the day so that he didn’t need to be constrained by time. He took a total of 2.5 hours for my operation although other doctors told me that he routinely took only slightly more than 1 hour for such operations. He was really careful with my operation but he joked about it to my family members. When he came out of the operating theatre, he told my family members that because of my size, he had to take quite a bit longer to complete my operation. It was only after I met up with my oncologist that I knew the extent of his effort. My oncologist told me that if a surgeon took out more than 10 lymph nodes for examination, it would be considered as a thorough operation. Dr Quah took out 42 lymph nodes for the examination!

I was really filled with gratitude. I also thank him for taking good care of me.

Four years back, I was diagnosed with acute colorectal cancer that was in its middle stage. Life seemed to have ended then and there as I was the only earning member and had a wife, two children and an ailing mother. Apart from excessive consumption of junk foods, my habits were sober and the doctor told me that this was a chief reason as it affected by gastrointestinal functions.

I visited several doctors and even started therapies for treating the cancer, but nothing gave me any sort of relief. After hearing from a friend, I gave Quah Hak Mien Colorectal Centre a try, and miraculously it helped me recover in much lesser time. They are one of the most effective colorectal cancer treatment facilities in Singapore who use state of the art medical technologies and revolutionary innovations. The clinic was very hygienic, upbeat and the entire staff was attentive and understanding. The surgeon who treated my case handled it with compassion and excessive care. I would like to say one thing that they put their main efforts in diagnosis first rather than putting you into unnecessary tests and medication. The costs are also very affordable and can be incurred by anyone from different walks of life. Once again I express my deep gratitude to Dr Quah Hak Mien.

You can tell that Dr Ivy Yap (her chinese name is Yap Lian Eng) has extensive experience in her field.

However, we felt as though she does not genuinely care for her patients and that we are just a source of income for her. She is expensive to consult and yet she rushed through the consultations. She would fiercely scold us and show great displeasure when we do not go for follow-up checks, even though we explained due to financial constraints it was not possible. Also, she is impatient when it comes to explaining the procedures and expects us to blindly trust her judgment. 

We actually dread our appointments with her.

Dr Francis Seow-Choen is excellent! He is such a good educator.

I had a sports hernia because of football. I went to see  Dr Teoh Tiong Ann from Mount Elizabeth Hospital in Singapore. My sports tear hernia has been dealt with by one of the best laparoscopic surgeons. I love this man! He has fixed me. Dr Teoh is very knowledgeable and skilled.

Dr Roland Chong is a reputable doctor with a lot of experience. He is friendly and professional as well. I have been his patient since 2010.

I was admitted at Mt Alvernia Hospital and they didn't have any gastroenterologists available there when I needed them, so Dr Roland Chong from Mt Elizabeth was called. He did a scope and came in again in the evening to tell me that it showed positive for bacterial infection. 

I had many questions but Dr Roland Chong had little time for me, no more than 5 minutes. I had to half-chase him all the way to wherever he was going, for my answers. Thinking back, it irritated me. Isn't it the doctor's responsibility to explain to the patient what is her condition, how it happened and what to avoid in the future? I was not expecting him to sit down for half an hour with me, just 10-15minutes.

To give him some credit, the scope and coloscopy were nicely done and I didn't feel any discomfort after the procedures.

I am a Colorectal Cancer Survivor.I chanced upon Dr. Ho Kok Sun Colorectal while doing my research online. On the day of the appointment, I had butterflies in my stomach. I could not hide my nervousness and anxiety. However, after being greeted by the warm and friendly staff, my mind was partially put to ease. I was first given some medication and I came back for the colonoscopy procedure a few hours later. Under the steady hands of Dr. Ho, my colon was examined. I felt no discomfort at all throughout the whole procedure.

I returned back to the clinic his clinic at Mount Elizabeth about a week later where he informed me of the devastating: I had developed colorectal cancer. I was thankful that the cancer was in its early stages and the chance of a complete recovery was possible. Together with Dr. Ho, we began discussing the treatment options available and we charted my road to recovery.

Dr Ng Kheng Hong is a good doctor, who is also professional and reassuring.

I had suffered from internal bleeding and was admitted to a local hospital after 1 day of checks/tests. The four doctors who were looking at the scope were not able to diagnose me or find the spot which was bleeding. In fact, they were very sure that the bleeding was not in the colon. They told me that they will operate on me the next day to find where I was bleeding from. 

I had to transfer hospitals and that is where Dr Ng Kheng Hong attended to me. He was very patient and managed to locate the spot where the bleeding occurred after 2 hours of scope.Thankfully, I recovered and was discharged 2 days later. No surgery was required!

Dr Cheong Wei Kuen has very bad bedside manners and is extremely arrogant.

I would highly recommend Dr Dean Koh as he has impeccable bedside manner and also extremely knowledgeable about this disease.

I am a 19 year old who has been suffering from pilonidal disease for the last six months and truly speaking it bothered me psychologically rather than physically. I had a cyst which didnt cause me any pain but still the thought of it present on my buttcrack bothered me a lot. So I thought its best taking care of it. I found out that cleft lift is the best treatment option and I really researched this procedure and was convinced that it is for more superior than any other exicisions and flap. procedures. However, the fact that I live in Bangladesh, the treatment here available is open excision and I was not convinced.

So I started looking for doctors outside bangladesh and finally after searching a lot of other doctor, I came across Dr Dean Koh from Singapore. He is one of the best colorectal surgeon in Singapore and in Asia. Dr Dean Koh put an end to my despair and informed me that he performs both bascom procedure (pit picking) and modified karydakis ( very similar to cleft lift). So I was elated after hearing this and convinced my mom and dad to take me to Singapore. It has been 11 days after the surgery and I have minimal pain at the site.

Dr Yap Chin Kong is an incredibly kind, caring and compassionate doctor. When I was hospitalised at Mount Elizabeth, I was blessed to have such a skilled and dedicated doctor assigned to me.

Dr Yap ensured that I was taking the right medication and that I was comfortable during my stay. He also advised the nurses to give me extra attention as I was constantly vomiting. Whenever Dr Yap attended to me at Mount Elizabeth, I always felt genuine care and concern which helped a lot in my recovery.

Dr Yap performed an endoscopy on me and knowing that I had done one before and that it had gone badly, Dr Yap was very patient and explained that I would not feel any pain and that I would be sound asleep. True to his word, Dr Yap performed the endoscopy without any issues and I was very comfortable throughout the whole procedure.

He also discovered that I had another separate issue that required a gynecologist's attention (i.e. as the entire stomach / womb area was very painful), which later resulted in an urgent surgery. If not for Dr Yap's quick thinking and attention to detail, I would have ended up in a much poorer state.

I am very grateful to Dr Yap for all the care and concern he has shown me. He has such a personal touch whenever he deals with patients and he always took the time to answer my never-ending questions in a straight-forward and respectful manner. Dr Yap left a deep impression on me as it is clear that he strives to ensure that his patients receives the best clinical outcome. Thank you so much for making a difference in my life, Dr Yap.

Endoscopy is a procedure where your doctor inserts a narrow flexible tube equipped with a camera through your mouth to examine your digestive tract. 

New advances in medical technologies allow endoscopists to do not only diagnostic procedures (identification and confirmation of disease situations) but also therapeutic (treatment of disease conditions such as removal of bile duct stones) endoscopies that would be minimally invasive and hence promote faster healing.

However, it is largely preventable with regular screening, and is curable with early detection.
