I have a lot of problems with my back and neck for around 2 years that has caused me a lot of pain in my life.

Due to that, I decided to check Dr Ng out because I've received a lot of good feedback from friends and family about Dr Ng, and he’s able to advise me on my sleeping posture and how to support my neck. In addition to that, I really appreciate it that he offers non-invasive options, which makes me feel that I’m in safe hands.

After seeking his advice, my problems have improved and I feel less pain.

Dr Sean Ng is a very cheerful and nice doctor that offers non-invasive solutions based on my medical problems.

In addition to that, he is also very patient with me.

As I was pretty worried about my condition, he made sure that I am at peace and made sure to answer my queries well. This is my follow up visit post-MRI scan and it’s been quite good so far.

Dr Ng is helpful with prescriptions and helps lessen the pain in my lower back. He’s a very friendly and cheerful person to talk to, and he’s also very reassuring. I will be back again in two months to get my supplements.

My nephew had an accident in school during recess. A boy was running across the canteen and collided into my nephew. Luckily he did not hit his head and managed to break his fall with his hands. He seemed ok at first but later complained that his wrist hurt. On a friend's recommendation we decided to see an orthopaedic surgeon and brought him to see Dr Henry Chan. Good thing we went to see Dr Chan because it turned out to be a mild displacement and fracture We didn't realise back then but it could otherwise have affected his growth. Luckily my nephew is perfectly fine now and he actually remembers Dr Chan very fondly. I recommend Dr Chan for child injuries because he is jovial, calm and very good with kids!

Ballroom dancing is my hobby. I started after my children had grown up and at first it was just to past the time. Very soon I got to meet many many friends and in the blink of an eye 10 wonderful years of dancing passed.

The pain started with slight ache at the right especially when the knee is bent for a long time. Slowly it became a bad pain that wouldn't go away. Even climbing stairs also pain. I did acupuncture, tried tui na and visited a chiropractor but no help.

Finally the pain became very bad and I had to stop dancing to rest. I got to know Dr Henry through a friend's recommendation, thinking that I may have to replace my knees. I find Dr Henry to be very knowledgeable and kind. He explained that I have osteoarthritis or cartilage degeneration. Instead of knee surgery, he suggested that I try a less invasive viscosupplement injection first.

Of course I was sceptical initially because I had already tried many treatments, but I am so glad I trusted him. After the injection, my knee pain improved. These days I still enjoy my dancing, but I also learned to take it easy. Thank you Dr Henry for allowing an old lady like me to continue with her hobby. I will introduce all my dancing kaki to you ok! Best wishes to you doctor!

Dr. Siow Hua Ming is one of the most competent doctors I have ever had the pleasure to meet, both here in Singapore and in the US (my home country). I’ve come to him for several cortisone injections that I’ve needed, and Dr. Siow has always shown and offered such genuine empathy and care that it has made my painful situations so much more bearable. And the results of cortisone injections are magical! Thank you, Dr. Siow, for making my hands, wrist and feet painless!

Dr. Tan Ken Jin's specialty is in the area of Foot and Ankle disorders and I had attended a talk by him before I saw him for my own problems, so I can tell you that he is very knowledgeable. I had a sharp pain in my ankle and my GP was not helpful in any way, so I went to Dr Tan Ken Jin. 

An appointment was hastily made and after my consultation, Dr Tan diagnosed that I suffered a micro-injury to my Achilles tendon.

I was ordered to put on an ankle guard with paddings so as to soften the impact on my heel when I walk. Within a week of putting the ankle-guard, my ankle pain became bearable and now it has completely recovered.

If you have any ankle or foot related problems, I highly recommend Dr Tan Ken Jin!

I had an Open Reduction & Internal Fixation surgery for my fractured first metacarpal & trapezium in my right hand by Dr Lee Eu Jin.

I am very satisfied with Dr Lee and the team for their professionalism and their willingness to answer all of my questions. In spite of my apprehension, they were able to assure me along the way and I felt that I was in capable hands throughout the procedure, and during the follow-ups.

Dr Lee was also willing to share his knowledge to sate my curiosity whenever I wanted to find out more about the biological processes happening in my hand.

Kudos to the team, and thank you!

I was a Fibromyalgia and WAD patient of Dr Bernard Lee for two years. My wife was also treated by him for acute headache pain. I would never forget the first time I met him when I had acute pain at my neck and right upper limb. I had at that point of time lost all hopes of recovery. I felt depressed after repeatedly being told off by all doctors that my pain was imaginary and turned down by them to investigate my pain further.

Dr Bernard Lee checked my pain with skillful pressure at my trigger point and told me with great compassion that he believed me and he would do his best to treat me. My conditions had been stabilised by him although the journey to recovery with fibromyalgia was uncertain and frustrating. He ignited me with renewed hope as he kept researching on the best medical technique to overcome all forms of chronic pain. 

He is absolutely the best doctor I have ever seen!

My dad is in his 70s and he was knocked down by a motorcycle when he alighted his bus in Jan 2015. He injured his leg and got a very deep cut which resulted in an infection. We were very concerned about his condition given his age and my dad was also very worried as he was in great pain. Even though Chinese New Year was just around the corner, we went ahead to get Dr Lim Kay Kit to operate on my dad. With Dr Lim's professionalism and great care rendered to us, my dad recovered very quickly and we got to enjoy our Chinese New Year in Feb. Dr Lim even went to the extent of arranging a nurse to visit us during Chinese New Year to make sure the wound was healing well. I would strongly recommend Dr Lim Kay Kiat to anyone seeking a professional surgeon.

I had a labrum and ligament tear on my right hip. I experienced a sudden excruciating pain in my right leg, every step I took felt like an electrical shock. I rushed to the A&E and initial x-rays showed nothing until they called orthopaedic specialist Dr Tan Mak Yong. His prediagnosis was accurate, I had a labrum tear from an accidental slip. He discovered this by calling for more detailed x-rays and MRIs. He explained such injury occurs when one slips without falling but in breaking the fall, strains one's joints.

I almost chickened out but Dr Tan was patient and understanding, and advised me to research online (even watched online surgeries done). Labrum surgeries were relatively new in orthopaedic field, hence it was crucial to have an experienced surgeon.

With his knowledge and experience, he performed 2 keyhole surgeries successfully on me with 6 artificial bones sewn in.

Dr Tan Mak Yong is a godsend!

Dr Lim Yi Jia is a very caring and intelligent doctor.

After my critical car collision, I had a damaged shoulder and neck injuries. Dr. Lim treated it and gave me some very good advice that most doctors wouldn't have. He suggested that I take some supplements so that my shoulder and neck would heal without a surgery, so that I can get back to my bodybuilding career. Because of that, I didn't undergo surgery and I have recovered now. 

I am very grateful to have met and been under Dr Lim Yi Jia's care!

I was referred to see Dr Lim Yi Jia when I had a severe trigger thumb pain which did not improve after numerous physiotherapy and TCM sessions.
At Dr Lim’s advice, I underwent a small surgery mid last year to relieve the compressed tendon; and not only did the wound healed well, the cut was not visible which speaks well of Dr Lim’s skills.

When I experienced an acute pain in my lower back last week, I thought of Dr Lim and consulted him immediately. Upon getting the result of the latest MRI scan, he ordered sessions of physiotherapy before the next possible step of an epidural steroid injection.

While I'm still undergoing treatment, I’m grateful to have Dr Lim attend to me. He’s extremely patient and takes time to explain my condition and recommend the most appropriate treatment.

I appreciate Dr Lim’s conservative approach of non-invasive methods and keeping surgery as the last resort. At this point, his diagnosis is that surgery would not be required. I recall when I had a similar experience about 3 years back, the doctor had recommended surgery as the next best step to correct the slipped disc.

I also appreciate Dr Lim’s friendly disposition and his sense of humor which helps alleviate my apprehension and fear, and most of all, I’m confident I’m in good hands. Thanks Dr Lim!

I was attended to by two doctors in the same clinic. The first doctor was good and explained after an x-ray that I had a simple ankle sprain.

Dr Ambrose Yung was the second doctor who saw me. He prescribed me an ankle brace which was loose and he insisted that it fulfills its function, when it obviously did not fit me (I could freely move my ankle in all directions when the brace was on).

Dr Yung came out of his office and helped to put the brace on and hurried into his office again. I felt that he was hurried and unprofessional. I ended up leaving without an ankle brace. He also recommended a compression stocking and a whole lot of painkillers, which I only had to take when required. I felt like he was very profit-oriented. He did not even ask me how much pain I was experiencing before prescribing the painkillers.

I went to see Dr.Kevin Yip for a second opinion about a sports hernia and he was absolutely clueless about it. Could not diagnose it properly and I found myself teaching him about it and prompting him in the right direction. He seemed to want to get rid of me as soon as possible without actually trying to diagnose the problem, and sent me for an ultrasound, which is well known to be quite useless in diagnosing sports hernias.

To be fair, he did say that his specialty is knee and shoulder treatment, and this is in regard to a hip injury. However, when advertising himself as a SPORTS and orthopedic clinic, he should be better equipped to deal with common sports injuries such as a sports hernia.

Overall, I felt that he had no knowledge whatsoever about my condition and was totally unequipped to deal with it. Also, he was very hurried and unprofessional and did not seem to care to listen to what I had to say.

If you are looking to see him about a sports injury, I think he is the wrong person to go to.

Dr Kevin Yip removed my brother-in-law's lump near the neck area. He did a good job as the scar was not obvious and the lump turned out to be benign.

My brother-in-law was very pleased with everything. He was recommended by a friend to see him (as our experience with other doctors has not been good). The other doctors we saw scared us with the worst possible outcomes.

We are very comfortable with Dr Yip as he did not worry us, but was still straight-forward.

Bunions are a common condition that a lot of Singaporeans suffer from. The malaligned bone is not caused by wearing tight shoes, although that can worsen the condition. Bunions run in families, because foot type (shape and structure) is hereditary, and some types are just more prone to bunions than others.
