Recommended here by my best friend. Really want to thank Dr Lim for being professional and simply just great at his job. I have had a couple of bad experiences with other doctors, and before this, used to fly overseas just to get my fillers and botox done. The first thing that strikes you about Dr Lim is how humble and down to earth he is. He assesses the situation well and gives you a succinct solution on how to best proceed from your current state.

This isn't my first time to an aesthetic doctor, and you can tell he knows what he's doing. He quickly pinpointed the areas for the fillers to get the best effect and surprisingly recommended me to postpone the botox. The procedure was quick, efficient and done with as little pain as possible. Even brought me a drink after we were done! The result is one of the better experiences I've had doing fillers -- natural and leave me looking healthy and younger. I can sincerely recommend Dr Lim to the next girl who comes along.

Everyone in my family has freckles, my grandparents, my parents, and especially me. I've always been very concerned about how I could manage this problem, since I've got alot of freckles and some melasma from an earlier bout of rash near my neck and face. My cousin was the one who introduced me to Dr David, saying he was really good at dealing with freckles, and I'm very glad to have taken that recommendation.

Dr David really takes his time when it comes to understanding the situation. I remember being really surprised when he presented the options to me and even took time to understand the budget I was working with. It made me feel really taken care of by a professional -- even before treatment started! I chose to start out with creams, and found them to be effective in removing and lightening most of the pigmentation areas. It was only after my 3rd review that Dr David discussed using laser treatment to finish up the more stubborn spots. 2 sessions into the laser treatments already, I must say I feel great.

My family and co-workers have commented about how different I look, and I feel confident putting on less make up to cover the blemishes. My time with Dr David is always comfortable, the staff take care of me well. Considering how I've managed to stay within budget, I'd say this is money well spent. Thanks Dr David, couldn't have done it without your hard work and expertise.

The staff here is great. I feel welcome and ready to start improving. Past my 30s, I've felt that the skin around my chin and cheeks weren't as firm as before. Asking around, I discovered Dr Chua. Came for a consultation to see what I could do to solve my problems about a month ago.

I was initially concerned that I would be sold something without quite understanding what was going on, but I was pleasantly surprised. Every step is explained. Dr Chua answers many of my questions carefully and with detail. Dr Chua talks fast, but is very patient and clear. I feel well taken care of. 2 sessions of Ultraformer HIFU later, I can already see signs of improvement -- my chin and jaw visibly more defined. I was concerned about the slight pain I felt during my first session, but Dr Chua was very assuring and put me at ease. The redness from the treatment also subsided before the next morning. Thus far, I'm very impressed with the results. Will be back for more.

A very nice experience. I researched dermatologists and now know why everyone was so happy and enthusiastic about Dr. Ho.

She is clearly very knowledgeable and trained, but is also really pleasant and personable and communicates so clearly. SO helpful. Her staff is also very warm and welcoming. I wish I had a sixth star to give this Dr. and clinic!!

Wow... what a great experience! I've had my moles checked periodically since I was a kid. I've visited perhaps a dozen different clinics in Australia, England, Canada and Singapore. Dr. Stephanie Ho was 100% the best experience of all these. It's hard to find a doctor in Singapore with experience looking at Caucasian skin, but Dr. Ho has tons of experience both in Asia and Europe.

Even better... when I needed to have a mole removed she was able to do it on-the-spot at her onsite clinic.

I'm so happy and relieved to have found this clinic, and have already sent a message to my friends recommending this place for their annual skin check.

I had a bad experience using a chemical peel, and the after effects of it were disastrous. My skin peeled for months and my once even toned skin became dry and patchy; even make up couldn't hide it all! I went to the NSC and it did nothing for me at all. I looked up Dr Shane Tan and fixed an appointment; my flaking and peeling stopped within days, I was confident enough to leave my house again, and i regained hope that all would be well. It's been a little over 2 weeks, and my skin has improved SO much. I had some acne scarring too that we addressed concurrently, and he recommended treatments to manage that too. Dr Tan is empathetic, and he certainly took steps to reassure me that it'll all eventually be ok - slowly but surely. I know for a fact that he is one Doctor that's going to be on my FAVORITE list; i highly recommend him. And yes, for all things skin related, it's gonna be Dr Tan, and no one else for me. You best not relocate any time soon hey!

I have been seeing Dr Colin for dermatological problems for several years since his years in NSC and when he started his private practice. Other than his strong credentials and depth of experience in dermatology, I find his passion and concern for patients more admirable.

He has always been well informed with my condition and treatments and keen to share any latest treatments which could improve my condition. He is also very friendly and always a source of positive encouragement to me. Would definitely recommend his medical services to anyone who is looking for a reliable skin doctor.

5 stars for his dedication and attentiveness towards helping me to address my concerns relating to loss of facial volume. He is always very gentle with the botox and filler injections on my cheeks, under eyes and nasolabial fold areas. During the injections or treatments, I can always feel his sincerity and his care and concern as he ensures the procedures are as painless as possible. As compared to other aesthetic surgeons, he is definitely more dedicated and meticulous, always ensuring the results are perfect. His advice to enhance my look are never wrong and had perfectly made me look naturally younger. I would highly recommend Dr David Deng if you want to receive the most attentive treatment and achieve the exact look that you have been wishing for.

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.

Dr Lynn Chiam was great. Very professional, clear and concise in her explanation.

Dr Priya is our family's loved Dermatologist. Not only is she knowledgeable, her medical advice is both effective and professional. She is very helpful as well. Recently my baby grandson had patches of redness on his cheeks and arms. Dr Priya was able to immediately identify the cause and prescribed some ointment and wash. She said it will clear up within 3-5 days and IT DID!!!! I would rate her consultation and charges reasonable and she does not oversell her products.

I had a patch on my head from alopecia areata and I've been trying to see several doctors but none of them were working for me. Then a friend recommended me Dr. Oon Beng Bee.

I went there, he was really professional! Checking my medical record and meticulously tracing my head to check if I had more patches. Then he did 3 injections on the patch, where in a month, baby hair grew!!

I came back for my check up and he found out that the root cause of my illness was from thyroid disease. Turned out that it was true after doing a blood test.

I'm happy that it was an early detection for the thyroid. Now I'm totally cured.

Dr Oon is a superb medical specialist. He is not about being all smiles and is a man of few words.

The medical care he has given me and also my 2 daughters for the past 10 years cannot be expressed in a few words. Without his experience and knowledge, we would not have brought our eczema under control. A good doctor is one that helps you improve your quality of life.Thank you Dr Oon!

30 Apr 2018

I visited Dr. Oon a month ago from a referral by a GP for a specialist opinion on my severe skin allergic reaction from food which I went to A&E for. Not only was the clinic unable in terms of technical capability to provide further medication/testing/investigation, the lack of current knowledge of skin allergy testing available in Singapore was really disappointing. He was not aware if food dyes allergy testing was possible in any of the clinics in Singapore - which he said he would call up National Skin Centre to ask, and 1 month later I have not heard back.

His lack of advice even at multiple prompting for any opinion was really a waste of my visit. Although AVIVA insurance covered the fees, I am still really appalled at the level of incapability of a clinic listed to be a skin clinic.

I go to Dr Tan more for eczema than for my acne problems
The receptionist there are the best ever!
He is the cutest sweetest doctor you can ever meet! Seriously, he really really cares.
But again, I think he is more specialized for eczema or like skin diseases rather than acne and stuff. I did try to go to him for acne once, and well he recommended a few things to clear my acne. Basically, he just doesn't have those private brand lotions and stuff like other dermatologists. Anyway, I will always go to him for my eczema issues!

17 Jan 2018

She misdiagnosed me with rosacea acne and told me to do a series of microderm and laser treatment that will cost 5000 plus. On top of that shoved me a bunch of facial products that cost 300! She also gave me pills that didn't work on my acne at all. After reading several articles on it myself, I was more convinced it was not. Then I went to see Dr. Seow Chew Swee who happens to be her teacher at one point! He confirmed my doubt...NOT acne rosacea!

Dr Patricia is by far the best. I had Eczema on my legs. 4 past dermatologists couldn't fix it.  Dr Patricia took 1 look, gave me lotion, its gone. Plus she removed 2 moles of mine that turned out to be dysplastic(pre-cancer) I am at high risk due to family history.

She is the only dr who spotted them!

I also went to the skin centre and was told oh they just look dysplastic, just wait another 6 months and come back then, we will see if they change. no thank you, i dont want to wait and see if i get cancer!!!!

Dr. Patricia is very good. Doesn't take any chances, very smart, very kind. I would recommend her to anyone.

Dr Goh is very experienced and is not the kind of doctor who would want you to buy a lot of medicines for his own profit. In fact, he asks me to buy the products in stores outside as they are much cheaper there. I like to see him when I have a skin problem. I find him very professional.

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

It has been a month since my first visit to TWL clinic so I think I could give a honest review on the clinic.

I visited Dr Teo a month ago to ask how I could best improve my skin as I am a very active person, love being in the sun and need something that is effective.

Dr Teo was very patient in listening to me. I must say that Dr Teo is really professional as she was able to assess my skin in that consultation and prescribed a treatment which up till today (it has been a month since), is still effective despite my constant exposure to the sun and hot weather here.

I informed I am not good at following skincare routine and Dr Teo was not pushy about it at all. However I eventually decided to get it so that I can see for myself if it really is beneficial. She prescribed a simple routine for me so it has even easy for me to use it every day. All the product are not sticky or oily feeling and it actually feels very clean, unlike other products that I have used before.

So overall, I would highly recommend TWL clinic to anyone looking for an experienced and effective dermatology clinic. I am happy with my treatment so far!

12 Feb 2018

After years of having eczema and I could not find a doctor that could treat it, I went to TWL in hope that it would help at least a little to stop the eczema flare-ups.

She wasn’t understanding at my condition at all, commenting at how bad it was (which was the very reason why I came to her) and questioning the doctors I went to which put me off during consultation because that wasn’t helpful at all. Speaking of which, I also didn’t learn more about my own condition with the fact that she’s a dermatologist.

After a not very pleasant consultation, she prescribed me with cream that wasn’t suitable and my skin didn’t react well to it (became more flaky). 
I also used the shower gel and lotion, ate the antihistamine she gave, didn’t help but brought another round of flare-ups which became worst this time.

Her unprofessionalism contrary to the reviews I read online made this entire experience really disappointing not to mention the exorbitant price that was charged for a short consultation.

13 Apr 2018

Professional and friendly service from doctor teo and her team! Informative and easy to understand explanations which break down complicated medical terms for a layman like me. Particularly like the medicated shampoos prescribed to treat my scalp condition, highly recommended!

13 May 2018

I've always had problem skin (breakouts, acne, oily skin) so I don't expect a miracle, but I needed help. I did a little research and was able to book an appointment very easily on line with Dr. Said. Unfortunately unlike when I lived in the US, my insurance doesn't cover dermatology, so it wasn't cheap, but getting in and out was a breeze. Dr. Said was very easy to talk to, and I felt like he really took the time to understand my skin, the problems I was having, and a long term plan for it. They do sell their own line of skin care (moisturizer, and face wash) which I did purchase, but it's optional, and he loaded me up with antibiotics because I needed them dearly for my poor skin. I was in and out in less than an hour, and felt a lot better having a plan moving forward with my skin.

Dr Priya Sen is the best dermatologist I have ever been to! Her treatment worked in such a short frame of time and made a big difference. Her own brand of medications are very effective and I am sure because of how well they worked, I didn't need to do any big surgeries after all.

Dr Priya is by far the best Dermatologist I have encountered over my 11-year stay in Singapore. Not only is she incredibly knowledgeable and professional but she is also non-judgmental. Having spent far too much time in the sun, Dr Priya advised various treatments to lessen my risk of getting skin cancer, treating both my face and chest area for Actinic Keratosis both with great success. Finally, I am happy in my own skin.

I am a cancer patient and have been on chemo for over a year. One of the side effects of chemo is that i have hyper pigmentation/melasma all over my face. It was especially bad on my cheeks and forehead, as if i had tattoos. At one point i was very depressed. My hyper pigmentation was so bad that my oncologist referred me to dermatologist Dr. Priya Sen . Within a few months of treatment, my pigmentation lightened tremendously. I am really grateful to her because under her care my melasma is almost all gone now. As a bonus my skin's condition improved too.

I've been to several doctors and dermatologists for my acne problems. So far, this clinic, or rather a specific doctor, Dr. Melvin has provided me with the skin care regimen and medications that have worked pretty well.

He is very honest about my skin condition and suggests only procedures that will benefit me. If there isn't a need or if my skin is not ready for such a procedure e.g. laser, he wouldn't recommend/ rush me to do it. He would suggest what is best for me. But the decision to take up his advice is entirely up to the patient. No pressure or hard selling. Unlike some of the past doctors that I have seen, he is not one that is out to rip you off.

Dr Phay is very personable and makes a point to learn about you and your life. She is very meticulous in her examination and her treatment is not just medication but lifestyle changes too. She doesn't push unnecessary cosmetic procedures and only suggests what your skin needs.

The only problem is that Dr Phay is very popular and the wait for an appointment with her can be up to a week.

I have consulted Dr Eileen Tan for my hair problem. I was told it is male pattern hair loss. She walked me through various treatment methods, including hair transplant. However, she suggested to start with propecia as hair transplant is the last defence for the hair loss. She even warned me of the potential side effect of taking propecia, which could result in temporary impotent for some people. She did mention a few sessions of transplants are required, depending on the seriousness of the problem. I eventually chose to take propecia as it is cheaper and now my hairs are growing and my manhood is not suffering as a result of taking the drug. I recommend consulting her for hair loss problems.

I went to the dermatologist to have a few suspect moles on my torso checked out and see if they were dangerous. While I was there I asked about having a few removed from my face for cosmetic reasons. By the way, the doctor I saw gave the best consultation I had ever had. Not rushing, listened intently, good questions about medical history without being invasive, gave a really thorough examination and made no false promises about scarring -I highly recommend Dr. Chris Foo if you get referred to him. He did a fantastic job - good bedside manner and excellent surgery. In spite of having stitches on the knuckle of my big toe, I was walking pretty comfortably the next day. He even sent me a personal text message the next day to see how I was feeling and if I had any questions. Maybe that is the standard practice here but I was really impressed.

After seeing another dermatologist for the last 6-7 months and not really making too much progress except to spend a TON of money each month to get minimal results, I did a bit of research and had a friend recommend Dr. Tan Hiok Hee who was excellent. The office in Novena medical Center was easy to find, and I waited for about 10 minutes. The doctor was very pleasant went through my history, things I've tried and haven't tried, and frustrations from my previous dermatologist. Unlike the other place I didn't get bombarded with face wash, lip balm, this topical, that medicine, and so on. He told me exactly what I needed and that's the only thing I purchased. First initial consultation is $120. All in all positive experience.

I normally don't google for specialists since the best way to find one would be through recommendations from people you know and trust. So ever grateful for chancing upon Dr Mark Tang from The Skin Specialists & Laser Clinic online when I was desperately looking for options after getting eczema flare ups on my face for weeks! The flare ups were so bad, and I was tired of covering them up. Within 3-4 days of following doc's recommended skincare routine, my skin had almost completely cleared up. He "reset" my skin and gave it only what it needed. It was all clear within a week. He is both empathetic, and very passionate about care for the skin. These are the things that set special doctors apart from regular ones! I am now enjoying a simplified routine, with half the steps and half the time. Love it! Thanks doc!!

I never really had a family physician and I never really had a consistent GP. Dr Mark Tang is probably one of the only doctors I've seen at the National Skin Centre since my teenage days when I developed eczema and had some random growth on my face. Recently, I had a very bad acne outbreak and really needed a dermatologist to find out what was happening. I did a quick Google Search and I realised that Dr Tang has just set up his own dermatology practice! What was even more amazing was how Dr Tang could remember most details of my life that I shared with him at my various appointments previously - e.g. doing a law degree, where I went to study, that I used to work in Public Relations. I realised what sets a doctor apart from others is not just about how good they are at treating you, but how they manage the patient relationship as it shows their dedication towards helping us.

Dr Ee even knew what my ‘internet diagnosis’ was before I mentioned it - ha! Even though appointments were running slightly behind, I asked if he could do a quick check of my moles while I was there. It was no problem, the check was chaperoned by a female nurse and he was efficient yet thorough. I would have no issues recommending Dr Melvin Ee.

I had never done anything to my face before. But after my treatment of acupluse with Assurance Skin, Laser & Aesthetics. My skin condition improved a lot. Younger, clearer and smoother skin, I decided to do my fillers with Dr. Wong too. The procedure was really quick and practically painless for me. If you are looking to do fillers or anything, look no further. Dr. Wong is very professional and I completely trust him.

I'm such a huge fan of Dr Lee Mun Heng, for so many reasons. The most important one is because he's so friendly and happy everytime I see him. His vibes is all smiles, and welcoming.

I don't trust very many doctors, but Dr Lee is a perfectionist in his work, while knowing what you need, and what you don't need. That to me is what makes a good doctor - sometime that will be honest in his job, and with any requests. 

He's helped me through my melasma, with some of the best advice and laser treatments. He's also helped my tired skin from photo shoots.

A true wizard! Every woman's best friend.
