Overall rating Answered my questions Made me feel confident Staff professionalism Overall waiting time After care follow-up
I’m a patient who followed Dr Ng after he came into private practice, and I first met Dr Ng Siew Weng when he was still at Singapore General Hospital (SGH). I underwent a breast reconstruction with Dr after I was diagnosed with breast cancer. He took the fat from my stomach to reconstruct my breasts.
I was initially very afraid of the procedure, but Dr Ng talked to me and reassured me. I’m a person who’s very afraid of pain, but he explained to me that the pain was very manageable. After the breast reconstruction procedure, the pain during recovery was really manageable. My recovery was pretty fast. I was up on my feet within one week, and I could go out of the house within a month.
If I had remained at SGH, I wouldn’t need to pay as I have insurance that covers all my medical bills in a government hospital. But I trust Dr Ng therefore I’m followed him into his private practice and willing to pay the bill myself. Dr is really a good doctor and he gave me back my confidence.
