Overall rating Answered my questions Made me feel confident Staff professionalism Overall waiting time After care follow-up
I was devastated when I found out I had breast cancer last year. I am single, in my early 30s. The thought of mastectomy is unthinkable. My breast surgeon suggested that I see Dr Ng in Jan 2017 for a second opinion for breast reconstructive surgery after I had consulted with another plastic surgeon.
My first meeting with Dr Ng was very pleasant. He came across as very professional and confident. Various surgical methods and the recovery process were clearly explained detailing the pros and cons for each option and what he would recommend for my case. He is very experienced. His calm demeanor gave me the confidence that he is the doctor I could entrust to do my surgery. He patiently explained the procedure to my dad and sister when they had further questions for him.
The surgery went very well. Dr Ng prepared me in advance what to expect during the whole recovery process. Hence there were no surprises except for a mild rash on my thigh during my stay in the hospital, subsequently was found that I was allergic to the medication. I recovered well after the change in medication. Dr Ng and his team of nurses are very professional, friendly and caring. They often went the extra mile to instruct the ward nurses on how to take care of me.
I am very pleased with the result. I would highly recommend Dr Ng to breast cancer patients who seeks to reconstruct their breast after mastectomy. It was well worth it!
