Dr Ng is a family physician who graduated from the National University of Singapore with a Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery degree in 2008. Having a keen interest in community care and family medicine, he pursued his post graduate training in the Singhealth Family Medicine Residency Programme and obtained his Master of Medicine in Family Medicine in 2016.
Having worked in various departments in the restructured hospitals (such as Internal Medicine, Geriatrics, Adult and Children’s Emergency, Paediatrics, Obstetrics and Gynaecology, General Surgery, Orthopaedics and Dermatology), Dr Ng has a wide range of clinical experience. He has also worked in the National Healthcare Group Polyclinics and Singhealth Polyclinics. The polyclinic experience has helped build up his breadth and depth of knowledge in chronic disease management in the primary care setting.
Dedicated to the continuity of care in the community, Dr Ng left the public sector and went into private primary care practice in 2016. He is now the resident family physician in Faith Clinic (Yishun). Dr Ng believes that prevention is better than cure. He tells his patients that ”Healthy lifestyle with a balanced diet and regular exercise goes a long way in the prevention of chronic diseases such as diabetes and hypertension.”
Dr Ng loves his morning cup of coffee (with low fat milk and no more than half a tea spoon of sugar). He enjoys outdoor sports such as kayaking. He will also hit the gym for regular spinning sessions to burn the calories through high intensity interval training. Approach him if you need diet or exercise advice!
