How we picked

Cleanliness of Facility

Firstly, the facility or clinic must not only be clean, but must be regularly sanitized. This must be a standard for all medical facilities you visit for check-ups.

Qualifications and Credentials

Always check if your chosen specialist is qualified and licensed in the ENT field of study, or Otorhinolaryngology

Good Customer Experience

Not only should you choose an expert, but also choose a facility with accommodating staff and comfortable interiors. Anything that brings ease to your visit to the specialist is a plus.

Reasonable Cost

Going to a specialist doesn’t come cheap, but it should have a reasonable cost. It is also helpful if your insurance covers this specialist’s services.

Availability and Accessibility

ENT issues can occur anytime, so it is best that you choose a specialist that you can easily contact or go to. It is also helpful if the facility is located in an accessible area.

He also extends his expertise to Endoscopic Skull Base Surgery and Rhinology after completing his training in one of the world’s top nose and sinus centers.

We included him in this list mainly because he has excelled in his private practice after working at the Changi General hospital as a Chief Rhinologist. He was also one of the senior clinical lecturers at the School of Medicine at NUS or the National University of Singapore.

In addition to his accolades, Dr. Gan is also one of the best ENT specialists accredited by the Ministry of Health and Medical Council of Singapore. He even received the HMDP or Health Manpower Development Award during his practice.

As both a respected practitioner and a recognized educator, we can see his dedication to his practice and his patients. He uses evidence-based medicine and research to ensure the best results for his patients’ health, which we consider an impressive approach.

Dr. Gan is also a recipient of many research grants, and some of his published works are among the best peer-reviewed ENT journals in the world. This only shows that he is on a continuous quest to attune his services to an ever-changing world.

Lastly, his clinic is conveniently located inside the Mt. Elizabeth Novena Hospital, along Irrawaddy Rd. We recommend you set an appointment if possible, instead of walking-in to the clinic.

Another notable ENT on our list is Dr. Dennis Chua, a Singapore-based Otolaryngologist with  Facial Plastics & Reconstructive Surgery as a sub-specialty. He is accredited by both the Ministry of Health and Medical Council of Singapore.

He also happens to be a member of the Royal College of Surgeons in Edinburg.

This doctor has over 15 years of experience as a practitioner. His clinic offers ENT treatment and services including sleep apnea, sinus and thyroid diseases, and snoring.

He is also one of the doctors specializing in ENT at the Mt. Elizabeth Novena Hospital, but he also works there as a plastic and reconstructive surgeon. He also teaches at the Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine as a lead tutor and undergraduate trainer.

One impressive thing about Dr. Dennis’ training is that he has had robotic training, also known as Da Vinci training, in South Korea. With that, he is now one of the leading experts in endoscopic and robotic surgery, as well as transoral robotic and laser microsurgery.

That said, it’s safe to say that Dr. Dennis’ clinic is one of the most advanced in ENT. In fact, we recommend them to anyone who not only wants a general check-up, but is also eyeing to get a rhinoplasty.

He also happens to be the founding member of the ASEAN Sleep Surgical Society and the International Surgical Sleep Society.

He continues to improve his knowledge on these conditions by regularly attending international courses and symposiums about sleep health. With that, he has published many medical articles about sleep endoscopy, palate surgery and sleep apnea to name a few.

Aside from his clinic at the Mt. Elizabeth Hospital, he also has another clinic at the Gleneagles Hospital. This makes him more accessible to patients from varying areas of Singapore.

Pros

  • Affordable with a wide range of services
  • A team of doctors and psychologists
  • Patient and community centered service
  • Services include pediatrics and mental health
  • Best for general ENT services

Cons

  • Not the best choice for critical ENT health concerns
  • Not located at the heart of the city
  • Psychologists are only available by appointment

Unlike the other entries on our list, Zenith Medical is not led by a single doctor. Instead, it is composed of a team of doctors and psychologists.

That being said, their expertise is not focused only on ENT. Their services encompass a wider range of services, including mental health, minor surgery, pediatrics, blood testing and even STD screening. 

So, we highly recommend them if you’re looking for an affordable go-to clinic located within the Punggol area. 

However, we do note that Zenith Medical may not be the best choice for more distressing ENT health concerns. They manage very well with general conditions, and will refer you to a more established specialist as needed.

Their ENT services cover nasal endoscopy, hearing loss, and foreign body removal in the ear, nose and throat. They are experts in handling these concerns with younger patients, so parents are assured that their kids are in good hands.

Their team also employed a large group of medical assistants to serve as staff. That means all patients and customers are assisted and accommodated during their visit.

With that said, we consider them a good choice if you have any mental health concerns in need of checking. Just be sure to set an appointment before heading over to their clinic.

Lastly, what we love most about their team is that they conduct community outreaches for counselling, blood testing, and vaccinations. We consider these initiatives as their dedication as stewards of health.
