The Endocrine Clinic is a 6-minute walk from the Novena Station bus stop. It has a second location in Orchard Road, however, it is unavailable between 1 pm to 2 pm.
This medical establishment is known for its commitment to providing holistic and high-quality medical care to every individual. To achieve this, it offers a personalized program or treatment that fits based on the client’s needs.
This clinic performs around 250 thyroid biopsies a year and the success rate in achieving an acceptable result for any diagnosis is 99%!
The Endocrine Clinic specializes in treatments such as fine needle aspiration biopsy. This procedure is most recommended for those who want to check if they have breast cancer.
It is performed in the laboratory during which a very thin needle is used to withdraw cells from the thyroid. An ultrasound is used to localize the abnormal tissue and assist with the placement of the needle within the nodule.
The extracted cells are then examined under a microscope to diagnose if it is indeed cancerous.
We also received plenty of positive feedback from past clients. They mentioned that the doctors are prompt in their diagnoses.
This is something that most individuals require since treatment intervention is critical in cancer cases.
However, we received plenty of negative comments from the clinic’s staff for being rude. There was one instance when a patient was turned down for a blood test.
The staff did mention to the client that the blood test can’t be done because the doctor is not around at that time.
Nevertheless, we believe the situation could have been handled better by offering a follow-up appointment, which sadly, they did not do.

Arden Endocrinology Specialist Clinic is only a 7-minute walk from the Revival Center Church bus stop. It is unavailable between 12 pm to 2 pm on weekdays and is closed very early on Saturdays.
It also does not have a second location in Singapore, making it quite inaccessible for most individuals.
Nevertheless, Arden Endocrinology is well-renowned in the field of endocrinology. It has comprehensive services for clients who need screening, tests, or diagnosis.
The clinic is equipped with multiple screening methods including electrocardiogram, 24-hour ambulatory blood pressure monitoring, and blood testing to detect early complications.
Its focus is on the treatment of diabetes, thyroid problems, and other endocrine issues. Moreover, it has a department dedicated to surgeries.
As a clinic specializing in metabolic, general, and upper gastrointestinal surgery, Arden Endocrinology delivers comprehensive and modern bariatric and oncological surgical services.
Having said that, if you require holistic and thorough care for diabetes, this medical establishment is highly recommended.
Moreover, clients also mentioned to us that the staff and doctors here work in harmony, which makes diagnosis faster with less idle time.
Their efficient logistics enable individuals to get results faster and therefore help them get treatment as soon as possible.
The only downside we gathered from client interviews is the long queues, particularly for consultations.

Moreover, this establishment is also partnered with other specialist doctors to provide their clients with multi-disciplinary help for their conditions.
The patients we interviewed noted the doctor’s relaxed attitude, which enables them to work with individuals of all ages. For instance, a client noted that the doctors were very compassionate when they were working with his father who has dementia.
However, the rates are relatively more expensive than its competitors. If budget is a priority, we suggest checking our other entries on this list.

Dr. Warren Lee’s Pediatrics is found on Orchard Boulevard. It is just next to the Aft Cuscaden Road bus stop.
However, it is unavailable between 1 pm to 2:30 pm on weekdays and does not have a second branch.
On the bright side, this establishment is well known for treating individuals of all ages, including individuals with developmental issues related to childhood development.
This clinic is led by Dr. Warren Lee, who’s trained as a pediatrician in Singapore and in pediatric endocrinology at the Royal Children’s Hospital in Melbourne. He has more than 15 years of clinical experience.
The clients we interviewed positively commented on Dr. Warren’s practical advice to help with common diabetic issues through basic health and fitness guidelines.
For those who need diagnosis treatments, Dr. Warren’s clinic is equipped with several glucose measurement devices, which measure glucose levels for diabetic clients.
However, we gathered some clients who disliked the expensive consultation fees of this medical establishment. Moreover, some claimed to have paid more than the time they used.
For instance, a patient paid for a 60-minute consultation but it ended prematurely, around 45-minutes. We understand that the session may have ended early because things might have been resolved.
During these instances, the clinic should be able to adjust the fees and make the customers pay only for the time they used.
