Clinic Opening Hours During Circuit Breaker

From 7th April 2020, Singapore entered Circuit Breaker period to prevent escalating numbers of Covid-19. As an essential service provider, Tham Siew Nee Skin Clinic remains open at the same operating hours. However, we have put in place additional safety measures in line with government regulations:

  • We will only provide essential medical services for urgent or acute medical problems. All aesthetic consultations will be deferred. Our receptionist may ask you the reason for your consultation when you call to make an appointment.
  • Telemedicine and refill of prescription services are available if the doctors feel it is appropriate in your case. Check out our earlier post on teleconsultation (17 March 2020) or call our clinic to enquire.
  • Our staff are taking turns to work from home. We apologise if our service is slower during this time.

We wish you good health, and stay safe during this critical period. Take care!

Tele-Consultation with Tham Siew Nee Skin Clinic using MaNaDr

The Covid-19 situation is evolving rapidly. Within the span of 1 week, various countries have declared “lock-downs” to stem the spread of the coronavirus, which the WHO has just declared as a pandemic.

Many of our patients are hesitant to come to the hospital. Our patients who are based overseas (eg. Indonesia, Malaysia) are facing difficulties coming for their medical appointments due to these lock-downs.

Our clinic is pleased to partner with MaNaDr, an online Telemedicine platform, to provide teleconsultation for our patients who are unable to come to the clinic physically. You can download the MaNaDr app from their website, register, and use the Magnifying glass icon to search for Tham Siew Nee Skin Clinic, or for Dr Tham Siew Nee or Dr Koh Hong Yi to initiate a teleconsultation session.

There are pros and cons with a teleconsultation service. The convenience of seeing a doctor from your own room has to be balanced against the downsides of not having a more detailed physical examination and lack of personal touch (both literally and physically). For new patients, we would still prefer to have you at our clinic for first consultation so that we can make a more accurate diagnosis.

We hope the pandemic will be over soon. Meanwhile, please stay safe and wash your hands.
