A day in clinic typically begins at 8 or 9am. I see a diverse variety of patients at our Robertson Walk clinic, where in addition to regular GP services, we provide Men’s health, Women’s health, Sexual health services and Anonymous HIV Testing.
Besides consulting for the usual common ailments, many patients come for sexual health screening/STD testing and anonymous HIV testing. I also see patients for men’s health issues like erectile dysfunction or low testosterone, as well as women’s health issues like menstrual abnormalities or contraceptive counselling. On a daily basis, I see patients for potentially sensitive health issues which many feel awkward or are hesitant to talk about and see a doctor for.
One of the most fulfilling aspects of my job is being able to reassure patients, normalise their concerns and provide them with a safe space to open up and approach these issues and get treatment.
In between seeing patients, I also answer questions pertaining to various health topics on our clinic’s online forum and write health-related blog articles to contribute to the clinic blog, both of which are part of our initiatives to increase awareness about men’s health, women’s health and sexual health issues which still tend to be under-recognised in Singapore.
