In her 3 years of experience, Renee has worked in General Surgery wards and has acquired skill sets to look after patients’ pre- and post-operatively.

Renee is also passionate in ensuring patients are knowledgeable about their disease conditions and preventive health to reduce admissions into hospitals. As a personal testimonial from a grateful patient, Renee has personally delivered medication to his house as he was an amputee and it was highly inconvenient for him to come to hospital to collect medication himself.

Our motto is "Caring Hearts, Evidence Based Minds, Skilled Hands".
The simple philosophy of our clinic consists of 3 parts:
We understand there are many concerns and anxieties when one seeks medical treatment. We aim to listen, empathize and understand the needs of all our patients. Treatment is individualized and personalized.
Evidence Based Minds
Medical science is ever changing and evolving. Scientific evidence provided can be confusing and overwhelming. Interpretation can often be misunderstood and practices that work in certain countries may not be suited for our local population. We will aim to use up to date knowledge and scientific evidence available to provide best practices and aid in decision making.
If surgery is needed we will perform diagnostic and therapeutic procedures with the highest skills available. We will aim to use innovation and technology when suitable to allow enhanced recovery. Decisions made will be explained thoroughly with the patient and their caregivers to ensure complete understanding of the benefits, risks and limitations of each procedure. Most importantly, surgery will be done safely and with the best interests of our patients.
