I have accumulated more than 18 years of clinical practice, and am well-versed in managing both adult and children ENT problems such as ear infections, hearing loss, voice disorders, snoring and sleep disorders, salivary gland disorders and thyroid swelling.
I was awarded a clinical rhinology fellowship award by the Ministry of Health to train in Europe to expand Singapore’s repertoire in the management of rhinology, endoscopic skull base surgery and sinonasal allergy, where I trained under world-renowned rhinologist Professor Wytske Fokkens and endoscopic skull base surgeon Professor Christos Georgalas.
During my tenure as a consultant at Tan Tock Seng Hospital, I started the allergy and immunotherapy service to manage difficult nasal allergies and smell disorders.
I was the lead ENT tutor and adjunct lecturer at Nanyang Technological University’s Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine, a senior clinical lecturer at National University of Singapore’s Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine, and a core faculty member in the National Healthcare Group ENT residency programme.
I have published in local and international journals and collaborated with several international centres like Beijing Tongren Hospital to improve the management of chronic rhinosinusitis. I also received a Singapore Clinician-Investigator Award for my work on allergic rhinitis at the 2011 Singapore Health & Biomedical Congress.
I am a member of the American Rhinologic Society, European Rhinologic Society, the Allergy and Clinical Immunology Society (Singapore) and the Asia-Pacific Society of Thyroid Surgery. I am also an executive member of the Society of Otorhinolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery of Singapore.

The doctor suggested that I continue my exercise and only gave me antibiotics and saline liquid to clean my nostrils. But I don’t feel much improvement in my nose and my breathing. Although it is true that doing exercise helps me to breathe easily. Is it true that the problem is only about sensitive nerves inside my nostrils, Doctor? Or is it sinusitis? But I have never had a headache in a cold place like people with sinusitis usually do.
