  • Singapore National Skin Centre

    I'm thinking of seeing a doctor at the national skin centre.
    gotten a referral letter from the polyclinic too.
    is it expensive?
    does it mean that if i have the referral letter, i'll get to see the doctor at a half price?
    also, is it really effective?
    my face has a sudden bout of pimples attack lately
    cant seem to get rid of them.
    i used to have VERY nice complexion, but its soo ruined now grrrr

      I have been there as a private patient. I heard that being subsidised you pay a lot less. However, you can't choose your doctor. Personally, I would go as a private as I would rather choose my own doctor. I hear different doctors have different special interest. Say, I would feel comfortable going for a senior consultant who specializes in Dermatological & Laser Surgery if I was going for laser treatment to remove my pigmentation spots. I have been happy with the results so far and their services.

      check out the list of the doctors available.

        btw, the $21 does not include medication right?

          $21 is only for the consultation. But the medication is heavily subsidised also

              Yes Dory, to get the subsidy, you have to get a referral from a doctor in polyclinic.

                      been there to treat my eczema but it turned out :booty:

                      the consultation was expensive but the medicine is real cheap, i got 2 tubes of cream around $5 plus but it doesn't worked on me.. has been using it faithfully yet no effect at all..

                      asked the doc wad's the cause of the ecezma and she simply told me it's small matter n don't scratch the wounds... she *** ensure me my wounds will heal in two weeks time... BUT until now it doesnt heal and got worse!! it's only i visited Dr Ong at Maple clinic den everythings starts to work well

                          i just have to continue the cream
                          no more antibiotics for me.

                          consultation was approx 50plus for the 1st visit
                          after that it was 40plus

                              it is worth it to get the referral letter. It save alot of $$$. You wont regret of this. I remembered that the first visit, there will be 2 consultants. 1 Junior and 1 senior to confirm your skin condition. thus, the cost is higher.
