    Recommend a good doctor for ENDOCRINE Disease

    Hi All,


    My fren would be so happy if anyone could recommend a good doctor for endocrine disease. The real problem is hypothroidism due to radioactive iodine. Prior before was hyperthrodism. Now is hypo...was on thyroid hormone (eat one tab a day) but soon dicover for past 1 year the TSH level is not very stabil. Later she complain of anxiety attack. Was a patient at a local gov hospital for past few years. Later decided to discharge since they cant seems to help with these problems. I hope anyone can recommend some good doctor to help. Her location is Putra heights.

    Thank you

    PUTRAJAYA HOSPITAL is a specilist hospital for endocrine dieseases. Please go to any government clinic or other government hospital to get a reference letter. The patient will then only be charged with 3rd class rate.

    It is very easy to "build" a super-duper hospital. Money only mah (including MINE). When it comes to staffing, it is another matter. Specialists can be sent for training. After a while they leave for private practice. Even when they are supposed to be there, frequently called away to attend meetings, attend to VIPs, etc. So only medical officers to see the bulk of patients. Putrajaya would be worse in this respect as it serves an area crawling with VIPs.

    According to Dr.Arlene Ngan, retired endocrine specilist doctor at SJMC,
    Putrajaya Endocrinology centre has special facilities and equipment not available in other general hospitals, and their staff consists of highly trained specialists to investigate and treat these conditions.

    Dr Arlene Ngan is like a legend amongst the existing practicing endo specialists. She used to be with SJMC before retiring and she has trained many endo specialists along the way. I heard her name again at the Penang GH last week from another specialist...

    Dr Ngan used to work hand-in-hand with a Dr Richard Veerapan (brother to Michael Veerapan - the musician with Asiabeat) who was a well-known neuro-surgeon. I had consulted both Richard and Arlene back in the 80s.. sadly Richard is now practising in Canada.

    If not referred by government clinics or hospitals, the patient will be charged the class 1 rate ie very expensive.

    No trees were killed in the sending of this message. However a large number of electrons were terribly inconvenienced.
