Hello and welcome to my Medical Blog!
After much consideration, I have finally decided that it is alright for the world to know that my cyber-foodiepersona ieat is really a Family Doctor. But over here in this blog, I'm itreat instead.
I have been toying with the idea of personalizing our service through the use of the internet since we starting our clinic last year, but really did not know of a suitable platform.
Then of course came my food blog which opened my mind to many possibilities. This medical blog will serve as a platform for me to pen down some of the thoughts that come to me while working in my clinic. I want it to be something that our existing patients will find useful in that they have a family doctor whom they can interact with in between visits.
It is not my intention to go into details of medical conditions, nor will I be offering medical opinions in the blog. To do so will be to create jobs for my lawyer friends. But I will be writing (I hope) about things that affect our everyday lives here in Singapore.
One of my interest area is childhood asthma which I feel is a condition that can be better managed in Singapore. Asthma affects 1 in 5 children here and is growing and most parents do not know how to manage it. I will be writing from the point of view of both a doctor as well as a parent of 2 young children, so I hope it will be relevant to other parents out there.
I would love to hear from you as to what medical issues are of interest to you which you would like to read about. So please write to me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Hope you will find the blog useful and entertaining.
