What To Consider When Looking For A Gynaecologist In Singapore?

Dedicated to Women’s Reproductive Health for Over 20 Years
Many women become shy or uncomfortable when it comes to discussing personal issues “down there”, but the reality is this: Reproductive and sexual health are highly important for women at any stage of life.

Gynaecologists are crucial not only to prevent and treat medical conditions such as cancer, ovarian cysts and sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), but they also help to boost your fertility if you’re planning to start a family soon.

Finding the right gynaecologist for you requires patience and due diligence on your part. Here are some things to consider when looking for a gynaecologist:

Both male and female gynaecologists are medical professionals who can be equally qualified and dedicated. However, if you’re uncomfortable being examined by a male doctor or sharing your concerns with one, then a female gynaecologist may be a better fit for you.

Credentials & Accolades

The awards and titles that a gynaecologist has amassed throughout years of practice are proof of his or her reputation as a skilled and dedicated doctor. A doctor’s credentials are also one of the most telling signs that he or she is equipped with the necessary skills and knowledge to provide effective and comprehensive healthcare.

In Singapore, important accreditations you should look out for include: being certified by the Ministry of Health (MOH), the Academy of Medicine (Singapore), the Royal College of Obstetricians & Gynaecologists (RCOG), and so on.

Affiliated Medical Institutions

A gynaecologist’s affiliations and membership to reputable medical organizations and renowned hospitals can speak volumes about his or her expertise and professional standing.

Publications & Positions

A gynaecologist who is a member of a renowned medical society or organization may be skilled all the same, but one who heads or has headed such medical associations before are surely a cut above the rest. Research and academic publications written by the doctor can also speak to a doctor’s authority and specialization in his or her field.


Referrals and reviews are a great way to sieve out the truly competent and dedicated doctors from the crowd.

Convenient or Central Location

A gynaecologist located near your place or a gynaecologist located in the accessible Central region of Singapore would make for a convenient choice, as it saves you time and money spent travelling to your appointments.
