AIA HealthShield Gold Max is a Medisave-approved Integrated Shield Plan (IP) that has over 400 healthcare partners all over the island.
Whether you’re thinking about switching to this shield plan or are narrowing down your options for doctors, read on because this article is for you. We’ve gone through AIA’s network of specialists on your behalf to give you the best AIA panel doctors in Singapore.
Before we proceed with our picks, allow us to talk about AIA’s HealthShield Gold Max in detail, and the premiums you can expect to pay.
AIA HealthShield Gold Max Tiers and Premiums
If you’ve ever been hospitalised, then you may find MediShield Life quite limiting in terms of its inclusions and amount of coverage. In most cases, MediShield Life can only go so far, especially if you end up needing more medical procedures than expected.
This is where IPs come in handy. It allows you to choose between private and public hospitals, as well as different ward classes and doctors for treatment.
We’ve taken a look at AIA’s HealthShield Gold Max plan and listed their different tiers and corresponding annual premiums in the table below.
Premiums are based on the insured individual’s age and circumstances. Take note that premium scopes below cover individuals of all ages from 0 to 100 years old and above.

The Best AIA Panel Doctors in Singapore
If you’re ready, let’s head over to our selection of the top AIA panel doctors that Singapore has to offer, organised according to their specialties!
1. Dr. Goh Ping Ping, Asian Heart & Vascular Centre
|BEST IN||Cardiovascular Health|
|SERVICES||Cardiac Investigations, Implantable Heart Devices, Heart Surgeries/Procedures, Heart Screening|
|ADDRESS||3 Mount Elizabeth, #16-07 Mount Elizabeth Medical Centre,Singapore 228510|
|CONTACT DETAILS||+65 6344 1317 | [email protected]|
|OPERATING HOURS||Mon to Fri: 8:30 am – 1:00 pm; 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm|
Sat: 8:30 am – 1:00 pm
Asian Heart & Vascular Centre has a number of specialists in their pool of doctors, and one of them is Dr. Goh Ping Ping.
Now, what makes her stand out among her colleagues is that she’s a huge advocate of women’s heart health and preventive cardiology—and for good reason. After all, coronary artery disease is the leading cause of death among women in Singapore.
Apart from that, she also specialises in ultrasound imaging of the heart, as well as managing a broad spectrum of cardiovascular disease including heart attacks. So if heart diseases run in your family, she can help you identify and manage any warning signs before it turns to something serious.
Going into this clinic’s services, you can find several testing procedures here to make sure that patients get the most accurate diagnosis possible. Besides that, their large team of doctors are also highly skilled to handle major and minor surgeries.
So even if Dr. Goh is unavailable, you can rely on her colleagues to get the job done. No need to worry about costs since they’re also accredited by AIA.
Mild and gentle
“Dr Goh Ping Ping was my doctor when I was admitted to Mt. Elizabeth Orchard back in 2017. She attended to me in the wee hours and was so mild and gentle. Recent consultation with her was to seek second opinion. Dr Goh patiently explained and give her professional advice about my condition. I feel that she’s an understanding doctor with compassion.” —SouwHwe Choo, Google Reviews
2. Dr. Loh Poh Yen, gutCARE Digestive
|SERVICES||Gut Health and Cancer Screening, General Endoscopy, Advanced Endoscopy, Specialised Services|
|ADDRESS||Nearest Location Available Here|
|CONTACT DETAILS||+65 6443 0708 | Online Form Available Here|
|OPERATING HOURS||Mon to Fri: 9:00 am – 1:00 pm; 2:00 pm – 6:00 pm|
Sat: 8:30 am – 1:00 pm
Similar to our entry above, Dr. Loh Poh Yen belongs to a team of highly skilled doctors—this time, in the field of gastroenterology.
Based in gutCARE Digestive, Dr. Loh has earned a reputation of being an empathetic doctor who likes to take his time in explaining the diagnosis and treatment plan to his patients.
He’s well-versed in managing advanced gastroenterology problems, making him one of the island’s go-to specialists when it comes to liver transplantation. Not all gastroenterologists are equipped to handle that kind of complexity, so Dr. Loh gets a point for that in our book!
In fact, the clinic he operates in is one of the leading health centres in Singapore specialising in digestive diseases. There are several screening services here including colonoscopy, image enhanced endoscopy, emergency hemostasis, and more.
They also do foreign body removals, which are common among children. So if your child manages to swallow hazardous objects like batteries or needles, then you can bring them to gutCare Digestive.
Apart from AIA, we also like the fact that this clinic is on the panel of all corporate insurance plans and shield plans in Singapore. Besides Dr. Loh, his colleagues are also AIA-accredited, giving you more options for doctors in case Dr. Loh is unavailable.
The only thing that’s missing is the option to book a tele-consultation. Apart from this minor inconvenience, Dr. Loh and his colleagues make a great choice for patients suffering from gastrointestinal problems.
Patient, empathetic, understanding
“Dr Loh Poh Yen is patient, empathetic and understanding, taking extra care and time to walk me through the workings of the gastrointestinal tract and what could possibly be at fault. By no means was there any push or play to go for unnecessary checks, procedures or prescriptions, unlike some specialists I have seen in my ten odd years of seeking treatment. I’m glad to have chanced upon him, and to be in his care. Not many doctors these days exhibit the humility and earnestness with which he conducts his trade. You can be rest assured of quality care and sincere service with him.” —Soul Brandeis, Google Reviews
Very detailed doctor
“I was suffering from gastric for many years and that was really worse time period. Then I have consulted Dr. Loh Poh Yen and he identified my exact issue quickly. Now I’m totally well with his excellent consultancy and medications.He is very detailed doctor and not asking for any unnecessary testings.. The staff also very kind and helpful.. Highly recommended…” —Ishaka Hewage, Google Reviews
3. Dr. Jane Tan, Nexus Surgical Associates
|BEST IN||General Surgery, Colorectal Surgery|
|SERVICES||Cancer Surgery, Colonoscopy, Gastroscopy, Colorectal Surgeries, Breast Surgeries, Gastroenterology Surgeries, Vein and Vascular Surgeries|
|ADDRESS||Nearest Clinic Available Here|
|CONTACT DETAILS||Check Nearest Clinic for Contact Details|
|OPERATING HOURS||Check Nearest Clinic for Operating Hours|
If you’re looking for a medical practice equipped with complete doctors and advanced medical tools, then look no further than Nexus Surgical Associates. And to give you an idea of what they can offer, we’d like to highlight Dr. Jane Tan.
She’s a qualified general surgeon for over 20 years now, with special interests in colorectal surgeries. This means that she’s fully adept at treating colorectal cancers and functional bowel disorders including haemorrhoids.
Beyond that, you also have the option to select from her clinic’s lineup of doctors who are also experts in their own fields including vascular, breast, and pancreatic surgeries. Don’t worry, her colleagues are also accredited by AIA.
Compared to other clinics though, this one has a relatively limited number of screening services, since they operate primarily as a surgical practice. Hence, expect this clinic to refer you to other testing centres in case you need it.
Another drawback is the lack of tele-consultation services. We think that this could be an inconvenience to patients who have trouble travelling to their clinic.
Very warm, friendly, assuring
“I first saw Dr Jane Tan in June 2018. I was recommended to her by one of my healthcare practitioners. At first I wasn’t sure what to expect, but very quickly after my first visit, I felt extremely comfortable and at ease, with absolutely no regrets! Right from my very first meeting with Dr Jane Tan, I already felt assured and safe under her care. She is very warm, friendly, assuring and made me feel comfortable and confident with her best care possible. She is very careful, understanding and patient, promptly answering whatever questions or concerns I may have, pre / post treatment. She is genuinely interested in her patients and comes from her heart.
The counter staff at Nexus Surgical Associates are also superstars (especially Eva)! They are all very welcoming and friendly making each visit to the clinic a pleasant one. They are careful and detailed when explaining treatment preps and instructions, and are very prompt in sending out appointment reminders or replying to emails. Even after a year and I’m back for follow up visits, Dr Jane Tan and her staff still consistently blow me away with their exceptional level of service. It always puts a smile on my face! Professionalism, kindness, compassion, and competency is what Nexus Surgical Associates is all about.” —Roxanne Goh, Google Reviews
4. Dr. Charles Siow, Siow Neurology Headache & Pain Centre
|SERVICES||Nerve Blocks, Trigger Point Injections, Epidural Steroid Injections, Radiofrequency treatments (RF), Nucleoplasty, Electromyography (EMG), Electroencephalogram (EEG), Scans and Imaging, Nerve Conduction Studies (NCS), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS)|
|ADDRESS||Mt Alvernia Hospital, 820 Thomson Road, #08-59 Medical Centre D, Singapore 574623|

|OPERATING HOURS||Mon to Fri: 9:00 am – 5:30 pm|
Sat: 9:00 am – 1:00 pm
Apart from heading Siow Neurology Headache & Pain Centre, Dr. Charles Siow is also the president of the Singapore Headache Society. Moreover, he’s also an active member of international neurology associations such as the American Academy of Neurology.
This tells us that he’s updated with the latest advancements and technologies in neurological treatments, and these impressive credentials certainly earned him a spot here!
While he mostly specialises in treating recurring headaches and migraines, he has also dealt with numerous neurological conditions including strokes, neuro-muscular disorders, Parkinson’s disease, epilepsy, dementia, and many more.
What we really like about Dr. Siow’s clinic is how comfortable it strives to be for patients. The centre is equipped with comfortable beds, reclining chairs, free refreshments, free internet access, and more.
Compared to our previous entries, Dr. Siow is the lone specialist of this clinic. This minor drawback may mean limited slot availability and occasional waiting lists for patients though.
Just take note that some patients may experience drowsiness as a result of treatment. Hence, we highly recommend not taking your car on the day of your consultation.
Swift and accurate diagnosis
“Dr Charles Siow’s quick and correct diagnosis saved my life, and spared me from any lifelong disability after he treated me for meningitis. One of his nurses even went above and beyond to provide assistance & care for me. Dr Charles Siow has my highest recommendation for swift and accurate diagnosis, treatment and clinical care.” —Valerie Choong, Google Reviews
Has a heart for his patients
“Dr Siow solved my migraine in 1 consultation and I am very happy the migraine is gone. His clinic nurses were also very responsive and helpful to me when I experienced insomnia and they rescheduled me the nearest appointment to change my medicines. Dr Siow has very good judgment skills. Beyond that, I was extremely touched by Dr Siow when he also asked how is my daughter. He is a doctor who has a heart for his patients & I strongly recommend him!” —Wendy Tay, Google Reviews
5. Dr. Cindy Pang, SOG – Cindy Pang Clinic for Women & GynaeOncology
|BEST IN||Obstetrics and Gynaecology|
|SERVICES||Screening, Prevention and Treatment of Gynaecological Cancers, Management of Complex Gynaecological Problems, Antenatal Care|
|ADDRESS||Mount Elizabeth Novena Specialist Centre, 38 Irrawaddy Road #08-25, Singapore 329563|
|CONTACT DETAILS||+65 6694 2162 (Tel.) or +65 9662 5763 (WhatsApp) or +65 6333 5550 (24-Hour Hotline)|
|OPERATING HOURS||Mon to Thurs: 9:00 am – 5:00 pm|
Fri to Sat: 9:00 am – 1:00 pm
Here’s something for mums to be: Dr. Cindy Pang. She’s a gynaecologist who specialises in the screening, prevention, and treatment of gynaecological cancers.
On top of that, her expertise also lies in the management of complex gynaecological problems such as endometriosis, fibroids, and ovarian cysts.
Not to mention that she offers prenatal and postnatal care to expecting mothers including preconception health screenings, normal and caesarean deliveries, as well as management of high-risk pregnancies. This wide scope is exactly why she earned a spot on our list!
We’re just a bit disappointed to see her short clinic hours on Fridays and Saturdays. There are no tele-consultation options too, so you’ll have to find time in your busy schedule to see her for a consultation.
On the bright side, you can always contact her in the event of an emergency. Beyond AIA, you’ll have to verify with her staff first to know other shield plans they accept.
Took time to answer our questions
“Had my first baby in June. Dr Pang was warm and always greeted us with a smile during our antenatal visits. She took time to answer our questions and was patient with us newbie parents. I felt comfortable and safe with Dr Pang while I was in labour and am glad that we went with her as our obgyn :)” —Pamy Tan, Google Reviews
One of the best doctors in all aspects
“Dr. Pang is great, one of the best doctors we experienced in terms of all aspects, customer service, experience and skills. Our first baby was delivered by her almost five years ago and we were so grateful we have chosen her. Now we are having second baby, without a doubt, we have chosen Dr. Pang again. Thank you!” —Fei Liang, Google Reviews
6. Dr. Tan Yung Khan, Urohealth Medical Clinic
|BEST IN||Urology, Men’s Health|
|SERVICES||Diagnosis and Treatment of Prostate Problems, Kidney and Bladder Conditions, etc.|
|ADDRESS||38 Irrawaddy Road #05-26, Singapore 329563|
|CONTACT DETAILS||+65 6873 3800 | [email protected]|
|OPERATING HOURS||Mon to Fri: 9:00 am to 5:00 pm|
Sat: 8:30 am to 12:30 pm
Dr. Tan Yung Khan of Urohealth Medical Clinic is a USA fellowship-trained senior consultant urologist.
He’s an active member of the local and international medical community, which is why we weren’t surprised to see that his expertise also lies in highly specialised procedures. This includes robotic surgeries to treat prostate and bladder cancers.
Beyond his private practice at Mount E, he’s also accredited to perform surgeries in several major hospitals in Singapore including Gleneagles Hospital and Mount Alvernia Hospital. So if you have a preferred hospital should you need surgery, you can always make arrangements with him.
What we really like about this clinic is how inclusive it is to women too. His colleague, Dr. Tricia Kuo, is one of the few female urologists in Singapore, making her a good choice for women who would be more comfortable in seeing a female doctor.
Regardless of your choice, we’re confident that you’ll be in safe hands with either of these doctors.
This clinic is also a great choice for international patients, seeing that their staff members can arrange for interpreters, accommodations, among other things.
And if you can’t make it to their clinic on short notice, you can always book a tele-consult from the comfort of your home—that’s another point for them!
“Exceptional experience throughout. Thank you Dr. Tan and the awesome staff at UroHealth. Your service and care are amazing. You really put your patients first in every thought.” —Robert James Lyons, Google Reviews
Careful and meticulous
“My Dad was diagnosed with prostate cancer in Feb this year. The entire family was extremely worried and we all showed up for the various consultancies that were scheduled. Dr Tan was very professional, careful and meticulous from consultancy to surgery and post surgery. No question was too insignificant to be answered and Dr Tan addressed every question patiently and in great detail. We felt like my dad was in good hands throughout the process and is on the road to complete recovery. We are grateful to have Dr Tan and his nurses, Jasmine, Elly and Charlotte go through this with our family.” —Joyce Chen, Google Reviews
7. Dr. Liew Hui Min, SOG – HM Liew Skin And Laser Clinic
|SERVICES||Medical Dermatology, Paediatric Dermatology, Cosmetic/Laser/Skin Surgery, Genital Dermatology, Women’s Dermatology|
|ADDRESS||Gleneagles Medical Centre, 6 Napier Road, #06-01 Singapore 258499|
|CONTACT DETAILS||+65 9641 1595|
|OPERATING HOURS||Mon, Tues, Fri: 8:30 am – 5:30 pm|
Wed, Thurs, Sat: 8:30 am – 12:30 pm
Dr. Liew Hui Min is a fantastic choice if you’re looking for an all-around dermatologist who can handle medical and cosmetic skin concerns. In fact, she’s no stranger to our recommendations, seeing that she also made it to our list of the best dermatologists in Singapore.
Besides being accredited by the Ministry of Health, she’s also a licensed dermatologist in the United Kingdom. From this alone, you can rest knowing that she’s a trusted name in the field.
We love how inviting and modern her clinic is, which tells us how much they value each patient’s comfort. On top of that, her clinic’s equipped with cutting-edge technology to deal with a wide range of skin conditions in adults and children.
Speaking of the latter, paediatric dermatology is actually one of Dr. Liew’s special interests. So if you notice any growing birthmarks or rashes on your child’s skin, you can bring them to Dr. Liew for a check-up.
Unfortunately, her clinic hours are cut short on certain days of the week, which can put walk-ins at a disadvantage. Apart from AIA, their insurance partners are also limited compared to our other entries.
Despite these minor setbacks, we still think that she offers one of the best and most reliable dermatological services in Singapore.
“I first visited Dr Liew in December 2020 after reading good reviews on the website. I’m very impressed with her skill, knowledge, patience and friendliness. She’s also a very assuring doctor who listened attentively and helped correctly diagnosed my skin disorder. I’m so thankful that my face is now so much better. Highly recommended dermatologist!” —Doris Loh, Google Reviews
Very patient and reassuring
“First time visit to Dr Liew’s clinic for my daughter and we were blown away by the exceptional service provided by doctor and her team, whom we are extremely grateful to. Not only is Dr Liew very patient and reassuring, she goes out of the way to understand our concerns and helped us in ways that we’d never expected. She is extremely thoughtful and we are so appreciative of her kindness. Her nurse Grace had also been so meticulous to our needs and was such a great help to us in sorting out the various administrative work. Thank you so much Dr Liew and team!” —Sharon Lim, Google Reviews
