DB Medical

ADDRESS290 Orchard Rd, #14-10 Paragon Medical Centre, Singapore 238859

OPERATING HOURSMonday to Friday: 9:00 AM – 6:00 PM
Saturday: 9:00 AM – 1:00 PM

DB Medical is headed by Dr. Khoo Yee Xuen, a dermatologist who specialises in internal health and sexual health issues of both genders. Her impressive resume is pretty much what earned her a spot in our list.

Dr. Xuen earned her bachelor’s and postgraduate degree from the University of Southampton and University of Cardiff, respectively. We believe that graduating from prominent universities overseas gives her an edge over our other picks.

There’s more to her than her credentials, though. Dr. Xuen’s clinic is known for its one-stop, personalised medical services that range from general health screenings down to allergy testing and STD testing.

DB Medical’s allergy testing covers RAST blood test and skin prick test, both of which are effective in identifying an allergy.  Dr. Xuen recommends the former to patients with severe skin conditions, and the latter for those adults and childrens of all ages.

As a small clinic, however, DB Medical is unable to do extensive allergy tests as most established clinics do. But if your goal of getting an allergy test is purely confirmatory, then you wouldn’t have any problem with this clinic.

Pros

  • Impressive credentials
  • Open to patients of all ages
  • Easy booking of appointment

Cons

  • Limited medical services

“Professionally run clinic. Contacted DB Medical for health screening. Receptionist lady was very nice in explaining the various packages and available options (I requested for additional ultrasound) and was able to schedule me a week later for the screening. The screening was done on time with minimal wait and fuss. Dr Khoo was patient and gracious in explaining the terminology of the screening results on my second visit.” -M Yong

“First time visiting DB medical. I received their responses for appointment booking on the same day. Dr. Khoo is very friendly and professional, she explained my medical report to me from A to Z which I really appreciate. Their assistant, Penny, was also very nice and helpful when I asked to change my appointment. The entire experience was good! Highly recommend it! Will visit again!” -Emelone Ling

OPERATING HOURSMonday to Friday: 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM
Saturday: 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM

If you are looking for a full-service ENT clinic, then we suggest taking a look at ENT Doctor Singapore. It’s led by Dr. Dennis Chua, an ENT specialist with a subspecialty in facial plastics and reconstructive surgery.

He completed his medical undergraduate degree at the National University of Singapore and earned subsequent otorhinolaryngology training in local clinics and hospitals, so there’s no denying that he’s an experienced specialist.

Dr. Chua’s subspecialties may seem disconnected from allergy tests, but as an ENT doctor, he’s the doctor who should come to your mind in case of an allergy attack. Aside from allergies, he can deal with asthma, voice problems, and swallowing problems.

Another reason we added him to our list is his holistic approach to medical conditions. Every patient can expect that he will go beyond traditional medical procedures and prescriptions if your medical condition calls for it.

Pros

  • Full-range ENT clinic
  • Easy-to-find location
  • Open on Saturdays
  • Courteous receptionist

Cons

  • Walk-in patients may have to wait, so booking an appointment is recommended

Customer Reviews

Take a look at what previous patients had to say about Dr. Chua:

“Been coming at Doc Dennis’ clinic for almost 2 years now, not only for myself but for my husband and children too…Dr. Dennis Chua is one of the best ENT we have gone to here in Singapore because aside from the very detailed check-ups we have with him, the conversation as patient-doctor is very comfortable too!! Not to mention the clinic staff are very welcoming and always serve with a smile on their faces.”

-Edith Serdan

“Dr. Chua and his staff are absolutely great! Dr. Chua ably addresses my concerns and conveys the information in simplified terms when necessary.  I even recommended him to my wife; she is now a patient as well. His staff is second to none. Those ladies are true medical professionals…always friendly.  Highly recommended!!!”

Customer Reviews

Dr. Tan and Partners has an average rating of 4.8 out of 5 on Google Reviews. Most patients who commented mentioned how professional all of its doctors and nurses are.

Here’s a comment from Neil Armstrong:

“Quite possibly the warmest, most helpful general practitioner I have ever had the pleasure to be treated by. “Dr Jess” talks to you as a real person, follows up without fail and is just generally wonderful. Cannot recommend highly enough. The signage can imply only womens’ health and/or STIs are treated. Don’t let this put you off. A superb GP.”

Here’s another one from a patient named Cyrus Foo:

“Excellent customer service, had a very warm welcome from the frontline worker Malliga who was more than happy to help me with my queries. Would also like to thank Dr Shariff for providing me with one of the most professional, enjoyable and interactive experiences through my care at DTAP Holland Village.”

If you’re after the best allergy tests in Singapore for adults, then look no further than Singapore General Hospital. It’s no surprise it earned a spot here considering that it’s one of the most prominent hospitals on the island.

Singapore General Hospital has always been consistent with the quality of its medical treatments and making them more accessible to every person on the island. It’s government-owned too, so no worries about excessive medical bills.

It houses an allergy centre that stands as a one-stop diagnostic and therapy centre for adult allergies. The types of allergy tests patients can get here include skin prick tests, food allergy tests, drug allergy tests, patch tests, and immunoglobulin E tests.

For more accurate results, SGH’s allergy centre collaborates closely with the different departments like immunology, rheumatology, respiratory medicine, and dermatology. This makes it easier to detect if you have serious underlying conditions.

If you’re confirmed to have an allergy too, there’s no need to transfer to another clinic because it comes with free consultations for skin allergies, allergic rhinitis, and even asthma.

Pros

  • Multi-disciplinary approach
  • Operates for 24 hours
  • Safe allergy tests
  • Free consultations

Cons

  • Booking an appointment is quite hard

OPERATING HOURSMonday to Friday: 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM
Saturday: 9:00 AM – 1:00 PM

Dr. Annabelle Leong is another ENT specialist who managed to earn a spot on our list. We highly recommend dropping by her clinic if you want an allergy test to determine the allergens that trigger your sensitive nose.

When treating sensitive noses, Dr. Leong follows a series of steps that starts with allergy testing and ends with desensitisation therapy. She identifies the triggers through a skin prick test or a blood test, both of which can identify several allergens.

Not only can Dr. Leong determine the causes of your allergies, but she can put an end to them as well. Every patient has the option to opt for sublingual immunotherapy, which is a treatment used to calm down the immune system when exposed to allergens.

However, be prepared to take medications for up to three years because that’s how long it takes to achieve long-term protection against allergens that trigger your nose.

That aside, another thing we like about Dr. Leong’s is that she looks after patients of all ages, from children down to elderlies. She’d be the perfect doctor if your son or daughter inherited your allergies.

All in all, visiting Dr. Leong would do for anyone who’s been struggling with nasal allergies their whole life. You’ll finally have the upper hand against your allergies when you choose her as your doctor.

Pros

  • For patients of all ages
  • Open on Saturdays
  • Two clinics in Singapore
  • Specialises in nasal allergies

Cons

  • Booking an appointment ahead of time is recommended

Customer Reviews

Here’s what Dr. Annabelle’s patients had to say about her:

“It gives me great pleasure to acknowledge the outstanding quality of experience I derived from being a patient of Dr. Annabelle Leong ENT specialist.  Dr. Annabelle is not only an excellent medical practitioner with skills and professionalism of the highest quality, she made me feel as if I was here only as a patient and inspired me to totally trust her.  I am confident anyone searching for the best all-around ENT specialist in Singapore need not look any further than Dr. Annabelle Leong.  Research completed!” -Eli Lenyoun

“Dr. Annabelle Leong is a godsend to me. I visited her clinic due to an emergency. She runs the check as appropriate and follows up on what is going on with me at that time. The removal process was practically painless, and the recovery was a breeze. Besides, she had pleasant and competent office staff. Overall, I was very pleased with my experience at The ENT Clinic, and I’d recommend Dr. Annabelle Leong to anyone who requires any ENT medical attention.!” -Ferlynna Zainuddin

Innoquest Diagnostics isn’t technically a medical clinic, but we still added it here because it offers one of the best diagnostics services in Singapore, including allergy tests.

Apart from being a diagnostics laboratory, it’s worth checking out because it’s equipped with cutting-edge and groundbreaking medical technologies — sometimes including ones that even the most advanced clinics in Singapore can’t get.

In fact, Innoquest Diagnostics is serving hundreds of clinics, hospitals, and medical centres all over the island, further proving that its diagnostic tests are topnotch.

And if other clinics take a couple of days before releasing your allergy test results, you can receive them within the day with Innoquest Diagnostics. It has the capacity to perform tests on at least 10,000 patients per day, thanks to its automated laboratory system.

There’s also an online platform where patients can view the results of their tests, so there’s no need to visit the lab to know the results.

Pros

  • Results are posted online
  • Fast release of results
  • Equipped with cutting-edge technology

Cons

Certified Medical Diagnostics created a partnership with ImuPro to provide food allergy testing for diagnostics and nutritional purposes. We highly recommend its tests to those who are planning on improving their lifestyle and diet.

Food allergies manifest in various ways, including bloating, headaches, gastrointestinal complaints, and even excess weight. ImuPro’s multiple allergy tests can determine which part of your daily diet is causing these, without needing to consult with a specialist.

ImuPro’s food allergy tests have the capacity to analyse 22 to 270 food allergens, which is something that most medical clinics in Singapore can’t do. To make this even better, you don’t need a fortune to get your hands on them.

Aside from their competitive price, the thing we love most about ImuPro’s allergy tests is that they come with a brief summary report, personal nutritional guide, and recipe book.

The nutritional guide and recipe book are even tailored to your personal needs to help you achieve your diet goals, so there’s no need to consult with a nutritionist anymore!

Pros

  • Can test up to 270 food allergens
  • Competitively priced
  • With personalised nutritional guide and recipe book

“Was looking for a place to do my health checkup and a friend recommended this clinic near her work place. Took up their health screening package. The whole experience redefined my perspective of how health screenings were done. They were patient and took the time to explain the results to me. The ambiance was clean and comfortable which really helps a lot. I fully appreciate the Dr for the time taken to explain the results to me and advise on some change to lifestyle…eg eating the proper food etc.” -Stephen Yeo
