For male patients, you might want to consider Dr. Ronny Tan if you have concerns with your urological or sexual health. His subspecialties lie in andrology, meaning that he deals with diseases and conditions specific to the male reproductive system.

From vasectomy to testosterone therapy, Dr. Tan’s clinic is fully-equipped, ready to perform any procedure you might need.

What’s worth noting about Dr. Tan is that he’s the first Singaporean to train in urological prosthetic surgery in the United States. This is a breakthrough for patients who suffer from stress urinary incontinence or erectile dysfunction.

So if you’re thinking about knowing more about this procedure, Dr. Tan is your best option for this. Alternatively, he also offers LiESWT—a non-invasive method used to address erectile dysfunction and chronic pelvic pain.

From these alone, you can tell that Dr. Tan is quite updated on the latest technologies in urology to give you many options for treatment. This is exactly why we had to mention him here, so go ahead and give his clinic a call if you’re looking for an excellent urologist in Singapore.

Pros

  • Wide variety of procedures available
  • Specialises in men’s health
  • Specialises in urological prosthetic surgery

There’s often a misconception that urologists only treat males—and seeing that it’s a male-dominated subspecialty of medicine, we wouldn’t blame you if you thought so.

Dr. Shirley Bang stood out in our search for urologists, considering that she’s one of the very few female urologists in Singapore. This is a huge plus for female patients who would be more comfortable in consulting with a female urologist.

She has a few subspecialties under her belt including urinary incontinence, recurrent UTI, and kidney stones. She even performs functional and reconstructive surgery of the urinary system, both for males and females.

What’s more is that she’s also fluent in English, Cantonese, Malay, and Mandarin. This allows her to see a diverse range of clients, which is as diverse as her range of the urological services she offers.

You have the option to see her in any of her 2 convenient clinic locations: one at Mount E or at Parkway East. That’s another point in our book!

Pros

  • Ideal for females and males
  • Wide variety of procedures available
  • Fluent in English, Cantonese, Malay, and Mandarin
  • 2 clinic locations

Cons

  • Short weekend hours
  • No tele-consultation available

Sat: 9:00 am to 1:00 pm

At S H Ho Urology and Laparoscopy Centre, you’ll find a wide range of urology services for men, women, and even children. But despite these, their resident urologist Dr. Ho Siew Hong actually specialises in men’s health.

Dr. Ho offers a variety of minimally-invasive procedures to help you solve any problem involving your reproductive health, including erectile dysfunction and low sperm count. 

In fact, he also specialises in laparoscopic surgery. The most important thing to know about this surgery is that it involves small incisions only to make recovery time faster.

Another thing worth mentioning about Dr. Ho is that he’s seen and treated many expats and tourists from Southeast Asia and Europe, actually.

He can communicate fluently in English, Chinese (Mandarin, Cantonese, Hokkien), Malay, and Bahasa, allowing him to cater to a diverse set of clients. The clinic also provides interpreters, should you need it.

Despite shorter hours on weekends, we like the fact that he has a 24-hour emergency phone number, just in case you need to see a urologist ASAP.

Pros

  • Wide variety of procedures available
  • Fluent in English, Chinese languages, Malay, and Bahasa
  • Ideal for expats and international patients
  • Caters to emergencies

Cons

  • Short weekend hours
  • No tele-consultation available

While under his care, Dr Ho is professional and caring and he took time to explain difficult terms in an easy to understand way ,delivering all the information clearly and patiently.

Another female urologist worth mentioning is Dr. Tricia Kuo of Urohealth Medical Clinic. She’s another excellent choice for female patients who suffer from urinary incontinence or overactive bladders.

Aside from the fact that she’s also one of the very few female urologists in Singapore, she actually specialises in adolescent urology, too.

That also makes her one of the very few paediatric urologists in Singapore. So if your child’s experiencing symptoms of any urinary or genital problem, then Dr. Kuo is the doctor to call.

What also makes this clinic great is that tele-consultations are available for those who prefer to stay at home. And for international patients, you can also request for an interpreter if needed, making them a good choice for tourists as well.

And while you may see her personally at any of Urohealth Medical Clinic’s 2 locations, take note that you’ll have to contact the clinic first to know her hours.

But in case she isn’t available, you may also choose to see Dr. Tan Yung Khan—the clinic’s medical director who’s also a USA fellowship-trained senior consultant urologist. Either way, rest assured that you’ll be in safe hands at this clinic.

Pros

  • Wide variety of procedures available
  • Ideal for females and adolescents
  • Tele-consultations available
  • Interpreters available upon request
  • 2 clinic locations

Cons

  • Short weekend hours
  • Doctor’s clinic hours unavailable

Here’s another fantastic choice for female patients: Dr. Pearllyn Quek. What makes her special is that she’s one of the first 2 female specialists to be accredited in urology in Singapore—you can rest in knowing that she knows the ins and outs of urology.

While she specialises in general urology, suffice to say that she’s also the go-to doctor for female patients who have bladder and pelvic floor concerns.

And speaking of the latter, Dr. Quek’s clinic is designed to specifically address postpartum pelvic floor issues. For instance, they have a private room where patients can learn a variety of pelvic floor exercises, courtesy of their female staff.

Apart from day procedures, Dr. Quek also performs all sorts of surgeries in a couple of major hospitals and medical centres all over the island including Mount E, Gleneagles, and more.

The best part is that patients have the option to choose any of these medical centres that’s most convenient to them. These are just some of the reasons why Dr. Quek earned a spot on our list, and you’ll have to see her personally to know why other patients love her, too.

Pros

  • Wide variety of procedures available
  • Ideal for females and males
  • Specialises in pelvic floor concerns
  • Has a network of hospitals for surgeries

Cons

  • Short weekend hours
  • No tele-consultation available

Customer Reviews

Here’s a glimpse of what former patients said about Dr. Quek:

“Definitely one of the most professional, ethical and patient private practitioners I’ve experienced for my chronic uti issues. For a condition that a highly raved urologist previously deemed as “no other solution for me”, Dr Quek managed to reassess my condition and offered me different perspectives. She patiently analysed my 2 full pages of medical journal on our first consultation and treated me accordingly based on her initial prognosis since then. I feel very much at ease under her care. Really thankful to have found her and that truly gave me hope towards the road to recovery. Wish we have met earlier to save me from the agony.” —Steph, Google Reviews

“A friend recommended me to visit Dr. Quek when I was experiencing bladder problems. She is very professional and knows how to deal with male patients; I felt very comfortable to discuss my personal health issues with her. She was also able to identify and fix the problem quick! Strongly recommend.” —Nicholas M, Google Reviews

You can also add Dr. Lee Fang Jann to your list of urologists that you can count on whenever you experience bladder problems. While female patients are welcome in his clinic, Dr. Lee specialises in men’s health including male infertility and prostate issues.

He’s also known in the medical community for another subspecialty: advanced laparoscopic and robotic surgeries. Because these conditions involve smaller incisions, patients can expect less blood loss and pain compared to regular surgeries.

Rest assured that he’s an expert in these procedures in Singapore, seeing that he’s also a fellow of the International College of Robotic Surgeon.

Compared to other entries on our list, Dr. Lee has longer clinic hours, which gives working professionals a bit of allowance to come in for a consultation after work. Alternatively, his clinic also opens relatively early, just in case you prefer to come early in the morning.

Pros

  • Wide range of procedures available
  • Specialises in men’s health
  • Long clinic hours
  • Fluent in English, Mandarin, Hokkien

Cons

  • No tele-consultation available
  • May not be suitable for female patients

Sat: 9:00 am to 1:00 pm

Tan Urology is a clinic that’s headed by a father and son duo: Dr. Lincoln Tan and Dr. Robert Tan. Both urologists have over 45 years of combined experience, treating male patients who have prostate, urinary, and kidney problems.

You’ll often catch Dr. Lincoln (the son) handling the majority of new and repeat patients alike who enter this clinic. And from what we’ve seen, Dr. Lincoln has earned quite a reputation for being detailed, professional, and empathetic—exactly the things we’d all want in a doctor!

Otherwise, you can also opt to have yourself checked by Dr. Robert (the father), who’s actually one of the founding members of the Singapore Urological Association. He doesn’t often come to the clinic though, so you’d have to schedule an appointment beforehand in order to see him.

What truly makes this clinic special is their convenient tele-consultation service, which follows the same fee structure as in-clinic consultations. If you require any medication, you can also have it delivered to your doorstep the next day.

The only drawback with this service is that delivery charges are a bit steep at $19.26 regardless of your location in Singapore.

Still, we highly recommend them for the ease and convenience of their services. Make sure to check them out for men’s health-related services!

Pros

  • Wide range of procedures available
  • Specialises in men’s health
  • Tele-consultation available
  • Medication delivery services available
  • 2 doctors available

Cons

  • Not suitable for female patients
  • Relatively expensive delivery fees

Customer Reviews

Here are some reviews by their former patients:

“Dr. Tan is definitely one of the best doctors I’ve interacted with. He’s extremely knowledgeable and patient. He’s always there to help you, even if it’s 1 AM on a weekend. Last but not the least, his assistants at the reception are distinctly pleasant and helpful as well.” —Rockstar Joker, Google Reviews

“Dr. Lincoln is hands down one of the best doctors and specialists I’ve encountered. He is patient, meticulous, knowledgeable, and humble; everything you could possibly want in a doctor. I completely trust him and his assessments. Daisy and Mairan were also lovely and very accommodating and caring- thank you for making me feel welcome and at home during my every visit. I would recommend Tan Urology in a heartbeat!” —Russell Chong, Google Reviews

“I have been very impressed with Dr. Lincoln Tan’s treatment. After wasting almost a year with another “high profile” urologist, I switched and started seeing Dr. Tan. His scientific expertise, empathetic attitude and detailed & structured approach have helped me immensely both psychologically but most importantly medically to get over my condition after only 2.5 months of seeing him (and after 1.5 year in total that I was troubled by the same condition). Thank you Dr. Tan!” —Nimos Dimopoulos, Google Reviews

Dr. Ong Chin Hu of Ace Urology Clinic & Surgery is another urologist that you ought to consider. Like most top urologists in Singapore, he’s also had extensive training in the United Kingdom, gaining international and local fellowships in the process.

Now, what makes Dr. Ong different from other urologists is that he specialises in uro-oncology. This means that he’s an expert in diagnosing and treating male and female urinary tract cancers.

That said, you can also expect his clinic to accommodate prostate, kidney, bladder, and testicular cancer screening tests. What’s more is that Dr. Ong speaks fluent English, Bahasa, Mandarin, and Hokkien, allowing him to accommodate a variety of patients.

Whether you need a specialist yourself or know someone who needs one, rest assured that you’re in good hands with Dr. Ong.

Some comments about Dr. Ong include the following:

“Dr Ong is a very kind and compassionate doctor! My father is a stroke patient and travelled a long way to consult him regarding urinal tract infection. He was very attentive towards him and my family, patiently explaining his condition to us, and even helping him to the bed when he was too tired on his wheelchair. Strongly recommend!” —Cindy Lim, Google Reviews

“Dr Ong is truly a dedicated & compassionate urologist.He has seen my 86 yr father for his condition on a few occasions.Dr Ong takes the trouble to explain his condition in simple terms & gives the best treatment plan suitable for my dad.

If you suspect that you might have a urological issue, then perhaps Dr. Colin Teo can help you with that. Like some urologists on our list, Dr. Teo also specialises in laparoscopic and robotic surgery, for those who prefer these new technologies over the old ones.

Even though his expertise lies in men’s health, he actually welcomes Singaporeans of all ages who need help with certain kidney and bladder conditions. This means that you can also have your child, especially boys, checked at this clinic, if needed.

What we like about Dr. Teo’s practise is that he accepts a wide array of healthcare plans such as Fullerton Health, Alliance Healthcare, among many others. This is to make sure that urological healthcare is accessible to everyone regardless of financial status.

But if you aren’t covered by any of the plans they accept, it doesn’t mean that the clinic will turn you away. Just contact them and they’ll work on a solution with you.

Pros

  • Wide variety of procedures available
  • Specialises in men’s health
  • Accepts patients of all ages
  • Accepts a wide range of healthcare plans

Cons

  • Tele-consultation unavailable
  • May not be suitable for female patients

Customer Reviews

Take a look at a detailed review about Dr. Teo’s services:

“Back in July 2019, Dr Colin Teo came highly recommended as I was concerned with the increasing PSA level in my blood, although my GP had considered it still within normal range and just asked me to monitor. Dr Teo did not dismiss my concern, in fact, he took steps, over the course of the rest of the year, to closely monitor the PSA level, perform checks to determine if my prostate was enlarged and also urine flow tests which showed that it was not optimal. That led to a prostate biopsy and revealed that it was 2nd stage prostate cancer in January 2020.

Dr Teo delivered the diagnosis and although it was devastating news, at the same time, he was calm and reassuring when he explained the diagnosis and discussed the different courses of treatment and their pros and cons with me. He has so much passion and confidence in his expertise that he immediately made me feel comforted and positive that I would be in good hands.

The surgery was originally scheduled for March but because of COVID-19 measures, Dr Teo put my health on priority and arranged for it to be performed before the lockdown. This was to me, beyond the call of duty, and showed a lot of humanity and genuine care for my well-being—physically, emotionally and mentally. If I had to wait till the lockdown was over, the worry and the weight of an uncertainty would have defeated me.

Under his skilful hands, the keyhole robotic surgery was successfully performed in February 2020 and I was under impeccable care. He visited me daily to give me updates and ensured that I was fit and well before I was discharged.

My experience with Dr Teo in every aspect of this journey has been really beyond my expectations. Dr Teo and his team are super professionals, they take their time to explain things in a human and understanding way, interact always with genuine care, yet remaining utmost professional. I’m still doing my routine follow-ups and so far, results have been good and I’m cancer-free. Thank you Dr Teo, you’re truly a lifesaver. I definitely recommend Dr Teo and his team, highly.” —Louis Jeanne, Facebook

If your budget’s a bit tight, you might want to consider turning to Singapore General Hospital (SGH) to help you with your urinary tract problems. With 14 doctors under their belt, you’ll find plenty of leeway to choose the best one that fits your needs.

Out of all specialists, there are only 2 female urologists that are based in SGH, which may be a bit limiting for patients who prefer female doctors.

So if this is something important to you, we highly recommend making an appointment at least a week in advance—that is, if your case isn’t that urgent.

But in any case, SGH has high standards in their vetting process when it comes to hiring doctors. Rest assured that you’re in great hands, no matter who you choose.

And because SGH is a public hospital, eligible patients will also find subsidised rates in consultations and procedures. The only caveat is that you must satisfy a couple of requirements, which you can read more about here.

Pros

  • Wide range of procedures available
  • Large team of doctors
  • Subsidised rates available
  • Emergency care available

Cons

  • Limited number of female doctors available
  • Tele-consultation unavailable
