If patient prefers to be seen by the principal doctor, his/her appointment will be rescheduled.

Our doctors may need to leave the clinic at times for unprecedented deliveries or emergencies, or, some patients may also require additional treatment during consultation.

At NUH, we strive to deliver the best quality care to patients; hence, we do not restrict the time given to see each patient during their consultation. 

We hope to seek your understanding for any unforeseen delay in your appointments.
