The following listing includes recommended doctors and practitioners for your thyroid care. Please note that being listed here in the Thyroid Top Doctors Directory doesn't necessarily mean a doctor is the right one for you. The doctor may be an empathetic and warm physician, but not open to working with drugs like Armour or T3 drugs. The doctor may be brilliant and innovative, but have a terrible bedside manner. Or the doctor may be quite costly and not on insurance programs. Always call the doctor's office ahead of time to find out more about the doctor's philosophy, approach, costs, and other important factors before going in for your first appointment. Please let me know if you have feedback -- positive or negative -- about doctors listed here, or would like to recommend your "top" doctor.

Thanks! -- Mary

Why is a Particular Doctor No Longer Listed?

Doctors who were previously listed here are removed for a number of reasons.
* The doctor has requested that his/her listings be removed because: he/she does not agree with this site’s philosophy or patient-orientation; the practice is too busy and can’t accept new patients; the doctor does not feel comfortable handling complicated thyroid problems; the doctor did not agree with what was said in the patient recommendations; or the doctor said “take me off the list” and offered no explanation.
* The doctor has moved, retired, or died.
* The doctor has lost his/her license, or given up his/her license, and is no longer practicing medicine.
* Patients have provided negative input about the doctor that is of sufficient concern that, in the opinion of the editor, the doctor should no longer be on the Top Thyroid Doctors List.
* Thyroid Top Doctors would face legal concerns if we published specific information about why patients had negative opinions about doctors, or if we shared a doctor’s occasional ranting ”take me off” email, or if we publicized doctors with licensing problems. So please, if you see that a doctor has been taken off the list and want to know why, talk to the doctor directly. If you write to us to ask why a doctor was taken off the list, we’re sorry, but we won’t be able to answer you or share that information.

Dr Yeoh Swee Inn, Consultant Physician and Endocrinologist, Gleneagles Medical Centre, #07-10, Singapore, 4732622 / 4732387. "After going from doctor to doctor I have finally found a doctor who listens and is up to date with the latest research. I have visited four doctors in Singapore, Dr Yeoh is the only one who tested my Ft3 and Ft4 levels. On my first visit she ordered a lot of blood tests that I had never had done before. The test results revealed anticardiolipin antibodies (hypercoagulation), below normal human growth hormone and Sjogrens syndrome. I have had the symptoms of these other diseases for six years and not one other doctor had bothered to do these tests. As far as I know T3 is not prescribed by endocrinologists in Singapore, up to now I'm not sure if Dr Yeoh has prescribed for to any of her patients. I am taking Cytomel which I get through the International Pharmacy with Dr Yeohs knowledge. My T3 levels were below normal for over a year, since I've been on T3 my blood levels are all normal. Dr Yeoh has allowed me to stay on Cytomel with close monitoring of my hormone levels. I have found Dr Yeoh to be a very understanding and thorough doctor. She listens to everything you say and doesn't make you feel like a nut who has symptoms that no one else in the world has ever had. I highly recommend Dr Yeoh."

Another recommendation:
A reader writes: "Dr Yeoh is very knowledgable in her area. She listens to her patient well, she is extremely kind, affectionate and understanding. In an era when most doctors see you as items to tap more money out, she definitely is a great doctor. I looked for to find a good thyroid doctor in Singapore and tried several, she is the best and she us very good. " (June 2006)


Dr Ian Lee, Integrated Medicine, #08-06 Camden Medical Clinic, Singapore, 6333 8618. A reader writes: "Dr Lee looks beyond conventional medicine and believes in using natural options where effective and available. With my symptoms many doctors would have been dismissive however he used data and symptom analysis to diagnose me with female hormone deficiencies, leaky gut syndrome, food allergies and hypothyroidism. All the reading I have done has confirmed his approach and on all accounts was in line with current thinking." (Added 1/06)


Dr Alex Fok, Endocrinology, 3 Mount Elizabeth #07-07, Singapore 228510, (65) 67346116, A reader writes: "Dr Fok sorted out my thyroid problems with a blend of patience, informative diagrams and advice. When I relocated he continued to take my emails, by so doing providing me reassurance that my thyroid condition was well taken care of. Top marks to this doctor." (June 2006)

A reader writes:
"I found Dr Fok through your website that recommends good thyroid doctors. Did a little research on my own by surfing to his website before making a consultation to see about my thyroid. I was impressed with Dr Fok. He is personable and knowledgeable. He has restored me to good health." (August 2007)

Another fan: "Desperate for an answer as to the reason for my poor health over the last year and a half, I consulted half a dozen doctors who offered diagnoses and treatments which fell short of the mark. On a recommendation of a friend I consulted with Dr Fok who after investigating, found me to be suffering from isolated TSH deficiency. I was told it was due to a deficiency of thyroid hormone resulting from a problem in the pituitary gland. While I don't understand the condition fully, treatment has given me back my lost energy and vigour, for which I am thankful to Dr Fok." (August 2007)
