Eating is an essential activity that humans do. However, when you get very passionate and overzealous in eating, it might cause digestive problems. It is vital to visit a healthcare professional for an accurate diagnosis to prevent worsening conditions once you feel something might be off. In such cases, a gastroscopy or upper gastrointestinal endoscopy is usually done to investigate the causes of specific symptoms.

If you’ve been experiencing severe stomach aches frequently and are looking for a medical centre for a check-up, we got you covered. Read on to learn of the best five endoscopy clinics in Singapore.

Kenneth Ng

Had my scope and another procedure done by Dr. Jarrod Lee. Both procedures were smoothly done and no uncomfortable feeling after that. Dr. Lee and his staff were professional and had a great experience.

Jen Koh

Dr. Lee is highly professional and patient. He listens and explains clearly. Definitely not one of those who asked you to go for a scope for the sake of doing it! The staff at the clinic are friendly and helpful. Great doctor and team!

Shawn Tan

Dr. Aaron was elaborate in his explanation during my consultations and seems very compassionate when attending to my case! The front desk staff is all really friendly and nice as well. Usually going for a check-up would be quite unnerving and daunting but this clinic has made it so that I felt relaxed when I am there. 

Teodora Han

The doctor is super kind and patient. Each session, he will explain in detail and answer all of your questions no matter how big or small. The nurses are also super nice and they make sure you’re not uncomfortable! Will visit again if ever any more problems.

Customer Reviews

Kein C. Teo

I am a 59-year-old man. I did my gastro and colonoscopy with Dr. Quan just last week due to discomforting pain in my solar plexus region. I found him to be very friendly and experienced. Very comfortable with him since he makes me feel at ease with his detailed explanation of my condition. The procedure went without a hitch. Quick & easy! Thank you, Dr. Quan!

Jingying Xi

A very professional endoscopy and gastroenterology expert explained very clearly. As a colleague in the medical industry, in Singapore, an experience of seeing a doctor made me feel and experience Dr. Quan’s extremely high professionalism.
