The head & neck region is a complex area that houses important organs and structures, including the ear, nose and throat. Although there are overlaps with these structures, head & neck conditions usually refer to conditions that arise from the oral cavity, pharynx, salivary glands, thyroid glands, muscle, nerves, great vessels, skin and soft tissues in the neck.
For Singaporeans & Singapore Permanent Residents
Certain surgical ENT procedures are claimable under Medisave, and the exact amount would depend on the complexity of the procedure. For other cases, please speak to our friendly clinic staff about using your insurance plan or Integrated Shield Plan.
When specific conditions become more chronic and persistent, the treatment options may be beyond your GP’s expertise. If your ear, nose or throat problems (e.g. persistent blocked nose, sinus infections, chronic tonsil infection and snoring) are troubling you and affecting your quality of life, visiting an ENT Specialist for an assessment and diagnosis is the best course of action.
During your first visit, Dr. Gan will take a thorough clinical history. Depending on the symptoms you have, Dr. Gan may perform some physical examinations and diagnostic tests. This may include a nasendoscopy, which allows him to see clearly inside the nasal passages and sinuses. After diagnosis, Dr. Gan will advise a treatment protocol that is customised to your specific condition.
You may also ask Dr. Gan any questions you may have that are related to your symptoms and condition. If you experience any discomfort, do not hesitate to bring it up. Our friendly team strives to make your visits as pleasant and comfortable as possible.
Consultation fees are charged based on length of consultation, and start from SGD$180 (within 30 minutes).
We accept the following modes of payment: Cash, NETS, PayNow, PayLah and all major Credit Cards.
If you are insured and would like to use E-Filing or A Letter of Guarantee (LOG) from the major insurers in Singapore, please contact us, our friendly clinic staff will assist you and provide more information if required.

Many people often state that they “have sinus” or “sensitive noses” when what they are really suffering from is nasal allergies. Most patients with frequent clear runny nose, blocked nose, sneezing and itchy eyes suffer from Rhinitis.
This is a chronic condition that can be well controlled with proper strategies and medication. Book a consultation with Dr. Gan and he will best be able to advise you with the best way forward.
In many patients, snoring may be the tip of the iceberg of more serious health concerns such as Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA). The management of snoring and OSA can be complex but it is treatable. It is recommended that you consult Dr. Gan for your snoring and OSA issues to find out the best treatment options for you.
