Need An Earlier Doctor, Physiotherapy, Imaging Scan Appointment
It is unfortunate that many patients suffer from joint aches, pain and stiffness and medical institutions may find it hard to accommodate every patient in an ideal manner.
We frequently see patients who:
- Request an appoint with our doctor because their original doctor has difficulty seeing them for sudden flares of their pain problem
- Need more intensive physiotherapy sessions than what they are offered by other providers
- Are unable to get their doctors to agree to do an X-ray or MRI to clearly diagnose their condition, sometimes due to cost issues.
By employing patient centric processes, The Pain Relief Clinic is committed to offering patients with a timely appointment with our doctors and physiotherapists, while ensuring a personalized, detailed consultation during each visit.
Our X-rays, ultrasound and MRI scans can generally be done on the day of consultation with results reported within the same or next working day.
While we usually recommend that patients decide on a management plan best suited for their condition only after a detailed consultation with our doctor, we are happy to accept patients who already have a good understanding of what investigations and treatments they require through consultation with their previous doctors or through their own research.
In fact, a significant number of our patients come after having already seen other doctors or physiotherapists and alternative healthcare providers.
If you require an early scan, physiotherapy or doctor’s appointment,
simply call us at +65 6732 2397 or leave a message below for Dr Tan to discuss a customized non-invasive solution for you.
What To Expect When I Visit The Pain Relief Clinic
A typical visit will involve our doctor first understanding your medical history, concerns and previous experience with other pain treatments.
For patients who have consulted many people but have yet to receive a clear diagnosis, selecting an affordable imaging scan might be recommended to confirm the cause of your pain..
Some patients have already done scans with other doctors for their pain condition but are still not clearly told what they suffer from.
Dr Terence Tan is happy to offer you a second opinion and recommend how best to manage your condition.
We also see patients who already have a confirmed diagnosis from specialist pain doctors, but are "stuck” because treatment options offered are not practical or acceptable.
We can help by discussing options that you might have potentially never been told of.
A common experience is when a patient has already consulted a specialist doctor for pain management and is told to consider orthopaedic surgery which they find too aggressive.
Or they may have seen doctors for their pain and were prescribed painkillers with potential side effects which made them feel uncomfortable.
Many of our patients have also first tried complementary treatments or acupuncture with traditional Chinese pain doctors.
They look for a second opinion after finding any relief experienced from other treatments to be temporary or requiring repetitive treatments, which add up to time and cost.
Especially in such situations, we emphasize using non-invasive medical technology you likely have not been told about .
This can make a big difference to your results.
