We have a comprehensive range of services that includes health screening, family medicine practice, anti-aging management, family planning and contraception, weight management, travel health, imaging and laboratory services.

Health screening is essential to help you understand your current health status by identifying pre-existing but silent health problems and risk factors for diseases. Through health screening and education, health concerns can be addressed easily. Accurate diagnosis and management can be instituted promptly to prevent disease progression and improve your health and quality of life.

Our health screening packages combine all the best elements of preventative healthcare and are specially tailored to suit the needs of men and women of all ages. We can customize assessments or help you choose the package that best fits your particular needs. Our services are suitable for both individuals and corporate organizations.

A detailed medical report will be provided after your screening. The report will be discussed with you during a private consultation with our doctor. Recommendations on lifestyle and dietary modifications and steps for health enhancement will be advised. Abnormal / urgent results will be conveyed in the shortest timeframe possible.

We use the latest diagnostic facilities and imaging services, all conveniently located at our medical centre, so you’ll be able to do everything under one roof, under the expert care of our team of dedicated doctors, nurses and clinic staff.

Importance of Health Screening

Health Screening is an important part of health promotion efforts, as recognized by our Singapore government. There is an emerging emphasis on health screening as seen in the nationwide Integrated Screening Programme that screens for chronic diseases such as hypertension, diabetes, high cholesterol, obesity, breast cancer, cervical cancer and colorectal cancer. The Singapore Healthcare system promotes healthy lifestyle as well as preventive quality health programmes. Asia Healthpartners believes in such a mission in ensuring affordable, evidence based and seamless healthcare.

Health screening is internationally recognized as a cost effective way to identify and treat health problems before they develop or worsen. A stress free 2 to 3 hour comprehensive health screening can help to prevent major complications of common diseases. Many chronic medical problems are taken for granted by the general public. A person with high blood pressure, who takes good care of his health, can live to a ripe old age of 80 years old, travelling around the world in 80 days. But a person with the same condition who does not bother about his health may live to the same age bedridden due to stroke. Likewise, a diabetic patient can enjoy a happy long journey of life with healthy lifestyle and appropriate medications guided by the family physician. Or the diabetic patient can ignore the importance of lifestyle modifications and medications and suffer the consequences of dialysis. Every year, there are more and more new patients with kidney failure requiring dialysis. The cost of dialysis does not come cheap – about $100 per day. Diabetes is the leading cause of kidney failure in Singapore. Hence healthy living, health screening for chronic diseases such as diabetes as well as partnership between the family physician and the patient will all contribute to reduce kidney failure and dialysis rates.

Health screening also enables early detection of cancer. This will greatly increase the chance of successful treatment. Cancer is the leading cause of death in Singapore, accounting for 30% of deaths in 2011. Health education by family physicians and other healthcare providers is important so that the general public will be more aware about the warning signs of cancer. Recognition of the red flags of cancer as well as usage of comprehensive health screening packages can aid in early diagnosis of cancer. Use of vaccinations such as Hepatitis B vaccine and HPV ( Cervical cancer) vaccine will prevent liver cancer and cervical cancer respectively.

How do I choose my Health Screening Package?

DR CHONG YEANG CHERN - As a family physician with more than 15 years of clinical practice, I encounter patients from different walks of life, different age groups and nationalities. It is important a have a solid understanding of the patient and his family. Good communication between the doctor and patient is also vital in ensuring the best possible healthcare for the patient. The following is a proposed guide to aid in your selection of health screening package.

Step 1

Be aware of your medical history – current medical problems, operation history, medications, drug allergies.

Step 2

Look out for warning signs / symptoms of common diseases.

Step 3

Find out more about your family’s medical history.

Step 4

Communicate with your family doctor about your personal and family history and health concerns. Bring along your medications, supplements, previous medical reports / results. Every one of us is different, with our own unique needs. For health screening to achieve maximal benefits and cost effectiveness, it would be good to seek guidance from your family doctor. Personalised health screening solution is available in Asia Healthpartners. Anti-aging health screening program can also be done concurrently.
