“The diversity of general practice, including the many areas of preventive care, is what I love about being a GP. Providing the best care demands an ability to blend the science and the art of medicine. Enabling patients to be well and to stay well gives me great satisfaction.

While I enjoy managing conditions like hypertension, high cholesterol, diabetes, and coordinating care for more complex problems, I also enjoy preventive and wellness care for all age groups. I care for women at all stages of their lives, from adolescence to post-menopause;

I perform routine gynaecological assessments, intrauterine contraceptive device procedures, and advise menopause health. Holistic care includes ensuring mental wellbeing and I am experienced in helping individuals with anxiety and depression.

As an amateur cellist and pianist, I care about the health and well-being of performing artists at risk of injury and illness. I am qualified in the field of Performing Arts Medicine and am privileged to be working with the Singapore Symphony Orchestra and the Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music. It is a skills-set that includes not only intimate knowledge of the art and science, but also a listening ear and an open mind – all very natural to me as a doctor and as a person.

At Osler Health, the ethos of kindness and compassion align with my own approach to caring for my patients.”

Dr June obtained her MBBS from the National University of Singapore in 1997 before attaining her postgraduate Masters of Medicine in Family Medicine. She has been in practice for more than 20 years with over half of that time providing care to the international community here.

She is passionate about preventive health for children, adolescents and adults through a holistic and positive lens. She is well-known for her experience in women’s health and is a member of the Australasian Menopause Society.

Dr June brings into her practice a unique expertise in caring for performing artists – musicians, dancers, vocalists, actors. She holds a Masters in Performing Arts Medicine with Distinction from University College London, becoming the only doctor formally qualified in this field in Singapore. She serves as Medical Advisor to the world-renowned Singapore Symphony Orchestra, and runs a musicians’ clinic for students of the prestigious Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music, NUS.

Dr June also serves on the Singapore board of trustees for Caring for Cambodia and has been involved with the charity for the past decade.
