“The best part of my job is getting to know my patients and their families on a personal level – their hopes and fears, what motivates them. Having the time to find out about someone’s personality allows for truly patient-centred care.
I enjoy watching people make different choices even when presented with the same information and I see my role as empowering people to make decisions about their own health.
It is a privilege to be able to help people, often when they are at their lowest point, and rewarding to play a part in their journey to better mental and physical health. “
Dr Neil graduated from the University of Leeds with degrees in Medicine and Sports Science, and initially undertook training in Orthopaedics, becoming a member of the Royal College of Surgeons before training in General Practice.
He worked as a Family Physician in London before relocating to Singapore with his family, where he has practiced for the past five years.
