Local Accreditations At Private Hospitals

Before choosing any eye specialist in Singapore, do ensure that they possess the proper credentials and accreditations to practice and perform surgery.

Dr Tay is accredited to practice and perform surgery at all Parkway Pantai (Mount Elizabeth Orchard, Mount Elizabeth Novena, Parkway East and Gleneagles) private hospitals and Farrer Park Hospital.

Today, patient-centric doctors are growing in demand as patients prefer an eye doctor who prioritises them and recommends suitable treatments and solutions based on their unique eye conditions.
