Borrow this thread.

I'm looking for a good ENT specialist too, one that is particularly good with nose(olfactory) problems. I have totally lost my sense of smell.

Go to Sunway Medical Center


Look for Dr. Koay Cheng Boon. He is good.

Sime Darby Medical Center is expensive and doesn't check as thoroughly as Sunway Medical Center

I think its 1st floor.

List of EnT Doctor @ Sunway Medical Center

I go to Dr Gan at Sunway Medical. His room is right next to Dr. Koay, but strangely though, more patients opt for him. But he's one good ENT specialist.

This doctor is very lan si. I brought my mum to visit him around 2 weeks ago to do check up, after everything he said my mum should take antibiotic and blah blah blah, then i asked him if there is anything that can substitute the antibiotic, you all know what he replied? He said, you go invent la, if success then we all change, then i'll be billionaire, I was so f***ing angry. We are not doctor, sure will ask some stupid question, and I don't think that is a stupid question as well. As a professional, but I've no idea why he talked like gangster. His impression for me from 100% dropped to 10%, even though he is an expert in ENT.

DR Koay Cheng Boon, I think you should go back to school to learn how to talk. some more you're are a doctor. F***, if we all know the answer, you won't be there already.

Yes, you are right Dr. Koay is very very lan si. i brought my 3- year- old son to see him few times, the last one was few weeks back. He was unhappy when i asked him is there any alternative other than antibiotic , he replied
" if you come to see me you must trust me and just take the medicine, who say antibiotic is no good! in fact, nowadays
because of the present of antibiotic, human life become longer....... "
He don't like to discuss with you the medication prescribed, oppose to Western doctors that always encourage patient
to actively discuss with Dr.

In the middle of the course of medication, my son's condition getting worse and again went to se him.
His reply " just 2 days only, go back and see 2 more days, if not ok come to see me again" and i was charged Rm60 +15 without any medication.
For a professional with ethics, for sure he will prescribe something such as antibiotics as standby in case 2 days later need it not simply collect $ only .

i personally found Prof. Dr. Vincent Tan is good. He is soft-speaking kind of doctor that willing to discuss approach and type medication with patient. His web site : http://entheadandneckspecialist.com

You can try my ex-schoolmate, Dr Chang Chew Ming in Pantai Bangsar.
Usually has a clinic in the morning and operates afternoons.

He was also attached to Assunta on certain days, but I am not sure
of his schedule now.

Dr Tan Lye Suan, lady doctor, on the second floor of the same medical
center is also not bad.

I just visited Dr Chang this afternoon in Pantai Bangsar. Made a phone call to check and made sure he was in before I went over.
He is a good listener and very good patience.

Total bill was RM180 for consultation + meds.

is this doc ok? how old is he? experienced doc? how much did u pay for the surgery?

Hi, not sure is my personal body problem, my sinus issues came back after 2-3 months.
Currently condition just like never did the surgery before...

I did this surgery twice.
1st time Normal FESS, after 1 month sinus problem came back
went for CT scan again, found a lot scar tissues building up, so he suggested for another round of surgery to remove scar tissues
did 2nd times, after 1 month still having same issue.
then he just gave me some antibiotic everytime i see him and he wanna suggest for Balloon Sinuplasty which cost 12K+ which i rejected and never go back again.

1st - RM8K+
2nd - RM6K+

all covered by corporate insurance.

So now i still looking for other solution....

any one have any suggestion?

According to foursquare's page , the address is, 1 Puchong, Puchong, Selangor Darul Ehsan 47160

One of my client was diagnosed with mine re (ear imbalance) and causes vertigo once in a while. She consulted Dr Raymond at Lam Wah Yee Penang Hospital. She only needs to take the medication whenever she has vertigo. However Dr Raymond had left for another hospital, if not mistaken Adventist.

Since her condition is mild, her application for a medical card (after 3 months) was approved with condition. Deafness or treatment for ear imbalance will be decline as it falls under pre-existing illness.

I agree with you too. About 2 hours I was there to take my mum for a check up. While he was checking my mum, he enquired about my thyroid and i told him that i saw another Dr and nevertheless was it ok for him to check me after my mum. For that he gave me a long and serious lecture on being considerate about people. He asked "would you like if others make you wait for so long?" "Why is it that you are not considerate?" Then he repeatedly asked me nearly 4 times - "are you considerate? " and I got really irritated. I then told him, if you are considerate, you would not make all patients wait for so long! He operates from 8.45am - 1.15pm and in that 4 1/2 hours he sees 25 patients - and each person waits about 30 mins - 1 hour! My appointment was at 12.20pm, I was there by 11.45am and waited till 1.15pm before I was attended to!

Gov specialists are good you know but, I DO NOT GO to Government hospitals because I HATE WAITING, but here, I was waiting for 1 hour and pay much more! And on top of that lectured unncessarily! I will never go back to him anymore.

Do you know which ENT doctor in Penang is good and hopefully friendly? Adventist is good?

Generally most of the specialists hospitals are (pretty expensive).

Out of the many specialists hospital in Penang, Lam Wah is the most affordable as they're non-profit. The ENT Doctors are (is from their website).

Ear, Nose and Throat Surgeons :
Dr Ng Hee Hua (MBBS, FRCS, MS ENT)
Dr Gopalan Nair (AM, MD, MS ORL-HNS)

Note: This is generally covered under you medical card provided that your medical card has surpassed the 4 months waiting period for "specified illness" and that it does not fall under "pre-existing condition".

To be sure, please get in touch with your insurance agent.

He is very egoistic but I gotta say, he knows his stuff.
I used to be his patient for years cuz of my sinus and I had 2 operations done by hm. One to remove my sinus cuz it was causing me a lot of problems like sickness and stuff and the other to chisel my nose as the pathway collapsed due to getting hit at the right angle and sufficient force to break it. Best parties, he didn't even put me to sleep cuz my resisttance to anesthetic is rather high but he did put anesthetic to umb my nose before chiseling away and I felt awesome after the op was completed.

It was done the second time because some subpar ent from assunta performed a pathetic operation on my nose and it collapsed again.

I recommend both dr khor and dr koay from sunway, my current ent doctor but bear in mind he's also arrogant and does not explain much.

Dr koay costs more and best u make appointment before visiting his clinic

I had relatives who underwent surgery from dr khor and it seems fine.

Dr khor is definitely cheaper but if money is not a problem to you, go for dr koay from sunway, if u want a better in terms of attitue or humble doctor, go for dr koay from sunway's brother who is also an ENT in gleneagle. More costly of course

My cough already about 1 month but cant recover especially midnight & so go to seek for specialist.

I felt his explaination quite ok but the fee really DAMN Expensive!!

RM125 - consultation fee ( as the Nurse told )
RM130 - spray & put 1 instrument inside my nose to check
RM75 - medicine
So total RM330, i thought medical center only will charge high.
Luckily i bring enough money because there only can pay cash.

Suddenly felt @[email protected] cause unexpected so high of charges even jz a small upstair clinic...hope the medicine really can cure my problems.

Dr Koay Cheng Eng (the brother of the much-mentioned Dr Koay Cheng Boon) is very good. He is soft-spoken and has a lot of empathy. By the sounds of it after reading of others' experience with Dr Koay Cheng Boon, he's very different from his brother.

Dr Koay Cheng Eng now operates out of Sunway Medical Centre, no longer out of Gleneagles. (Dr Koay Cheng Boon seems to have run into some... "legal problems" so Dr Koay Cheng Eng has taken over his brother's clinic there.) Dr Koay Cheng Eng has solved sinus problems for so many of my family members. Be prepared to wait a while to get to your turn to see him though, he's very popular.

Why do you see an ENT specialist if you are coughing.

Shouldn't you see a chest specialist?

This doctor is very lan si. I brought my mum to visit him around 2 weeks ago to do check up, after everything he said my mum should take antibiotic and blah blah blah, then i asked him if there is anything that can substitute the antibiotic, you all know what he replied? He said, you go invent la, if success then we all change, then i'll be billionaire, I was so f***ing angry. We are not doctor, sure will ask some stupid question, and I don't think that is a stupid question as well. As a professional, but I've no idea why he talked like gangster. His impression for me from 100% dropped to 10%, even though he is an expert in ENT.

DR Koay Cheng Boon, I think you should go back to school to learn how to talk. some more you're are a doctor. F***, if we all know the answer, you won't be there already.

To those who have been using such strong and unsavoury words be mindful that you can be sued for libel and defamation. Under the new
Act which was passed in parliament recently you may find yourself (and the web administrator too) in a situation that you hoped you have not
posted such remarks in the first place.

No matter how much you hated the person, more so he is a professional, character assassination and slandering another in the open and being
sued and found guilty of the act is a painful and costly affair. As a professional he can demand a hefty compensation if you lose the case, which is very
likely the way you made the posting.

If you do are unhappy with his professional conduct, you may refer him to the Malaysian Medical Council. Do not take matters into you own hands
and make such slandering remarks in forum like this. You will regret it.

everytime i go there sure use the scope which costs a bomb for nothing cuz few years back in my blood test they detected something that indicates cancer cells in my nose and from then on QCB kept using the scope to check if there's any tumors growing.

it isn't necessary anymore çuz it costs like 80 bucks or so each time sad.gif

I was charged 60 for the scope procedure + 10 for equipment usage. And yea, it depends on the sickness. More procedures might be needed for certain sickness. Some might need different medications too, which the cost varies.

Just to share my case.

I have sinus problem since years back and getting worst day by day with included Nasal discharge backflow into throat and coughing non stop.

Went to Dr Gan Tong [email protected], tried few types of sprays(Mar, Afrin, Nasonex) and it wont helps and he decided to do FESS(8k+) on me.
Did First time, after few weeks my problem and my problem back again.
Did CT scan, found that got infection and mucal tissues building up, and he did second time of FESS(7K+) on me.
Problem came back after few weeks again, this time he gave me antibiotics and ask me consider for Balloon sinuplasty which costing 12K++.
I keep telling him my throat is not feeling well but he just ignore it and keep focus on my nasal part.
I then gave up on him and stop visiting.

My backflow and coughing continues for next few months until my GP doc told me to try Dr [email protected] Puchong.
Dr Megat did some basic checks on my nasal and my throat and shown me some of the images.
The sinus points is good condition which thanks to FESS, no infections, no blockage except one side of it kinda narrow.

He gave me tried Nasacort & Nasonex but the result is not good too and he found my coughing problem was due to acid reflux.
Dr Megat refer me to Dr Jurina(Physician) to get second opinions.

Dr Jurina really damn good and she sent me to do few test and confirmed my problem was due to acid reflux.
She gave me controloc and few other medicine which I can feel the different after that but she told me that I need to control my stress level too which it did contribute to this problem.
Last few weeks, my problem getting serious, and she put me into ward.
She get Dr Yong Chun Woon to do stomach scoping to make sure everything is ok.
She get Dr Megat to continue treat my nasal part.
She put controloc into my body for 48 hours.

after 3D2N of treatment(7K++ included 3 specialist charges), now I feel better and my coughing is fixed!
and now I know what is the real problem.
Nasal discharge backflow can't be fix easily, that will need to depends on environment, weather but I'm a lot better now.
Acid reflux, Now I know how to handle it properly.

But once I over ate too much, then I can feel the relux again...LOL

Just to share my experiences , in case anyone of you having same problem as mine.
Hope everyone stay healthy smile.gif

Are all these treatments covered by medical insurance?

With Dr Gan Tong Nee, RM8k + 7k + 12k = RM27k+

With Dr Megat, Dr Jurina, Dr Yong Chun Woon = RM7k+

Altogether RM35k+. Quite a hefty sum there.

Okay, good to know. Well, if your company doesn't have medical insurance policy for employees, or the lack of it, you can always use your own medical coverage either to cover or top up on the maximum amount that has been used up by the company's insurance(say the maximum cap of the company's medical insurance is up to RM100k, and you are claiming RM130k. Your own medical insurance will top up the RM30k).

If without medical insurance coverage, one will have no choice but to use up his/her own savings account to pay for the medical expenses. Specialist treatments are not cheap, so insurance is usually useful to cater for some of these unforeseen treatments that may be required in future.

Hi Cedriccheah,

I saw your post and your experience on the FESS and its complications after that. I went to Dr. Gan also recently, in fact, just last week, when my nose was bleeding for about a month and did not heal after seeing a GP, so I went to Dr. Gan in Sunway. Went for a follow up this week with Dr. Gan, the bleeding was healed and he asked me if i want to do a full Sinus Scan to see if my Sinus is ok...

So I agreed since I always have this sinus problems with my sensitive nose and i thought it would be good also to find out.

Scan was alright as there was no tumour or something like that, but bad news was my sinus was clogged/narrow and I had quite a big POLYPS on my right side of my sinus. So, to make the story short, Dr. Gan advised me to go for FESS (Functional endoscopic sinus surgery) to take out the Polyps and also to test and see if the polyps type, worry it is Iverted Papilloma which may cause cancer in the future.

My question is, since you have experience on the FESS and had complications, I was worried also. I do not mind going for FESS if that will solve some issues, but do you think I should check with Columbia hospital before going for the FESS? What should I check with Columbia?

Most importantly, how are you feeling right now after all the hassle with FESS (2 times) and 3 Specialist in Columbia? Do you feel totally alright now or any complications still now?

Hope to hear from you soon.

Well, if your company doesn't have medical insurance policy for employees, or the lack of it, you can always use your own medical coverage either to cover or top up on the maximum amount that has been used up by the company's insurance(say the maximum cap of the company's medical insurance is up to RM100k, and you are claiming RM130k. Your own medical insurance will top up the RM30k).

If without medical insurance coverage, one will have no choice but to use up his/her own savings account to pay for the medical expenses. Specialist treatments are not cheap, so insurance is usually useful to cater for some of these unforeseen treatments that may be required in future.

Yeah, that's why now still unable to leave this company because they medical coverage is good and with ING. But worry about AIA coverage if they changing soon..LOL
But that is good info for others smile.gif

Hi Cedriccheah,

I saw your post and your experience on the FESS and its complications after that. I went to Dr. Gan also recently, in fact, just last week, when my nose was bleeding for about a month and did not heal after seeing a GP, so I went to Dr. Gan in Sunway. Went for a follow up this week with Dr. Gan, the bleeding was healed and he asked me if i want to do a full Sinus Scan to see if my Sinus is ok...

So I agreed since I always have this sinus problems with my sensitive nose and i thought it would be good also to find out.

Scan was alright as there was no tumour or something like that, but bad news was my sinus was clogged/narrow and I had quite a big POLYPS on my right side of my sinus. So, to make the story short, Dr. Gan advised me to go for FESS (Functional endoscopic sinus surgery) to take out the Polyps and also to test and see if the polyps type, worry it is Iverted Papilloma which may cause cancer in the future.

My question is, since you have experience on the FESS and had complications, I was worried also. I do not mind going for FESS if that will solve some issues, but do you think I should check with Columbia hospital before going for the FESS? What should I check with Columbia?

Most importantly, how are you feeling right now after all the hassle with FESS (2 times) and 3 Specialist in Columbia? Do you feel totally alright now or any complications still now?

Hope to hear from you soon.

That's what I never did in the past.
For my opinion, we should always consider for 2nd opinions from another specialist.
If your medical coverage by company, I don't see any problem if you go get Dr Megat's advice and then decide on that.
The things Dr Gan told you almost same like what he told me...wonder if that is his regular advice for this problem..

Hope you recover soon smile.gif

I had POLYPS 2 months back and in between of my nose and cheek was hurting very badly and one of my eyes too till i had to close the eye to lessen the pain. it was swelling hence it blocked my nostrils too

I did not have surgery but instead I took an injection and meds to lessen the swelling. From what I've learned it is not necessary to remove it unless it occurs too frequently.

Cedriccheah,

Thanks for your opinion. Can tell more about your condition now after all the trouble?? Permanently better?

Also, Dr. Gan told me to go for the surgery because also to see if the Polyps is Inverted Papilloma type...which he said usually turns into cancerous...and said cannot do just biopsy to test without the FESS...(wondering if that is entirely true). Will go for 2nd opinion....

ExCrIpT,

Thanks for your opinion too.

Sorry, i tried to 'Quote' but didn't work on my browser...

Dr Khor and Dr koay, they're different doctors and i recommend both of them.

Dr Khor has his own clinic at jln pudu nearby tung shin and i had 2 operations done by him and it costs alot cheaper compared to dr koay, maybe due to the fact he has his own clinic instead of leasing from an expensive hospital. Read my posts earlier on my experience on failed operation from assunta.

Dr Koay is from Sunway hospital, fees are expensive but not as ridiculous as Pantai. meds costs more than Dr Khor too. hospital rates

Dr Khor contact number 0320783055

minor ones will be done in his clinic, he has an OT upstairs, otherwise it will be done in tung shin. he uses the hospital's facilities as well.

of course he accepts medical card but it also depends on the illnesses.

been to dr.koay when was 15, instead of treating my nose, i got my onsil removed, no doubt he's a friendly doctor, but think back like suddenly my parents fork out thousand just to remove something(nothing?)....now scare to go private sector...cos i know anything they wanna cut u open.

That depends, I too had my sinus removed but I had to as it was giving me alot of problems. At first Dr.Khor suggested that i should remove it and the problems will be gone and i refused as I am afraid of operation. Nearly every 2 months I had to visit the ENT due to various problems and in the end I gave in and had my sinus removed. Heck, I have never felt better and all the problems were gone for a couple of years. Dr Khor performed the operation on me and his fees were very reasonable like 2k-2.5 only.

If it were done by dr koay, it will cost alot more.

the 2k-2.5k that was paid for the operation was worth it as i saved on the amount of times i have to visit the ENT to get myself treatment and the time wasted on travelling.

I would suggest Dr Khor as the price is not expensive at all for an ENT and he is good.

Dr Khor the BEST if you ask me! My whole family being his patient for years. He just plain straight "tell you straight in your face the issue and problem (no sweet talking or sugar coat even terminal case)"
i always get lecture by him > windows close >poor room ventilation> go swimming> always on Air cond but he friendly after all.

Fr me when the sinus is inflammed, mucus will start running down my nose on stop and all kind of funny sickness appears out of no where. I remembered the last problem i had before agreeing to remove the sinus was, I woke up from sleep cuz I felt a sharp pain on my eardrum but when I sit up straight the pain is gone but when I try to lie down the pain came back again. Had to go through the entire night sitting up straight till his clinic opens and that was a torture

to be honest, go to a learning hospital like UKM, UM.

They like to explain things to patients. And the specialist there are good. theyre good doctors, and good teachers.

Hi is me ! I am back !
Let me describe my situation first.
I was wearing tracheostomy(google plz) for more than one year. This stuff actually i dun know what its main purpose. But normally, patient will take out this 3 months after operation. ( I had my head operation in JBGH)
In my case, i was failed to wear off this tracheostomy. Once I take it out, i was unable to breath rclxub.gif rclxub.gif

OK, since Dr in GH also dun know wat problem is, my dad decide to seek consultation in Pantai Melaka.
I strongly recommend this Dr (Dr. Ilangovan Lakshmanan) . He is a nice man and most important is his consultation fee is extremely cheap !!! Scope procedure + medicine only RM85!!! But very sad, he is no experience in this kind of operation. So he refer me to another Dr in Pantai KL

Well, this dr is able to do my case. He told me that only few Drs are experience in this such operation.
The estimate cost is RM50K shocking.gif shocking.gif shocking.gif
OK, no choice. I trust his saying" ei, bukan semua dr tau buat operation macam ini"
Operation will be do 1 weeks later.

1 day before I masuk Wad, his nurse called me and told me need to postpone the operation until further notice because dr's bro passed away in foreign country.

3 weeks passed, still no news fr hospital. My dad start to feel "pekcek" ady. Both of us keep calling Pantai, but the answer we get always "dr akan balik esok / dr akan masuk minggu depan " WTF
But something i need to say is pantai charged extremely high. consultation + MRI = 500+850

My dad and I feel dissapointed and very angry also. We decide to find another dr.
So i start searching info here and there, and finally i get over here.
Many LYN member introduce DrKxxx.
So I went for a try 2 weeks b4 CNY

Another nightmare began.
After he looked at my MRI, he told me that he cant do this operation too. I am prepared with this answer bcuz i still believe what the previous dr told me " ei, bukan semua dr tau buat operation macam ini" biggrin.gif biggrin.gif
The more terrible is he asked me better stay steady with the tracheostomy. Means the he asked not to do anything with that stuff. Just wear it WHOLE LIFE !! WTF, I am jz 20!!! He keep talking some evidence to make me trust him like "even in US also few dr in experience in this" , "after u take out the tracheostomy u might unable to voice" , "the operation always need to few times, each times with50~60K, finally u will bankcrupt but problem cant solved" LOL. That time, i really scared. Tears in eyes . haha
But luckily he introduced me Prof Sani of UKMSC.

I strooooooooongly recommend Prof Sani.
He is nice and humour, willing to explain a lot to patient, u will very relax while talking with him.
After doing scope procedure, I take out the MRI report to him. He told me this report is useless lah, he even didn't look 1 eye at the report ( WTF wat a waste with RM850 !!!)
He keep telling me my case is a small operation even his master student could handle it by laser. Not enuf 10 mins, he already arranged the time for operation. Finally my operation done last monday.

As mentioned above, the estimated cost is 50K right?
But i only spent RM 4200 in UKMSC !!! WTF

The room rates also cheaper thn other private. Only RM165 for single room !!! air-cond and TV ready. Shared bathroom. SO i suggest that next time should go to hospital like UKMSC/UMSC because there are equiped with modern apparatus thumbup.gif thumbup.gif


Finally finish my long long story with my poor poor english.
This jz a sharing, doesn't mean to defame /criticize any doctor/ hospital.

Thanks

Dr Khor the BEST if you ask me! My whole family being his patient for years. He just plain straight "tell you straight in your face the issue and problem (no sweet talking or sugar coat even terminal case)"
i always get lecture by him > windows close >poor room ventilation> go swimming> always on Air cond but he friendly after all.

Just wander whether anyone here knows. For lisp treatment (Pronunciation issue in 'S', 'X', 'T',etc), does ENT or dentist can help me on this?
Around how much is the fee? Any good recommendation in KL?

I have issue with pronunciation since childhood (nt sure the what is the problem) and would like to seek some consultation.
Really appreciate you guys to share some experience or thoughts here.

I hope to fix it. blush.gif

Ppl don't get hospitalized due to taking some pain killers or antibiotics and no antibiotics will cause someone to be hospitalized unless
1. You are allergic to the meds which no doctors in the world will know unless the symptoms appear.
2. You overdose urself accidentally or intentionally (pick one)


Ppl ain't stupid to believe that a doctor will risk his license just to kill you by simply prescribing dangerous drugs that harms ppl so my guess is u have a grudge against him.

If its so severe, tonsillectomy is a very common procedure and yet u didn't even choose that to get rid of the problem.

Don't try to defame someone for no apparent reason dude

Hi is me ! I am back !
Let me describe my situation first.
I was wearing tracheostomy(google plz) for more than one year. This stuff actually i dun know what its main purpose. But normally, patient will take out this 3 months after operation. ( I had my head operation in JBGH)
In my case, i was failed to wear off this tracheostomy. Once I take it out, i was unable to breath rclxub.gif  rclxub.gif

OK, since Dr in GH also dun know wat problem is, my dad decide to seek consultation in Pantai Melaka.
I strongly recommend this Dr (Dr. Ilangovan Lakshmanan) . He is a nice man and most important is his consultation fee is extremely cheap !!! Scope procedure + medicine only RM85!!! But very sad, he is no experience in this kind of operation. So he refer me to another Dr in Pantai KL

Well, this dr is able to do my case. He told me that only few Drs are experience in this such operation.
The estimate cost is RM50K  shocking.gif  shocking.gif  shocking.gif
OK, no choice. I trust his saying" ei, bukan semua dr tau buat operation macam ini"
Operation will be do 1 weeks later.

1 day before I masuk Wad, his nurse called me and told me need to postpone the operation until further notice because dr's bro passed away in foreign country.

3 weeks passed, still no news fr hospital. My dad start to feel "pekcek" ady. Both of us keep calling Pantai, but the answer we get always "dr akan balik esok / dr akan masuk minggu depan " WTF
But something i need to say is pantai charged extremely high. consultation + MRI = 500+850

My dad and I feel dissapointed and very angry also. We decide to find another dr.
So i start searching info here and there, and finally i get over here.
Many LYN member introduce DrKxxx.
So I went for a try 2 weeks b4 CNY

Another nightmare began.
After he looked at my MRI, he told me that he cant do this operation too. I am prepared with this answer bcuz i still believe what the previous dr told me " ei, bukan semua dr tau buat operation macam ini"  biggrin.gif  biggrin.gif
The more terrible is he asked me better stay steady with the tracheostomy. Means the he asked not to do anything with that stuff. Just wear it WHOLE LIFE !! WTF, I am jz 20!!! He keep talking some evidence to make me trust him like "even in US also few dr in experience in this" , "after u take out the tracheostomy u might unable to voice" , "the operation always need to few times, each times with50~60K, finally u will bankcrupt but problem cant solved" LOL. That time, i really scared. Tears in eyes . haha
But luckily he introduced me Prof Sani of UKMSC.

I strooooooooongly recommend Prof Sani.
He is nice and humour, willing to explain a lot to patient, u will very relax while talking with him.
After doing scope procedure, I take out the MRI report to him. He told me this report is useless lah, he even didn't look 1 eye at the report ( WTF wat a waste with RM850 !!!)

Brought my 17 wk pregnant wife to see mr Gan tong née at Sunway hospital. She is suffering daily headache and sinus pain.

During the first visit she was given antibiotics and some nasal spray for a week as he said that there are some sinus infection. During that week, she was fine for about 3 days and then all the symptoms came back. After a week, brought her back to mr Gan tong née again as she is still having the same issue. He then gave her Rhinocort Aqua nasal spray and ask her to use daily for two weeks. Today as I'm writing this, she is on that nasal spray for 1 week now and she is still suffering from headache and sinus pain.

Overall mr gan tong nee is a friendly and nice doctor but am not sure about his treatment. From what i read above, it seems that he likes to recommend his patients to do operation and at most time from what i read above, doesn't treat the problem.

sigh.... Heart Pain, seeing my wife still suffering everyday. I tried all sorts of other remedies, bought a sharp plasmacluster ion generator, using tea tree oil, switch off air conditioner, humidify that room and still no cure or relief. Sigh...She is now trying to use probiotics in her neti pot as well. 2 days now... Hope this remedies recommended by some sufferer online will cure her.. Might bring her to seek for second opinion if she doesn't feel better in the next few days... Maybe will try dr Khor at Jalan Pudu..

Hey people, can you believe that after I had gone for the sinusitis surgery and 7 to 8 times of hospital referral after the surgery, but until today, the problems of my sinusitis still remaining at least 95%...!!! Is this sound very ridiculous??

I was facing a very serious nose problem since so many years ago. One day, I found that I have had enough for this, because of my life and works were really been effected by this problem, so I decided to go to see the specialist, then I came to this so-called “ENT specialist” DR ONG CHUN CHIANG clinic.

This doctor said I got a very serious sinusitis and suggested me gone for the surgery. I was agreed. However, he never done the CT scans for me before the surgery. So without the CT scan, how can he clean up the secretions inside of my nasal cavity correctly??

A week after the surgery, I went back for hospital referral, some questions I asked and the answer was given by him were really make me frustrated, and he keep giving (actually I need to pay) me the medicine, even though I have not finished yet. Every time I went back to hospital referral, I have to pay RM180 to RM200 that was not cheap, ok??!!

When I found that was something with this so called “Specialist doctor”, I went to see another 2 ENT specialist doctor , after talking with them, and done the CT scans by of them, it made me more confident in believing that it was really something wrong with the 1st “specialist doctor”.!! I was really get shocked after seeing and listened from the doctor about my result of CT scans.

I brought my wife to see Dr Khor at Jalan Pudu, last Friday. It was quite expensive as well. I paid lesser at Sunway Medical Center with branded medication.

Dr Khor gave my wife some unknown drops and some cream in his own packaging. No idea what medication he gave to my pregnant wife. He did a normal scope into her nose as well and got lectured for about 15 minutes. All these comes to RM 218!

Upon registration, the receptionist asked which Chinese ancestry my wife belongs to and what is she working as. I felt weird at the beginning as I wondered why they needed such details. I don't quite like the receptionist attitude. Reminds me of some fierce teachers in those government school. Actually Dr Khor as well. He shows some kind of impatiences when you ask him more questions.

During examination, he insisted that my wife's problem is with what she is doing, which is online clothes reseller (At this time I realised why he wants to record what my wife's job is). He said that all new cloths contains allergens that is triggering her sinus problem. I'm not really sure if this is the case or not as she is not stocking a lot of the clothes at home and only once a week she will be handling the clothes and furthermore, she handles less than 10 pieces of the clothes. Hmm, if really this is the cause, she can't be walking into shopping mall already. I still feel sceptical on his claims but he is not a person that you could really voice your opinion to, so I just agree to what he say and hopefully his treatment works. He has also suggested us to open all the windows in the house for good ventilation, which he has a point and I'm doing it.

4 days now, my wife is still experiencing the same thing daily. My wife is asked to use the treatment he gave till the next appointment which is about 1.1/2 weeks more to go. Not sure whether to go back or not.

Since he said that it is due to some allergens and as it is happening to her around the same time each day, I recommended my wife to use the netti pot on a strict schedule, i.e before the time, she is expected to have headache which is once at 1pm and 6pm. This idea just came up today, hope this works. My reasoning is to clean up the allergens that is irritating her sinus before it gets too irritated till it hits her head.

On the other hand just to share, previously I noticed that I've been over humidifying my room. I read that ideally, the room humidity should about around 40-60%. Anything above 60%, allows dust mites to thrive. Previously my Sharp filter that has a build-in humidifier, has brought my room humidity level up to 80%. I quit using it as Dr Khor also said that it is bad. Now my room is about 55 plus minus.

u mean dr koay from sunway? It costs alot more, just his consultation alone is 80 bucks without using the scope. WIth the scope it costs me 120-150 without medication. with meds the total dmg is close to Rm300 already. Dr khor charged me around 60-80 for consultation and scope, with meds it costs me around 150. that's alot cheaper for me, same meds because i see them for the same problem most of the time.

Looks like ur wife has sinusitis which i have it too. What he said is correct cuz that's what dr koay from sunway told me as well. when it comes to sinusitis, it gets irritated really easily and mucus will start to flow non stop, worse case scenario headache like u mentioned and there was twice i experienced immense pain on my ear and eye which is also caused by my sinus. once i went to dr khor and it felt alot better after his treatment and his meds. the other i went to dr koay in sunway hospital. In my earlier posts i also mentioned i had my part sinus removed by him as well because it was giving me alot of problems at that time

About the doctor asking for ur wife's occupation, i was asked the same as well ever since i stepped into his clinic till today, he just wants to know the environment of ur work place.

You can't compare a mall and a house when it comes to dust/allergen etc, because a mall is really huge compared to a house therefore the amount of stuff gathered in the house is alot worse compared to a mall.

I wonder, if ur wife is sensitive to dust as well as it might irritate her sinus. if so, may i suggest you to read on the benefits of air ionizer where it produces negative ions to stick on to positive ions around us to clean the air. What i read about it is that all the dust particles will become heavier therefore it will fall to the ground instead of just floating around irritating ppl with sensitive nose.

u mean dr koay from sunway? It costs alot more, just his consultation alone is 80 bucks without using the scope. WIth the scope it costs me 120-150 without medication. with meds the total dmg is close to Rm300 already.

NO... i meant Dr Khor at Jalan Pudu is more expensive.... have not seen Dr Koay before... only Dr Gan of Sunway Medical. There are two ENT doctors in Sunway..

I am not sure what my wife is having. rclxub.gif When Dr Khor examined her, her inner nasal seems inflamed but no mucus. Seems like something is agitating her sinus. She does not have mucus flowing non stop or any congestions. Just sinus pain and headaches.

I am using the Sharp Plasmacluster as show below that comes with build in humidifier and ionizer as mentioned on my previous post. Might need to get another one for the area where she is working...

I brought my wife to see Dr Khor at Jalan Pudu, last Friday. It was quite expensive as well. I paid lesser at Sunway Medical Center with branded medication.

Dr Khor gave my wife some unknown drops and some cream in his own packaging. No idea what medication he gave to my pregnant wife. He did a normal scope into her nose as well and got lectured for about 15 minutes. All these comes to RM 218!

Upon registration, the receptionist asked which Chinese ancestry my wife belongs to and what is she working as. I felt weird at the beginning as I wondered why they needed such details. I don't quite like the receptionist attitude. Reminds me of some fierce teachers in those government school. Actually Dr Khor as well. He shows some kind of impatiences when you ask him more questions.

During examination, he insisted that my wife's problem is with what she is doing, which is online clothes reseller (At this time I realised why he wants to record what my wife's job is). He said that all new cloths contains allergens that is triggering her sinus problem. I'm not really sure if this is the case or not as she is not stocking a lot of the clothes at home and only once a week she will be handling the clothes and furthermore, she handles less than 10 pieces of the clothes. Hmm, if really this is the cause, she can't be walking into shopping mall already. I still feel sceptical on his claims but he is not a person that you could really voice your opinion to, so I just agree to what he say and hopefully his treatment works. He has also suggested us to open all the windows in the house for good ventilation, which he has a point and I'm doing it.

4 days now, my wife is still experiencing the same thing daily. My wife is asked to use the treatment he gave till the next appointment which is about  1.1/2 weeks more to go. Not sure whether to go back or not.

Since he said that it is due to some allergens and as it is happening to her around the same time each day, I recommended my wife to use the netti pot on a strict schedule, i.e before the time, she is expected to have headache which is once at 1pm and 6pm. This idea just came up today, hope this works. My reasoning is to clean up the allergens that is irritating her sinus before it gets too irritated till it hits her head.

On the other hand just to share, previously I noticed that I've been over humidifying my room. I read that ideally, the room humidity should about around 40-60%. Anything above 60%, allows dust mites to thrive. Previously my Sharp filter that has a build-in humidifier, has brought my room humidity level up to 80%. I quit using it as Dr Khor also said that it is bad. Now my room is about 55 plus minus.

The so-called "sinus" trouble that most people talk about actually falls into
three basic types :

1. Sinusitis, typically infections of the frontal and maxillary sinus cavities

2. Allergic rhinitis, which causes inflamed turbinates and nasal polyps

3. Nonallergic rhinitis, of which the main one is vasomotor rhinitis, and
also causes inflamed turbinates, usually the inferior one.


The surgery which they do to remove the inflamed turbinates is called
a turbinectomy.


http://www.talkaboutsleep.com/message-boar...pic.php?t=27714


http://www.localhealth.com/article/vasomotor-rhinitis

http://www.umm.edu/ency/article/001648.htm

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rhinitis

http://www.entusa.com/nose_photos.htm


The description you gave of your wife's symptoms - headache, sinus pain,
appears to be an infection of the maxillary or frontal sinuses.


The drops and spray that Dr Gan gave you appear to be more for allergic
or vasomotor rhinitis :

Afrin, oxymetazoline drops, a vasoconstricor

Rhinocort, budesonide spray


You can get both at any pharmacy. Afrin has been around for the past 40 years.


Budesonide is a first generation steroid. You could actually get one of the
second generation steroid sprays from any pharmacy :

Mometasone (Nasonex)
Fluticasone (Flonase)
Ciclesonide (Omnaris)


Ciclesonide, from the same company which developed budesonide, Astra,
is the best, with minimal systemic absorption.

The same steroid is used as an inhaler in asthma, Alvesco.

However, it is not advisable to use any steroid nasal spray for longer
than a month or two at a time.


You could try my schoolmate, Dr Chang Chew Ming, an ENT in Pantai Bangsar.

Hi all,

Please help comment if my experience at SIME DARBY MEDICAL CENTRE is TOO EXPENSIVE.

I went to visit Dr. NG PENG CHUA in SIME DARBY MEDICAL CENTRE this morning.

I spent a total of RM444 for a short 7 minute consultation. Is there any ways I can raise awareness on problems like this if this is too expensive?

Thank you guys.

Hi, Crys..around 8k++, almost 9k i would say. including surgery, consultation, medication,3days2night..doctor ask to stay one more night, i got bored, so ask doc to release earlier.

btw, it depends on your sinus condition. can ask doc during consultation. mine only at the left side nose..there are two types of procedure, one is using balloon, one more procedure cutting the blockage"i cant remember the procedure name".

the most expensive is balloon, you can check youtube (if you dare)or google..i use the second option bcoz balloon is not suitable for my case..i only watch youtube video after my surgery whistling.gif . scared mehh

i did exactly the same as urs without knowing it... my ENT doc never said anything and i thought only FESS.... then after few years it come back. i went for another ENT in glen and pudu, both doc said the turbinate reduction is not necessary and its prone to bleeding which i did. The worst is my previous ENT did it to my both nose which i only have problem at one side. I hate my previous ENT now for doing it without letting the me know. Some ENT really after the $$$ once they konw u are covered by insurance.

i suggest you seek second opinion before ending up at surgery table. But bleeding polyp usually does need surgery.

Just to share my case.

I have sinus problem since years back and getting worst day by day with included Nasal discharge backflow into throat and coughing non stop.

Went to Dr Gan Tong [email protected], tried few types of sprays(Mar, Afrin, Nasonex) and it wont helps and he decided to do FESS(8k+) on me.
Did First time, after few weeks my problem and my problem back again.
Did CT scan, found that got infection and mucal tissues building up, and he did second time of FESS(7K+) on me.
Problem came back after few weeks again, this time he gave me antibiotics and ask me consider for Balloon sinuplasty which costing 12K++.
I keep telling him my throat is not feeling well but he just ignore it and keep focus on my nasal part.
I then gave up on him and stop visiting.

My backflow and coughing continues for next few months until my GP doc told me to try Dr [email protected] Puchong.
Dr Megat did some basic checks on my nasal and my throat and shown me some of the images.
The sinus points is good condition which thanks to FESS, no infections, no blockage except one side of it kinda narrow.

He gave me tried Nasacort & Nasonex but the result is not good too and he found my coughing problem was due to acid reflux.
Dr Megat refer me to Dr Jurina(Physician) to get second opinions.

Dr Jurina really damn good and she sent me to do few test and confirmed my problem was due to acid reflux.
She gave me controloc and few other medicine which I can feel the different after that but she told me that I need to control my stress level too which it did contribute to this problem.
Last few weeks, my problem getting serious, and she put me into ward.
She get Dr Yong Chun Woon to do stomach scoping to make sure everything is ok.
She get Dr Megat to continue treat my nasal part.
She put controloc into my body for 48 hours.

after 3D2N of treatment(7K++ included 3 specialist charges), now I feel better and my coughing is fixed!
and now I know what is the real problem.
Nasal discharge backflow can't be fix easily, that will need to depends on environment, weather but I'm a lot better now.
Acid reflux, Now I know how to handle it properly.

But once I over ate too much, then I can feel the relux again...LOL

Just to share my experiences , in case anyone of you having same problem as mine.
Hope everyone stay healthy smile.gif

Hi Cedriccheah,
I am having the same problem as you since CNY, coughing and taking lots of cough medicine and antibiotics but still the same.
After that decided to see Dr Gan in Mac 2013 to check on my throat but he check my nose for sinus problem.
He suggest that I go for FESS surgery. I agree to go for it because I thought it will solve my problem fast.

After for a month after the FESS surgery,I have the same problem back again and he suggested a revised surgery to rectify the
problem caused by scarred tissue. He said this surgery will definitely rectify my problem.
After the 2nd surgery, I feel better then the 1st because my ear is not block and my cough is better until now.
But mucus still flow down my throat and have to blow my nose quite often to clear it. Went back to see him again and he suggested
Balloon sinuplasty surgery. After reading what you have gone through and not getting well, I decided not to go for it.
It's about a month after the 2nd surgery, I still goes back weekly to clear mucus in my nose.
I am still hoping time will cure my throat and mucus will stop flowing then I will be well again.

How are you getting on since Dec 2012 until now? Hope you can give me some advise for my next step. Tq

My backflow and coughing continues for next few months until my GP doc told me to try Dr [email protected] Puchong.
Dr Megat did some basic checks on my nasal and my throat and shown me some of the images.
The sinus points is good condition which thanks to FESS, no infections, no blockage except one side of it kinda narrow.

He gave me tried Nasacort & Nasonex but the result is not good too and he found my coughing problem was due to acid reflux.
Dr Megat refer me to Dr Jurina(Physician) to get second opinions.

Dr Jurina really damn good and she sent me to do few test and confirmed my problem was due to acid reflux.
She gave me controloc and few other medicine which I can feel the different after that but she told me that I need to control my stress level too which it did contribute to this problem.
Last few weeks, my problem getting serious, and she put me into ward.
She get Dr Yong Chun Woon to do stomach scoping to make sure everything is ok.
She get Dr Megat to continue treat my nasal part.
She put controloc into my body for 48 hours.

after 3D2N of treatment(7K++ included 3 specialist charges), now I feel better and my coughing is fixed!
and now I know what is the real problem.
Nasal discharge backflow can't be fix easily, that will need to depends on environment, weather but I'm a lot better now.
Acid reflux, Now I know how to handle it properly.

But once I over ate too much, then I can feel the relux again...LOL

Just to share my experiences , in case anyone of you having same problem as mine.
Hope everyone stay healthy smile.gif

don go to dr gan anymore. yes, he is nice and friendly but he can be very very pushy when wanna persuade people to go for FESS. he immediately told me to sign a form to book appointment without giving me time to consider.

never go back since then.

till now, i'm still looking for a good ENT. called dr khor's clinic to find out opening hours, but the nurses very fierce =_=

also went to Dr Bala in Tropicana....erm....so so only.

Dr Bala is nice to the patients, but not very patient as far as i can see. u can try. but for me, he is also so-so. i've yet to meet one friendly and not-pushy ENTs and i already visited 4 so far.

Oh thanks so much for your info. I am also going for my second opinion with Dr. Megat and third opinion with Dr. Yeo (prince medical) Hopefully I dont have to go through surgery. I dont want to go for FESS surgery if it does not cure me.

Hi LTSAudrey,
You are right, don't go for FESS surgery, if your case is not a chronic sinusitis problem. When are you going for second opinion with Dr. Megat?? I would like to see him too. I did the FESS surgery too soon without seeking for second opinion and before I join this forum. After the 1st, I have to do the 2nd surgery because it is getting bad. After the 2nd I feel much better then after the 1st surgery. But still have some mucus coming down my nose and throat.

But in their website it stated Dr Megat's clinic hours are Monday - Friday: 8am - 4pm, Saturday: 8am - 11:30am ?? You called them ?
I went to Dr Gan, he is a nice doctor he said out of 10 patient, one will be the unlucky one, need to go for the 2nd time that is called Revise surgery.
So that's me, i went for the 2nd. But still have some backflow, mucus coming down my throat and nose, not as much as after the 1st surgery.
He said the 2nd surgery will rectify the problem. Now I need to wash my nose with Mar and use Nasonex nasal spray everyday hoping that it will get well.

Mandy, but dr. gan didnt say that to me, he only say, "i wont lie to u, doesn't mean after doing this surgery your sinusitis wont come back" He say it wont 100% solve the problem but at least 95% and he also say after surgery care is very important, if we didn't clean the wound properly for sure there will be some tissue blockage. Can you tell me how do u feel after 2nd surgery? how long for u to recover after the first surgery?

Yes, I call his nurse yesterday to fix an appointment.

You called Dr Megat's nurse to fix appointment? Maybe I was too happy after the 1st surgery, feeling much better and didn't know that it will be back. I went out to public places like shopping mall, cinema and drives around. I think I shouldn't do that. Yes, after my 1st, I waited about 2 mths for it to recover fully. It did not, then he convinced me for the 2nd and I have no choice already, I can't stop just like that without full recovery. So I go for it and also claimed from my insurance.
After the 2nd, maybe i am more careful, cleaned it very often and took longer period of antibiotics which was adviced by doc. Now it is about a month after my 2nd surgery, I found it much better then the 1st, but just the backflow which make my voice like having a cold.

I stayed for 2 nights. I did the 2nd surgery because of scar tissues. I was on anesthetic for an hour too. My nose was not as painful as the 1st but I vomited out all clotted blood when awake. Terrible taste. It is the same as the 1st surgery when awake I feel like vomiting but I managed to control for the 1st.

Now sharing my experience here:

After visit to dr khor in pudu, everything is clear. He straight away treat the cause n not the symptoms. No painkillers were given hut just antibiotic, anti inflamation, n some drops n relaxing pill for stress. It's true he's weird in some way but heck who cares if he's good? Some complain his nurses are fierce, well i guess because their boss, dr khor will grill them kaw kaw if they didn do their work properly i.e taking wrong info like what u r allergic to etc.

Will doing my surgery next month. Hope once n for all i can bye bye my headache forever.

Visited both Dr Koay Cheng Eng and Dr Paul Lim in Sunway Medical Centre. Been experiencing vertigo for almost two weeks. Went to Dr Koay at first, he's nice and willing to explain the reason of my inequilibrium. Went back second time too see Dr Koay as my inequilibrium seems to be getting worst ( no Meds given ) but unfortunately couldn't see him that day, so went for Dr Paul Lim. Currently under medication to treat my vertigo. For those who want a nice and friendly doctor who is willing to talk about your condition, I recommend both doctors. Overall, had a good experience with both ENTs.

I just made an enquiry with a ENT specialist for a visit, and was quoted (almost) RM 400 for flexible endoscopy.

Wanna check with you guys, is that fee normal?

Which specialist? Actually the fee depends what did you check on. If you checked your throat, nose and ear then it will be expensive. Else if only nose then not that much maybe about RM 150. But if you go for radiology then it will be at least RM400.

Hi Cedriccheah,
I am having the same problem as you since CNY, coughing and taking lots of cough medicine and antibiotics but still the same.
After that decided to see Dr Gan in Mac 2013 to check on my throat but he check my nose for sinus problem.
He suggest that I go for FESS surgery. I agree to go for it because I thought it will solve my problem fast.

After for a month after the FESS surgery,I have the same problem back again and he suggested a revised surgery to rectify the
problem caused by scarred tissue. He said this surgery will definitely rectify my problem.
After the 2nd surgery, I feel better then the 1st because my ear is not block and my cough is better until now.
But mucus still flow down my throat and have to blow my nose quite often to clear it. Went back to see him again and he suggested
Balloon sinuplasty surgery. After reading what you have gone through and not getting well, I decided not to go for it.
It's about a month after the 2nd surgery, I still goes back weekly to clear mucus in my nose.
I am still hoping time will cure my throat and mucus will stop flowing then I will be well again.

How are you getting on since Dec 2012 until now? Hope you can give me some advise for my next step. Tq

Hi Cedriccheah, I have been waiting for your reply since a month ago. At last, happy to hear from you but not happy to hear that you still have the cough.
Thanks for sharing about your experiences. Me too similar as your case. I went to Dr Megat too and he gave me controloc tablets which i am still taking it.
Thanks for introducing Dr Megat, he is a very nice, patient, detail and friendly doctor. Actually I don't eat much and do not have acid reflux, but he said i have a very slight of it which I am not aware. He said my nasal looks good because of the FESS surgery, but I have something below my throat was caused by acid reflux. Now when I took controloc tablets most of the time i don't cough but my voice still like having a cold. I think I need to see him next week.
