SG WOMAN RUSHED TO A&E BY POLYCLINIC, A&E DOCTOR SCOLDS HER FOR WASTING MANPOWER

I am writing to bring to your attention, of the misdiagnosis at Outram Polyclinic which caused me to incur unnecessary charges at SGH A&E after being attended to by an extremely apathetic doctor from Malaysia.

When I presented myself at the Polyclinic with extreme swelling on the right calf, the doctor said there could be a possible blood clot after measurements and requested that I head to A&E immediately with her referral.

When it was my turn to see the A&E doctor amongst the inefficient chaotic system, the foreign doctor said there was absolutely nothing wrong with me and that the Poly doctor had made an error of judgement. He furthermore said I should return to work if there is a manpower crunch and that SGH itself is facing one as if it was my problem after voting for this government.

He also did not bother to refer me to a Specialist for follow up even though my leg is still swollen with high blood pressure. In this situation, I hope you will look into the matter and take necessary rectification measures to resolve the billing issue. Thank you.
