Awesome Dr. Jonathan See at Healthway Limbang Shopping Centre...
Today was definitely one of the most unproductive days in my entire life. Okay, that's being a little too dramatic.
Today is in the top 10 most unproductive days this 2014.
I started the morning with a visit to the doctor. 10 AM onwards was spent in bed with my left foot resting on a stack of pillows. It was all thanks to a slight pain on my left ankle I felt late last night. It was a pain I was all too familiar with. It was a pain I knew was bound to get only worse.
True enough, it did.
I didn't get any proper sleep at all because of the immense discomfort and intense pain. I checked my stash of meds and I found a tiny ziplock with a few pieces of Colchicine. I took one immediately but I think I took the med a little too late.
The pain didn't go away throughout the night. In fact, it only worsened.
There was no way I was going to get to work.
After messaging my team lead, the next big problem was getting to the clinic. Since our company changed insurance providers, the nearest accredited clinic was a few bus stops away. On any normal day, I would just walk to the area where the clinic is located.
Today, I knew there was no way I would get to the clinic without bursting into tears. Also, I'm not a masochist so I was definitely not going to subject myself to pain. Haha!
Luckily, I was able to find cabs to and fro.
On the way to the clinic, I was already preparing myself for a scolding from the doctor. "You knew you should not be having alcohol? Why do you drink then?" That question has been asked a few times by Dr. Heartless, a doctor from a clinic near Tampines St. 81. Lol.
Well, I was proven wrong because as soon as I entered the consultation room, I was greeted by a smiling face. Furthermore, he apologised for the long wait. The consultation went on and I kid you not, this doctor has got to be the most compassionate doctor I've met since I moved to Singapore a few years ago. He is a doctor worth emulating by all the other GPs.
I told him this and he was very grateful. I felt that he had to hear the compliment because it is such a rarity.
His name is Dr. Jonathan See. His clinic is at the Healthway clinic in Limbang Shopping Centre.
I knew doctors like him existed. I'm glad I've found him. Lol. The other two doctors who are in the same category as Dr. See are Dr. Wong, also with Healthway, and Dr. Zaiful, who is with Temasek Medical Centre near my home.
Thank you for these doctors.
