    Dr Ch’ng sees both private and public patients in her rooms. She does not prioritise patients based on their insurance status. The urgency of your appointment will be based on the type of problem you have.

  • Patients with private health insurance typically have shorter waiting periods for surgery due to the availability of additional operating lists in private hospitals.
    Other benefits of having private health insurance are that Dr Ch’ng will personally perform your procedure, and you are more likely to have a single room while in hospital.

    It is possible to have your surgery done privately without having health insurance. You can discuss this with us at your appointment.

  • Dr Ch’ng also operates on public patients at Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, the Chris O’Brien Lifehouse.
