PATIENTS & VISITORS MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS EVENTS & HEALTH INFORMATION ABOUT US
 

Betty Fong

   

 

As an orthoptist, I am often the first point of contact for patients, particularly young children, who come to the eye clinic at NUH. I diagnose and manage conditions such as 'lazy eyes' and 'squints'. Many of our patients have multiple health issues, and are often anxious and worried. No matter how busy it gets, I always remind myself to put our patients first. They deserve our time, our patience and the best possible care.

Work is rarely mundane, interactions with patients from different cultural backgrounds have broadened my horizons and improved my communication skills. 

Teamwork and respect among colleagues makes NUH a great place to work in.
