Get to know Astra Women’s Specialists Clinics in the Heartland
Welcome back to our video series about Astra Women’s Specialist clinics in the heartland areas. For the month of April, we are going to our clinic located in Toa Payoh Central, where Dr Kanika practises.
The clinic is a short 5-minute walk from Toa Payoh MRT, where ladies can wait in privacy due to the frosted glass wall panels. The 2-storey clinic houses two consultation rooms on the first floor and a minor Operating Theatre (OT) on the second floor. As such, ladies can undergo procedures such as dilations and curettage (D&C), intra-uterine insemination (IUI) and termination of pregnancies within the clinic itself. The recovery rooms are located next to and opposite the minor OT so that patients can rest in comfort with adequate monitoring before going home.
For ladies who are wondering if Medisave or insurance can be used for the minor procedures done in the clinic, the answer is yes. For Medisave, you are able to claim about $900-$1200 for minor procedures, as long as the eligibility criteria are met.
There is also a cozy and private space tucked away on the second floor where new mums can watch informative videos on breastfeeding as well.
Lastly, for ladies who would like to see a gynaecologist without taking time off work, you can choose to come before work, as the clinic is open at 7am on most days, or come after work as the clinic is open as late as 9pm on certain days as well. Lunchtime appointments are also available for ladies working nearby.
Dr Kanika is an Obstetrician and Gynaecologist. Call 6221 3837 to book an appointment with today!
