Clinical Experience

Dr Leo spent several years as a private practice Paediatric Hematologist/Oncologist before relocating with his family to Singapore in 2011 and has since continued as a Paediatrician in Singapore. Dr Leo cares for children from newborns at delivery to teenagers. Beyond his background in Hematology/Oncology, he has an interest in asthma, behavioural issues (primarily ADHD), teen health, and modern management of routine childhood illnesses such as ear infections, bronchiolitis, and pneumonia.

He sees newborns and children in his clinic at Royal Square Novena, and the private hospital, Thomson Medical Centre.

Philosophy of Care

Dr Leo has a strong belief in practising modern, up-to-date medicine that minimises interventions and medications. During his training, he learned that most of everything he knows about Paediatrics changes, hence sticking to evidence-based medicine is his guiding principle. The basic care he provided 20 years ago when he started as a Paediatrician has changed tremendously, and he knows it will continue to.

Dr Leo is a strong believer that most children need few or no medications, and enjoys working with parents to determine what medicines will help, and what is unnecessary. Knowing when a test is needed is an important part of being a Paediatrician and a central part of his practice.

Every child is unique and developing a relationship with children, teenagers, and families is important to develop the care and treatment each individual needs. Knowing when to test, when to treat, and when a hospital stay is needed are instrumental in Dr Leo’s practice as a patient-centred paediatrician.
