Care without compromise

Dr Tan does not participate in "Insurance Doctor Panels" because he believes that the conditions imposed on doctors and patients compromise patients' best interests and the quality of care. Patients under MediShield Integrated Shield Plans with riders specifying panel doctors, can still be cared for by Dr Tan through "pre-authorization" with the insurer. Ask your insurance agent for clarification and do not be herded into insurance panels based on incomplete or inaccurate advice, giving up your right to choose your best doctor.

The practice's logo illustrates the philosophy of our practice

Modern approach

The logo of Gastroenterology & Medicine International has a silver background reflecting a modern approach, as well as the use of up to date technology to solve clinical problems.

Humanity of the practice

The figure is a stylised Chinese word “wei” which broadly means the digestive system. The figure also looks like a stylised human being which reflects the humanity of the practice.

Good clinical outcomes

The cross inside the circle is the medical cross. At the same time, cross-hairs has the imagery of aiming for good clinical outcomes for patients. The green of the figure represents life, renewal, nature, balance, harmony and, safety.

Out of the box

The horizontal lines jut out irregularly indicating that we do not confine ourselves to thinking within boundaries, but seek to find solutions “out of the box”, where necessary, to solve problems and benefit patients.

Gastrointestinal endoscopy

The upper and lower parts of the figure also look like the end view and side view, respectively, of a gastrointestinal endoscope, which is the most basic instrument of gastroenterological practice.

International and Multi Cultural

The name of the practice reflects an international mind set, both in terms of applying best practices learned from all over the world, as well as being able to communicate and relate well with our international and multi-cultural patients.
