Reviews on Dermatologists in Singapore 2023: A Guide to Seeing a Dermatologist

If you are looking for dermatologist reviews, prices and recommended dermatologists in Singapore, you've come to the right place. Just so that we are on the same page, a skin specialist is a dermatologist if he holds a professional medical degree with further post-graduate training in skin diseases. We wouldn't call someone working at a spa a skin specialist though, but if you have a skin related problem and has not been well self-managed or by a general practitioner, you may wish to be referred to a skin specialist or a dermatologist.

If you are looking for an affordable dermatologist or are worried that the dermatologists in the private sector are expensive, you could always try to get a referral to see a dermatologist in the public or government sectors e.g. National Skin Centre, SGH or NUH. However, they may not allow you to make appointment directly without a referral from either a general practitioner or a medical officer from the primary care department or via a polyclinic referral. Do call directly to find out the actual procedure.

More Than A Pretty Face – Update On My Skin Condition #2
Jun 2013 

Singapore - When did blogging become so incriminatory? When did my every word weigh so much to be scrutinized and nitpicked? When did a plain narration of personal experience become associated with big words such as ‘untrue allegation’,‘untrue accusation’, ‘untrue statement’, ‘legal framework’, ‘limited liability’, ‘defamation’? They are all letters in the alphabet that make up words, words that make no sense to me...

You Know, I’m Still A Beauty Blogger
Jun 2013 

Singapore - I must be the luckiest person who has ever had a skin allergy. *throws confetti into air...
One with effects so severe my story has been published on platforms I never imagined Bun Bun Makeup Tips getting on – Huffington Post, Daily Mail, Buzzfeed, Reddit, Lian He Wan Bao, AsiaOne, Yahoo News, and thousands of big and small sites, blogs and social media channels. I didn’t – and still don’t – feel comfortable granting live interviews so even though I was ecstatic that Good Morning America, Huffington Post, RazorTV, etc asked if I could make an appearance, I… just couldn’t face the world…

Dermatologist Singapore Price - National Skin Centre Charges

The Centre has two categories of patients. Subsidised and Non-Subsidised patients.

Subsidised Patients

NSC is partly funded by the government through an annual grant. Through this grant, specialised dermatological services can be extended to patients who qualify for government subsidy.

To qualify for this subsidy at NSC, you must:
  • Be a Singaporean or a Permanent Resident of Singapore (holding a Singapore NRIC), and
  • Be referred to us by subsidised clinics of a public health institution or a polyclinic, or from an SAF medical officer/camp and
  • Be referred to the team of dermatologists on duty for that day
  • Be referred to NSC for a medical condition
Many common skin conditions can be adequately handled by the doctors in the polyclinics at nominal fees. The referral process ensures that patients receive the most appropriate level of treatment by the doctors. The subsidy is only applicable for basic medical care.

Non-Subsidised Patients

Non-Subsidised patients include all foreigners, those referred to a specific consultant, self-referrals and those who are referred to us by a private doctor or private hospital.

Important for ALL patients

If you have been discharged from our care and did not return for any follow-up appointments within the next 24 months of open date validity, your case will be considered closed at our centre. Your next visit after the above-mentioned period will be treated as a new visit and first consultation fees will apply. This is to ensure that you will receive proper assessment and treatment from our doctors in light of the lapsed time since your last visit.

Consultation Charges :

Non-Subsidised Rates:
First Consultation
Senior Consultant - $123.00 (Resident), $141.44 (Non Resident)
Consultant - $112.00 (Resident), $128.80 (Non Resident)
Assoc Consultant - $100.00 (Resident), $115 (Non Resident)

Follow-up Consultation

Consultant - $82.00 (Resident), $94.31 (Non Resident)
Assoc Consultant - $70.00 (Resident), $80.50 (Non Resident)

Subsidised Rates:​
First Consultation - $37.00 (Singapore Citizen), $55.00 (Singapore PR)
Follow-up Consultation - $35​.00 (Singapore Citizen), $52.00 (Singapore PR)

Please note that:

  • Medication, Treatment and Investigations are charged separately.
  • If you have not visited the clinic in the last 2 years, your next visit will be considered a First Visit and you will be charged at First Consultation rate.
  • If you wish to continue to be treated at the subsidised clinic, you must obtain a fresh referral from the polyclinic or subsidised clinics from a public health institution. Otherwise you will be charged at non-subsidised rates.
  • Medication, Treatment and Investigation charges are subject to change without prior notice.
  • Rates indicated are inclusive of GST

How to become a dermatologist in Singapore?

In Singapore, to qualify as a dermatologist, a doctor needs to obtain a post-graduate degree in general internal medicine or paediatrics which may take up to 5 years before acceptance into a full time dermatology training programme in a recognised dermatological institute lasting 3 years.

Wrapping It Up

As a summary and also as a checklist, I would like to provide you with two key takeaways so that you have less difficulty in finding the right dermatologist for your skin problem.

Firstly, do your online research from credible websites. Secondly, check out Aesthetician Vs. Dermatologist: Who To Go To When.

Hope this post has helped you in some way in finding the right dermatologist for you or your loved ones in Singapore.
