Spire Virtual Consultation Serviceprovides a secure and safe method of providing virtual consultations using a Zoom Pro app and maintained by the Spire Healthcare Group of hospitals.

How to book a Virtual Consultation with Mr Chong?

Is a Virtual Consultation Safe?

A breast assessment by Virtual Consultation will not be as complete as a Face-to-Face Consultation as Mr Chong will be unable to carry out a breast examination. That examination will essentially be covered by the diagnostic tests i.e. mammogram and ultrasound, which is sufficient in for most breast problems. However, for more complicated cases such as breast cancer, Mr Chong will request an interval face-to-face consultation later on- this is to ensure a thorough and safe assessment.

What can I expect after the Virtual Clinic?

You will receive a detailed clinic consultation letter which explains my assessment, conclusions and recommendations. A copy of that letter will also be sent to your General Practitioner.

Can Mr Chong see international patients who want to seek a second opinion?
