What kind of surgery? What is your budget? Are you under insurance? You haven’t given enough information to get an insightful answer.

Guess he's like a lot of posters who come into this forum and keep asking until somebody, who likely doesn't know squat about the subject, gives him the preconceived answer he wants that he's already formulated in his head. :wink:

Always go to Govt hospitals. The quality is consistent and oversight far more stringent.
I not lawyer/teacher/CPA.
You've been arrested? Law Society of Singapore can provide referrals.
You want an International School job? School website or http://www.ISS.edu
Your rugrat needs a School? Avoid for profit schools
You need Tax advice? Ask a CPA
You ran away without doing NS? Shame on you!

I've only ever gone to Gov't Hospitals. Never had any complaints.

I’ve only been to Mount E for the most part. My insurance covers a big part of it, so that helps, but government hospitals in Singapore are all pretty great, and much more cost-effective.
