Sharing my horrific experience with changi hospital.
On 18 January 2023, I went to changi general hospital for a appointment with the urology department. I saw a Doctor.
I informed him that I have some difficulty in passing urine and will need about 10 to 20 seconds to pass urine.
He told me to lie down on the bed to examine me. He asked me if I am married and sexually active as it could be infection caused by sexual disease. I answered him saying I am single and not sexually active.
He than pressed the side of my penis and ask me if I feel pain. I answered no.
Suddenly I feel very pain, I shouted loudly asking him what is he doing. He say he is pulling the forehead of my penis to check. I told him pain and don’t need to check this. He ignored me and continue to pull the forehead of my penis. After that he says that in future I need to pull back the forehead of my penis to clean it when I bath.
After this incident, I still feel pain after many hours. The next day I had to go to a gp clinic to check as I don’t know what this horrible doctor did.
I emailed changi general hospital to lodge a complain and request not to see this doctor again in the future. Changi hospital call me and say is unable to confirm yet if they can allow me not to see this doctor again, because I am a subsidized patient. They will need to check on this and will get back to me.
Do note that this doctor did not ask for permission, whether is it written permission in the form of a consent form that is signed by the patient before he proceed to pull the forehead of my penis, or a verbal permission from the patient. He also did not stop even after I told him to stop as it is pain.
Do note that on December 2022, I went to bedok polyclinic to see doctor for this condition. The doctor also checked by pressing the side of my penis but he did not proceed to pull down the forehead of my penis. The doctor than refer me to changi hospital urology department for follow up.
In the beginning of January 2023, I also went to see a Urologist at Mouth Elizabeth Medical Centre. The Urologist also did not pull the forehead of my penis to check. He also checked by pressing the side of my penis, which is what the polyclinic doctor did too.
Thus, this also shows that it is not necessary to pull the forehead of the penis to check.
I am waiting for changi hospital to update me.
Refer to screenshot – the email was also cc to the management of changi hospital and also to ministers such as ong ye kung. But i think they won’t bother about it.
