Frequently Asked Questions

What is the process like when I use HiDoc for teleconsultations?

Teleconsultations are conducted in real-time between you and Dr Tan.

Where needed, Dr Tan may advise you to have the following medical equipment on hand to facilitate a more thorough teleconsultation:

  • Thermometer (to measure temperature)
  • Sphygmomanometer (to check blood pressure and heart rate)
  • Glucometer (to check blood glucose level)
  • Weighing scale (to measure body mass or weight)
What are the devices that I can use for teleconsultations?

You can use the web browsers on any laptop or desktop computer (Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, Safari, etc.).

You can choose to have the teleconsultation via your mobile device as well – you will need to download the HiDoc mobile app beforehand.

What do I need to prepare before starting my teleconsultation?
  • Ensure that you are in an enclosed and private area.
  • Make sure your device’s camera and microphone are working properly so Dr Tan is able to see and hear you clearly during the teleconsultation.
How long will I have to wait for my teleconsultation with Dr Tan?

Waiting times depend on the number of patients in the queue to consult Dr Tan.

Can I book offline appointments with Dr Tan through HiDoc?

Yes, there is an option to have an in-person consultation at Dr Tan’s office instead of by teleconsultation. You simply have to indicate your preferred time and day.
