Apex Heart Clinic's mission is to provide effective, customised, and evidence-based treatment to patients with heart disease. Conditions treated include Heart Attack, Coronary Artery Disease (Blocked Blood Vessels), Weak Heart (Heart Failure), Irregular Heartbeat (Arrhythmia), and Heart Infection (Endocarditis or Myocarditis).
Many people may have symptoms which could be due to a heart problem, such as difficulty in breathing, breathlessness, chest pain or angina, irregular heart rate, palpitations, swollen legs (oedema), and tiredness. The clinic performs tests and other investigations to diagnose the cause of these symptoms, and then provide the correct treatment.
The full array of modern techniques and technologies such as electrocardiography, comprehensive resting echocardiography, stress echocardiography, carotid-intimal media thickness assessment, cardiac catheterisation & coronary angiography, right heart study, and myocardial biopsy are available.
Based on the results of tests done, medication, coronary angioplasty (“stent” or “ring” implantation), or heart surgery may be recommended. Patients have the opportunity to discuss all their options fully with the Cardiologist before commencing treatment.
Of course, many people are healthy and wish to remain healthy, and thus can attend the clinic for a comprehensive heart and full body examination, which also includes clinical assessment, blood tests, and personal consultation with a highly-trained and experienced Senior Consultant Cardiologist.
Leading the clinic is Senior Consultant Cardiologist Dr. Daniel Yeo, who has more than 15 years experience in Cardiology, particularly heart failure therapies and echo cardiology. He received intensive training in Australia, the UK, USA, and Singapore. In the USA, he completed an Advanced Fellowship in Heart Failure and Cardiac Transplantation at the renowned Cleveland Clinic and passed the National Board of Echocardiography board exam, joining the ranks of one of the few in Singapore who have USA NBE certification. He has also been involved as a senior investigator in many recent International Studies which have been published in leading medical journals, and have led to new therapies becoming available to benefit patients. When added to his passion to understand the patient’s concerns and to care for the patient as a unique individual, his qualifications and achievements place him in good stead to provide exceptional cardiovascular care that exceeds international standards.
Apex Heart Clinic is located at #04-37 (Annex Block) Gleneagles Hospital on 6A Napier Road. It is only eight minutes away from Singapore Botanic Gardens and is accessible by car or train via Orchard Station.
