Dr Oo is an all-rounder General Paediatrician, also fluent in Mandarin, provides patient-centred care for families. He is friendly, approachable and dedicated to providing excellent care to ensure safety for his patients. He strives to listen and help families achieve the best outcomes for their children and is dedicated in working in a multidisciplinary team. He has helped children from family with bilingual background to get the appropriate therapy for early intervention and funding if it is eligible.
Dr Oo is particularly interested in developmental issues such as speech delay, learning difficulty and Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Speech/language delay in children is common: up to 19% had isolated language delay and 6.7% had both speech and language delay. If the problem is not picked up timely, “recent research has shown that, on average, 2 children in every class of 30 will experience DLD (Developmental Language Disorder*) severe enough to hinder academic progress.” Given the complexity of the problem, Dr Oo will conduct a thorough assessment and necessary investigations, seek information from school and link in with allied health team for therapy.
Dr Oo also has had extensive experience in general paediatric issues include: common newborn issues, including feeding difficulties, Gastro-oesophageal reflux (GOR) and tongue tie; long-term follow-up of premature newborns who required Neonatal Intensive Care; bowel and bladder problems such as chronic constipation and bed wetting (including alarm therapy); and healthy weight and lifestyle issues.
