Doctor's suspension upheld after High Court rejects appeal

SINGAPORE - A 12-month suspension imposed on a doctor has been upheld by the High Court after his appeal was heard and dismissed with costs, an online news source reported today.

63-year-old Dr Wong Yoke Meng faced 13 charges of professional misconduct under the Medical Registration Act, after he carried out medical treatments for conditions which some of his patients did not have.

The treatments included Colonic Irrigation, Coffee Enema and Chlorophyll Enema.

The online news source also reported that he was found guilty by the Singapore Medical Council's Disciplinary Committee of not obtaining informed consent from his patients.

Dr Wong runs an aesthetic and wellness clinic in Paragon Medical Centre. A 12-month suspension and $10,000 fine was imposed on him in April this year.
