Joo summaries his approach to patient care, “A good doctor should pay great attention to detail before, during and after seeing each patient; this is important especially for fertility patients, as careful planning and delicate skills can significantly improve the success rate. I aim to ensure that my patients receive the best, personalised care & feel comfortable to ask any questions. I always give my full support through her journey of treatment & pregnancy.”
