“This is a truly exceptional and rewarding field – there is such a sense of achievement when couples are finally able to conceive, and being able to follow through from tiny cells to a newborn baby.”
As Medical Director for Virtus Fertility Centre Singapore, Dr Chieng is responsible for the high level of medical standards, laboratory operations and treatment quality the centre provides. He has practised as a fertility specialist since 2001, helping many couples achieve their dreams of having a baby.
Dr Chieng specialises in male infertility, reproductive microsurgery and fertility preservation. He is highly-regarded in Singapore as a specialist who achieves results, and provides exceptional quality care and service.
He has worked at KK Hospital and Singapore General Hospital, and also spent some time in Melbourne consulting with Melbourne IVF. Because he sees so many patients suffering emotional stress and anxiety related to their worries about conceiving, he has also undertaken study in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), and has seen good results when combining acupuncture treatment with assisted reproductive treatment.Qualifications
