“So the Lord God formed the man from the dust of the ground, breathe life into his lungs, and man became a living being.”
The Respiratory Practice begins with Dr Jim Teo, with a simple vision in mind – to give everyone suffering from lung problems, a new breath of life.
First started at Mount Alvernia Hospital, since then it has expanded into a group practice with 5 specialists and 6 clinics that are supported by a team of Nurses, Lung function specialists and clinic executives.
As specialists in the field of lung and intensive care medicine, we understand the importance of breathing in every person’s life. With every new breath, our bodies are reinvigorated with life-giving oxygen, while carbon dioxide, the product of metabolism, is expelled – a simple process happening naturally in most of us, but crucially laboured for those with lung problems.
The Respiratory Practice strives to provide excellent, uncompromised professional respiratory general and subspecialty care for every single patient. Our practice is well equipped with state-of-the-art diagnostic and therapeutic equipments set in a comfortable, pleasant clinic environment.
