I have visited Dr Wee to investigate on a tumor marker reading and the suspicion of malignancies. With a heavy heart we spoke with Dr Wee and he has shared his experience of such cases and comforted me that it could be other reason than malignancies. He then scheduled several thorough scans, endoscopy and colonoscopy for me at the earliest date. The tests were painless and result were non cancerous thank God. Medications were given to treat months of gastric issues that I have been having. I feel much better with the right medicines after trying other medicine from elsewhere without much relief. Thank you Dr Wee and your team of nurses!

I recommend doctor Wee for his profession and dedication to patient. Myself was diagnosed with a polyp in my doudenal which is not common. My doctor referred me to doctor Wee for more specific check as he is more specialized in EUS compare to normal endoscopy. I called doctor Wee clinic and had made an appointment to visit him. While waiting for my appointment I was anxious and keep thinking about this non-common area polyp. I called the clinic on the 10 Aug which is a holiday and change my schedule to earliest possible. (At the point of time I did not know it was doctor himself schedule the appointment). During the visit he comfort me that the polyp may not be something that is worrying and his team tried to get the earliest EUS slot for me. After the EUS doctor Wee informed me that the polyp is a cyst and they have taken some samples for biopsy. Today doctor Wee called me informing me that confirm its cysts and there is nothing too much I should worry about. The assurance definite...

About Us

Dr Eric Wee's Gastroenterology practice at Mount Elizabeth Novena (Singapore) treats individuals with digestive, bowel and liver problems. The medical team at Nobel Gastroenterology Centre is helmed by Dr Wee, a Senior Consultant and Specialist in Gastroenterology and Hepatology. 

Our Gastroenterology practice aims to deliver quality and affordable care to all patients. We offer comprehensive consultations and targeted treatments that are highly personalized, and tailored to the specific needs of the individual.

Nobel Gastroenterology Centre at Mount Elizabeth Novena is equipped with the Carbon-13 Urea Breath Test (UBT) to test for H.pylori, and a FibroScan 530 machine for the assessment of liver disease.

The Carbon-13 UBT machine detects Helicobacter Pylori, a bacteria commonly associated with gastric pain, indigestion, bloating, ulcers and stomach cancer. Unlike the Carbon-14 UBT which is radioactive, our test is free of radiation and safe for pregnant women.

The Fibroscan is a painless test, which measures the amount of liver fibrosis (liver stiffness). Vital information that is obtained from this test allows our specialist to decide on the most appropriate treatment. In addition, our machine is able to quantify the amount of liver fat using the Controlled Attenuation Parameter technology.

This assessment is useful in individuals with liver problems, and is performed during the FibroScan at no additional cost.
