Dr Phoon is a MOH accredited IVF specialist and is fully qualified to perform the full spectrum of assisted reproductive techniques(ART).

Besides clinical work, Dr Phoon was heavily involved in teaching the undergraduate and postgraduate students. She was appointed as Associate Program Director for Singhealth Obstetrics & Gynaecology residency program from 2016 to 2020 and continued to be a core faculty of the residency program thereafter. She strongly believes that imparting knowledge & experience is crucial as these should be shared amongst everyone.

As a passionate clinician, she believes in developing strong relationships with her patients, providing them individualised care, and ensuring they feel heard and supported throughout their healthcare journey. She also strives to improve and empower women to make informed decisions about their reproductive well-being.
