Professional Statement

DrMichael H. L. Yap's  practice is mainly in general neurology with a background of Internal Medicine, as many patients who  encounter severe neurological problems also have associated general medical problems, particularly when admission is necessary.

Much of the outpatient clinic work is to assess a neurological problem referred by general practitioners or other doctors. Most of these patients, after completing investigations and the diagnosis is made, will not need further neurological management or follow-up, and would be directed back to the referring doctor
