ABOUT DR YOONG
Qualified, experienced and caring, Dr Ming K Yoong is a sought after gynaecologist, obstetrician and surgeon. He makes it a priority to provide thorough and clear communication to his patients and their partners.
Raised in Malaysia, Dr Yoong completed a Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery on scholarship through Sydney University.
After finishing his medical studies, Dr Yoong stayed on to further his training through Westmead Hospital and its affiliates. He later spent a year as a Pelvic Surgery Fellow in Liverpool Hospital, consolidating his training in advanced laparoscopic (keyhole) surgery.
Dr Yoong was appointed as the Senior Registrar in Obstetrics and Gynaecology for Liverpool Hospital prior to obtaining his Fellowship from the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RANZCOG) in 2008.
COMPASSION AND SUPPORT
As well as being a highly experienced clinician, Dr Yoong takes the time to offer personal care to his patients.
During the often emotional time of pregnancy or dealing with reproductive health issues, Dr Yoong ensures his patients feel well informed and have a clear understanding of the expected outcomes of all his recommendations. Patient and sympathetic, Dr Yoong is happy to answer every question and provide detailed second opinions.
Dr Yoong has engaged an experienced midwife, Suzie Oliveri to join him as of November 2021. Suzie will provide one-to-one sessions on antenatal and childbirth education. Postnatal home support visit can be arranged if the need arises. You will have the guidance and care provided by both obstetrician and midwife, in preparation for your birth. It is this holistic approach that we hope you will enjoy the experience and journey to becoming a mother.
In order to provide you with personal support during your pregnancy or treatment, Dr Yoong only takes on a select number of patients at a time. This maximises the time he can spend with you.
ADVICE AND LONG TERM CARE
For many women, falling pregnant or managing their monthly cycles requires close attention from a dedicated medical professional.
As a devoted husband and father of two, Dr Yoong has a personal understanding of the demands of childbirth and the emotional stress reproductive issues can cause.
This is why he takes the time to form relationships with his patients and understand their medical history as well as their current concerns, providing clear advice and genuine sympathy during every appointment.
Dr Yoong speaks fluent Mandarin and Cantonese and has a special interest in High-Risk Obstetrics and gynaecological laparoscopic surgeries.
