Dietitian - Tan Lee Boo

Tan Lee Boo 

Senior Principal Dietitian 

I always take pleasure in what I do. There is great joy working with my patients, colleagues, doctors and other healthcare professionals. I feel a great deal of satisfaction seeing a patient under my care recovering and leaving the hospital well enough to function.

There is a general misconception that dietitians only know how to count calories and help overweight and obese patients to lose weight. Our role is more encompassing than that; we guide patients with different medical conditions in their dietary needs, especially when they are recuperating from an illness, and we need to know what diet would help them regain their health.

If you have the passion to help people improve their health through better nutrition knowledge, and you enjoy working with all types of people, then dietetics is right for you, even if you are a guy.
