Saturday May 12, 2012, I did a trust and audit on Dr Jason Teo's work at Toa Payoh Vets by going to the Surgery at 9 am. Dr Teo starts work at 11 am - 12 noon and 3 pm to 5 pm by appointment only and this have been his practice for the past 5 years. It is not a practice I will endorse in view of the mushrooming of 45 veterinary clinics in Singapore with more to come.
Dr Teo has set up his own practice and there have been issues of conflicts of interests. He will be on duty on Saturdays and I asked if he really wanted to be away from his own practice which he can build up. I have not decided what to do with his hours of work but he must be available during the hours and in between, another vet like me will be present.
As the founder and licensee, I will have to make hard decisions as to what to do. The status quo cannot remain as clientele numbers are increasing due to referrals.
