Here are some kind words from Dr Derek Yong's former patients and their families, fellow doctors and students.
"Thank you isn't enough for the care and attention our mother Mdm Kung A.L had over the last few months (especially Dr Derek & Team, Mr Alvin Chua - Principal Medical Social Worker). This has been a very difficult time for our family, but it could have been much worse without your dedication and expertise. My family and I are truly grateful for the level of care you were able to administer to our mother even though she had finally left us."
