Doctor in the House: Doctors Making Sound Clinical Decisions

On 28 June 2017, oncologist Dr Ang Peng Tiam in Singapore was suspended for eight months for professional misconduct.

Dr George Lee discusses walking the tightrope of medical advice with oncologists Dr Mastura Md Yusof and Prof Dr Woo Yun Ling.
