We are currently experiencing an increase in the usual number of bookings during this time of the year due to COVID-19 so the usual waiting time for Dr. Khoo and Dr. Wilson will be in the order of 2-7 days. There are other doctors available to see you if you wish to be seen on the day but are unable to be seen by your usual doctor.
