Chief Medical Physicist – Comic and Cancer
Sunway Medical Centre’s chief medical physicist Dr Heng Siew Ping’s office suite is always opened, warmly welcoming patients to walk in for consultations.
“I love to talk to patients and through our interaction, I found out that most patients do not have a good understanding of their diagnosis and the radiation therapy treatment planning,” Dr Heng Siew Ping explains. “It is not easy to understand medical terminology, which is why I decide to draw comic to help my patients better understand their cancer treatment.”
“These days, most people prefer not to read long articles,” Dr Heng adds. “With educational comic, people can gain medical knowledge quickly.”
To ensure the accuracy of the content, I always get an oncologist to check my work before I either share my comic online or with the patients.”
