“With people living longer, the quality of one’s physical and mental health becomes increasingly important. Having witnessed the devastating effects of chronic illnesses such as heart failure, stroke and dementia, I am keen to do my part to help reduce the impact of these conditions. Medical education for the public to promote a healthy lifestyle is an ongoing challenge which I continue to embark upon.”

Personal Introduction

Dr. Liew enjoys learning about how historical events and scientific inventions have helped shape the present and future. He has always felt a need to contribute positively to society and chose to become a cardiologist as this allowed him greater diversity to both look after patients with serious heart conditions as well as reach out to the general public who may not yet have been diagnosed with heart disease but have increased risk. Dr. Liew champions medical education for the public to promote a healthy lifestyle and increase awareness of heart diseases. He enjoys playing tennis, cycling and swimming and puts into practice what he advocates to his patients by exercising three to four times a week.
