Dr. RAYMOND CHOY
Co-Founder & CEO
Dr. Raymond Choy Co-founded Doc2Us with his partner Jack in December 2014 and incorporated HeyDoc International Sdn Bhd in April 2015 in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia. The idea of Doc2Us was conceived after multiple triggering text messages sent by his family members, relatives and friends regarding their medical and health related queries. As such, that got him thinking about the rest of the people who find reaching an accessing healthcare providers difficult and inconvenient. Hence, Dr. Choy and the team started this project, Doc2Us hoping more people will be able to connect to healthcare providers at anytime and from anywhere via mobile application. He believes strongly in empowering the healthcare providers and patients leveraging on the current healthcare system and connecting each and everyone in a more convenient and seamless approach. By doing so he envisions to improve health and wellbeing of all mankind, thought it seems like a big dream he continues to move together with the team realising the big dream.
Dr. Raymond Choy is a medical practitioner specialising in family medicine and aviation medicine. Dr Choy started his foray in the field of medicine at International Medical University (IMU), Malaysia in 2003 and he graduated from the University of Manchester, UK with a Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery. Upon graduation Dr. Choy received his medical training in John Radcliffe Hospitals, Oxford UK for 3 years plus and was given opportunity to pursue his career in Raffles Medical Group in Singapore in 2012. He was posted and requested to manage the 24 hour Changi International Airport cluster since then. He is also the Physician Leader in his cluster. Being at the management level for the cluster he oversees the operation of all the cluster clinics. Dr. Choy also is required to meet up regularly with the other stakeholders from the airport community such as Ministry of Health (MOH), National Environment Agency (NEA), Port Health, Changi Airport Group (CAG), CAAS, and other Ground Handling Agencies (GHA) ensuring a smoother process and operation in terms of health and safety of airport community as well as aviation safety. He is also responsible for implementing and reinforcing airport health and safety policies such as Automated External Defibrillator (AED), Infectious diseases outbreak protocol, Emergency response protocol at the airport and its radius and travel vaccination guidelines and so on as outlined by the team.
Dr Choy believes that there is a paradigm change of today’s patients’ behaviours ranging from seeking medical information, understanding their own conditions, modifying their lifestyles, tracking their own health to accessing affordable convenient care. It is inevitable that our generation is gradually adopting digital healthcare services for better personalised quality of care. We are here not to replace real world consultation nor diagnosis, but we are here to complement the healthcare ecosystem. Ideally physical medical resources should be saved for those who really need it.
