Family Roots

The Koh Family has been practicing Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)  for the past 13 generations and Dr. Koh Kee Chang continues to bring over 350 years of accumulated wealth of knowledge and experience to his patients.

One of the features of the long Koh TCM tradition is that we only use plant-based herbs and do not use any animal products in our prescriptions. As a principle and philosphy, we do NOT “hurt a life to save one”.

Dr. Koh Chong Hern served as vice-president of the Chinese School of Traditional Medicine.

Dr Koh Kee Chang’s father – Dr. Koh Chong Hern (1899-1970) hails from Chao’an in Guangdong Province of China and arrived in Singapore in 1918 at the invitation of Seah Liang Seah to treat his son who was ill. The elder Dr Koh was a well respected physician and served as a vice-president of the Chinese School of Traditional Medicine, playing a role in the development of TCM practice in Singapore.

PIONEERING PHYSICIANS

" Dr. Koh Kee Chang pioneered the use of herbal TCM in capsule form

The traditional method of consuming the herbs was to procure a prescription from the TCM physician and buy the herbs prescribed from the medical hall. The patient would then be required to boil the herbs following a strict set of cooking instructions as to the timing and temperature of the broth. The process of preparing TCM herbs for consumption are time-consuming and laborious.

Given his rich TCM family history, Dr. Koh Kee Chang had accumulated a library of effective herbal formulas which he wished to provide to patients in a convenient form.

To simplify the process and for the convenience of his patients, Dr Koh processed the family herbal formulae into powder form and encapsulated the herbal remedies for easy consumption. This method has been proven as an effective method of treatment and has been successfully and widely adopted by his patients.
