About MMG


Welcome to The Malaysian Medical Gazette.

We are an online hub for doctors, specialists and health care professionals to spread awareness and health education to members of the public in an easily accessible and reliable platform. With the advent of social media and information technology, the public has unlimited access to information at the click of a mouse. Their enthusiasm to take an active part in their own health care management coupled with the ease of information sharing is unfortunately often at times detrimental due largely to the fact that they are unable to differentiate between valid sources of information and unreliable ones. With the surge in ‘Google doctors’, many healthcare professionals are faced with uncooperative and at times confrontational patients who insist in refuting sound medicine with pseudo-facts that they read on the internet. Thus, The Malaysian Medical Gazette aims not to curb this positive information seeking behaviour but instead redirect it in the right direction by providing informative and easily understandable articles for public consumption written by real doctors and healthcare professionals.
Currently, our team consists of eight editors and over fifteen specialists from various fields (public health, orthopaedics, ENT, internal medicine, surgery, basic medical sciences, pharmacy, physiotherapy). Each doctor/healthcare professional voluntarily contributes articles on important issues to help empower the public regarding health and medicine.

    A great effort. I always believe in empowering the people. Our experience in establishing and managing the Hemodialysis Centre (Yayasan PHIM ) and Rumah Anak-Anak Yatim Permata Camar in Kuantan is, for us very satisfying. We need more leaders to outreach the people out there. MIMPA’s vision and mission is commendable. I wish you all the best.
