MEET THE PANEL
Dr. Jessherin Sidhu
Medical Director and Founder of Insync Medical
Affectionately known to her patients as Dr. Jess, Dr. Jessherin Sidhu adopts a holistic approach to patient care. She is a firm believer that relationships, sexuality and sexual behaviour are factors that have a significant impact on overall health.
With her sex-positive and health-focused approach, Dr. Jess encourages safe and open discussions of sexual health issues that extend beyond just treating diseases. She actively incorporates the positive aspects of sexuality into her practice, such as education of self-exploration and masturbation, respect for one’s gender and sexual preference, and abolishing the shame surrounding menstruation, sex and sexuality to help decrease the stigma associated with sexual health.
Dr. Jess also keeps herself updated with the latest treatment options and technology to help her patients restore, maintain or improve optimal sexual health. She makes it a point to participate in international sexual health meets organised by the International Society of Sexual Medicine. She has skill sets in Aesthetic Gynaecology with certification from different procedural courses attended with ESAG (European Society of Aesthetic Gynaecology). Dr. Jess has recently enrolled to attend the ESSM (European Society of Sexual Medicine) School and Advanced Course in Sexual Medicine.
She is also a mother of two who divides her time between her kids, her husband, her clinic and outreach work.
