SINGAPORE (The Straits Times/Asia News Network): A traditional Chinese medicine practitioner (TCM) has been suspended for three years and fined S$5,000 (RM15,000) after his treatments caused a diabetic patient to subsequently lose part of his left leg to amputation.

Lee Miing Chong treated the 59-year-old patient on two occasions in 2015 for poor sensation in both feet, the TCM Practitioners Board said in a statement on Wednesday (March 13).
