On August 24th, 2008, a cute little Bichon Frisé was born. She and 2 brothers of the same litter made it out to a pet shop in Hong Kong. One day, when she was 3 months old, she saw a young couple hanging around in the shop. She made sure she put on her best behaviour when they picked both her and her brother up to see which one they would provide a home for... Instead of frantically licking her potential owners (which her brother was ecstatically doing), she did what she d...Read more

I have patients who are children and it's so hard to examine them sometimes. They absolutely HATE the ear exam (looking into their ear with the otoscope) and they'll do everything to squirm out of it. They're usually also wary about opening their mouth and saying AHHHHto a complete stranger...
As a result, I try to make things fun. To get chi...Read more
What would you do if you were pregnantOR if your wife was pregnant and you were diagnosed with CANCER??? Today, I saw my 2nd such patient case in 3 months. My 1st case was of a woman in her thirties with a rare form of bone cancer. She was diagnosed while she was pregnant with her THIRD child (The specialists kept thinking it was a cyst in her inner thigh and kept removing it- It kept coming back...turned out it was cancer...). My 2nd case is a guy. He found out he had throat cancer...Read more

I'll use natural medicines to control food cravings, monitor the body's pH level and also help the body det...Read more
It's easier to pronounce and easier to spell. But definitely not my name. A patient (who is on forums recommending others to see me for their health concerns and illnesses) has gotten my last name right, but my first name totally wrong- apparently, I'm "Dr. Arlene -----. Oh well... as long as the last name is right and they can still find me at the clinic- that's what matters, right? Read more
Summer is definitely in full blast here in Hong Kong. We've reached 30+ degrees celcius every day for a while, and it's just so hot and sticky everywhere! A lot of my patients have gone on vacation (or have gone home for the summer! ). There are lots of tourists... everywhere!
Look what Hong Kong's got at Tim...Read more
I mean, not to be vain or anything. Just to see what comes up. Have you?
Anyway, I've been creating these new ads and I just wanted to see what came up under my name under a GOOGLE search. Through the search, I found my name being mentioned on a GEOBABY (expat) website forum (in a positive way, thank God!)! I don't personally kno...Read more
