What are you looking for?

The gynecologist

Every girl has a gynecologist. At least every girl I know has a gynecologist that they visit every once a year, or for those paranoid ones, twice a year. I’ve always dreaded gynae visits, as they are always awkward and uncomfortable.

But I don’t think anyone can top my gynae story this time around and I’ll tell you why. I called to make an appointment for a pap smear and was at the clinic by 6.30pm.

Little did I know, my gynae (a man) is a blog reader and a fan of my former Star columns. OMGWTF…!!!! Imagine the awkwardness. I didn’t know this until I was on the patient bed undergoing my check-up. Here’s an account of what happened.

“Spread your legs please.”

“By the way Miss Tiong, I’m a HUGE fan of your blog. I read it at least twice a week and why did you stop writing for The Star? “

He said those things WHILE he was performing the checkup. I almost wanted to put on my underwear and make a run for the door. Talk about embarrassment! I didn’t know what to reply and he kept going on and on and on…

The oyster mee place in Penang…really nice ah?”

“Where was your most recent discovery? Any tips”

“I’m planning to take some friends for good seafood. Can you recommend a good restaurant?”

Dude…you’re inspecting my poo-naa-nee!!! Why must you ask me such questions lah??! My cheeks were hot from embarrassment and I don’t think I can ever go back to him for my regular check-ups. The whole ordeal was worse than falling flat on the floor in my high heels, having a wardrobe malfunction or accidentally farting in a lift full of people.

I paid my RM300 and left, vowing never to go back. Anyone wants to recommend me a gynae? Preferable a lady and one who doesn’t read my blog please??

    A case of being too popular? Or is the gynae trying to get u to relax but got a complete opposite reaction instead?…hehe =)

  2. Jenson Tee

    go to Sunway Medical Center….there is a Malay lady gynae….or u can go to Sime Darby Medical Center in Subang and look for Dr. Christina Thye…..good gynae too….!!


  3. Charlene

    You can try Dr Jean Woo from Gleneagles, Ampang

  4. LOL! Understand your feeling. Indeed quite embarrassing. Guess at that moment I would feel like ‘quick get it done. and I’m gonna leave this place!’. I too will prefer a woman gynae. Good luck to you. Looking for a woman gynae is not difficult..but not your reader might be a tough one ^_^

    1. Bangsar Babe

      Yes, I think I prefer a female gynecologist now…hehe

      1. Thanks for this post. Now I can know so many ‘female’ gynae…and where to go ^_^

        1. Bangsar Babe

          Me too! Now I have more options. Thanks everyone! 😀

    The high price of being a very popular blogger it seems…! I’m sure the Gynae now knows you’re extremely embarassed, since he is an avid reader of your blog.

    I believe you’re based in KL? Then I don’t know who to refer you to. But if you’re ever in Seremban, a great Gynae is Dr Norintan in Columbia Asia Hospital Seremban.

    1. Bangsar Babe

      Yes, I’m based in KL. But thanks for the recommendation! 🙂

  6. fiseel

    hahahha that’s really kinda awkward
    That’s why I prefer female gynae… at least when she instruct me “please take off ur pants” I dun feel so guilty wakakakak

    1. Bangsar Babe

      Lol! Ya…a woman asking you to take off our pants isn’t awkward, for me at least!

  7. Dr Kim Wong in Centrepoint BU…

  8. JY

    lolx…you should be happy as you got fanz from your own doctor…Maybe he might give you discount if you recommend him nice place for makan…..

    1. Bangsar Babe

      Hahahahaha! That could be a silver lining…

  9. why not u just chat with him 😛

    1. Bangsar Babe

      Too shocked to chat! Lol

  10. Hahahhaa…. Well I am pretty sure that he doesn’t intend to offend you. I work with many surgeons and doctors, they are after all quite sociable. Something they are so get used to the procedures and didn’t realise that you might be embarrassed if he talks to you.

    A good doctor will try to find a common topic to talk to you, especially useful esp when doing stitches on patients. (example) They try to distract you with conversations so that the patient less focus on the embarrassing moment OR less focus on the pain.

    Anyhow, I am proud of you being responsible to your well being and go for regular check up with your gynecologist. 🙂

    1. Bangsar Babe

      Thanks! 🙂

  11. I understand how you felt….
    my wife went to a gynae in FMGC, Jaya 1 (Dr. Yap).
    very nice lady.

  12. Where got people who don’t read your blog lar 🙂


  13. ahmad norman

    I agree with jules’s statement.

  14. That’s the price one has to pay for being a famous blogger, Sue Lynn. Privacy will shoot straight out the door when fame comes. =(

    I guess the doctor was trying to distract you or kill the time away, but he definitely failed to notice that you blushed deep red. My personal opinion is that he should have waited before or until after the examination before he splattered those words out.

    The female gynecologists at Sime Darby Medical Center and Sunway Medical should be experienced and good at their job, but give them a try; not too sure if they are fans of your blog, though.

  15. shayne

    Dr. Tang Boon Nee of SDMC

  16. passers-A

    Dr. Jean Woo Lee See
    Gleneagles Intan Medical Centre 282 & 286
    Jalan Ampang
    Kuala Lumpur, Kuala Lumpur 50450

    1. be bee

      Dr. Jean Woo is very fully booked. Just saw her for the first time last month. Too busy and very hard to get hold of her. Also, the front desk chinese lady, Elena or so… also very hard to make appointment through her… so… I would give up seeing famous gynae, would rather look for one who is more caring and can spend more time on explanation during consultation.

  17. Kash

    The consultant should have been more professional, while doing the test to you. Common sense prevails all the time, but not in this case. I don’t think he meant any embarrassment for you, but still the topic could have waited until everything was done.

    1. primus

      It might not be him acting unprofessionally. Young lady patients tend to get rather nervous and get all tensed up during pap smear. An experienced physician will normally try to engage in relaxing conversation with his or her patient to calm their nerves.

    2. primus

      Hi Bangsar Babe, if you have not already found a female Obstetricians/Gynecologists, perhaps you could consider Dr KAMALJIT SINGH A/P HARBAN SINGH, BANGSAR WOMEN SPECIALIST CENTRE. Her clinic is located at Bangsar – 28, Jalan Telawi, 59100 Bangsar Baru, Wilayah Persekutuan (Kuala Lumpur), Contact No. 03-2282182

  18. Since he’s such a fan, you do realize he’s going to read this right? He’s probably feeling really bad now.. hahahah…But thanks for giving me a good laugh during a boring day at the office! =D

    (obviously this is Adam commenting and not Wendy..haha!)

    1. Bangsar Babe

      Yes, I know he would most probably read this. What to do…I can’t go back to that gynae anymore la. 🙁

  19. man, he should have kept quiet lar.

    1. Bangsar Babe

      I know right?!

  20. Derrick Tan

    Babe, this is the joke of the year for me!!! Couldn’t help laughing at the part where he remarked “The oyster mee place in Penang…really nice ah?”…. most likely in reference to something he saw in front of him (censored) …… ha ha … anyway, thanks for making up my day …. and probably the rest of the year!!! Cheers!!

    1. Bangsar Babe

      It’s kinda funny now…but it was horrifying then. Lol

  21. i visit my gynae in centre point one utama..Dr wong..

  22. Vivien

    LOL!! I feel more comfortable seeing a lady doctor … esp a gynae.

  23. Pinky

    Dr Gunasegaran Rajan from Damansara Specialist Hospital. Always ensure that his assistance with him all the time when he performed check up. Very comforting doctor.

  24. Kim

    Why are your choosing a male gynae in the first place? Wonder why is this profession regulated in Malaysia. Don’t mean discriminate the male gynae but how can we assured there’s no wild fantasy going into his head? You are paying to bear it all to a strager guy! Don’t your other half mind the intimacy going on?? Women out there can protect themselves by asking for a female gynae from now onwards. For the sake of women and your husband.

    1. Bangsar Babe

      I don’t get the issue you have with male gynaes. Some of them are good at what they do and if you think “intimacy” involves a speculum, that’s debatable. But each of us are entitled to their own opinion. Thanks for voicing yours out. 🙂

      1. rachel

        Well, I agree that its personal preferance on choosing the gynae we are confortable with. I used to have my gynae check with a lady doctor in SJMC (don’t want to mention the name) but was not confortable with her even if she is a female. The explanation is short and not very friendly. So, I decided to change my gynae last year to Klinik Wanita Metro in Subang Jaya…another female gynae. Felt very confortable with her. Good explanation and very gentle. Pricing were ok. Took my mom and sister here too. Overall, very happy with her service.

        1. Bangsar Babe

          Thanks for sharing!

          1. Rachel

            Hey, sorry for the late reply. Was really busy in office with hundred one assignments. Well, the doctor’s name in Klinik Wanita Metro in Subang Jaya….Dr Suganthe ( hopefully the spelling is correct). I visited her 2 weeks ago…some problem with discharge….that’s why I can remember the name.
            Anyways, the doc managed to relieve me from the stress I was going through for months. Thanks doc!

        2. yy

          Hi Rachel,
          Do you remember the doctor’s name from Metro?
          Thank you in advance =)

        3. nitha

          Hi rachel.

          1. Rachel

            Dr Suganthe

          2. HADIYANA RAMLI

            Just for your information, Dr Suganthe, is not a fully qualified gynaecologist but only has gynae experience from hospitals and clinics.
            She does not possess specialist qualifications.

  25. Krys

    He is the best and very gentle gynae I have had ever met. I got a few bad experience with female gynae before I go for Dr. Guna, 8 yrs ago.. huhuh till today I still prefer him as my gynae. but really sorry for ur embarrassment feelings, hehe
    Yes, I think he is a very comforting doctor just like what Pinky said 😉

  28. siya

    Can anyone share her experience with Chaudhary medical cenre and Dr Taposi?

  29. Oh. I just read this after reading the latest post on interview.
    You could go to Roopi Medical Centre, near Jln Pekeliling. The doctor, is Dato Dr Roopi, which has many years of experience. Of course, she’s woman.

  30. Go see DR. Ho Choon Moy from Pantai Hospital Cheras. Best female gyne in Malaysia!!!!!!

    1. Eve

      No she is not. Unless you are referring to Best Arrogant & Impatience Gyne in Malaysia.

  31. Jasmine

    Your post is really funny ! Me – I will never take a chance with a local gynecologist whom I might meet at some social function later on. So I took great pains to have my check-up done in Singapore. My family swears by Dr Lisa Wong from Mt Elizabeth Hospital on Orchard Road. Maybe famous Singaporeans come to KL to have theirs done ?? ; ) Now that is what I call bilateral trade ! LOL !

  32. kir

    Please don’t even think about trusting chaudhury medical center.. My aunt had a miscarriage last year thanks to her arrogance and negligence.. She took her own sweet time to put on all the make up and inappropriate clothing she could and came only after two hours when it was an emergency.. My aunts baby was 8 months old and was a healthy one.. But my aunt had high BP and previously had a miscarriage due to it.. But this doctor .. She made my aunt take aspirins on a daily basis.. We still don’t know why she did that
    I doubt aspirin is appropriate for pregnant women.. And she was afraid that my aunt would sue her for negligence that she had the cheek to visit my aunt after the miscarriage and told her not to try for kids anymore. The thing we notice about her is that she treats fair skinned And upper class patients better than the rest.. Well it’s best to go for any other gynecologist besides this chaudhury woman.. Better to be safe than sorry

  33. sitiwawa

    anyone can post klinik wanita metro subang jaya punya tel. no?

  34. Reema
