A Filipina doctor in UAE has been giving online consultation to guide fellow expats and to keep them well-informed of the things they do and decide for their health and wellness.

Dr. Aileen Villanueva has been a recipient of 2018 The Filipino Times Healthcare Professional of the Year. She has been conducting the “Online consultation with Dr. Aileen” for Filipinos and other expatriates in UAE who needs professional and medical advice with regards to their health amidst the global pandemic.

Dr. Aileen said through a Facebook post that she will be allocating time over her two-week break to assist those who seek medical help.

“In our current situation of COVID-19 pandemic, many lost their jobs with the cancellation of their health insurances, there’s a fear of visiting clinics or hospitals, rather they will pause and think, “what if I get the virus?”. For these reasons, I came up with “on line consultation with Dr. Aileen”, and I know this action of mine will make a difference even just a little help from me, and it is not how much we do, but how much LOVE you put on whatever you do,” says Dr. Villanueva.

The Filipina doctor hopes that through this online free consultation, she can give a breath of fresh air in times of difficulty as prevention is so much better than cure. She also wishes to help those who are in UAE with a visit visa only and no health insurance.

“There are so many ways to help out others. As a doctor I have a great responsibility for the health of the community,” says Villanueva.

Dr. Villanueva will offer her free services through her Facebook page.
