"My family medicine residency director, Dr. Greengold had a profound impact on me. He was the quintessential primary care physician, someone I would be honored to emulate in how I care for my patients. As I rotated through each of the fields during medical school, I found interest in many different specialties. Caring for patients in an Urgent Care setting allows me to incorporate many areas of medicine into my practice."

Dr. Wong believes in actively involving his patients in their own care.

"By educating them, I can empower them to take control of their health and well-being. I get great satisfaction from listening to my patients, helping them understand their condition, and then working together to make decisions on their care and treatment plan."

Outside of the office, Dr. Wong loves spending time with family. He really enjoys skiing, fishing, playing tennis and volleyball, or going camping and hiking.

Dr. Wong is an urgent care physician and may not be selected as a primary care physician.
