Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Wong "I believe that my patients should be well-informed about all aspects of their care. Knowledgeable patients make better decisions, and are more involved in their care. That is why I explain each step of the diagnostic process to determine your treatment options. These may or may not include surgery. I encourage learning from any other sources you trust (Internet, friends, another doctor, etc.), and asking questions. I welcome discussing anything you find, so we can apply it to your individual case. I believe in a comprehensive program with the goal of returning you to full function without pain. I incorporate the latest advancements with the proven traditional methods to reach this goal. I prefer a hands-on approach, so I take care of all casts and wounds myself, and see all my own patients. This program also encourages your involvement in the decision process and participation in all therapeutic measures. I feel this approach will optimize your final outcome."

Patient Comments (2)

I had hip replacement surgery in September 2017. Dr. Wong and his staff was professional, courteous, and efficient throughout this process, and Dr. Wong took every precaution to minimize complications. My recovery and rehabilitation has been fast and I'm very pleased with the overall results.

Dr. Wong was absolutely darling & knowledgeable with my daughter's broken hand. I was impressed with his bedside manner & care. I recommended him to a friend immediately who scheduled an appointment that day.
