Learn about this doctor

Care Philosophy

Patient-centered independent solo practice. The doctor is accessible 24/7 to patients on his cellular phone for emergencies. Same day appointment is provided. Being a solo practitioner with hospital privileges reduce errors of omission in care and provide continuity of care when patients get sick and have to be cared for in the hospital. For 15 years in this practice, the use of electronic health record has improved patient care. The goal was to provide the best care possible for patients. Increased efficiency and safer care came with the redesign of the practice.Read more

Dr. Wong is very knowledgeable, available, and pleasant. He is very accessible to patients. Unlike many physicians in Tuolumne County he doesn't pretend to be God, and he does a good job of educating patients and answering questions. He is very flexible with scheduling appointments, and I can usually get into see him promptly.

Dr. Wong was very impatient, curt, and rude. He did not listen, but interrupted continually. I would not recommend Dr. Wong.
