Learn about Dr. Wong

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.

Dr Wong was compassionate and supportive in caring for my elderly father. He always took time to listen and to help our family face both the rewards and inevitable challenges involved in caring for a loved one approaching 100. Dr Wong even went to Avalon Care Unit when it was necessary.

Dr.Wong is very knowledgeable and is very kind. I find it easy to work with him and the receptionist Suzanne is also very helpful. They understand how insurance works and help their patients with problems. They are very prompt about getting your prescriptions ready for you at the pharmacy.

Dr Wing takes the time time to answer all my questions. If he doesn't know the answer he researches while I'm at my appointment.

Dr. Wong runs a unique small practice where he only sees one patient at a time and spends plenty of time at each visit ensuring patient needs are met.
in Sonora, CA |
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.
in Sonora, CA |
Dr. Wong was very impatient, curt, and rude. He did not listen, but interrupted continually. I would not recommend Dr. Wong.
