Dr. Wong says...

My first job was standing on a milk crate while washing dishes at my parents' Chinese restaurant in Milwaukee.  The demands of the restaurant business must have impressed my first-generation siblings and me as we all ended up in graduate school! While an undergraduate at Harvard University, over half of my courses were outside of my biology major.  I loved learning about Asian history and art, and Shakespeare and child psychology, as well as meeting classmates from different backgrounds.

Before my fourth year at UC-Davis Medical School, I took a year off and worked as the medical education coordinator in over 20 developing countries with Project Orbis.  That year was pivotal in my decision to become an ophthalmologist.  I met so many eye doctors who felt fulfilled with their work and I saw so much good being done in the clinics and operating rooms.  Following my ophthalmology residency at California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco, I received a grant and traveled to India to perform cataract surgery and to work in the clinics at Aravind Eye Hospital with the Seva Foundation.

It's hard to believe that I have been in practice as a general ophthalmologist in Santa Rosa for over 20 years! I truly appreciate the wonderful opportunity to get to know my patients and their families over time.  On a given day at the office, I might measure a 3-year old child's eye alignment , drain a lid lesion in a middle-aged woman, and evaluate a man in his 80's for cataract surgery.  I find it especially touching when I see elderly couples having their eye exams together (I encourage them to make it a date and go out to eat afterwards!), or a devoted son or daughter bringing in their parent.

Although the science of medicine and the puzzle of a diagnosis offer never-ending stimulus and challenge, I enjoy how my work allows me the chance to improve the quality of a patient's life. I encourage my patients to ask questions, to consider preventive approaches, and to be involved in their overall health care. Brushing up on my Spanish has improved my communication skills. I remind myself daily that everyone has the need to be heard, understood, and treated with respect.

Behind every ophthalmologist is an amazing support staff.  I am proud of our excellent team at ECI/NCMA. It is only with their help that I can work with a smile, at least most of the time! They are here to assist you as well.
