About Me

Care Philosophy

I treat each patient as if they were a member of my family. I walk each patient through their diagnosis, imaging, and management options - whether they are surgical or not. If something requires surgery, I aim for the least invasive and safest option.

Dr Wong was fantastic. He was very thorough in talking with me and my family. His confidence made us very comfortable compared to other surgeons. In an unfortunate circumstance of neurological surgery I myself would want him to operate on me.
