Early in his medical career, as both an inpatient attending and outpatient primary care doctor, Dr. Wong witnessed the best and worst of Western medicine: the triumph of acute life-saving interventions coupled with frustratingly ineffective approaches to complex chronic conditions. So often a one-size-fits-all prescription didn’t work. Patients weren’t receiving what they really need: time, a deeper definition of the root-causes of their illnesses, and the knowledge, tools, and support to improve their health.
Dr. Wong searched for wiser and more powerful approaches to healing. He received extensive advanced training and certifications in holistic, integrative and functional medicine; acupuncture; and meditation. He discovered the potential for medicine to provide true health and true healing for patients, and along the way learned to take care of himself and his young family. Now Dr. Wong personally walks the walk, teaches, and collaborates with his patients in an authentically healing process. In co-founding and directing Capital Integrative Health, he is pleased to be able to offer this experience to his patients.
