    Dr. Wong is a very kind, compassionate, thorough and, extremely talented surgeon/professional. In 2018 I had been a patient of a Plastic Surgeon at Central Baptist who performed breast reconstruction after a bilateral prophylactic mastectomy. In early 2019 I developed a staff or strep (not confirmed) infection and found that my surgeon had left CB along with all other reconstructive plastic surgeons. I would like to say that my care at CB was very good and that the infection was unrelated to my surgery, however, when I needed help, Dr. Wong and her clinicians/staff quite literally opened their arms and took care of me without question. Moving on (I promise) Dr. Wong has provided the very best of care and I am forever grateful to her and her staff. The receptionist I spoke to the day I was desperately looking for a surgeon to help said "don't you worry, we will help you". I have never left the office with an unanswered question and never has anyone been impatient or rude. Dr. Wong and all who support her in the clinic and hospital are simply the best, a model for best practices....with a heart. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

    Dr. and staff were very pleasant and patient. I felt very comfortable in talking with them. Dr. Hollie Galion made the appointment with Dr. Wong for me.

    Dr Wong saw me for around. she informed me of implant recall & was very informative & kind. she was not my original surgeon so I really appreciate her.
