What first drew Dr. Wong to medicine was the desire to alleviate a patient’s pain and suffering. His approach to patient care is to employ a comprehensive and multimodal approach to meet the unique needs of each and every patient.
He believes in truly working together with the patient as a team, and that teaching every patient about their underlying illness and possible treatments is most effective to achieving long term pain relief. Dr. Wong is expertly trained in a wide range of treatments including ultrasound guided injections, fluoroscopically guided spinal injections, peripheral nerve blocks, joint injections, minimally invasive spinal stenosis decompression, peripheral nerve stimulators, and spinal cord stimulation.
Dr. Michael Wong was born in Buffalo, New York to parents who emigrated from Taiwan for higher education. He graduated with a degree in Premedical Science from Lehigh University, after which he attended Drexel University for his medical education. He went on to complete both a residency in Anesthesiology and a fellowship in Pain Management at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital. He is double board-certified in Anesthesiology and Interventional Pain Management.
Before moving to Arizona, Dr. Wong practiced in Maryland for over 10 years. He was voted as a “Top Doctor” by Baltimore Magazine several times, most recently in 2022. He received multiple honors for excellence in patient care and his contributions to the community. He is excited to continue providing extraordinary care for his patients here in Arizona.
In his spare time, Dr. Wong mostly enjoys spending time with his wife and two children. He also enjoys working out, playing billiards, tennis, and cooking.
