2016 Top Doctors: Robert Wong, M.D.
Dr. Robert Wong, a board-certified gastroenterologist, has been practicing in Hawai‘i for nine years. With specialized training in advanced endoscopy, including pancreatic-biliary diseases and gastrointestinal cancers, he is the first physician in Hawai‘i to perform endoscopic, minimally invasive ultrasound and biopsy to diagnose pancreatic and other digestive system disorders. He has performed more than 3,000 of these procedures and other advanced endoscopic techniques.
Dr. Wong is a co-founder of the Pacific Endoscopy Center, which has served more than 50,000 patients since 2008. In addition to colonoscopy and EGD, it also provides multiple other specialty services. “Prevention of colon cancer, the nation’s second most common cause of cancer death, is one of the most important jobs I do,” says Dr. Wong. Prevention requires a colonoscopy screening, a cause for some patients’ anxiety and fear. Pacific Endoscopy Center’s warm environment and friendly staff enhance an efficient and painless experience. “We want our patients to return, so we work hard to ensure their experience is comfortable and memorable.”
