2018 Top Doctors: Robert Wong, M.D.
Dr. Robert Wong, a board-certified gastroenterologist, has been practicing in Hawai‘i for 11 years. With specialized training in advanced endoscopy, he is the first physician in Hawai‘i to perform endoscopic, minimally invasive ultrasound and biopsy to diagnose pancreatic-biliary diseases, gastrointestinal cancers and other disorders. He has performed more than 4,000 of these procedures and other advanced endoscopic techniques.
Dr. Wong co-founded the Pacific Endoscopy Center (PEC) in 2008, which has served more than 100,000 patients. An ambulatory surgery center focusing on colonoscopy, EGD and other endoscopic procedures, PEC prides itself on delivering top-notch care to patients while offering a cheaper, more efficient alternative to hospitals. Additionally, patient satisfaction and procedural metrics show quality at the center far exceeds national expectations. “To me it’s a no brainer,” says Dr. Wong. “Why not choose a place with superior safety, quality, efficiency and cost? At PEC, your entire experience is often done in 2 hours. At a hospital, you’d spend at least that much time just sitting in the waiting room.”
