Dr. Kent Wong has the following 4 specialties
- Cardiovascular Disease
Cardiologists are doctors who specialize in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of conditions related to the heart and blood vessels.
A patient may be referred to a cardiologist if he experiences symptoms like chest pains, shortness of breath, dizziness, or high blood pressure. The physician will then evaluate your symptoms, take your health and family history and your weight. The cardiologist may order additional diagnostic tests, such as an echocardiogram, X-ray or blood tests. If necessary, the cardiologist may also call for a cardiac catheterization - a procedure in which a small tube is inserted into or near the heart that can take pictures of the heart's activity, or relieve blockage.
Once determining whether there is a heart condition, a cardiologist will treat a patient through cholesterol management, cardiac rehabilitation, and fitness. If surgical intervention is required, like open-heart surgery, a cardiologist will make that determination, but a cardiothoracic surgeon will perform the procedure.
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.
- Interventional Cardiology
An interventional cardiologist has the same training as a cardiologist and they're well-versed in all types of heart disease and how to diagnose heart problems. The difference is that interventional cardiologists have additional expertise and training on specific interventional treatments for heart disease, such as angioplasties and stents. These methods use catheterization, which reduces recovery time as well as scarring after surgery.
- Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS)
- Aortic Aneurysm
- Congenital Heart Disease (Patent Ductus Arteriosus)

- High Blood Pressure (Hypertension)

first they rescheduled my long-awaited stress test which is fine.then finally showed up for my next appointment and then accused I did not take a test so therefore you cannot see the doctor today. Excuse me... I explained to her no one notified me to take a previous test for today's test? Baffling it may seem. yes yes it was. Then she claimed she tried calling me to let me know about you may need to take another test before you arrive. She even verified by primary telephone number which I agreed "yes thas it". Like Tammy had a case. Ladies and gentleman. This funny. I checked my voicemail. She called me 6 minutes before my 4:00 pm. People I was driving or parking my car in the parking lot. Where is the fair warning. By then its too late. You think? Especially coming from out town. Which was my tim & money wasted. She may as well let me just walk up to the office and say you were cancelled that's pretty much what happened. Please no discredit to Dr. Wong. I only met him once and he seems like a really great guy very knowledgeable and he listens very well. Just the staff communication needs to be updated.
