He is the current President of the Honolulu County Medical Society, President of the Hawaii Ophthalmological Society, and an Assistant Clinical Professor at the UH John A. Burns School of Medicine.
Together with his son, Ophthalmologist Dr. William K. Wong Jr., they are the first medical practitioners in Hawaii to offer the Pelleve® System, a radiofrequency procedure for safe, painless, effective treatment of wrinkles and aging skin all over the body.
Dr. Wong, Sr. diagnoses and treats general dermatologic conditions such as Acne, Infections, Eczema, Psoriasis and other Dermatitis.
Moreover, he does dermatologic surgical removal of warts, cyst, moles and various skin cancers. His expertise in skin conditions applies perfectly to cosmetic procedures such as Botox and Dysport injections, chemical peels, Restylane filler for scars, and laser treatments for excess body hairs, sun damaged skin blemishes and aging lines and wrinkles.
He is also the first dermatologist in Hawaii to offer Excimer Laser Light System — specifically designed to treat psoriasis, atopic dermatitis, itching from many causes, including kidney failure and Vitiligo, a cosmetically disabling loss of skin pigmentation. In addition, he offers total body Ultraviolet Light (UVB-NB) treatments for generalized outbreaks of psoriasis, eczema and other dermatosis.
Recently, as an outgrowth from his personal search for optimal health and wellness, he discovered BHRT (Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy), which has been effective in restoring vigor and vitality to his own body. Now he offers this service to selected patients who welcome this type of medical guidance.
