Dr. Wong is a transplant hepatologist with expertise in caring for patients across the continuum of liver disease from diagnosis to post-liver transplantation. She practices at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center and the Pfleger Liver Institute.

Dr. Wong also conducts public health research to improve the quality of care and health outcomes for populations with chronic liver disease. Her research leverages epidemiological and health services methods to perform multilevel risk assessments in populations with chronic liver disease to achieve earlier detection of liver disease and reduce barriers to health care access and utilization for groups with socioeconomic disparities.

She completed her clinical training in the Yale Traditional Internal Medicine Residency Program and gastroenterology and advanced transplant hepatology fellowships at UCLA. 

With support from the UCLA Specialty Training and Advanced Research and Ruth L. Kirshstein National Research Service Award T32 fellowship programs, she completed her doctorate training in the Department of Health Policy and Management at the UCLA Fielding School of Public Health.
