Anthony Wong, MD

Anthony Wong, MD

Reflex Physician

Dr. Wong was born in Hong Kong, China but his family moved to Arizona before he was a year old. He grew up in Tempe, AZ and attended Brophy College Prep for high school, Arizona State University for undergraduate studies and the University of Arizona for medical school. He swam competitively during his younger years but now just swims for exercise. He went to Pittsburgh, PA for residency in both Emergency Medicine and Internal Medicine and met his wife, Kelly, who was a nurse at the same hospital. After residency he convinced her to move to Arizona to be back with his family. He has been working as an Emergency Medicine physician for over 15 years and still enjoys it. During residency he did a mini-fellowship in sports medicine and learned about hyaluronic acid injections and PRP at that time which was cutting edge technology and used by many professional athletes. He always envisioned using that knowledge sometime in the future and it must have been fate that he and Reflex found each other. He is board certified in Emergency Medicine and became a Fellow of the American College of Emergency Physicians. He has served as a clinical assistant professor in Emergency Medicine for the University of Arizona Phoenix Campus as well as the chair of the Medicine department at Banner Ironwood and Banner Goldfield hospitals. He has also served on the Board of Directors and Executive Board as Treasurer of the Arizona College of Emergency Physicians.

Outside of medicine Dr. Wong likes to be active and enjoys swimming, golfing, biking, hiking, skiing, scuba diving, and chasing after his 3 young boys. He also loves traveling, dining, cooking, and watching movies. Given his active lifestyle he enjoys helping others maintain their active lifestyle and is excited to bring Reflex knee care to Arizona. He enjoys rooting for all of the Arizona sports teams including the Cardinals, Suns, Diamondbacks, Coyotes and his alma mater ASU Sun Devils! His favorite mantra is, “Work hard, play harder!”
