He served in Queen Elizabeth Hospital I, II and Sultanah Aminah Hospital Johor Bahru for total five years (Head in the Intensive Care Unit) and joined KPJ Sabah Specialist Hospital since 03/2014. He provided “wholistic care” but not “organ-specific care” for his patient, especially for those with complicated co-morbidities. By doing this he is able to reduce patient mortality, length of hospital stay and the cost. Besides, he has special knowledge and skills in the airway problem such as invasive & non-invasive ventilation (The care that beyond respiration). For the internal medicine, he is not only a general physician who can treat general medical diseases (diabetes, hypertension, dyslipidemia, gouty arthritis etc), but he is also able to combine modern western and traditional medicine to treat certain diseases such as difficult asthma, refractory dizziness, hypertension, COPD, anemia or even terminal illness diseases. Dr David Wong is also a columnist for years in Mandarin Newspaper like Sin Chew, See Hua, Asia Times, Overseas Chinese Daily Newspaper and so on. Strongly believe in the phrase: "I took the road less travelled by, and that has made all the difference" by Robert Frost – American Poet 1874-1963.
