New Family Physician

The Alliston and Area Physician Recruitment Committee (AAPRC), the Alliston Family Health Team (AFHT) and Stevenson Memorial Hospital (SMH) are pleased to officially announce that Dr. Deborah Wong has been recruited as a full time Family Physician in our community. 

Dr. Wong received her Medical degree at the University of Western Ontario and completed her Family Medicine Residency at the University of Toronto, working out of Toronto Western Hospital. She has interests in preventative medicine, women’s health, palliative care and hospitalist medicine.

Dr. Wong has taken on the patients of Dr. Oswaldo Ramirez and has been taking hospitalist shifts at Stevenson Memorial Hospital.

“Dr. Wong is a wonderful physician and we are so glad she chose to join us. She is an asset to the team and community,” said Dr. Izabella Kogan, lead physician at the FHT.          

Dr. Liesbet Jansen, Chief of Family Medicine at Stevenson said Dr. Wong is already making a difference on the in-patient ward as a part-time Hospitalist.  “She is compassionate and skilled, a great addition to our team here,” said Dr. Jansen.

Dr. Wong thanked the community for the warm welcome since she opened her practice. “Although I grew up and trained in Toronto I have always had a keen interest in rural medicine as, for me, it provides the opportunity to have a diverse practice. I look forward to providing you with quality care, getting to know the area and people and helping to grow our community,” she said.

“We welcome Dr. Wong and are really pleased that she has chosen to live and work in our community,” said Keith White, Chair of the AAPRC. “We wish her all the very best as she establishes her practice and home here.”
