About

Bio

Trusted and Experienced Care, Specializing in You! Trusted, because we will always do the right thing for our patients. Experienced Care from over 20 years of practice, acquiring wisdom and judgment and consistently good outcomes. Specializing in You because our patients are appreciated for the impact they have had on our lives and my career. We respect your time and appreciate your trust placed in us. This is our mantra of how we provide our services, providing the best and latest techniques to help our patients achieve their goals. We welcome the challenges that our patients bring to us as plastic surgery is a dynamic specialty that allows for creativity in solving them. As I grew up in Hawaii, it has influenced me considerably in how I treat patients. As you enter our office, you will be greeted with the scents of tropical flowers with the melodies of Hawaiian music. And it is there that we hope you will experience the spirit of Aloha as it embraces everything that we do. More details on my website www.drcurtiswong.com.
