Dr. Bonnie Wong, DO, recently joined the Mesa team at A.T. Still University Osteopathic Medicine Center Arizona. She is a graduate of A.T. Still University’s School of Osteopathic Medicine in Arizona (ATSU-SOMA) with extensive experience providing osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT).
Wong is a passionate proponent of osteopathic techniques, due in part to her own experience receiving OMT. For 30 years, she suffered chronic sinus infections. After just one visit to an osteopathic physician, she says her sinus issues were resolved and never returned. The results were similar to what she would have expected from sinus surgery, without the risks or discomfort.
“Just one treatment from a skilled osteopathic physician helped to resolve what years of antibiotics couldn’t do,” Wong said. “I love to observe how osteopathy not only treats musculoskeletal issues and chronic pain, but also infectious disease, concussions, fatigue, and many other conditions.”
Wong is a board-certified family practice physician, and loves to treat patients of all ages with a wide range of conditions. She delivered many babies during her residency training, and has focused on treatment of pregnancy, birth, and pediatrics. As an osteopathic fellow working with obstetricians, she turned breach babies using a very gentle osteopathic approach, allowing mothers to give birth naturally, rather than by cesarean section.
“The key to effectively treating patients with osteopathy lies in understanding the cause of the problem, whether it’s anatomical, physiological, psychological, or lifestyle-related,” Wong said. “I became inspired to work as an osteopathic family physician when I saw the power of osteopathy to help the body heal itself.”
Now that Wong has joined the team, the Mesa center is open full time. The new hours are Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. It is closed daily from noon to 1 p.m. for lunch. Call 480-248-8198, or email email@example.com to make an appointment.
