I graduated from NYU with a physical therapy degree in 1996, received my Advanced Masters degree in Orthopedics Medicine from Quinnipiac University in 2000, and completed my Transitional DPT degree from Arcadia University in 2020. I have been a licensed PT since 1996, and have worked in NYC for more than 2 decades.

I was a guest speaker for the ATC program at Long Island University, conducted in-services for various physical therapy clinics, presented various injury-prevention talks to the Brooklyn TriClub athletes and Charles B. Wang Community Health Center

Be humble, be curious for knowledge, be kind and respectful to others, and be honest.

PATIENT TESTIMONIALS

“Dr Wing is fantastic – she is extremely descriptive and encouraging and helped me recover from surgery very quickly. Her office is in a nice building and very centrally located. I highly recommend her services. With her assistance I was able to progress through treatment faster than scheduled and she did not push for unnecessary sessions – she is extremely mindful of her patients time.”
Lyndsey, Brooklyn, NY

“Wing is an amazing physical therapist. I was diagnosed with De Quervain Tendonitis in July 2014, then received a cortisone shot in September 2014 from a hand specialist which only lasted 2 months, and have been suffering from the pain and inability to utilize my right hand properly until I went to Wing in late August 2015. After basically 2 months of PT with 11 sessions (with some breaks in between), I have almost full use of my right hand! My range of motion has greatly improved, and it no longer hinders my everyday activities. Wing was very attentive, communicative, and supportive throughout the process.”
Alison, Brooklyn, NY

“Wing Wong-Tom is an exceptionally talented PT, who can solve problems that other body-work professionals and doctors can not; I am living proof.

In Oct. of 2017, shortly before turning 50, I began having a little shoulder discomfort, which I assumed would resolve itself and disappear like so many other minor aches and pains.

Unfortunately, this issue, later diagnosed by an orthopedic surgeon as “Adhesive Capsulitis” (Frozen Shoulder) did NOT go away, and little by little it actually got worse. What began as a little discomfort when lifting something heavy overhead, devolved over 4-5 months into a state where I could not take off a tight jacket without help from a friend.

Not being inclined towards western medical science, I first visited my acupuncturist (4-5 times), and saw a well-recommended PT (4-5 times). When these highly capable professionals did not bring relief, I visited a chiropractor friend of mine, and ultimately even an orthopedic surgeon, who did some X-rays and injected a steroid /cortisone into the back of my shoulder. Instead of long-term help, this only made my limited range of motion more of a sharp limit rather than a tender one which hurt more when pressed further.

It was at this point that I had the good fortune of two sessions with Wing during a visit to NYC. It was with great pleasure and surprise that after seeing Wing, I finally began to improve! The combination of her therapy and the exercises that she provided have finally turned my shoulder from declining to improving, and I’m so grateful to have had her care.”
