Dr. Michael Wong is one of fewer than 300 board-certified veterinary neurologists practicing in North America. He graduated magna cum laude from the University of Florida (UF) College of Veterinary Medicine and while there, founded the UF Veterinary Business Management Association. He also went on to complete a medical and surgical internship at Red Bank Veterinary Hospital in Tinton Falls, New Jersey. Dr. Wong subsequently received his neurology and neurosurgery training at North Florida Neurology.
After completing his residency, Dr. Wong successfully passed his neurology certifying examination and became board-certified in veterinary neurology in the same year. He was one of the first veterinary neurologists to complete the Advanced Neurosurgical Certification, and founded Southeast Veterinary Neurology (SEVN) in 2010.
Dr. Wong has lectured at the local, state, and national levels and has instructed veterinary students at UF. He has also published articles on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and new treatments for encephalitis and brain tumors. He enjoys all aspects of neurology, but his passions include spinal surgery, seizure management, management of encephalitis, and MRI in the diagnosis of neurological disease.
In 2014, Dr. Wong was featured on several local news stations in Miami for helping a paralyzed Dachshund with a free surgery. You can learn more about this “Christmas Gift” to a wonderful family here and here. In his free time, Dr. Wong enjoys spending time with his wife and family, mountain biking, surfing, and playing the bass guitar and ukulele.
Thanks to the amazing team at Southeast Veterinary Neurology for taking care of my Nano. I can say I will spend a worry free Christmas because I know he is in good hands. Cant wait to have him home and thank you again, Dr. Wong and his team are incredible at what they do!
I brought Toby in at 3:30 am, panicked and scared, but we were met with kindness and calmness. Dr. Little and a technician performed a few tests and gave me an honest review on what I was looking at for his diagnosis and cost of treatment. I left Toby there for about a week for in-house rehab, where my worries were eased by twice a day phone call updates and pictures of Toby’s progress. Toby came in not being able to walk on his hind legs and left the facility walking on his own. My Toby was loved on so much and treated with the utmost care. Thank you so much, Southeast Veterinary Neurology!
