DR Wong is 82 and now suffering from the dreaded Alzheimer’s disease Click here to read more.
I used to work in IMH ( formerly called Woodbridge Hospital ) with Dr Wong. He was a respected psychiatrist even in those days where I was from 1964 till 1967 as a nursing staff.
I still remember other prominent psychiatrists like Dr Ngui and Dr Tsoi. They are probably in their 80's now.
It is sad to hear Dr Wong is suffering from Alzheimer's disease. It is a dreaded disease and is a form of Dementia. Dementia is a loss of brain function that occurs with certain diseases. Alzheimer's disease (AD), is one form of dementia that gradually gets worse over time. It affects memory, thinking, and behavior.
