Meet Dr. Dong
Samuel Dong, M.D., FACP a Hill Health internal medicine doctor in Oakland, has enjoyed a 34-year career caring for patients.
“I really enjoy the interaction with my patients and getting to know the whole family. It’s a wonderful privilege to care for each of them,” says Dr. Dong, who is fluent in English and Toisan, a dialect of Cantonese.
As an internal medicine specialist, Dr. Dong cares for the whole patient and enjoys the challenges of understanding how to prevent, diagnose and treat a wide range of problems and diseases. “We learned about a lot of diseases in medical school that I never thought I’d see in practice. Over the years, I’ve seen much more than I thought I would,” he says.
If there is one thing Dr. Dong could tell his patients, he’d stress the importance of health and wellness. He emphasizes the role exercise and healthy eating habits play in preventing obesity and other chronic diseases.
Dr. Dong is an exercise buff himself. Outside of caring for patients, he hits the gym after work every evening for a boot camp class.
