Mr Ray Yong-

MBBS (Melb), FRACS

I am a Breast, Endocrine and General Surgeon committed to serving the residents of Wyndham City. Having lived in Point Cook since 2007, I consider myself a local resident. I pride myself on the four “A” qualities that make a good Surgeon:  Accessibility, Affability, Accountability and Affordability.

I see all new patients within days of a referral. I am extremely thorough and all new consultations are at least 30 mins in length. I also speak fluent Mandarin, Cantonese & Hakka for the convenience of non English speaking patients.
