PGY: PGY-3 (Chief Resident)
Medical School: West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine
Undergraduate: Marshall University
Hometown: Paden City, West Virginia

"I am from a small town in West Virginia, so a family medicine residency in a small town felt right. This program has allowed me to explore the many specialties that medicine has to offer with enough freedom to do so due to the numerous electives available. I also like that this is a smaller and unopposed program, so I do not have to contend with many other residents or fellows for procedures. I did find my passion in emergency medicine while completing this residency and am currently applying to Emergency Medicine Family Medicine Fellowships with the hope to work as an EM physician and Hospitalist when I am finished. In my free time I enjoy being able to spend time with my nephews, family, and friends. I also enjoy traveling."

My special interest lies in the management of chronic medical conditions. I enjoy traveling, reading books, watching movies and playing tennis.

"I like the Holzer Family Medicine Residency program due to the experienced and friendly teaching staff, one-on-one interaction with our preceptors, as well as the hands-on training and interaction with the diverse Appalachian population and their different healthcare needs. It is an excellent learning experience."

There is a lot of information when it comes to disease processes and navigating through the health care system. I can understand how difficult to it can be and I want to help guide patients through it.

Medical School: Ohio University Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine
Undergraduate: Alabama A&M University
Hometown: Tuskegee, Alabama

"Since starting residency, I’ve found that I have a passion for both inpatient and outpatient medicine. Following residency, I hope to pursue a fellowship in Emergency Medicine and Sports Medicine. I came to the area not knowing much about Gallipolis, but it has become a second home. I enjoy relaxing to music, working out and enjoying time with my daughter, during my free time. Gallipolis is a treat, as it offers serene views with a touch of 'Southern hospitality.'"

"I am a life-long resident of Greenup County, Kentucky, with multi-generational ties to the Ohio River Valley. I enjoy hiking, weightlifting, shooting sports, bushcraft, mountain biking and a variety of other outdoor activities and pursuits. My medical interests include preventative medicine and sports medicine/fitness. The family medicine program at Holzer was a great choice for me and for any prospective family medicine resident wishing to have flexibility in pursuing your individual interests within family medicine, while also preparing you well for practicing in a rural setting."



Karen Wong, DOKaren D. Wong, DO

PGY: PGY-2
Medical School: Ohio University Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine
Undergraduate: University of California, Davis
Hometown: Oakland, California

"I enjoy working with patients from the young children to the youthful elderly. My special interests are in preventative medicine, osteopathic manipulation, dermatological ailments, and serving the under-served and underrepresented populations. Being in an unopposed rural program, this residency affords me the opportunity to shape my experience in residency into what I want it to be. Having a background in research from immune profiling and surgical recovery to developing continuous glucose monitors and a new class of antibiotics, I have been able to continue to use and expand on my research experience here at Holzer. However, what I enjoy most about being here is how friendly and nice everyone has been, as well as the lack of traffic and the low cost of living. During my free time, I enjoy photography, gardening, baking, and traveling."

I love to learn new things and life-long learning is a passion of mine."
