Jenelle Wong MD
Jenelle Wong MD has a passion for treating allergies and asthma
Childhood experiences inspired Jenelle Wong MD to become a pediatrician. According to the Plano pediatrician, “When my sister had eye surgery at a young age, I enjoyed taking care of her during her recovery, which inspired me to become a pediatrician.”
Dr. Wong loves all aspects of pediatrics, but she especially enjoys treating children for allergies and asthma. “My three siblings and I suffered from allergies and asthma. In fact, two of us ended up in the emergency room for asthma attacks. I never want another child or parent to go through that experience.”
Today she educates parents about asthma to put them in control of their children’s respiratory health. “Asthma can present in different ways, and parents may not realize their child has a problem. I work to debunk myths about the condition so that parents can take steps to get their child’s asthma under control. The goal is to prevent it from interfering with daily life and activities like sports.”
