Alice K Gong, M.D.
Professor and Medical Director
UTHSCSA - PREMIEre Program
William & Rita Head Distinguished Chair in Developmental and Environmental Neonatology
Not only do we provide care at our community--my mission is to be a leader in neonatal health in the country. I'm a neonatologist here at UT Health San Antonio and medical director for our PREMIERe Program. I received my medical degree from University of Mississippi School of Medicine and have been in practice for more than twenty years, specializing in neonatal-perinatal medicine. I received the Kaliski Award for Pediatrician in Advocacy, for my service to patients and pediatricians. I'm driven by giving back. I feel like I need to help other people get to where they need to go. In addition, I want to show compassion and help patients navigate difficult times. I believe its always good to have a passion for something. One of my favorite quotes is an " have an attitude of gratitude." I'm a wife, mother, and grandmother, who speaks multiple languages, including Chinese (Cantonese).
