Since childhood, Dr. Hwang wanted to be a doctor. It was a dream his parents strongly encouraged. Dr. Hwang’s parents emigrated from Taiwan so that his father could pursue a Master’s in Mineral Engineering at the University of Alaska, Fairbanks and a Ph.D. at Penn State. Dr. Hwang was born in Arizona and shortly thereafter moved to Lakeland, FL, where he grew up. “My parents were a great influence and taught me the importance of hard work, and of being humble and kind,” Dr. Hwang said. His father, an engineer and his mother, a business owner, were a source of motivation for both Dr. Hwang and his brother, an anesthesiologist at Georgetown University. “Being able to see our parents achieve the ‘American Dream’ was inspiring and their support certainly led to the pursuit of our medical careers.”

Dr. Hwang’s inspiration was also fueled by his experience in high school, in which he participated in an executive leadership program that provided the opportunity to shadow an Interventional Radiologist after school. “Students in the program were able to choose a career and spend time in the field. The program not only helped me experience Radiology, but a variety of other medical specialties such as obstetrics and cardiology.”

As a sophomore at Georgetown University, Dr. Hwang gained early acceptance to the Georgetown University School of Medicine, which enabled him to study abroad at King’s College London during his junior year. After graduation from college, Dr. Hwang pursued an MD/MBA degree at Georgetown. “During medical school, I tried to keep an open mind about each specialty, but I was definitely drawn to Radiology,” Dr. Hwang said. “During my clinical rotations, I noticed that Radiology often played a key role in patient diagnosis. Ultimately, that was why I chose this specialty.”

Dr. Hwang completed a transitional year internship at St. Vincent’s Hospital in Manhattan, followed by a Radiology residency and a neuroradiology fellowship at the Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology in St. Louis, MO. He and his wife met in St. Louis and thought about staying in Missouri; but upon visiting RAF, it was the culture and dynamic that impacted their decision to move to Fredericksburg. “I saw how much the doctors enjoyed their work here. It’s a collaborative, collegial group. I learn so much from my colleagues. As a medical group, we have a true community, and we are dedicated to serving the greater Fredericksburg community together.” Dr. Hwang joined the group in 2010.

Dr. Hwang is the Physician Director of Neuroradiology at RAF as well as the physician recruiter. He enjoys introducing applicants to the strong, positive culture that exists at RAF. “That is the theme that defines RAF: in all we do, we think of our patients’ needs first and how we can provide the best possible care to meet those needs.” Dr. Hwang also serves on the Stroke Steering Committee and the Code Neuro Peer Review Team. “Imaging is such an important part of stroke diagnosis and management. Active involvement with the Stroke Team is essential, especially with continual updates in stroke guidelines,” Dr. Hwang said.

Dr. Hwang resides in Fredericksburg with his wife, Denise, who is the Director of Advancement at Fredericksburg Academy. Dr. and Mrs. Hwang have an 8-year-old daughter, Chelsea, and a 15-year-old feline family member, Newman. They are thankful to call Fredericksburg “home”.
