Project Description

Kristina Chongsiriwatana, MD

Dr. Chongsiriwatana was born and raised in Albuquerque and attended Amherst College in Massachusetts. She missed New Mexico during her four years back East, so returned to Albuquerque for medical school and doesn’t plan on moving away again. She likes to travel, knit and crochet in her free time. Many of her patients call her Dr. Chong, which some women find easier to pronounce than her seven syllable last name.
