Siobhán Faenza, MD

Chief Resident

Siobhán grew up in the DC suburbs of Maryland. She received her B.S. in Public Health from the University of South Carolina in 2015 and her M.D. from the University of Maryland in Baltimore, MD in 2019. She completed Internal Medicine residency at SCMVC in 2022. 

Siobhán is tremendously passionate about medicine, specifically outpatient medicine. She wields her background in education in her roles as patient educator, team leader, and now chief resident. As a testament to this, she gave a Grand Rounds on the power of written communication in patient education and how the intricacies of font, symbol, layout, and paragraphing affect our patient's retention of information after clinical visits. Her medical school training has made her especially in tune with health care inequities and gun violence. Despite her interest in outpatient medicine, she is a fierce inpatient clinician and a strong patient advocate for the critically ill.

Outside of work Siobhán is a lover of the outdoors. Her move to California has opened her eyes to the beauty of our State parks and the legendary mystique of Yosemite National Park. She and her husband are currently the proud parents of a baby sequoia tree whose life story she will joyfully tell you about if she is given the opportunity. Formerly a gymnast, she can instead now be found on days off with boots on the ground and hiking poles in hand.

Scott Wong, DO

Chief Resident

Scott grew up in Southern California. He received his B.S. in molecular and cellular biology at University of California Berkeley in 2012 and then his D.O. at Touro University - California  in 2019. He completed Internal Medicine residency at SCMVC in 2022. 

At work, Scott is known for his unwavering devotion to excellent clinical care. He will often be found supervising procedures, expounding upon the nuances of the bedside manner, or ultrasounding all willing volunteers with his new Butterfly. He holds an all-time record of three-time Valley Resident of the Year, where he was cited by his classmates as the "go-to-guy" for both life advice and RRT's. He will soon be taking his talents to academic hospital medicine, where he hopes he will be able to continue teaching, connecting, and saving lives.
 
Outside of work, you may have a hard time reaching Scott as he is usually well out of signal range biking the mountains of Northern California, upside-down working on a DIY project, or chronicling the adventures of his one-eyed pygmy owl, Tiny.
