My elder brother Ramon Wong was born in 1953. He was delivered by Phoon Seck-wah. Thus I believe Phoon was still in practice in the early 1950's.

Thanks for the message and I am sure he was. I haven't done much with regard to post 1948 information but I am sure I'll get there somehow someday.

I believe he and his wife emigrated to Australia in 1966 to join their children who had settled there after finishing their studies.

He was still in practice in Sydney in 1984 when he passed away suddenly.
