Enrico Sobong, medical oncologist, and Esther Sobong, pathologist, are physicians who have been practicing in Grand Rapids since 1980. They received their medical education in the Philippines, where they were born and raised. They came to the USA in 1974 to pursue post-graduate training in their respective specialties.
