I believe my greatest strength is that I love cardiac surgery because of the tremendous positive impact I can make in the lives of patients. There is no greater personal joy and satisfaction than being able to help patients in their journey from crippling symptoms to health.
I recognize that no two patients are alike and believe in delivering personalized care to each and every patient. I am patient, thoughtful, empathetic and detail oriented.

"I had an amazing experience at the Cleveland Clinic. Dr. Tong met with us and went over everything about the surgery and what to expect. He also answered all of our questions and spent time with us. We never felt rushed and he had a very calming manner. We felt very confident after meeting with Dr. Tong about my surgery.
After surgery, he assured us that everything went very well and that I would recover nicely. I would give Dr. Tong a + 10 rating , 10 being the best."
