About Dr. Michael Tong,
Heart Valve Surgeon
Hello! My name is Dr. Michael Tong and I am a cardiac surgeon having graduated from McGill University Faculty of Medicine in 2006.

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.
6 Patient Reviews for
"Dr. Tong is an excellent communicator. He is calm and confident in his demeanor and knowledgeable. He handled my Aortic Valve replacement and Bypass for one artery in the same procedure."

"This surgeon is absolutely amazing! I felt very confident in Dr. Tong on my first visit with him. He is very personal and caring. He is one of those people that can display his intelligence, confidence,kindness merely by his disposition. I was blessed to have the best I believe to perform the procedures, Dr. Tong completed for me. This is Day 5 after surgery I am getting my legs back underneath me again. All tests I believe are positive and if and when I ever required a heart surgery again I would be trying to find Dr. Tong to perform. Highly recommend him to anyone facing this! Stressful time going into the unknown for me, but I feel I couldn’t have got anyone better ( so do others as well)!"
