2 Patient Reviews for Dr. Tong

"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."
