Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Tong "I have the privilege of treating patients with both benign and malignant conditions of the chest. While in college at Georgia Tech I envisioned a career as a biomedical engineer. What I quickly learned however was that I was more interested in patients and their medical problems than developing the technology to care for them. During my medical education and training I learned not only how to become a surgeon but also learned the value of teamwork and family in caring for patients. As a thoracic surgeon One of the best and most important aspects of my job is being able to establish a relationship with my patients and their families working together to help them through their illness."
