Dr. Tong's Care Philosophy
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.
