      I've seen Dr Tong for over 14 years now with chronic pain in my lower back and neck. He has done several epidural injections. Dr Tong is a wealth of knowledge. He also has one of the best nurses I've ever been around, Tracy! Very kind and caring doctor. Takes as much time as needed with each patient. His staff is fantastic also! I highly recommend Dr Tong with pain issues!

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      I specialize in the nonsurgical evaluation and management of low back pain and neck pain.

      I have many peer-reviewed publications, national posters, and awards related to the evaluation and management of back pain.  Fellowship trained in spine care and electrodiagnostic testing, I taught fellows and residents for several years at the University of Michigan Spine Program before joining Michigan Head and Spine Institute.

      In addition to being board certified in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, I also hold a certificate in pain medicine subspecialty from the American Board of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation and certification from the American Board of Electrodiagnostic Medicine.
