I found Dr. Tong interested in my entire health history as well as my most recent injury. It was a thorough exam and review of my recent MRI, which was inconclusive. He recommended a Cat Scan of my spine, which identified the fracture and subsequent conservative treatment, which is helping

Dr. Tong is a very caring and understanding doctor. Dr. Tong will explain to you your medical condition in interms that you will understand, not like alot of other doctors I've visited before. He explains what his plains are for your treatment and is always focusing on what steps can be made in making you better. He is always patient and never rushes you. I would recommend him to family and friends he is someone i trust and feel confident about as a doctor.

Dr. Tong is very professional and friendly. Based on test data, examinations, patient interviews and his medical training, he recommends a medical plan of action. One of the things I like most about him is that he listens to me and thoroughly answers my questions. He explains the benefits as well as possible adverse side-effects of medical procedures. I would definitely recommend Dr. Tong to my family and friends..

Lf in Royal Oak, MI – Jan 20, 2017
I've been a patient of Dr. Tong for several years and find him terrific. First off he is very knowledgeable and quick to recognize medical issues associated with my lower back. His recommendations are spot on and I follow them to the "t". Both the physical exercises and medicine are handling my situation very well. Whenever I have an appointment the interchange with him is interesting and rewarding. Dr. Tong is very dedicated to his profession and it's obvious with his explanations and style.

Dr. Tong is a great doctor! He takes the time to listen to his patients & has been the only doctor able to help me with my lower back pain that I've dealt with for years before seeing him. He explains things so you understand and teaches exercises to help with your condition. I feel better immediately after he does adjustments on my back.

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!
