My son had a great experience with Dr. Tong. He had Ptosis and has always had droopy eyes. His eyes are so bright now and we can really see a change in him! Thank you Dr. Tong and staff!!

Dr. Tong is remarkable. He made both my daughter and me feel at ease throughout the entire process. Surgery went smoothly and while it was an emotional process, he made us feel comfortable during each visit. He gave thorough and complete information in a clear manner. His bedside manner with my daughter was very warm and welcoming. Thank you, Dr. Tong for your amazing service to our family.

Dr. Tong is wonderful! His care for our baby changed our lives. At a routine exam, he found a bump on our son's retina and immediately referred us to the appropriate specialist, who then diagnosed him with retinoblastoma. He followed up with us on the day of the diagnosis to see how everything went, which meant so much to us. Dr. Tong's discovery ultimately saved our son's eye and life, and we are forever grateful for his expertise. We love our visits to his office!

There aren't enough good things I can say about Dr. Tong, his staff and their office! The office was so clean and the patient rooms are large with amazing toys and room for kids to play. There was virtually no wait time to be seen. Dr. Tong is exceptional at what he does. He used so many tricks and gizmos to keep my baby's attention and was so knowledgable of his field. He put my fears at ease and made our experience so wonderful. I would highly recommend him!

Dr. Tong is nothing short of amazing! He is so caring and patient from the smallest of kids the older ones. He has seen all four of our kids age ranging from 7 to 6 months and he is just tremendous. I would recommend him to anyone looking for the BEST pediatric ophthalmologist because he is the best around. Also the office is very clean and the staff is friendly which is always a plus when it comes to picking a place to take your kids.

We drive all the way from Waco to see Dr.Tong because he is amazing! He has been great with our young child before, during, and after surgerical procedure, as well as during routine visits. He kept us in well informed during our daughter's surgery and was so gentle with her. We would recommend Dr. Tong to any family!
