Torrance, CA |
This group, Torrance Mem Phy Network, is one of the most poorly operated practices I have ever seen. Dr. Tong seems over worked and frustrated which does not make for a caring dr.
Los Angeles, CA |
I found Dr Tong to be professional and personable, as well as, well versed on the latest medical research and procedures. He took time to explain the various treatment options and why he recommended specific items.

Doesn't spend a lot of time, but is always at least 20 minutes behind. Seems to like to include extra tests or x-rays. Requires office visits every 6 months or he'll hold you prescriptions hostage.

Wait time was average and bedside manners were great. I brought my 2 kids with me (3 and 5... had no other choice) and he was very friendly with them. Doctors always seem rushed to me. Dr. Tong was just like other practitioners in this aspect, but a little more personable/friendly. This review is for a couple visits back in Sep. 2015.
Los Angeles, CA |
Was looking for another Dr. at this facility because the other GP I had was pretty poor. This individual seemed to have very little patience. Terrible attitude, took very little time with you. Would recommend steering away from this guy unless you are just trying to get something quickly looked at. Would not recommend as a regular GP. Waste of time.
