Patient Comments (2)
Chicago, IL |
Dr. Tjong was very thorough and patient in communicating with me from my first visit all the way through my post-op visits. The surgery she performed went well, too. I felt well cared for with Dr. Tjong as my surgeon.
Chicago, IL |
When I see a specialist, I assume two things: that the doctor will 1) provide clarity about my health problem, and 2) make treatment recommendations based on her expertise. Dr. Tjong made no diagnosis about my knee problem, and said treatment was really "up to me." "You could get an MRI," but "you could try PT instead." I tried PT for a month. It didn't help. An MRI finally revealed a torn meniscus. Could have been treating the actual problem all along if she had been more precise & professional
