    i would like to thank the admin team for arranging an appointment on very short notice when I was experiencing a great deal of discomfort in my eyes. They were extremely kind and supportive. Dr. Tong was, as well, comforting and thorough in her examination, reassuring me that my eye issue was treatable and could be controlled. She also arranged for a very timely follow-up appointment.

    Worst doctor ever. Does not listen to patient concerns and continued to prescribe ineffective eyedrops that led to severe side effects. She did not listen to us when we told her that the eyedrops caused allergic reactions, and instead said wash your eyes with hot water. She is constantly “too busy” to see you and will not take the time to understand your needs. Don’t go here.

    She is the worst doctor I've been to. Doesn't look at the patients when talking to them, shows annoyance and impatience when asked questions, long wait (3 hours) at the clinic. I would not recommend her to anyone. When asked about if the condition requires surgery, her response was "it depends on how you feel if you need it". What kind of professional advice is that!?
