Overview

My patients call me Dr. Tong but if you really want to impress me, you can try to pronounce my first name, My-Diem (phonetically, it is pronounced Mee-Yiem). I'm proud to be a physician with Kaiser Permanente working in the specialty of cardiology at the Riverside campus. Biography My family immigrated to America when I was 4 years old, near the end of the Vietnam War. I spent my childhood in Pennsylvania and completed high school and the remainder of my education in Southern California. My parents imparted strong values, including the need for education. I have always excelled in science, and it felt natural to me to pursue a career in medicine. I met my husband in medical school and now we have three beautiful children. About my practice I am a heart specialist, but my philosophy of practice is to consider your total health and well- being. In the increasingly complex and technical world of cardiology, my role is to diagnose, consult, and guide patients through choices and treatment plans. I encourage my patients to discuss all their concerns with me. We are partners in good health, but only with your total participation can we achieve the best results. How I thrive My philosophy of life centers on balance. I have to balance my career and my family. It gives me great satisfaction to be able to provide excellent service and care to my patients at Kaiser Permanente. But I also thrive by taking care of my three young children and watching them grow and develop. Their youthfulness and energy keeps me refreshed.
