Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

I had a telehealth visit and felt that it was very thorough. I am currently awaiting the results of a genetic screen for further information, but do have a preliminary answer. The process has been a positive one for me.

I met with Dr. Fong today and had a great experience. My wait time was less than one minute in the waiting room, and less than three minutes in the exam room. The first part of my appointment was screening/health history questions and that was done by someone else. When Dr. Fong came in he explained my diagnosis and spent a lot of time discussing it with me, even going a bit beyond 5pm when they closed. He was thorough, courteous, and kind. I’m honestly surprised by the negative reviews.

Saw him yesterday after scheduling an appointment literally a year ago. Didn't seem to have read any of the background information from our referring doctor or any of the anecdotal information provided. Talked about genetics in general, didn't think we had an issue with what our referring doctor. feels it is, and did not seem to really take any of it seriously. Very disappointed, frustrated, dejected. Similar to every other doctor I have met with associated with Strong. If you don't fit inside the box we can't help you and/or don't believe you. Sure wish there were more options around here.

I met with Dr. Fong a few months ago. We waited for quite a while in the waiting room. It seemed he was more interested in flirting with his female colleagues than helping us. He seemed very knowledgeable, but not that interested in helping us.
