What People Say About Dr. Cliffton Bong, MD

Dr Bong treated me for tuberculosis which I was to later find out I never had. He didn’t have me tested in his in house lab although I questioned whether he should. He said it wasn’t necessary. He never followed up when I was taking medication for a disease I never had. He is a very poor doctor expecially where patient welfare is concerned. He did not follow any of the protocol recommended by cdc and state medical officials. He is uncare when his mistakes are recognized.

I was in the hospital when Dr. Bong came to visit me. Never having cellulitis before or really not knowing much about it, he took the time to explain everything to me. I found him very helpful, very kind and very understanding when trying to explain things so I understood. he left the door open if I ever needed to see him again. I really liked him.

He took the time to review my medical history which fill 3 2 thick manila folders. He genuinely cares about me and what I have to say. I would take my Granddaughter to see him
