North Olmsted, OH |
This doctor was down to earth. He was quick but relayed all information and followed through with my questions and concerns.

Great doc. Referred by dr Thomas. Spent time and called day after surgery to personally check on me. Would highly recommend.

I appreciated Dr Kontak's efficiency. Got me in within a day of problem coming up and had treated within a week. Thanks!
North Olmsted, OH |
This doctor was recomend by the ER attending at St. Johns. I found the staff friendly, caring and helpful. Dr. Kontak was/is knowledgeable, compassionate and explained all options (suggested a second opinion) a explained all procedures and surgeries. I am still undergoing canicer care and would not consider any other provider.

I was seeing him for a year for kidney stones worst doc ever he did lythotripsy and put a Stent in the most painful experience of my life I had this thing in for a week I was in so much pain and he let me suffer through it when I asked for pain meds he said no dosnt care about his patients
in Lakewood, Ohio |
Incompetent, arrogant and thoughtless. He did not explain or even mention the surgery options and post surgery recovery. Dr. Kontak did not follow up after surgery. The incompetence of this doctor started couple of years ago when he diagnosed the patient as not needing the prostate surgery meanwhile the enlarged prostate got worse. I would not recommend this doctor to anyone.
