Dr James Ong IS the Doctor you want to go to if you have A Fib! Hands down the BEST! He took an extra 2 hours to make sure he hit every area of my heart that was causing issues with Rhythm, I have complete confidence in Dr Ong and his team at West Hills Hospital was truly amazing! I feel like I have a second chance at life after having a 6 hour ablation. Dr Ong takes the time to explain and answers your questions in a manner that is comforting and concise. I highly recommend Dr Ong. CA IN WH

He cured me of my permanent afib. His years of expertise in the field made me decide to finally have an ablation even though I am asymptomatic. Been afib free for almost 3 weeks after my ablation and that is a feat by itself for someone who has permanent afib for the past 6 years. I can't thank him enough for working his wonders on me. May he be blessed with long life so that he can help more people.
