I found Dr. Kontos from going to an Open House he and other doctor's held. At first, 2 years ago, he seemed to be a caring, knowledgeable doctor. Two weeks ago, I had a Echo done in his office which lasted 1 1/2 hours, the longest I have ever had. It has been 2 weeks and 2 promises from him, via his nurse, that I would know the results. Made the 3rd call today, no results. Do not EVER go this MAN if you value your heart and life. Mary Romer Myrtle Beach, SC

I was a new patient of Dr Kontos, transferring from a Cardiologist in NY State. The office was pleasant and the office people were friendly and helpful. I didn't have to wait for my appointment, as I was called just when my appointment was stated. The Nurse was great along with Dr Kontos. He made me feel comfortable and relaxed. Great service.
