Dr. Kontos was very thorough with my exam. I felt like he treated me the way he would treat someone in his own family.
Thank you for the positive feedback! We appreciate the kind words.

Dr. Kontos is an outstanding physician! However, the office staff is terrible when asked to return a call or use the physician's portal to communicate with a patient. This is a real shame because I can not say enough good things about my relationship with Dr. Kontos.
We are sorry to hear this and truly value your feedback. Patient experience is important to us at Grand Strand Heart and Vascular Care, so we will make every effort to address any concerns you may have. Your comments have been shared with Sallie, our Practice Manager. If you would like to speak with someone about this experience, please call 843-497-7772.

My experience with Dr. Kontos and staff was very good right from the start with the Heart Catherization and the installation of the Stents.

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.
