In April of 2019 I was assigned Dr Fong for bypass and AVR surgery. There is good reason Dr. Fong has such great reviews. I trust Dr Fong as he exhibits strong traits of honor, integrity, and compassion. If I had to go through the very painful experience again, I would feel that another surgeon would fail to provide the total package of medical treatment that I received from Dr Fong. God Bless Dr Fong.

It has been six monhs since undergoing surgery by Dr Fong. The experience was the most professional and rewarding experiences I have ever had. Dr Fong is a very through, understanding physician and most of all caring. After six bypasses I was up walking the next day, home in four and driving in three weeks. After cardiac rehab at SMH I feel great, am returning to teaching and enjoying life. My highest compliments and appreciation to Dr Fong.

If you are reading these reviews, you are probably searching for a cardio surgeon. Now, please, stop your effort - you've found the best. Simply cannot go better. Not enough words to express my level of gratitude for everything Dr. Fong did for me on the very short notice - quintuple bypass surgery. His demeanor and bed-side manner is calm, positive, thorough, attentive, flexible, and personal. The Doctor likes to say that Lord is our ultimate surgeon and Doctor just has a hands that make an incision. Maybe he is right.. But Lord choose Dr. Fong' hands for a reason! Without any hesitation I recommend Dr. Fong to anyone in need of cardiac surgery.

Dr. Fong has to be the best Cardiac Surgeon on Sarasota! My 85yr old father just had a 5 bypass and heart valve repair. Dr. Fong was fantastic! His bedside manners are incredible and follow up impeccable. I highly recommend him. I only hope if I have heart problems, he' the doctor on call in an emergency.

Dr Fong is absolutely the very best surgeon in the area. My husband came to him literally dying, turned down by several other surgeons who said nothing could be done for him. DR. Fong took on this very risky and complex case and saved my husband's life. He is a humble man, listens well, and has skills and the confidence to use them. He is honest and up front and makes no grandiose promises. He will give you the unadulterated truth. When all seemed lost, Dr Fong saved my husband's life.

Dr. Fong did everything in his power to give my dad triple heart bypass surgery on the same day as he went to emergency. This was a unexpected surgery! He did everything in his power to get him admitted so he could do this surgery. His communication was fantastic and put my mom's mind at ease during this difficult time. As all of our family resides in NY it was great knowing he was in my dad's corner. Thank you for giving my dad another chance at life. I am grateful. Robert Graus' daughter

Two weeks ago Dr. Fong performed open heart surgery on me to replace my aortic valve and repair my mitral valve. He is an excellent communicator and I fully understood my options and the surgery that we decided on. His manner is friendly and warm. The results have been excellent and I am on the way to recovery and a healthy heart going forward. I would highly recommend Dr. Fong for Cardiac Surgery. I especially liked his caring manner and his frankness in discussing options with me.

After several ablations and shock treatments Dr. Fong thought it best to do the Maze procedure for my afib. Dr. Fong far exceeded my expectations during the entire event. He met with us several times prior to surgery, explained the procedure in depth step by step and we were very impressed with his expertise, skill and professionalism. He and his entire staff were very caring and considerate from our first visit to the post op visit. Feeling great and virtually no pain. Thank you Dr. Fong!!
