Dr K is wonderful !
I have been seeing Dr Kongara for almost 2 years now - for a serious IBS issue that affected my whole life. When I first met her - she was so helpful, asked me a ton of questions to understand what I was experiencing and worked closely with me to help my quality of life. After a few visits through the pandemic and a colonoscopy in Nov 2020, which came back normal with no issues - she was able to treat my condition with medicine. I feel amazing and no longer stress about my condition, worry about taking long car rides, worry about any accidents I may have - i feel better, i'm more confident and i thank Dr K for working with me and finding a treatment plan. She is amazing and so kind - I would absolutely recommend her to anyone needing a Gastro doctor.

Kind, caring, personable, & extreme knowledgeable!
Dr. Kongara is a special kind of physician. Not only is she highly experienced in her field & well trained, she is a kind & sweet person with a good heart that shows through her work! Her bedside manor is the best I’ve seen or felt from any physician I’ve ever met! She made me extremely comfortable in an uncomfortable situation. She listened to my concerns, examined me with care, & even entertained my “Web MD” self diagnosis findings without judgement. She did not rush my office visit, & even stayed longer to accommodate my appointment. She is a truly a gem, & just a really good human! In all honesty gastroenterology is probably my least favorite type of medical appointment to go to, but with Dr. Kongara as my gastro provider I’m put at ease because I know she will make me feel comfortable.

Dr. Kongara literally changed my life! For over 20 years about 2x a year, I'd get stomach pains so bad that it I couldn't eat, couldn't exercise, struggled at work; basically incapacitated. No dr could figure it out. Kongara was determined. She told me next time it happened, get to the ER and we'll get x-rays. Turns out my appendix would expand but not burst. 20 years. The medical community doesn't recognize chronic appendicitis. Shrug. But this is what was happening. Kongara removed my appendix and I have had ZERO issues since that time. None. Her determination and refusal to give a generic diagnosis changed my life! She's fun, professional and I feel 100% confident in recommending her.

Dr. Kongara is kind, thorough and very knowledgeable. She takes her time with you in conversation and in procedures. She listens closely to what you have to say, take time to explain and address your issues, and makes you feel comfortable even when dealing with issues that are difficult to discuss. I've been to her for several years and my gastro problems are much improved after working with her. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Kongara!

Our digestive systems play a critical role in our overall health and Dr. Kongara has the training and experience to provide the highest level of care. During my first visit with her on July 29, 2021, she clearly was a smart and personable physician who readily identifies with her patients. As a person with her training, skills and professional demeanor, I thoroughly trust her to perform my upcoming procedure.

Dr. Kongara and her staff are awesome. I want to specifically give the best of ratings to Kimberly Orleck, PAC, with Dr. Kongara’s practice. Kim is the most professional, caring and compassionate patient advocate. She is always available and responsive to any concerns I have. She has been involved in my care over the last 5 years and wouldn’t know what to do without her! She always goes above and beyond to ensure that care is coordinated and communicated without a glitch. Kim is incredibly knowledgeable and most importantly approachable and accessible via email and/or the patient portal. I cannot express enough how much I appreciate her as part of my healthcare team. She simply is the very best.

Love that Dr. K actually read my chart before my appointment; It saved so much time not having to tell her my entire health history. Dr. K is kind, direct, and really feels like an ally. She is well-read on current studies, and I appreciated that she made a plan as well as alternatives in case plan A didn't work as we hoped. I finally have some hope that my GI stuff will resolve or improve with her care!
