Technically proficient, poor bedside manner, hernia surgery lasted three hours total. No difficulties. No post operative follow up from surgeon. Insurance was billed $25,000!

I recently had surgery performed by Dr. Chong. I found him to be a great listener, very caring, and excellent when it came to his stiching. My scar is practically non-existent. Surgery went very well. I would definitely use him again if needed. I am very happy with his knowledge and skill.
