Dr. Chong was pleasant as long as I wasn't questioning her work, which was awful. Then she was condensing and dismissive. She redid the first surgery "for only the cost of the sutures" after I questioned why I had to pay for the surgery room which is in her facility. After the second surgery, she "graciously" gave me steroid shots to soften the tissue around the bottom of my ear lobe. When I expressed my dissatisfaction, she asked me what more I wanted, after all she was "giving me her time"

Dr. Chong is #1 by far, the best I've encountered. Her attention to detail and follow-up care she provides is exemplary. She is professional, honest and encourages patient input. Her team is amazing; they reflect her sense of style & dedication. I can highly recommend Dr Chong to anyone considering x-plantation. She did a fantastic job, I couldn't be happier!

Dr Chong is amazing. She takes her time with you to find out your needs and her approach is conservative and you look absolutely sexy and a better you. Not to mention her staff is hands down the best I've come across. They work as a team and make you feel you are their highest priority. I would never think of going elsewhere.
