Camarillo, CA |
Dr. Kong was both uncaring and negligent when I was under his "care". During surgery in his office I felt Extreme pain , but I could not say anything! It was a nightmare! Afterward , I developed a post op infection, and terrible pain in the tissue and bone of my ankle and leg. At first he apologized, but then became defensive and I had to get treatment from a much better doctor and the3 hospital. The doctor who helped me said"If Dr. Kong and spent as much time treating me, as he did covering hi
