I have a huge amount of trust in this doctor and her entire group which specializes in my hearts electrocial system. I am a stubborn case. She listens, she adjusts, she does not talk down to you. She knows her area and changes treatments as she works with you. Kind. Uses all the resources and for my ablation procedures, shares the spotlight with one of her associates. I have had two, unsuccessful, because my heart rebuilt the pathways quickly. Another aborted, and one to come again. Trust

When I first contracted "A-Fib", I was fearful of what might happen to my overall physical condition. Having something go wrong with my heart was very unnerving. My husbands Cardiologist, Gisela Okonsky, assured me that "A-Fib" was treatable and living and working on a Cattle Ranch would not be compromised. After three cardioversion's, it was recommended that I go to see Dr. Kong. We did and were impressed with the professionalism, courtesy and compassion shown by Dr. Kong and her staff.
