Patient Comments (1)
in Adin, CA. |
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.
