I have been a patient of Dr Kongara for over a year. He is very professional and nice. I rarely have to wait more than ten minutes past my appointment time, and it is not uncommon for him to see me early. The only two concerns I have are his staff and the lack of e-scripts. I have had to return written scripts three times in the last year due to being rejected by the pharmacy for various errors. His staff also will not call a pharmacy or insurance company if requested.
I gave this place one star.. Altho I did not actually meet Mr.Kongara I met with Lisa Chavis the nurse practitioner and she was horrible!! She was rude, didnt listen at all, and tried to prescribe me meds that were way strong and did not meet my needs at all! I am only thankful that I was smart anought to google the meds before I continue to take them after only a day or so. Tho I wish I would have sooner.
