Dr. Lee-Kong and his team saved my life. After failing surgeries at another hospital, Dr. Lee-Kong accepted my case, I've been improving each day. He is a wonderfully talented surgeon with a great bedside manner. I truly love and respect Dr. Lee-Kong.

I would not recommend Dr Lee Kong based on having two consecutive surgeries due to not doing an HRA when one was needed, not knowing the necessity to prescribe antibiotics prior to surgery when it was clinically justified; prescribing pain killers which caused traumatic impactation and urgent intervention provided by a different surgeon, who saw into his blatant incompetence; and to top it all due to his recommending oncological treatment when it was unjustified.

The best of the best. I had a complicated issue and Dr. Lee-Kong was able to schedule surgery very quickly. He is calm, experienced, and expert at what he does. He made a stressful time better for me and my family.

Dr Lee-Kong is an expert in his field. I felt completely comfortable under his care and my surgery went great. I had to have a colon resection due to severe diverticulitis. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing to have colon or rectal surgery.

Surgery is scary. I had to have a colon resection due to severe diverticulitis. I consulted with Dr. Stephen Lee-Kong after finding him on this site. Dr. Lee-Kong is a consummate expert. I had a three-day hospital stay and four minor incisions, three no longer than one inch in length and one three inches. I was back to work in two weeks. Dr. Lee-Kong and his staff were always available to answer my questions. Dr. Lee-Kong is extremely approachable and friendly.
