I have been under the care of Dr. Kong for at least eight years. I find him to spend as much time as needed; he explains things clearly, and I feel very well cared for under his care.

I am blessed to have had Dr. Kong perform an emergency procedure for a blocked LAD in mid June. He communicated with me through the whole procedure to keep me informed and calm. Dr. Kong visited me everyday in the hospital to check on me and answer all of my questions. Dr. Thomas Kong is a professional and compassionate cardiologist.

He is arrogant, cocky and very full of himself. He will not listen and does not like to be questioned in regards to what he wants to do.

DR. Kong was both unprofessional and dangerously negligent, when I was under his "care". While performing surgery on me,in his office, I felt EXTREME pain the entire time, yet could not speak[a nightmarish experience]at one point when I was able to communicate that I was experiencing pain, but he did nothing to help. Afterward I developed a dangerous and very painful Post-OP infection. At first He apologized but later became cold and defensive. I had to go to a much better doctor for help.
