I really appreciate how Dr. Bo Kong called me over the weekend to give me the results of my daughter's urine analysis that was incredibly thoughtful and considerate. And she went above and beyond so fantastic. Thank you.

We had a long wait due to getting bumped by someone with a much later appointment. It would be nice if the schedule adhered to the appointment times in future so we do not have to wait longer because another patient arrived an hour ahead of schedule.

I really appreciated the fact that I could get a same day appointment. There was availability in-person, but there was also availability virtually. And so for me, it's really important that if my child is 6 that I can get it as soon as possible with one of the providers at that location because that is my home location. So I also appreciate the fact that the physician called me back with my results of my daughter's results and provided a very thorough explanation and really took the time to listen to my concerns. So I think the care was excellent.

Dr. Kong is amazing. She's patient, very knowledgeable, and takes her time with all her patients. I have my daughter and my son who see her. And she's amazing. Always provides you with the answers that you need. And if she needs to check on something, she definitely will call you back with the answer. Bo Kong is amazing.

This was nothing to do with Dr Kong. But it was EXTREMELY hard to hear her, even with me putting my volume all the way up. I could hear a pin drop louder than her. The audio was so low on doxy me I had to have my phone next to my ear. So Dr Kong had a good shot of my ear a good part of the appt.

Dr. KONG was great, my son had an appointment with her as his primary did not have anything available in the time-frame that we needed. But I feel comfortable going to her again in the future.

I love Dr Kong. She is so friendly with the kids and explains things sooo well. Easy for kids to understand. The office staff is always friendly and helpful. My only issue I have is the entering the room to give vaccines with gloves already on. No show of washing/alcohol rub of hands. Gross. Don't know where the gloves were before. This visit, I think her name was [name removed] she came in without the gloves on but did not wash or alcohol rub her hands prior to putting gloves on to give a shot.

Everything with the Doctor and staff went very well. My only complaint is trying to get the results of the visit and the folowing Covid test was difficult. The Cisco service being used to transmit results is difficult to navigate. Only on my 5th attempt to access the results did the site allow me to see the pdf file...which was simply a scan of the two pages the doctor's office printed out. This could have been just as easily sent directly to me instead of wasting an hour on third party software that i cant access 4 out of 5 times.
