My philosophy centers on the fact that every breast cancer patient is a unique individual who deserves a personalized multi-disciplinary approach for optimal treatment. I offer a patient care program that uses the most current techniques and treatments to work in the best interest of the patient and his/her comfort level. Attention to patient care is of critical interest to me during all phases of treatment to ensure a positive outcome.

Dr Kong and the Froedtert team were absolutely wonderful! From my first call requesting a second opinion through my appointment and scheduling future visits I knew I had made the right decision. Dr Kong's confidence , incredible knowledge, and ability to explain medial details to my husband and me, and her kindness made us know we were with the right provider! I will be referring my friends to Froedtert and Dr Kong if needed!!!!

Dr. Kong always gives clear information in the most caring and compassionate way. And she LISTENS rather than just hearing. All of this while making you feel like you are her only patient. You are blessed to have her.

Dr. Kong and her resident noticed my blood pressure was elevated and out of rhythm. She advised I go to ER. Her staff brought me to ER (wheelchair). I was treated in ER and luckily released. The concern of Dr. Kong and her staff were amazing!!!

dr. Kong was highly articulate and explained to me my disease. She took out time to diagram and explain the function of the breast cancer I have. She familiarize me with up-to-date studies and treatments. I have experience from gynecological oncology, let me assure you the breast care clinic is another universe. They are so amazing, it is totally new to me. Gynecological oncology should look at the model that the breast Cancer Center is using. The morale and the patient staff interaction is amazingly positive in the breast care clinic. I am very grateful for the extremely positive manner in which the center is performing.

compassion. active listening. expertise

I am high risk for breast cancer and knew I had some difficult decisions to make. I repeatedly asked Dr Kong what she would do in my situation or if I was her sister, what would she recommend, but she would not provide any feedback that would help me make a clear decision. Had she been willing to weigh in, I would not have had to go through the emotional turmoil of wondering if I was making the right decision. In the end, I visited the primary care Dr I had for over a decade to seek his input. I cried when he said I was definitely doing the right thing. It would have been horrible if I had to go through the planned surgery without the assurance that I wasn't doing something I'd regret later.

Dr. Kong and her staff were all very personable, caring and knowledgeable. I could tell right away that the Dr. came prepared on my case and is very knowledgeable and experienced in it. She spent extensive time with me and my family to explain my breast cancer in detail as well as how to best treat it. She and her staff quickly organized the additional appointments and testing I needed to keep my treatment moving. She quickly and personally communicated my test results to me. Me and my family left the clinic feeling confident that we are in good hands. Thank you Dr. Kong and staff.

Staff at this facility was wonderful, the nurses and support staff were so kind and patient. Helped alleviate some of my anxiety about the unexpected. While I believe Dr. Kong was trying to show me that she was confident that I did not need to worry, she came of as dismissive and seemed someone unsympathetic to what I had been experiencing. I understand that she sees patients who are far more ill than I was, but given the complexity of what I had experienced, I felt that she could have been more sensitive to my circumstances.

Dr. Kong always treats with respect. She will discuss with me all concerns above and beyond the breast surgery. She saw I was having troubles with my lymphedema, and referred me on to PT/OT. She encouraged me to use support stockings for my venous insufficiency/lymphedema, and how she uses them to support her own legs after long days. She is always encouraging and hopeful.

Dr Kong takes time to listen. She gives me a feeling of concern about me as a person who has a medical difficulty. My input is important to her as well. She really understands her work and I know she also is a good collaborator with other physicians. My friend who went with me to my first appointment, said if she needed a breast cancer doctor, she would choose Dr Kong. I agree! I would recommend Dr Kong to anyone.
