Dr. Kong is fantastic. The staff helped me get in very quickly and arranged appointments with two other physicians. She listens, answered my many questions, is up to date with State and procedures, and gave me options. Dr. Kong gave me confidence in her skills and hope for my best outcome. I was there for a second opinion and as a physician decided that she and the other physicians she recommended be on the team are the ones I trust to care for me!

We were very impressed with Dr. Amanda Kong. She is very knowledgeable and explained options and concerns extremely well, with illustrations that were very helpful.

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!!!
Oct. 8, 2019
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
Oct. 1, 2019
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.
