6 By-passes by Dr Jonathan Fong

I had 6 bypasses by Dr Jonathan Fong on May 9, 2019. I was deeply blessed when my Primary Care Doctor Timothy Janz recommended Dr. Jonathan Fong and Sarasota Memorial Hospital. I can't speak highly enough of his marvelous technical skills, knowledge, experience and his personal compassion. This man is the kind of Doctor you want. I entrusted my life to him. Placed it in his hands. I would unhesitatingly recommend for anyone else facing heart surgery. I can't say enough good things about the nursing care I received at Sarasota Memorial - Dr and hospital are great.

Quintuple Coronary By-Pass Surgery

Am deeply fortunate my wonderful cardiologist placed my life into the hands of Dr. Jonathan Fong. Can't speak highly enough of his marvelous technical skills, knowledge, experience and his compassion. My retired O.R./labor and delivery nurse-wife often says, ' you want to know who the really 'good ones' are? Listen to what you hear floating around other hospital departments and the nurses 'in the trenches.' This man is Top Shelf. I entrusted my life to him. Placed it in his hands. As I would unhesitatingly recommend for anyone else facing this. Can't say enough good things about the nursing care I received, and the way Sarasota Memorial is run.

The best

We came in on an emergency, visiting from another state. Dr Fong is a wonderful and caring physician. He saved my husband's life. I am ever grateful for his kindness and care.

An excellent cardiac surgeon...the very best.

It was a year on Valentine’s Day since Dr Fong performed my bypass redo surgery. I am doing amazingly well! I am fortunate to have a wife who loves to cook delicious, but heart healthy meals. I run/walk every morning before breakfast for 30 minutes. I jog 400 paces to get my heart rate up, next walk briskly for 200 paces, and then alternate running and walking for the remainder of the half hour. I try not to take any days off at all. The best part, of course, is I am able to do all this, at age 73, without the scourge of detestable angina. It seems that my arteries are working well and I am determined to keep them that way. Clearly, diet and exercise play key roles in ensuring this. I am pleased that Dr. Fong decided to pursue cardiac surgery rather than architecture or the cello. Beautiful buildings and melodic airs are best left to someone else. I believe that his intense concentration and his ability to ferret out every detail of my condition left nothing to chance. He spent a considerable amount of time with my wife and me, describing this frightening procedure that was looming over me, in minute detail, answering all the questions that we needed to ask. There is significant fear and anxiety associated with impending heart bypass surgery, but we both left his office wholly confident that I was in very good hands. I am delighted to report such good results a year after the fact. Expect to hear from me again a year from now…with any luck, all good news.

Five Stars

Three months after having open heart surgery, I feel the best that I have felt in a year. Dr. Fong was a great doctor. I thank him for helping to get me strong again. Everyone at the Venice Ocala Heart Institute is great. Thank you.
