What patients say About Dr. Ray Kong

Don't just take our word for it - hear from our patients:

  • william-c.

    I was a smoker for almost 25 years, and I had become used to the high levels of anxiety that my addiction was causing. After trying the patch, the gum, and good old fashion willpower, I was feeling hopeless and trapped. Then I found Dr. Ray! He is very thoughtful and gentle as well as professional and knowledgeable. I was amazed at how quickly I felt the effects of the acupuncture treatments. I immediately felt more relaxed and balanced, and over just a few treatments my desire and need to smoke seemed to naturally disappear as my stress level came down. I am happy to report that I am now a non-smoker! I continue to see Dr. Ray for any aches or pains and for preventative medicine, because I know it works (and it really doesn't hurt at all)!

  • betsy-d

    Through my sessions of acupuncture with Dr. Ray Kong, I have experienced health benefits way beyond my expectations. I was experiencing difficulty sleeping, waking up feeling tired and lethargic, with puffy eyes, worsening menstrual symptoms, and a general feeling of malaise. I changed my diet to vegetarian, exercised, and sought to decrease stress in my daily life, and yet, I still wasn't really feeling well. I increased exercise, only to find that my energy levels declined to an all-time low. I then met Dr. Kong and began to get acupuncture therapy. Since that time I have had the first PMS free cycle I have had in 20 years, my eyes are not puffy, the malaise is mostly gone, I am exercising again.

  • lisa-c

    After a fall three years ago, my doctors found signs of multiple sclerosis. Dr. Ray Kong has been treating me for that as well as my back and leg pain and weakness. Today I feel strong and stable, and I look forward to my future with enthusiasm and confidence. The acupuncture has also helped me better deal with stress and anxiety. I highly recommend Dr. Ray to anyone seeking help. I am certain you will find the relief you seek, because I certainly have!

  • gina-p

    I have suffered with rheumatoid arthritis, chronic fatigue, and fibromyalgia for over three years. Over that time I've been on a variety of medications to try to help control my condition, none of which have been very successful. I started acupuncture treatments with Dr. Ray and the healing of my joints was gradual, a process I didn't even realize was happening until it had come. By about the third week, I started to notice I felt lighter, my back didn't act up as much, my elbows straightened out a bit more. Not only did my joints begin to improve, but I felt more clear headed, and more at ease. Dr. Ray Kong has given me back my life, both physically and spiritually. Steve is the best. I would highly recommend Dr. Kong to anyone considering acupuncture or chinese medicine, for his peaceful manner, his professionalism, and his consistent results.

  • hope-t

    I have suffered with Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome for over 4 years, with that comes weight gain, insulin resistance, and painful periods. The medication to help with the insulin resistance made me very sick. I saw a nutritionist and even though I followed the program, I was gaining more weight and feeling bad about myself. I figured I had nothing to lose by trying Acupuncture, and I felt a difference after the first visit with Dr. Ray. At his urging I changed my eating habits and took the herbs he recommended. Within 3 visits I noticed my clothes started to fit me differently. I am happy to say that after seeing Dr. Ray one time a week for about 3 months I have dropped 2 pants sizes, I don't have hunger mood swings and I do not suffer from as many headaches. I would highly recommend seeing Dr. Ray Kong - my dad was so impressed with my results that he has also started seeing Ray for his ailments!

  • denise-b

    For the past several years I have suffered with carpal tunnel syndrome. The only option offered to me from my primary care physician was surgery which I didn't want to have. (I have had Type I diabetes for 56 years and surgery is not something I want at this time of my life.) A friend suggested that I try acupuncture with Dr. Kong, so I made an appointment. Ray is a very knowledgeable person and it is a great pleasure to work with him. After just a few treatments, I noticed that my condition had improved immensely. I haven't had any numbness or nighttime pain for several months. I highly recommend Dr. Ray Kong and his treatments - they really work!

  • steve-s

    I've been treated by Dr. Ray Kong for chronic bursitis, diabetes, depression and various other aches and pains for several years. Many times I've walked into his clinic near tears, but I always leave pain-free and with a smile on my face. Dr. Ray takes time to listen and always ensures that the area being treated feels better. Thanks Dr. Ray! YES YES!

  • vm

    I've been a patient of Dr. Ray (Rui) Kong for several months. He is professional, knowledgeable, and effective. I like to ask questions and be informed; Dr. Kong is always willing to share his knowledge and explain his methods. His office is comfortable, scheduling is flexible, and prices are reasonable. If you're looking for an experienced, licensed, and nationally certified acupuncturist in Southeast Michigan; I highly recommend Dr. Rui Kong.

  • author-22

    I am a runner and was experiencing some significant knee pain and had already ruled out surgery of any kind. Dr. Kong was an excellent choice for me. He is not only incredibly knowledgeable, but gentle and caring. My knees feel better than they have in years and his treatment for stress reduction has also greatly increased my overall energy. His treatments for the immune system I'm sure, helped keep me very healthy throughout the winter. Even though it's about two hour's drive, I intend to continue to see Dr. Kong on a regular basis. I have long been a believer in acupuncture, and his care and treatment have only confirmed my belief.

  • michael-p

    I had not had acupuncture before, but was impressed with Dr. Kong's credentials and expertise and decided to give it try. I have no serious health problems, but was having some neck pain and foot pain as a result of athletic activities. After two months of twice weekly treatments with Dr. Kong, those pains are totally gone and the special stress and even sinus treatments his performed enable me to breathe better and function with much more energy. I would recommend Dr. Kong to anyone wishing to improve overall health and wellness.
