Background Information 
Professional profile:

Dr Chantal Kong is strongly committed to providing a high quality clinical service to her patients and GP colleagues whilst maintaining a high standard of professionalism.

She is an experienced clinician with a strong broad-based training in all aspects of general medical conditions, subspecialising in diabetes and endocrinology. After qualifying at the University of Leeds, she undertook her junior medical rotation in the Midlands before moving to London, and spent a large part of her senior training at St Mary’s Hospital, Imperial College as part of the North Thames specialty rotation. She was subsequently appointed as Consultant Physician/Endocrinologist at West Hertfordshire Hospitals NHS trust in February 2003.

Her specialty practice covers all aspects of general endocrinology including the diagnostic work-up, investigation and management of thyroid, parathyroid, pituitary and adrenal disorders, polycystic ovarian syndrome, various metabolic disturbances including diabetes, dyslipidaemia and electrolyte imbalances.

Personal profile:

As many other working parents, keeping a healthy work-life balance is not always easy, especially with the upbringing of two young teenagers. However, Dr Kong has found that it can bring back other leisure opportunities which she thought were long gone as her children are growing up.

She is a keen screen viewer and also enjoys watching musical performances and theatre. She also likes to keep fit and enjoys athletics such as running, aerobics, and swimming. She is a very good badminton player and has recently taken up golf.
