"Love Dr. Chong!"

"Dr. Chong is the reason I am alive! I owe my life to him. To anyone looking for the best neurological care, this is the only doctor I will recommend. He will answer your emergency questions and make sure your overall health is taken care of."

"Dr. Chong has been amazing! He is not the first neurologist (doctor) I have seen but he has been the most caring and the one who has made me feel more confident in my treatment."

"the doctor answered a phone call in the middle of my appointment (after waiting over an hour past my appointment time to see him). I understand things come up, so I was totally fine with him taking a quick call, but I was sitting there in silence afterwards while he was texting back and forth for a minute or so ... just felt like my needs weren't important."
