Dr. Chong provided care for me for five days during a stay at Lennox Hill hospital after contracting a virus that led to Encephalitis. During a traumatic and scary experience, he provided superb treatment and genuinely cared about my well being. Not only that, he's personable any d easy to follow.

In response to Milagros Perez; I agree that Northwell has definitely been different from NYU. But it has to do with the hospital and the staff, not the doctor. I personally felt the difference and the first appointments were not the smoothest. But Dr. Chong continues to be the best neurologist out there. A few people who contacted Neurology said the staff was not friendly, so hopefully that will get better. But Dr. Chong is so caring, brilliant, and gives you all his attention.

I was a patient of Dr. Chong since he was at NYU. After moving to Lenox Hill, it's now horrible. His staff does not follow through. All I need is an MRI since May 25th. Now I'm stuck with terrible headaches and dizziness, affecting my eye sight. He does not return any of my calls. The Dr. Chong I knew cared much more and returned all your calls. At this point, I don't know if he is getting my messages but my eye surgeon personally called him and yet still no contact from Dr. Chong. DISAPPOINTED!

A True Life Saver. Dr.Chong met our college age daughter in 2011 after numerous assorted specialists diagnosed mental illness and threw their hands up. Knowing it was not psychiatric, Dr. Chong agreed After miraculously finding Dr Chong, and upon our subsequent first visit and exam he confidently stated, and I quote We will fix your daughter, this is the place you want to be. His true compassion, understanding, educated and personal concern, thoroughness and drive saved our child.
