Dr. Arthur Kong has the following 2 specialties

  • Adolescent Medicine

    Adolescent specialists are doctors who have advanced training in the health issues that adolescents face. These physicians deal with issues like the onset of puberty, reproductive health, eating disorders, irregular periods, mood changes, drugs and pressures from home and school. For girls entering adulthood, adolescent specialists can act as both pediatrician and gynecologist, so they only have to see one doctor for all their needs.

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

My daughter has been Dr. Kong's patient since he gave as his business card at Garfield Medical Center after my daughter was born. Despite his short hours (I guessed due to his age) I have found that he is a very capable pediatrician who has provided quality medical care for my daughter and I am satisfied with his service.

His clinic is the worst medical office I have ever been!!!

I took my daughter to his office three times and every time it was a nightmare. The receptionist were extremely rude and obviously not professional at all. It made feel that I am begging for their service. They blamed a pregnant lady just because she was 10 min late and did not call to explain why she was late. The receptionist threatened her that she was not going to receive the treatment due to her showing up late. The doctor is very rude too and I guess his careless manner spoiled the receptionists and they were even ruder. The doctor won't tell you when you need to bring kid for next checking up or immunization unless you ask him. I don't think he is a professional either because he was never able to give effective treatment. It seems to me that he just wanted to send you away as soon as possible.I am wondering how his career can last for over 30 years. I guess people go to his office only for minor problem. Trust me, go as far as possible from him.

He seems allergic to kids

I took my newborn son to him, at that time my son was starting eczema (which he misdiagnosed), and when I asked him questions, he is standing OUTSIDE the door and did not want to touch my son!! And this guy is a Pediatric Doctor!! I say if you have kids STAY AWAY.

Irresponsible and Unprofessional

As a primary care provider, Dr. Kong insisted on that we must give Ritalin to our 9 yr old son but failed to inform us that Ritalin is a Schedule II substance under the Controlled Substances Act, and that Schedule II drugs, which include cocaine and methamphetamine, have a high potential for abuse, which may lead to severe psychological or physical dependence. As a primary care provider, Dr. Kong insisted on that we must give Ritalin to our 9 yr old son but failed to inform us that as parent we have right to take part in all decisions about our child's care and treatment and we have right to refuse any drug, test, procedure or treatment.
