Specialties

Dr. Ji Y Chong has the following 3 specialties

  • Vascular Neurology
  • Neurology

    A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
    Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
    In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
    Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

Although only one meeting so far, she has helped oversee the tests required for my condition. Initial meeting was quite pleasant and she showed great interest in my concerns and asked questions as well as answered mine. The billing system was my only concern as the person who managed my account said my insurance was not accepted, even after confirming with Dr. Chong's office and my insurer. Took a few months to figure out. Everything else was good.

Excellent stroke neurologist

Scary seeing a neurologist, but Dr. Chong was very re-assuring, carefully reviewed my history, and gave me a thorough exam. I am thrilled to have found a neurologist that is accessible, intelligent, and truly cares about her patients' well-being. Although sometimes difficult to get an appointment, Dr. Chong was well worth the wait. She definitely is up-to-date on all the latest research, and would recommend her to anyone that has stroke-related issues.

One Couldn't Ask for a Better Doctor

If all doctors were as good as Ji Y. Chong, MD, no one would be mad at the healthcare system! Dr. Chong read everything I emailed her prior to my appointment (yes email!!), and spend 45 minutes with me carefully reviewing my history and prognosis. She taught me about my condition, and studies about it. She is thorough, smart, caring, and accessible. What more could a patient ask for?
