About Dr. Jimmy J Ong MD
Dr. Jimmy J Ong has the following 2 specialties
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.
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.

Self-verified patient of Dr. Jimmy J Ong - Posted on February 9th, 2018
I was at his office for a Meningioma. I was trying to explain my symptoms and what was going on with me. He told me my tumor was to small to even be causing headaches. He continued by telling me that the meds I am taking for my headache was causing my headache. Funny for I don't take much NASID due to stomach issues. He would not listen to me as I tried to explain what I do to treat my symptoms. I am not sure how you can do a complete new patient exam in under 30 mins. if you like being in and out quick and if you like someone to tell you how you feel this doc is for you. Holly office lady is very nice.

My only complaint was I had a procedure done and the office staff did not forward the results to my doctor - so whe I arrived at my doctors apointment later in the week, I had to sit and wait for an hour while they had the records sent over. They had previously assured me the records would be sent but never were. It was a frustrating waste of my time.
