Patient Reviews

August 27, 2021
The office staff where I signed in was very condescending,and did not want to allow me to go into the room with both my children, when we were in a PD pediatricians office. So I thought that was very odd, that they made a big deal about me going to the room with both my daughters. And when I was trying to explain to the nurse the situation, and how they're twins, and how they've always gone in at the same time. She just looked at me like I was crazy and just kept nodding her head like there. She was just like in a way mocking me, and I do not appreciate it at all, and I did not get her name, but I just felt it was very rude, and I will probably start going to the Wodingham office now.

Dr. Kong and her staff are awesome!
August 20, 2021
I wish there was a way I could email the doctor. I had to speak with 2-3 different people before speaking to doctor. Very repetitive. Everyone was very friendly and helpful but it's exhausting.

Dr. Kong is an amazing pediatrician. She takes her time on every single patient. My daughter's seen her since she was born, and she's just a wonderful Dr.

Dr. Kong is approachable, attentive, and she did not make us feel rushed during our visit. She is detailed and provided my child and myself with knowledge and guidance to help improve my child's health.The office staff made us feel welcomed and there was no wait time in the lobby area. We were given a private room within 2 minutes of our arrival. I would recommend Dr. Kong and the La Miranda office to any parent looking for specialized care for their child.

This is my daughter's first visit with Dr. Kong, she read the detailed notes and was aware of her medical history and her issues and made sure to address them and made sure to... was concerned about each of the history medical diagnosis that she's had in the past and how it was going to be effective... affected with the virus or what the illness is that she had at the time. I was very impressed, she was very thorough and I really enjoyed her.

Dr.Kong is a very good doctor my daughter felt very comfortable. My daughter usually is scared of doctor check ups but with D.Kong she was cooperative. Which I felt very relieved.

Dr. Bo Kong has always been great with my child. She always does the best to make her comfortable during her visit, even if it means checking her stuffed animal as well. Thank you for always providing the best care!

Amazing care. Our son always leaves a visit happy and as a parent I always leave knowing that we received the best care for him. Thank you Bo Kong for always helping us understand our childs ADHD.

We were seen in a timely matter. The doctor let us vent and explain all our concerns. She was very kind and listened attentively. She provided feedback and guidance and reassurance. We're glad we chose her as our child's doctor.

Great pediatrician!
March 24, 2021
Dr. Kong is always so warm and cari g with our children. She is also very accommodating with our schedule.
March 04, 2021
The overall experience wasn't too bad. However, I really wish the doctor would have opened up time to answer questions. I had made a list of concerns to talk to the doctor about, simply so that I won't forget, but I didn't get to ask a single question because the doctor wouldn't give me time to do so. Dr Kong was nice, yes, but it would be really nice if she would listen to her patients more carefully and have patients ask questions. Maybe I will try a different pediatrician at PIH, but I am very hesitant to go back to Dr Kong, especially since I have many questions as a first time mom.
February 26, 2021
We really like doctor booked on she's very patient and tells of everything that we need to know she explained everything very thoroughly. Spend ample time with us so we really love and appreciate her a lot.

We were there for an urgent care visit. The provider was very informative and gave me great tips for my child. Very caring as well
February 16, 2021
We've had a really good experience with JH Pediatrics. Especially with Dr. Kong. She's been really great and since we've moved we really, really miss her. But she's a fantastic doctor.
February 10, 2021
Dr. Kong is an amazing pediatrician. My children have had a couple outside of PIH and no one compares to her. She is so thorough and genuinely cares about my kids. She will even contact me after hours and/or on her days outside of the office. I can't speak any higher of her. She is an asset to PIH
February 08, 2021
Dr. Kong is the best! My favorite pediatrician so far. I recommend her to all my friends and coworkers.
February 05, 2021
This was our first visit and it was a great experience so far; definitely a plus after having bad experiences with our previous provider. I hope to have many more pleasant experiences in the future.

Dr. Kong is an amazing doctor. She listened to all of my concerns and questions and has a great bed side manner with patients very well with babies, especially and a great overall provider.
January 27, 2021
As always, Dr. Kong provided stellar care. She listens carefully to all concerns, and addresses them in a way that we are able to understand. She truly shows compassion for her patients, and even asks how the patients siblings are doing. Even though PIH isn't exactly local for our family, we refuse to switch to a closer medical group because of Dr. Kong!
January 27, 2021

Very happy to have Dr. Bo Kong as my child's pediatrician. I actually received an appointment with her for an urgent care visit and had never seen her before then. I was hesitant since I usually prefer to see my regular pediatrician, but she was so kind and caring that we switched over all of our kids to have her as their primary doctor.

The Doctor was AMAZING. Truly such a genuine, caring, and lovely doctor. She was so patient with my daughter (even though she is a handful) I have never received such amazing service; I'm so impressed and happy!

Dr Kong is the only reason I continue to go to PIH.
October 15, 2020
Dr. Kong is without a doubt the best doctor my family has ever had. She is caring, compassionate and empathetic. She explains things in a way that are very easy to understand, and ensures that all questions are answered and understood before the appointment ends. She never appears rushed, though I'm sure she has other patients to see, tasks to complete, etc. Even when there were concerns with our child's labs after a routine appointment, she called and explained the results and what treatment options there were. We felt she teamed with us on creating a plan we were comfortable with, without just telling us what was going to happen. We have already referred our friends and family to Dr. Kong, and will continue to do so!
