Dr. Nguyen was thorough and explained everything in a way I would understand well. He addressed all my questions and concerns. His assistant Louie was also one of the friendliest nurses I've ever had.

Dr. Nguyen and the staff in the office are fantastic! I was treated so well and they were personable. Dr. Nguyen had taken the time to know my medical history before I arrived. He gave me some hope without sugarcoating the potential procedure and risks. I feel blessed to have been referred to Dr Nguyen.
