Patient Comments (6)

The staff is unacceptable and unprofessional.They are the rudest of all the nurses. If they can't handle the pressure of being a nurse then get a new job.Cancer patients don't have time to deal with this crap.Appt time changed and was told to wait.3 hours later and pass the appt time and still...more

Not only was everyone friendly and professional, but they had so much patience with my other Dr's office that had no urgency sending my records over. Dr nguyen was very clear about everything and ensured that I understood everything even if it meant reexplaining.

Excellent dr. - I could see his frustration with me when I wouldn't follow instructions - I am no longer on Coumadin and now on Xarelto and I think it's improved our relationship :) Excellent, friendly staff from receptionist to the nurses - I love how they are always so cheerful and supportive

Dr Nguyen was very patient and understanding with my mom's anemia issues. His staff is so nice and definitely have the patient's best interest at heart. I recommend Dr. Nguyen to anyone.

Dr. Nguyen carefully went over the results ensuring that I have a layman's grasp of what the testing uncovered. He is a kind and considerate doctor devoted to his patient's care. I would certainly recommend him!
