in Long Beach, CA |
I have been Dr. Nguyen's patient for the last couple of years. When I first started coming to him, I had trouble standing up straight and was in severe pain. I have herniated disc in my back that presses on the nerve root. He is the BEST doctor that I have ever had. He actually listens to his patients and cares. Plus, he has helped alleviate a lot of my pain. I have a chronic condition that will probably never go away, but it is definitely more manageable now. I wish that all of the doctors I ha
El Monte, CA |
Initially, I did not hesitate to make an appointment w this doctor because of the surprisingly many 5 star reviews compared to other non-rated doctors. However, the doctor did not seem to care about his patient's concerns. He answers questions clearly but only seem to care about what he wants to say. His admin staff seems put off in patient's further questions.
good choice of me. Great communication and happy results

Dr. Bao Nguyen and his team are the ONLY physicians who have been able to help me. I have severe back and neck problems resulting from multiple accidents. 6 fractures, bulging discs, herniated and compresed discs throughout my spine completely limiting my ability to function. These profesionals have made it posible to not only play with my young children but to actually ride my horse on occasion which should be unheard of with my injuries. There are no words for what he has done.
