in Los Angeles, CA |
Do NOT believe any previous "GOOD" reviews of Bao Nguyen. They're mostly from years ago and he is probably one of the most heartless and Un-caring “pain management” doctors in all of Los Angeles! He’s not a pain management Dr at all. He’s an “eastern medicine” person who does not care one bit that...more
