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.
