I had a great visit with Dr. Nguyen this week. I was referred to him to talk about frequent migraines. I have suffered for a while but have never had a doctor try to figure out how to help them. It was always a "go lay down in a dark room until it is better" approach and that wasn't helping me, since I miss work and family time. His staff was very personable and chipper. He was very informative and he LISTENED to my concerns and answered my questions with knowledge and patience. Would recommend!

Ummm let's see, I was able to get in extremely quickly with this doctor. I was surprised. Office staff was not that remarkable. Dr came in and argued with me about my condition which I am very familiar with. Wanted to know what I wanted from him. Went over meds & he gave me a script & said if I didn't take this 1 he could do nothing for me & I needed surgery & didn't need to hear more about issue as we were done. Told me to come back in 3 months. Med made feel like a zombie. didnt go back.

Staff are courteous and warm. I did not have to wait long. I found Dr. Nguyen to be kind, thorough, patient, informative and very intelligent. I had my husband with me and we both feel as if I received excellent care.
He has no bedside manner....I have gotten more information about my husband's condition from our primary care doctor. We will not be going back to this man. No problem in getting appointments as no one likes going to see this doctor. I have found no one that likes him. Now I know why. Trying to find another neuro now

This is by far the worst doctor i have ever experienced. He wont let you explain yourself andnd tells you he is right about everything.. He doesnt care about you or anything but him. If you want to die then go see him.

I will not go back and suggest you do not either. He was awful, he kept asking me what I think he should do. I am not a neurologist or I wouldn't be there. He was very dismissive and wrote me a prescription for Botox to be filled and brought back? He didn't listen or care a about a history. This appointment was a waist of my time and his. Not surprising he was so was so easy to get into.
Horrible patient bedside manner; did not listen to patient's or family member's concern... Wait to see another neurologist or drive to another area!
