Dr. Nguyen has taken care of my grandparents and my parents as their primary physician. He is very friendly and thorough with his exams. He explains thing clearly and truly shows how much he cares about his patients. The wait to see him is never too long and I can almost always get an appointment when I need one. The office staff is friendly and the office is clean and efficiently run. Have Recommended him to many of my family and friends.

I've been a patient for about a year, followed shortly by my husband. We couldn't be more pleased with the level of care we have received. Dr. Nguyen recently cut to the chase in recommending a course of action to address a complex and troubling skin condition that puzzled the "specialist" I was seeing. Following his advice, the situation is resolving and I am much relieved!
