Dan Curtin – May 13, 2021
Really bad. Due to Covid-19 pandemic, Dr. Nguyen didn't see his patients. I can't reach Dr. Nguyen when I need his advise. My husband, his patient, was sick I called his office many times but my calls was run around. A few days later, when my husband had difficult breathing, I brought him to the hospital. They said my husband had Covid-19 pneumonia. After almost 2 months at the hospital, my husband had passed away.

M.A. Moore – Oct 24, 2019
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!

I have referred many friends and family to Dr. Chris Nguyen because he is the type of doctor who really cares about your health and well being. He is friendly, he and his staff do their best to fit you in, whenever the need arises. Dr. Chris is also knowledgeable of new medical techniques and drugs so that you can benefit from the latest technical devices and prescriptions. I have also taken my aging parents to see Dr. Chris, I trust him to keep my family and me in the best of health.
