What People Say About Dr. Derrick Nguyen, MD
Reply
Terrible doctor. Won't listen. Prescribed me medications I had already told him I was on. Refused to give steroid shot even though massive inflammation was obvious. Gave me narcotics instead (hydrocodone). I am currently on Butrans which blocks opiate receptors, and he would not listen to what I was saying and insisted I take the hydrocodone and that it would work for the pain. Came in later and said there was nothing he can give me that would work. Asked again for steroids - refused. Terrible!!
