Dr Nguyen ordered an MRI of my spine because of pain and to see the extent of my disc degeneration and spinal stenosis He also gave me a script for physical therapy. I had the MRI done the following day 4/12/17. The report was faxed : "sent and received" to him the same day: compression fracture of the spine T12 NO ONE CALLED. Started PT on Monday 4/17/17 and had 2 more PT appts. 4/24 fol up visit he tells me I broke my back. PT could have injured me further. EXTREMELY ANGRY not going bacK.
I appreciate the candid and detailed feedback. I extend my apologies if the experience had in office as less than stellar as that is never my intention. Each patient should leave feeling as though their issue has been addressed and confident in their treatment plan. My door is always open and I welcome patients to reach out at their earliest convenience so that I may promptly address any questions or concerns. In the meantime, I send my best wishes for swift recovery.

Dr Nguyen is an amazing doctors , he does awesome work.
in Toms River, NJ |
He treated me terrible. I had no choice but to see him due to an on the job injury and he treated me like I was trying to get over even though I had legitimate injuries. I had horrible anxiety everytime I had a doctors visit. Just seeing his smug picture infuriates me. I have never been treated so awful by a doctor and I am surprised by his high reviews. I also would wait sometimes 2 hours before being seen in the brick office. I feel like I'm in the twilight zone seeing these praises.

Dr. Nguyen performed a fusion of the L5S1. Since the surgery I have had significant improvement with my back. I no longer have the burning, swelling, stabbing pain. My sciatica has improved and my nerves in my leg and foot seem to be healing as time goes by. I am very happy with the outcome of the surgery and everything that Dr.Nguyen advised would happen during and after the surgery is right on target. I will continue physical therapy as directed to strengthen by back and legs. I would recommen
