What People Say About Dr. Joanna Nguyen, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Dr. Nguyen has been my Primary Care physician for the past two years. In that time I have been seen by her twice as she is protected from patient contact by the office staff and PAs. A typical malady requires to initiate at least three conversations. One to request an appt., one to remind the staff I requested an appt., and one for an actual appt. where I do not get to see the doctor. If I need a prescription or referral I will need to initiate at least two more conversations to remind Dr. Nguyen' team of the follow up requirement. I will be changing Doctors as the last malady required a record 11 contacts with the office.

The absolute best Dr. I’ve ever had. I was misdiagnosed by Mercy Folsom and she was able to find the problem, and get me the surgery I needed. Forever grateful!

I saw her nurse practitioner, Sean today. He was very unhelpful and didn't seem like he knows much of anything. He didn't even address a couple things I told him when he examined me. Talking to him was a waste of my time and effort, and I'm not so sure I'll go back very often. This site and the girls in the office lied about his willingness to discuss some of my issues. He laughed at me and said they should be fired. I'm real close to giving up on this so called healthcare business .

Dr. Nguyen is the best doctor I have seen in years. She was my doctor and then a change in medical plans required me to use other providers. Now I am back with her and could not be happier.
