Dr Nguyen removed my thyroid for a cancerous nodule in 2014. He took the time to explain everything to me and going in to surgery I felt prepared and confident. He came highly recommended from a colleague. Surgery was successful and healing went well. Five years later the scar is barely noticeable. I would see him again and recommend him to anyone.

I saw Dr. Nguyen for two reasons: one for tonsillitis this year and two for tonsillitis last year. It sucked, felt like I was swallowing glass and had a terrible fever. Doc diagnosed me correctly and subsequently prescribed the correct antibiotics to nip the problem in the butt. Needless to say, I felt better within two days. He explains things very thoroughly and patiently, which is very important to me as I am not a doctor and want to know all the why's and what for's.
