We are located in the heart of Sugar Land. I’m board certified by the American Board of plastic surgery and that is the only recognized entity governing plastic surgeons. When you go see a plastic surgeon – that’s what you look for .. are they board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. I’m also board certified by the American Board of Surgery and that relates to my general surgery training prior to being a plastic surgeon. In my opinion that’s important because it gives you the background and the basics of how to be a good surgeon. The surgeon’s staff is a very important component of his or her practice and it’s true for me. My staff is comprised of very motivated individuals who collectively have one goal in mind and that is to take great care of our patients, to deliver high-quality care, in a very safe and supportive environment. They are an extension of what I believe a plastic surgeon should be. I’m very proud of our facility. We built this from the ground up. As a young practice I knew what we wanted to do – we wanted to create an environment where we can control your entire experience from the consultation to your preoperative care to your surgery and your postoperative care. We built this practice from the ground up here in Sugar Land and with our clinic design by myself and our design team to meet the needs of our particular patient clientele. It is high-end, it is well conceived and we clearly cut no corners and most patients who come here they are wowed by what they see and I’m real proud of that. On the surgery side Lake Pointe Surgery Center is an ambulatory surgical center. It is licensed by the state, and we did not cut any corners on that side as well. It is not simply in office suite where you do surgery. It is a hospital like facility where every piece of equipment is the same piece of equipment you would find in a hospital. We have our anesthesia team, all of our nursing staff, everyone that works on that side is board certified by the respective entities. I think it’s a really nice environment to have your cosmetic surgery. The combination of the surgeons experience and training, the staff and our facility together as a whole when you look at it together it makes us very unique. ” Dr John Nguyen

What is medical malpractice?
Medical malpractice is issued when negligence by a doctor causes injury to a patient. For example, a doctor may improperly diagnose, treat or medicate outside the standard of medical care. The three types of malpractice are: a settlement, an arbitration award, or a judgment.
If my doctor has malpractice history, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If your doctor has a malpractice claim, evaluate the information and determine if the action could potentially impact the quality of care you receive. Claim settlements and arbitration awards may occur for a variety of reasons, which should not necessarily reflect negatively on the doctor's professional competence or conduct. You may want to use this information to start a discussion with the doctor about his or her history and specific ability to provide healthcare for you.
How far back does Healthgrades malpractice history go?

No sanctions history found for the years that Healthgrades collects data.
What is a sanction or disciplinary action?
A sanction, also known as a disciplinary action, is an action taken to punish or restrict a doctor who has demonstrated professional misconduct. Sanctions may be imposed by a state medical board, professional medical licensing organization, or the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
If my doctor has sanction history, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If a doctor has a sanction, it does not necessarily mean that he or she is a poor-quality doctor. Some sanctions are not related to medical care, and involve a doctor’s finances or administrative activities. Before you make any choices about changing your doctor, we recommend that you evaluate the doctor’s sanction information and determine how severe or relevant you think the sanction cause and action were.
How far back does Healthgrades sanction history go?

For which states does Healthgrades collect sanction history?

Since Healthgrades painstakingly compiles disciplinary action information from all 50 states, Healthgrades website will show if a physician has a disciplinary action in more than one state.
0 Board Actions
No board actions found for the years that Healthgrades collects data.
What are board actions?
Board actions are non-disciplinary actions imposed upon a doctor based on a complaint investigation. A patient or medical colleague may file a complaint with that state medical board or professional licensing organization, which then investigates the complaint. Board actions are intended to ensure that a doctor is able to perform safe medical and health care tasks.
Types of non-disciplinary actions include an advisory letter, a corrective action agreement, a limitation or restriction on the medical or healthcare tasks a doctor can perform, or a voluntary agreement by the doctor not to practice. A board action can also include a termination of a corrective action agreement or voluntary agreement, which allows the doctor to return to full practice.
If my doctor has a board action, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If a doctor has a board action, it means he or she has had a non-disciplinary action imposed upon him or her. It does not necessarily mean that he or she is a poor quality doctor. Before you make any choices about changing your doctor, evaluate the doctor's board action information and determine how severe or relevant you think the cause and action were.
How far back does Healthgrades non-disciplinary board action history go?
