If I could give him negative stars I most definitely would. He is the most obnoxious, condescending specialist I’ve ever been to. He’s judgemental and makes wild accusations about your condition.

Dr Nguyen is a nightmare! His bedside manner is atrocious, he almost killed me by knicking an atery during a procedure, and when i told nurse i was bleeding alot, he said i had bleeding hemorrhoids. If it wasn’t for nurse insisting i needed to go to ICU, I wouldn’t be alive! Multiple blood transfusions and 6 days in ICU thanks to this guys handiwork. I wouldn’t recommend him to my worst enemy! I can’t believe Port St Lucie Medical Center has him on call, he’s a huge liability. Worst Dr Ever!

I have been seeing Dr Nguyen for one year and I am so grateful for him and his staff. He is knowledgable, caring, and goes out of his way to be available for his patients. The same goes for his staff who surpasses EVERY other doctors office I have visited! Thank you Dr. Nguyen and staff for your all that you do!

I went to this Dr a few years back. He is extremely unprofessional. He left the door open and expected me to talk about personal information. I can talk very fast so he told me I was very annoying and he didn't know how my husband could stand me. I ignored him and kept to the subject at hand which he didn't seem capable of doing. Unbeknownst to me, my husband had also gone to this doctor and found him to be unprofessional as well.

Spent over 20 years in the medical field , I have never run into a doctor with such a bedside attitude. Also he writes orders without seeing patient for a week. Would never refer anyone to him. Got stuck with him not by choice but hospital choice

At first I thought he is a kind and knowledgeable doctor and liked him. Then he showed who he is. He doesn't care about my suffering. He doesn't listen and refuse to exam. He talks on cellphone to another patient for a long time in middle of seeing me. He prescribed tons of steroid creams, never told me not to use long term and in large quantity. He just doesn't care. My condition got worse and worse under his care. I finally gave up and changed my GI doctor. Now I am getting better.

After suffering with pancreatic illnesses for three years and undergoing a major procedure, Hassan suffered greatly. Dr, Nguyen did not just treat the illness, he researched the cause. That helped to change our families life because Hassan's health improved. Dr. Nguyen treats his patients as if they are part of his own family and not just a patient. He truly cares and is a very kind and genuine man. We were lucky to find him. Hmamly family Fort Pierce, Fl

Egotistical and cares nothing about the patient. You are just a number. If your conditions worsen through doing exactly what he says, you are told to go to the ER. Thinks he is a God but has no people skills. 2 THUMBS DOWN!!

Dr Nguyen and his office staff are phenomenal and very personble. He helped me understand my health concerns in a simple manner that I could finally feel relaxed about. I love how thier office is set up and the ladies at the desk are great and full of positive smiles. I have seen many doctors over the years and he is one of the best because I left feeling comfortable and sure in his answers. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

I would NOT recommend this so called Dr. to anyone!!! He is very sarcastic, he doesn't listen to patient or family. He truly thinks he is God! Does not listen at all to symptoms the patient is experiencing. He only wants to know about the scopes he has preformed (and I might say, we allowed the tests to be done because he quilted the family) when he found nothing, he does not want to try to help figure whats wrong. I was told by a few he is good but all said he is not nice at all.
