I will never want to come back to this doctor . I don't know how good she is but the way she treated patient is not like doctor so as her staffs . Instead of denial to see me she made many difficulties for me to feel uncomfortable. While her staffs called me for the appointment that means all the papers must be processed but when I came she still said the procedure was not approved ... I couldn't explain what happened to her office , very very upset also this affected to my health and spirit.
We have to comply with the patient's insurance, and their authorization need to be approved prior to the patient being seen. We checked their auth was not yet approve the day of their appointment. We tried to let the pt know, however we were unable to get a hold of them. When the pt came in, we explained to them the situation and advised them to call their insurance to get their authorization approved. If it is not approved, unfortunately we are not able to see the patient.

Nr. Nguyen does not want to listen to the patient. I left the office without knowing anything about my condition! She left me with an assistant, hoping she's coming back. instead, she wrote me a prescription without even healing anything from me or telling me what my problem is! Worse experience in my entire life! I can't even talk about the useless people on the front desk. I thought this office was acting for "what would you do" show!!
The Doctor always asks the patient before she leaves the exam room if they have any more questions, and the staff always ask the patient if they have any questions again before they leave.

Simply stunning. She was kind, caring, and patient, even taking the time to explain everything to my mother. The staff was amazing and spoke many languages to converse with everyone. Furthermore, the office was spotless, the bathroom was probably cleaner than my own and I am a neat freak. It was also very professional and she was very efficient.
