Dr. Troung is a committed and caring physician. He goes above and beyond. Dr. Troung takes the time to listen and to carefully explain the next course of action, should it be needed. His bed-side manner and compassion is genuine. Dr. Troung and his nursing staff have worked together for years. The front office staff always have smiles on their faces. My husband and all of his family members have Dr. Troung as their primary Doctor. He has become a permanent member of our family!

When your care gets complicated this interest doesn’t have time for you. He will terminate your care without warning.

If you suffer from anything more complicated than acold seek help else where. Dr. Truong is not interested or willing to help. He is extremely dismissive if he can not figure your symptoms out within the first visit and will himself tell you to look else where. Also expect long wait times and your appointment to be at least 30 minuets late. He is constantly overbooked. If you only need a quick check up he will be fine but be aware that he is not helpful for anything else

Dr Truong was referred to me by another doctor when my family doctor retired. The first day I met him I knew he was going to be my new doctor. He is so kind and caring for his patients. He will always see me when I am sick. I have been a patient of Dr Truong for about 15 years. I have referred several people to him and they are still seeing him.

I have used Dr. Truong for over 10 years and would highly recommend him. His knowledge and personal care are above the normal. In fact his diagnosis saved my wife's life. Her OBGYN missed finding her ovarian cancer (5 1/2" tumor and a smaller one on the other ovary) for the past two years. Dr. Truong kept running tests and recommended another doctor that discovered the cancer. I can't say enough good about Dr. Truong's work ethic.

I have been going to Dr Truong since 2000 at which time my great experience with him started and has been on going since, can't say enough about Dr Truong and his staff-best bed side manners I have ever seen in a dr. The office staff as a whole at the clinic is great, from the blood techs-to X-ray great staff all around.

I am 75 years old, been a patient of Dr. Troung for over 10 years. I have never had a Doctor that is more thorough or more caring. He takes the time to know each patient first as a human being and then as a patient. He actually listens to what is said and patiently explains his findings and suggestions. He is surrounded by professional, courteous and efficient assistants. I recommend Dr Troung to everyone I know.

Dr. Truong is an excellent doctor! He shows a caring compassion lacking in many physicians. He listens to what I have to say and he takes the time to explain what is wrong and how he plans to treat the issue. I can call his office and get in to see him really quickly if I am really sick. He goes out of his way to take care of his patients and you can tell he genuinely cares about you as a person. I definitely would recommend him to anyone I know and care about!

I've been seeing Dr Truong since 2000 in my opinion you couldn't ask for a better doctor. He listens to what I have to say and always airs on the side of caution even if I don't have an appointment and I'm sick it tells me to come in anyway he always makes time to be sure I get the best care if he doesn't know what's going on he will send me to a specialist that does he takes very good care of his patients
