Professional from the moment I stepped out of the elevator. Reception was quick and had everything I needed for a first time visit, and was taken back for x rays and then to a room, with courteous and professional nursing staff. The Doctor was in and focused on me. Was confident and had a plan of action.

My appointment was at 10:30. I got there at 9:45 ahead of time. I was not called to the back till after 11:30. I thought I had an appointment with the doctor not a nurse practitioner. Total waste of time.

Exceptionally well trained and caring surgeon. He operated on my husband with complete success and now it is my turn for his skilled surgeon hands to fix my neck issues. I think he is an exceptional doctor. I highly recommend Dr. Nguyen.

As always Dr. Nguyen was thorough and has recommended a cat scan as the xrays was not conclusive.

Dr. Nyugen is actually working at Kennedy White Orthopaedic in Sarasota, and a satellite office in Englewood, Florida. He was recommended to me by a friend, and I will be forever grateful. He is smart, listens and offers detailed, yet understandable, explanations for your pain. He will give you your best options, and then you decide what you want to do moving forward. No pressure. I have sent family (husband and mother) and friends to him. They all could not be happier. He repaired my friends very botched surgery. Do yourself a favor and get a first or second opinion before you undergo major surgery. He is simply the best.

My previous fusion in 2008, repairs in 2012 and 2014 had failed. The screws holding the rods had pulled away from the bone. I was in constant pain. Even the powerful prescribed pain medications weren't effective. Dr. Nguyen accepted me for two days back to back surgery. I was in the OR for over sixteen hours. I spent four days in the hospital and three weeks in the hospital rehabilitation wing. A month out of my surgery and I stand straight and I walk. Dr. Nguyen a superior surgeon.

Dr. Nguyen was very knowledgeable and personable. He took time to explain my condition and show me test results. He provided several options for my treatment and listened to what I was concerned about. Definitely glad I saw him!
