Learn about this doctor

Care Philosophy

I like to focus on minimizing medications and incorporate complementary approaches when appropriate. For a while, I worked exclusively in hospital-based medicine, so I am familiar with being more aggressive and understand when a patient needs to be admitted. Be prepared to think outside the box if you see me and I think a bit of levity is always welcome. I encourage patients to read up on issues they have concerns about in order to educate themselves and welcome their ideas.Read more

Dr. Phan is the best! He communicates to you what your treatment options are and that consider the whole person. He is caring, knowldegeable, and spends time with you. Dr. Phan has made sense of my thyroid problems and other issues. I had tried several doctors before including endocrinologists. Their focus was totally OFF. Love you Dr. Phan.

I loved Dr. Phan but his staff is not cordial and rude. I have been going to Dr. Phan for two years but received a very rude phone call today and terrible customer service from them, due to that I will stop attending this clinic.

I have been a patient of Northern Pines Health (Dr. Phan and Dr. Nguyen) ever since 2010. BOTH of these doctors have been excellent. I have a complicated medical history, and each one has spent their time with me exploring options, explaining diagnosis and procedures, explaining test results, calling to follow up, etc. Their staff is extremely caring and efficient and their office is always impeccably clean and bright. I can't say enough good things about them.

Best doctor for thyroid treatment in Houston. Have been through some doozies. Love Dr. Phan!

I've been seeing Dr. Phan for autoimmune thyroid issues for a year next month. His bedside manner is impeccable (he even performs his own blood draws), he's kind, attentive, and very knowledgeable. Dr. Phan takes the time his patients need, and is also very responsive via the patient portal. He understands that Big Pharma is often not the way to stellar health, and is simply there to guide you. Staff gives appointment reminder calls and are all very kind and sincere.

A wonderful, insightful, patient, incredibly well-read, thoughtful,, humble (yes), and understanding doctor. He has a huge amount of knowledge about thyroid-related issues, and also knows about thyroid's relation to adrenals and is open to using hydrocortisone when appropriate. Of the 8-10 doctors I've been to for my very challenging and mysterious heath condition over the last two years, he has been by far the best and under him I've seen the most progress. He also has a great sense of humor.
