What People Say About Dr. Patrick Nguyen, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I had an umbilical hernia lap repair by Dr. Nguyen. He was excellent. He spent adequate time in the pre surgical appointment. The surgical procedure was uneventful with minimal scarring. I also worked as a recovery room RN and had the opportunity to work with Dr. Nguyen. There were never any post surgical problems. I think Dr. Nguyen is an excellent surgeon and would gladly refer a friend or family member. The office is very nice as are the office staff.

Treated like a number. Concerns regarding cost for treatment (I have a bleeding disorder which requires very expensive ancillary treatment) were utterly disregarded. This physician will never speak to you. You will wait 30 minutes on hold only to leave a message. A nurse with zero understanding of the situation will respond. Do I sound emotional? Yes, I am. Knowing your surgeon, who you will entrust with your life under anesthesia, could care less about you will make you that way.
