in Spring, TX |
Dr. Nguyen is patient, understanding and knowledgeable man. He takes the time to answer any and all questions I may have, no matter how ridiculous they may be. I am thrilled to have him as my transplant nephrologist.
in Montgomery, TX |
In the 17 years leading up to and following my transplant, I have had numerous Doctors care for me. Dr. Nguyen is certainly among the very best in his field. I feel very secure under his and his associates care. It seems I have numerous opportunities for their support and they have always been there with the correct answer and direction. I am fortunate to have him as my Physician.
