Dr Nguyn lakes or has NO BEDSIDE MANNER. He has seen me three times All three times the same lecture about a salt free diet. I have followed his RULES to the letter and still gained 9 lbs. I explain I’m not eating anything with salt. He then vegans to accuse you of not eating a salt free diet. I’m sitting in tears and he has no sympathy what so ever. He doesn’t try to figure out if there could be another problem are nothing. He’s not a doctor to reason with. He’s unrealistic

Dr. Nguyen does not rush. He allows time for questions and concerns during each visit and generally there is not a lot of waiting.

I did not visit Dr. Nguyen. My PCP recommended him. A week after making the appo, the office calls me and asks me to come 30 mins early, because Dr. Nguyen wants to do an ultrasound. Dr. Nguyen had not even seen me. We have radiologists in our family, and they think those office procedures are not of good quality, and is done simply to pad up the bill. The office had not given me any info to fill out. They are not on epic, and cannot see my info. So I wanted to cancel my appo. It took me forever

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 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.
