Dr. Leiah team were very knowledgeable and very supportive.
in Los Angeles, CA |
Dr. Nghiemphu listens carefully and guides you in your decision making with grace and respect. She never tells you what to do; she explains the options and what the benefits and burdens are of each option. She may be a researcher but she is warm and personable and completely available to her patients.

I had a horrible experience with Dr. Nghiemphu. She advised me to wait until the tumors grew to start causing more serious problems ( in my case loss of sight). When I expressed my concerns about waiting she told me the worst that could happen if I waited was hydrocephalus and laughing in a dismissive way told me that they treat hydrocephalus often and its not a big deal. After, I questioned her plan for my treatment that was based off an assumption. Then she told me she couldn't help me.
