Dr Truong is fine as a doctor, although he pushes sleep apnea tests every time I see him. He does have the most aggravating nurse though. Just the one and I didn’t think to get her name. She’s very rude in person as well as on the phone. The rest of the staff is friendly though.

Dr. Troung was totally unprepared and hadn't read the notes from the referring physician had sent over ahead of time. After me bringing him up to speed, he told me that he didn't think I had sleep apnea but sent me in for sleep study anyway. I had to go in pay for and second office visit just so he could read me the sleep study results and tell me I didn't have sleep apnea. Duh! Then he asked me why his staff didn't do a breathing test on me. How should I know? Asked me to come again for breathing test. Seriously? Two expensive and bogus office visits and an unnecessary sleep study. He mentioned that if my symptoms persist then they would have to do another sleep study and I reminded him of our first visit where I told him I didn't have any sleep apnea symptoms. I told him I wouldn't return and he just shrugged and said, "don't come if you don't want to." Such atrocious bedside manners and horrible doctor, and equally unhelpful and lazy staff.

I would never recommend this Doctor or staff to anyone! Prescriptions were not called in as stated. Numerous Calls were never returned. Two months later I am still waiting for a return call regarding a prescription. Dr. Truong did not make the effort to treat my sleep issues after the first treatment did not work. I changed doctors and have had nice success.

He genuinely cared and listen to his patient and their family's concerns and take the time to explain to us in detail my mother's condition in a professional; yet, caring way. We would definitely recommend Dr. Truong to our family and friends.
