This was my first visit with Dr. Nguyen and it was a very pleasant visit from the beginning to the end. The receptionist was very welcoming and answered all my questions. Dr. Nguyen’s nurse was amazing and thorough. She made sure she answered any questions I had and made me feel so comfortable. Dr. Nguyen was also amazing he definitely has bed side manners. He was very attentive and informative. I did not feel rushed at all. I’m so glad I decided to make this appointment!
