Locust Hill, VA |
Dr. Nguyen has always been very considerate of my problems with pain. He has worked with my other doctors at Virginia Spine Institute to provide me with the best possible relief from my pain. Over the years that I've seen him I have had cervical injections as well as oral pain medications. He has always worked with me so I could live my life as free from pain as possible, and I can't ask for more

I've been seeing Dr. Nguyen for chronic pain for the last year and a half. He is very attentive and responsive. He has always taken the necessary time needed to go over my current pain situation. I've had steroid injections 3 times now as that is the only way to control my back pain. I doubt that I will ever see anyone besides Dr. Nguyen.
