I have been with Dr. Nguyen since he started with the VSI. If it weren't for his care and balancing of my pain meds I would not be up and walking. It is due to his compassion and skill that I am as mobile as I am. He is willing to to get emails from me (at 3 am), shifts my meds in bad times, and is my rock when the pain tries to overtake my life. He is the only medical professional that I trust my very life to. What a gift he is to those of us who need a great PM Doc.

Dr Nguyen changed my life. Words will never convey the depths of my gratitude yet I'll try so that others will be lucky enough to experience his first rate phenomenal care. Dr Nguyen isn't just brilliantly knowledgeable as a physician, he's also unbelievably empathetic and compassionate, which sadly is a rare combination. He spends time actually listening to patients& genuinely cares. Highly recommended isn't even suffice! He is an amazing Dr and even stays on top of new findings in medicine!

Dr. Nguyen is wonderful! He has helped manage my lower back and leg pain for 5+ years and I couldn't ask for a better pain management Dr. He is personable, compassionate, knowledgeable, and I believe he truly cares about each and every one of his patients. I can't imagine every going to another pain management Dr!

I have been going to Dr Nguyen for several years after my last back surgery. I actually consider him a friend in addition to my pain Dr. I would recommend him to anyone who is suffering from chronic pain. Dr Nguyen is a very compassionate Dr who goes out of his way to help relieve you pain.

I have been a patient of Dr. Nguyen for close to 10 years. I was told 10 years ago by Dr. Schuler that I would never be free of pain so he introduced me to Dr. Nguyen. Dr. Nguyen has been very personable, patient, empathetic and compassionate.

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.
