I went to see Dr Nguyen for shoulder pain. On the first visit, he spent very little time with me although he did refer me for an MRI. On my second visit after the MRI he recommended surgery. He had not neither asked how much pain I was having, nor suggested either physical therapy or a cortisone injection first. I would absolutely NOT recommend him. Interestingly, I got a second opinion and the doctor recommended physical therapy first!!!!

I have never been more pleased with any medical procedure than my experience with Dr. Nguyen. He is very pleasant, knows how to talk to patients, lays it out in an organized way and follows through to to make sure the patient is doing well during recovery and achieves the mobility desired. He explained clearly what I needed to do to have the best result and what to expect. I followed his plan to a letter and achieved an extremely good result. He has an upbeat personality, very pleasant.

Dr. Nguyen did a total knee replacement surgery for my left knee. ...In my meetings with him prior to the surgery, I was impressed with his knowledge. Further, a year and a half later, I am impressed with the functionality of my knee. I have not had any problems what-so-ever. ...I am now due for knee replacement surgery on my right knee. As far as i am concern, he is the only doctor that I want working on my knee.

Dr. Nguyen is an amazing doctor but his staff are absolutely terrible. I have been going back and forth for 4 months about a $5,000 bill that they are now billing me for despite my great insurance. They say that because my insurance didn’t pay them “what they wanted” they are now billing me for the whole bill! After speaking with my insurance about this bill I find out they didn’t take the proper steps pre surgery to get approval and have no right to bill me for their mistakes. DO NOT GO HERE!

Great doctor...took me right out of pain that i had for one year. The office is delightful and this doctor is remarkably accomplished. I feel very lucky to have found him to deal with my complicated shoulder. He is very personable and really and truly cared about me. I will be forever grateful..Respectfully, Laurie Wright
