Dr. Nguyen's Care Philosophy

My philosophy is simple: the best-informed patient has the best outcome. It is my responsibility to provide you with a clear explanation of your diagnosis, based on all the information. Once we have a diagnosis, the treatment options are more obvious. While surgery is an option, it may not be the best treatment initially. Non-surgical treatment may be most appropriate initially. I practice evidence-based medicine, using the most appropriate technique to have the best outcome.

    Patient Comments (1)
    I wouldn’t even recommend him to a stranger. I am living in excruciating intolerable pain now. In my opinion he is curt, pompous, lacks in empathy and compassion. He has poor communication skills. He states his Core Philosophy is simple: the best-informed patient has the best outcome. I was not informed of my surgical path until immediately before surgery. He utilized approx. 3-sentences. He seemed angry that I had questions. He didn’t make a Post Op visit in the hospital.
