What People Say About Dr. Vincent Nguyen, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I have never experienced a doctor that was so arrogant and rude in my life. I was not even the patient at the time, I was accompanying a family member, and even I felt attacked. He fussed the entire time, did not let her explain her self or give her more than 2 seconds, literally, to answer the questions he asked her. He was extremely inconsiderate and never once showed compassion. I was very shocked and very angry. I will never go back there and I will not let my family go back there either. I understand tough love is needed sometimes but being completely rude and fussing at your patients is NOT the way to go about patient care.

I went in with a hurt and swollen ankle a few years ago, and Dr. Nguyen told me I was overweight and needed to run! After my 3rd visit with him and hearing him repeatedly putting me down about my weight, I was so angry that I told him off and never went back! I'm in my late 50's and have had 2 knee surgeries and torn tendons in my feet. Very insensitive!

Dr. Vincent Nguyen is awesome. He really do care for his patients. He do explain everything very thoroughly and his staff is also very helpful. I am taking my mom and dad for check up every 3 months since 1 year now and I am very much happy with the relationship that Dr. Vincent Nguyen makes with us over the year. I recommend everyone to Dr. Vincent Nguyen.

I feel so much better reading these reviews. I thought it was me. I also have never left a review in my life. Upon leaving my last appointment, I overheard him complaining about me to the nursing staff. I was totally humiliated as everyone could hear what he was saying. Even the nurse told him he was being too loud. I hope none of his patients ever feel the way he made me feel and I could never recommend him after this behavior.

When I went to see Dr. Vincent, he was upfront and honest with me. He made me take a different approach on my lifestyle when it came down to being healthy. He doesn't sugarcoat things, he tells you how it is. I like that because it makes me to know that my health can either save my life or destroy it. And his two nurses are the best, especially Shelia. She takes her time with you and listens thoroughly. Also Lauren makes sure to return calls in a timely manner. She is knowledgeable and helpful.

I am extremely confident in saying that Mr. Ngyuen is the worst doctor I have ever encountered. I lasted two visits with him before I went elsewhere. He barely takes the time to allow you to explain your condition. Arrogant, loves to brag, and spends 90% of the visit talking about himself. Diagnosis without asking the most elementary level of questions. Even caught him in a lie on my last visit. Please take yourself & your family to a more competent doctor for your own sake. I would give 0 star

I started seeing Dr. Nguyen when he took over the practice from Dr. Curtis. He seems like he cares, talks a lot about healthy habits, exercise, etc. Explains a lot. But he told me walking doesn't count, that I should pay tennis instead. Also doesn't not care about emotional health at all. He doesn't have time, says he is not a psychologist. I started dreading the visits every 6 months and realized it's time to move on.

I was a patient of Dr Nguyen's for around 2 years. He always seemed to take the time to explain things which I liked, but on a recent visit things changed. I had a primary reason for the visit and a couple of other questions. The Nurse relayed this to him. When he entered the room the first thing he said to me is "we need to hurry up" and proceeded to tell me how he was trying to speed up the process so that he could see more clients. Looking for a new Dr. Would not recommend this Doctor.

I think Dr Nguyen is a fantastic and very smart doctor. I was really shocked but some of the review I have read here. He will tell you what you don't want to hear, but that is his job, he is your doctor, not your friend. He told me I was overweight and needed exercise, and he is correct - my cholesterol was high and I am pre diabetic. Yes he talked a lot, but it was to educate me on my conditions and the dangers they pose for my health over the next 10-20 years. My entire family sees him!

Dr. Nguyen is always very nice and polite. However I do always feel rushed during my appointments. I would say he's not the best doctor I've seen but not the worst either. He does order tests that I request but I normally have to be pretty durn persistent. His office staff are very friendly and always return my calls promptly. I also never have a problem making appointments, I always get in quickly. For reference, I have been visiting this practice for about 7 months now.
