This Dr. takes his time you and very honest and upfront. He also has a bedside manner and make you feel like a real patient and person not like a number.

I have been a patient of Dr. Nguyen's for 4 1/2 years. I am a registered nurse and my husband is a physician. We have the utmost confidence and trust in Dr. Nguyen. We both have no reservations recommending and referring patients to his office. The staff are knowledgeable and extremely caring. They treat everyone with kindness and respect. The only oncologist to see and trust!

in Bakersfield, CA |
From the first phone call, the nursing staff, to the ladies in the office, never ever have I experienced the highest level of care and concern as the entire staff with Dr. Nguyen? I felt as if I was the only patient in their care. Dr. Nguyen is my hero... God bless this compassionate doctor.
in Lake Isabella, CA |
He is truly the most compassionate doctor I have ever met. I already have boasted of him all over the internet and neighbors, friends and family. They told me that if they ever come down with the C word, they would do all they can to have him for their doctor.
