I took my daughter to Dr. Nguyen today for the first time. The staff was friendly and efficient. We were taken back quickly. Dr. Nguyen came in right away and was very friendly. She took care of a mole on my daughter's scalp, a few warts on her arm/hand, and prescribed treatment for her acne. I especially liked being able to take care of everything in one appointment and not dragging things out, requiring multiple appointments, like other doctors tend to do.

I have been seeing by Dr Nguyen for years, I actually followed her to her new practice. She is the best doctor you could get for yourself. Although she is a dermatologist, she is also very knowledgeable regarding all the issues I had. I wonder why the other specialist didn't even realize that. She is a lovely lady and very thorough as a doctor. She is also easy to talk to. The office staff is helpful as well.

It is sad that people nowadays only leave bad reviews for doctors and so shy to share their good experience. Such a shame. I absolutely love Dr Nguyen and all her staff.They are a young and energetic group with all the good skills and good hearts there to help you. They found a melanoma on my husband's face and the Dr Nguyen performed the surgery. 2 months later, you can barely find the scar. She is a true artist. She is also very genuine. They do what is needed instead of what makes money

Dr Nguyen is in too big of a hurry to do her job. My experience would indicate that she is in a hurry because she does not know her field of expertise. She could not diagnose dermatitis and Immune Hypersensitivity. She did not biopsies, no tests of any kind. She lied about not being able to do a procedure because it is not covered by insurance. I would have been better off going to an auto mechanic to treat my skin problem. Not sure she is a doctor and if she is an ignorant one with no skills.

i went to dr nyugen because my pediatrician raecommended her. She is knowledgeable but you have to be thick skinned. She can be really mean in the way she says things. As I question her to try to understand things she gets irate. She's always in a hurry and doesn't listen to you. It's just here's the problem. No talking. Here's what you do. My kids have chronic severe eczema and we are still battling it. We are just constantly using medicines to try to clear and maintain clear skin.
in gilbert,AZ |
I had a rough patch of skin on my palm that started as a bump that then doubled in size within 2 weeks. The dr quickly said it was a callous called lichen simplex chronicus and asked if it itches or if I had skin conditions as a child. I didn't, and I pushed back and told her the background of the spot. She then asked if I had a type-A personality and if I had a tendency to pick at my skin. I don't. I left her office with sample steroid cream and no piece of mind. I'm getting a 2nd opinion.
Gilbert, AZ |
I took my children to see the doctor a while back because of a rash. As soon as she came she calmed my nerves and reassured me that everything was alright. She walked me through my child's condition with such ease that I was impressed by her knowledge. She reassured me about topical steroid use on my baby's skin. Since our visit and follow up my son has not had any recurrence of his rash! I am extremely happy with her and her friendly staff
in Phoenix, AZ |
She's the doctor that realized how sick my son was, she worked him up, spent so much time for us without even charge us. All she said was, I want the same thing, I want little Alex to get better. She pulled all the strings she could to find out what was wrong. Because of her we found out that my son has leukaemia... This is heart broken, but now we know and it is treatable. I would pay anything to this doctor that saved my son's life.
in Gilbert, AZ |
She is in too much of a hurry. She did a procedure on my face - cosmetic. She missed several spots but zapped the skin next to it. I now have scars when she said I would not have any and still have the spots she was trying to remove. While she did offer to re-do the procedure free of charge I am very leery to let her near my face. Very very disappointed . My regular doctor referred me to her. Will definitely let my doctor know .
in Scottsdale, AZ |
This office will take you for every penny you have. I went in as a former patient of Dr. Nguyen's from another practice. The billing office is just now billing me for a visit last August. I had a simple procedure done for which they tried to charge $772. I am now stuck with a $400 bill. The office staff, namely Shenji told me when I called that $400 was not that much. She told me if you went to the ER, you would pay $500 for a chest xray. No attempt to help sort the fees out. DONT GO HERE!!
