Biography


Food has always been a big part of my life. Imagine what life would be like if eating made you sick? Because we need food to survive and we are social creatures who revolve much of our lives around food, not being able to eat impacts physical, mental and social well-being. It is this intricate interconnection between the brain and the gut which drew me to the field of Neurogastroenterology & Motility. Disorders affecting the function of the gastrointestinal tract can lead to a variety of disorders, including gastroparesis, functional dyspepsia and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). My research includes understanding the role/impact of physiologic testing on clinical care, exploring novel therapies for gastroparesis and expanding the role of neuromodulation in the treatment of GI motility disorders and pain. I am also interested in understanding overlapping conditions such as chronic fatigue syndrome and Ehlers-Danlos syndrome as it relates to pathophysiology and impact on gastrointestinal symptoms and outcomes. As part of this interest, I have served on two ad-hoc committees for the National Academy of Science (Institute of Medicine): “Development of a Consensus Case Definition for Chronic Multisystem Illness in 1990-1991 Gulf War Veterans” and “Health Care Utilization and Adults with Disabilities”. I strive to improve quality of life for patients and health care providers through development of mindfulness, resilience, engagement and advocacy.

Areas of Special Interest: Gastroparesis, Chronic Nausea, Cyclic Vomiting, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Autonomic dysfunction and Brain-gut disorders

Thank you!
Gave precise information, helpful and caring and listened to my concerns.
Dr Nguyen has been an excellent physician. She has fought on my behalf to get the best care possible. I honestly don't believe I would feel as well as I do and weigh as much as I do if it weren't for Dr Nguyen fighting to treat my symptoms in a non-traditional fashion.

Excellent and very caring. Great shoes.
Dr. Nguyen is very professional and a caring doctor. One of the best doctors I’ve ever had to care for me. Wouldn’t change her for nothing in the world.
Dr Nguyen provided an excellent doctor-patient experience during this video visit. She was attentive to my needs and offered information and suggestions that were appropriate. She was able to ascertain that I understood her instructions without specifically asking me to repeat her words, which I would have found awkward and mildly offensive.
She is an incredible doctor, caring and knowledgeable. I feel so very blessed to be under her care.
She’s terrific- obviously knows her stuff but also managed to make a video appointment feel personal and warm
Dr. Nguyen has truly played one of the most essential roles in the management of my complex condition, and has been an incredible resource since the first day we met. I came to her over 6 years, in a critical & fragile state, and had little hope at that moment in time that I would even see a future (for my condition was rapidly declining and my previous medical team was unable to identify the problem or lacked the tools/resources to treat me). She was the first physician (in over 20 years!) who truly understood the complexity of my disease, and not only saught out to treat my current symptoms, but most importantly, began searching and evaluating the underlying cause(s). Her knowledge base was profound, and when she felt I needed the expertise and knowledge of other practitioners to address the other areas of the body that were affected by my condition, she did not hesitate to get them involved. She has not let one stone go unturned, and I know she will continue to search out new treatments, resources and options as they become available, and as my status continues to change. I became ill at the young age of 17, and I am now almost 40....Dr. Nguyen and the team at Stanford, have truly provided more answers and have offered/given access to more resources than any other group of physicians/health practitioners/hospital teams that I have worked with in the 15+ years prior (and Stanford has been an institution incomparable to any I have experienced in this country thus far!). Dr Nguyen has always taken the time to listen to my concerns, and has never dismissed my thoughts, questions or personal desires when determining our treatment plan (which is so appreciated!!). Thank you Dr. Nguyen - I likely do not express my gratitude enough....I truly hope you know just how much you have impacted my life.
She is one of the best in North California.
very knowledgeable; very professional
Dr. Nguyen is extremely knowledgeable and responsive. Her diagnoses are spot on and her treatment plans are multidimensional and well thought out and integrated. She's been an enormous help treating my digestive issues through the additional troubled waters of chemotherapy. Excellent Doc.
Excellent Doctor! Took her time and asked if I had further questions.
Dr. Nguyen is a leader in her field but has retained the empathy that is so critical in the physician patient relationship. Patients seeing Dr. Nguyen are often chronically and severely ill. The kindness and empathy a physician shows to these patients is more impactful than the physician may realize
Very friendly and came up with several suggestions, tests, recommendations that we hadn't tried yet.
She is a knowledgeable and caring doctor. I'm very grateful for her.
Very understanding and kind Doctor.

Good doctor
She is Great! I like that she thinks ‘outside the box’ to try to help her patients.
I spent 3 years suffering and undergoing numerous medical tests that other gastroenterologists unable to diagnose let alone, find a solution. Dr Linda Nguyen was able to look at the same test results and in 5 minutes gave the correct diagnosis. Within a few months of working with different drugs to address the issues, I felt so much better. My condition cannot be completely cured but can be controlled. I cannot imagine how I could have coped without her direction. I am very grateful. In addition to being a very skilled and knowledgeable physician, she is patient, kind and delightful person. There is no wonder why she is in such high demand. I consider myself extremely fortunate to have her as my physician.
Thank you!!
Dr. Nguyen was great,, very professional, knowledgeable and helped alleviate my medical concerns.
She is an excellent Provider and I respect her treatment and advising

Linda was very good at following up with symptoms and referrals.
She is an EXCELLENT DOCTOR
Very professional..wonderful doctor!!!
Really love Dr. Nguyen. So lucky to be in her practice.
Dr. Nguyen is an excellent provider with whom I have virtually met with twice over the past year. I had many questions, and as a healthcare provider myself, I often want to know more details to better understand clinical reasoning or benefit. She spent time to provide clarification and more information, and did not speak AT me, as many physicians tend to do. I trust Dr. Nguyen with my care and feel comfortable talking with her about my GI issues, which are quite personal.
Excellent Doctor. Her notes are thorough, detailed and very helpful.
She is Awesome Dr. , she listens the issues and helps to find solutions etc.
Dr Nguyen is the most excellent physician! She is truly caring and treats me with such detailed attention and has helped me through my illnesses to healing. I am grateful to have her as my doctor.

Best doctor!
Dr.Nguyen is very caring and empathetic. She explains things in a way that is easily understandable
Nice Doctor
Very good doctor. Did not jump into doing same endoscopy routine and prescribing polypharmacy.
Very knowledgeable and helpful
I stated this before. I moved from Long Beach to go to Stanford. It has been worth the move. I have a chance now for a better life! Sorry - hands shake -
Well done.
Dr. Nguyen is very young lady however extremely professional and knowledgeable in my symptom and/guiding me how to improve my daily life. She is extremely well in dealing with patient.
Dr. listened empathetically, staff were all respectful; timely followup by nurse.
Felt very well taken care of!
As this was a new patients visit, I wish it could have been a little longer.
Dr. Linda Nguyen is an excellent GI Doctor! I have been a patient of hers for almost 20 years!
Dr. Nyguen is always willing to investigate each issue and look "outside the box". I appreciate her knowledge of the entire body, and how the GI system is tightly intertwined with all other organ systems - she is able to address/identify other symptoms which may be underlying causes of current condition. This is a rare specialty that most physicians in her field do not posses.
All the staff have been very professional and courtesy!
I appreciate her. Its a very frustrating time and she hears me and explains everything. I have been to a lot of doctors I can't say the same about.
I was scheduled to meet Dr. Nyguen (I bet I spelled her name wrong :( ) and I was GREATLY surprised to see Shelly Gray who I have a 124% confidence in. Dr. Nyguen also came in and now that I know Shelly is working in this branch of Stanford, I now have a 150% confidence that they'll take great care of me !!!
Dr. Nguyen was extremely thorough, attentive, and caring when listening to me and addressing my symptoms.
I felt understood and educated after visiting with Dr Nguyen. The follow up actions and explanations were reasonable and executable
I'm very thankful for Dr Nguyen and her sweet nurse Cassidy
Doctor didn't make me feel rushed, she listened and responded to all my questions. She provided additional resources so I could look up topics that I wanted to learn more about. Very impressed by her knowledge and communication skills.
always great
excellent
Dr Nguyen is the best! always takes everything into consideration and includes us in all decisions
Good job.
I have been seeing Dr. Nguyen for several years. She is very good at figuring out what is wrong with me. She checks the progress notes of my other doctors and asks me to bring her the test results they order. I trust her completely and have recommended her to friends & family.
Dr. Nguyen is a talented, caring physician who has worked hard to improve my daily life. My health issues are unusual and Dr. Nguyen has taken the time to understand and treat those issues. I really appreciate the effort my physician has taken to help me and my family.
Dr. Nguyen is an amazing and caring doctor. She communicated clearly and shows sympathy towards patients.
The provider was friendly and did not make me wait a long time The provider talked a mile a minute, so it was difficult to understand what she was saying. Also, I would express a concern and she would cut in and I did not get to finish
this is the best doctor ever. I have seen a lot of doctors in my life, and she is by far the best one that I have ever had. I wish that all doctors were like her. she is brilliant, inspirational, supportive, understanding. she goes over and beyond. she cares. I thank God that she is my doctor.
Very Good
I could not be more confident in the care and advice I receive from Dr. Nguyen. I respect her opinion, and she in turn respects me and trusts me to tell her honestly about my symptoms. She always listens and, even more importantly, she always has a potential solution up her sleeve.
Dr. Linda Nguyen is wonderful. She is the first GI specialist who was able to help me, after 20 years of suffering. She is extremely knowledgable, well-prepared, experienced and concerned. She really cares about my well being, and she took the time to answer all of my questions and provide me with the information that would be most helpful to me. I am very happy that she is my doctor.
Exceptional.
I have referred others to Dr. Nguyen. I think she is the finest doctor I have ever seen. She was able to diagnose my problem in one visit, where other doctors had failed for years to figure it out. Aside from her exceptional skill level, she is compassionate and caring. A real "peach"!
Dr. Nguyen listened to my concerns, was helpful and informative. I have great confidence in her.
Dr. Nguyen is wonderful and I also want to compliment the fellow, Dr. Gottfried, as well for his friendliness, courtesy and patience in reviewing my test results/symptoms with me. In particular, both explained things really well and made me feel like I was included in decisions about my treatment plan. To put it another way - it was such a great appointment that I didn't mind the wait :)
Even came back when I had another question
Everything was fabulous. wish I had criticism so there could be improvement but it's perfect the way it is.
I am moving out of state and will still see doctor. She is that good.
Dr. Linda Nguyen is the best doctor I've ever had! I trust her completely w/my care.
Not prepared or sensitive to seriousness of patient illness.
Dr. Nguyen is GREAT
Talked about a condition and a medicine I knew nothing about and did not explain either. Did not tell me how the medicine would help my on-going issue.
Dr. Nguyen has changed my life I owe my current quality of life to her.
I cannot speak more highly about Dr. Nguyen. She diagnosed me with a disease after years of symptoms. I trust her with my health completely.
It's my first time to meet Dr. Linda Nguyen and immediately I felt that I was in very good hands. She provided me with the information that I needed and was very attentive when I shared with her my issues. I trust her fully with any medical decisions that she will suggest. All of these, she did in such a caring way.
Dr Linda Nguyen has been my doctor for years. She knows about my problem and worked through all the procedures to diagnostic my problem. And I also see that she cares for my wellbeing. She's the best and I wouldn't think of anyone else who can provide me better care.
Very impressed!
Dr. Linda Nguyen is an excellent provider who always solves my difficult GI problems!
Great doctor A+.
I have been to other doctors in this specialty. This doctor was by far the most knowledgeable and helpful.
Care rooms are clean and open for more use by physician and patient. Physician every knowledgeable and professional.
She was nice, explained everything in detail, and had a few ideas that no other doctor has come up with.
Dr. Linda Nguyen & Dr. Emily Walker were outstanding. I felt heard & confident they would be able to diagnose & resolve my issues. This after previously seeing several physicians who could not.
Overall, a very good experience. Sensitivity to emotional concerns also addressed
they always care about you
Both the dr. and medical student were very helpful and friendly.
Dr. Linda Nguyen is outstanding!!
So grateful to be back w/Dr. Nguyen and not Mayo Clinic Rochester MN!
Dr. Nguyen is THE BEST!
Dr. Linda Nguyen is an excellent doctor, she deals with my complicated case with compassion and professionalism. She always takes the time to do something carefully and completely. She is willing to think outside the box and go the extra mile with trying to help me. This doctor is the best !
Dr. Nguyen spent a lot of time with me going over the issues very thoroughly and compassionately
Dr. Nguyen just keeps prescribing different medications each visit without getting to the root of what is causing the problem. Does not seem to care much about patient.
Provided a very balanced perspective with a lot of options to allow individual input.
love my Dr.
I was just diagnosed with gastroparesis. She quickly asked about symptoms and provided medication for that. She answered most of my questions but we didn't get to discuss too much about next steps or what I can expect and how to deal with new condition. I did have lots of questions (to be fair) but traveling 2 hours each way for an appt. you hope for more time to understand & deal with this new condition. The doctor was very good at answering what questions we did have time for.
Dr. Nguyen is excellent. She spent a lot of time with us in a relaxed, professional manner. I would wholeheartedly recommend her to others.
I really like Dr. Nguyen a lot!
Dr. Nguyen is excellent - good communication, compassionate and realistic.
Good.
I truly appreciate Dr. Nguyen's compassion & the time she takes everytime I see her.
I do not get a sense of compassion from this provider. Presents without interest or passion for patients and her profession. I asked simple questions and did not get a detailed response for me to understand further.
Dr. Nguyen has consistently been an excellent doctor and has always tried to think of many ways to help me. She has not given up on me when other have.
Dr. Linda Nguyea was amazing she was informative about my diagnosis & medications. I did not feel rushed. She took her time to answer all my questions & that I understood everything.
The PA spent a lot of time with me many questions, Dr. Nyugen only a short time. While the information they provided me was helpful, it also felt I was pre-diagnosed before I got there because I have the chronic conditions-extremely frustrating.
Dr. Nguyen is good.
Dr. Nguyen kind, listened to me, explained option and was generally very good!
Dr. Nguyen is a wonderful and compassionate doctor, after being very sick for a year she was able to diagnois me in that one visit and order test immediately. I have feel 100% better and I owe it all to Dr. Nguyen. Thank you for helping me when no one in my county was able to.
My doctor has a great deal of knowledge and keeps up with what's happening in the field. She alerts of new developments and tells me what they are and how they will work. I am crazy about her.
best doctor in the business
Doctor seems intelligent, but was very rushed & most of the appointment was with the fellow & NP. Didn't have enough time for all my questions or to review the treatments suggested. I didn't get a full understanding of why certain medications/treatments were being suggested or how they would work (or if there are any conflicts with the medicines I already take). Also, doctor didn't/was unable to tell me what my problem is/define the diagnosis.
Dr. Nguyen addressed all of my medical concerns and is very accessible to me, even though I live in Hawaii and only see her once a year.
excellent Doctor I wouldn't go anywhere else
Dr. Nguyen is an excellent doctor who has a sharp understanding of digestive problems. She listens and I particularly like that she is so willing to customize your treatment based on your individual problems. She leaves no stone unturned in trying to identify exactly what is creating your problems.
The doctor was great. Answered all my questions, explained her plan and was very kind. Everything you could want in a doctor.
Dr Nguyen was so rude, cold and inconsiderate of my needs and even walked out without ending the conversation. I have been a patient of Dr Nguyen for many years but I would never recommend her to anyone again. She has the worst patient concern I have ever experienced in over 50 doctors I have seen.
I especially liked how the doctor focused on my questions & concerns instead of typing on the computer it is a very good idea to have someone dictate & type for provider.
She seemed ot be dismissive of my condition and impatient.
I have been having my yearly check up with my care provider for many years. She has always been pleasant and caring.
Dr. Nguyen listened carefully to my experience, had looked at my 8-year-old record on a similar issue from Kaiser before the appointment, and was clear about her reasons for recommendations.
I have already recommended Dr. Nguyen to others. She is a great doctor, very caring and extremely capable.
Excellent Doctor I wouldn't go to anyone else. She is caring and thinks outside the box.
Dr. Nguyen has been there for me through a very difficult time with my health. I have no words to describe how important this has been to me.
Dr. Nyguyen was extremely helpful and informative. I will continue seeking her advice and expertise for my condition. I'm so thankful to have met her.
I have nothing but good things to say about Dr. Nguyen. She takes time, answers questions well and even types in the computer what is being discussed including instructions for patient. Upon check-out these are printed out. You leave other doctors wondering what he/she wanted you to do, but then you're to embarrassed to call the office back for clarification.
Dr. Nguyen was one of three care providers I saw and my complaint was not in her field. She ruled out internal issues.
the whole experience was great the doctor was great
Excellent, Dr. I am so grateful for the outstanding care Dr. Nguyen gives.
Very good experience. Gave me good information that other Doctors missed.
Dr Nguyen and Elizabeth took time to explain to me all my questions and concerns. I know my case is complicated,but I feel like I am her only patient,she is not on a rush! She look so angelic-A heaven sent!Feels like my IBS symptoms is gone!So thankful I was referred to her.I can't ask for more.RN - Michelle/Bump returns my call all the time and on time!So knowledgeable/friendly and using C-I care on the phone! Excellent teamwork !Hats off to all! Keep it up!
All good took time to explain what was happening.
I can't say enough good things about this doctor.
Concise in the short time together would have liked more time & details.
The appointment went well, however the doctor asked if I had any questions giving me the impression she would be difficult to talk to once I left the office. The test I am having is scheduled for June. It's hard to anticipate questions regarding test results or future concerns.
Excellent.
There should be a 'don't know' column to this survey.
I am grateful to have been referred to Dr Nguyen. She is a brilliant caring physician.
very knowledgable and very personable
Very attentive!!
Dr. Nguyen and Lizabeth are awesome!
She knew her stuff and informed me of testing needed & what to do going forward.
Great & helpful experience.
Feel I get adequate care but still concerned something is being missed. I am no better.
I think Dr. L Nguyen is the best! She has help me so much to understand my health issue & how to deal with it and make a better life style change.
Dr. N was great - wish I had a bit more time with her. Her diagnosis has helped change my life! The RN was great!
Dr. L. Nguyen is the best doctor I've worked with yet! I was referred to her because she is considered the best by another colleague.
Dr. Nguyen is awesome! She explains everything clearly and makes sure I understand.
I already have referred her.
As always the staff was courteous and friendly.
I appreciate the amount of time spent with me by both the nurse and Dr. Nguyen - Thank you.
All around great staff. Very caring and helpful.
She's too hard to get into, she's booked too far in advance.
