Dr. Nguyen exudes confidence. I have a complicated medical situation happening, but he gives me hope that he will find the correct treatment solution and fix the problem. He is kind, thorough, and eager to help. I also appreciate his responsiveness to messages. He is quick to answer questions and welcomes communication outside of appointment times, for which I am grateful. He is a great doctor, and I'm glad to have his help with my medical issues.

SHC Patient, Sep 2018

Dr. Nguyen really listened to me as a whole person and showed interest and care throughout our conversation and exam. I felt accepted for who I am and treated as patient, coached as well as being an active participant in decision-making. if only the rest of Stanford could learn from this type of engagement, which is truly Patient care - not just being seen (and not heard). Dr. Nguyen really cares and I am grateful!
