He's professional, on time, and to the point. His "bedside manner" as a Doctor is top notch! One of the best I've ever experienced in my lifetime. Yes, he's that good.
Dr. Nguyen is very professional. He He knows medications well and is conservative in his treatment approach. He will not overmedicate but he will prescribe if medicinal treatment is appropriate. He has patience and does not frustrate easily working well with adolescents. His current location is far for us to travel but we choose to make the drive in order to continue treatment with him. You will not be disappointed.

Outstanding. Highly recommended!
DR Ngyuen is the best Dr ever! I have been a patient of his for quite sometime and he has always been so patient and understanding with me. I highly recommend him
Dr. Nguyen was very kind, he listened to all my concerns and answered all my questions, I never felt rushed. First visit was well over an hour long and he made sure to address all my concerns, then followed up with written instructions. He also made sure I was aware he was available for any othe questions I might have. I've never met a psychiatrist like Dr. Nguyen.
Very caring & concerned doctor. And he really a wonderful doctor. I'always feel heard Whalen I leave his office.
Dr. Nguyen was very easy to talk to and listened to me attentively, and clearly explained his diagnosis and treatment plan. He is very knowledgeable as well. I highly recommend him.
Friendly and informative easily related to my 15 yo son
So glad I found this doctor.
Always gives hope for whatever your dealing with and keeps you on the path for success.
Dr. Nguyen is very knowledgeable, respectful and caring. We appreciated how he took the time to get to know us (family) and to explain about the diagnosis and the medications.
Great dr. Very easy to talk to. Made me feel very comfrtable. I would decently recimend him.
It was very informative and provided a lot of insight. He provided a space to ask questions, and gave thorough answers.
Excellent experience all around. It was so refreshing to spend time with a doctor who genuinely cares!
I think my visit with the doctor was appropriate well-timed on time and we'll examine and a little point for the doctor I don't know if I told you or not but while I was at the Salvation Army they beg me to see you and I told myself that I would never do that and I think it's funny now that I'm not at the Salvation Army and I'm where I'm at in life that I still found the way back or something on the way back for me to meet with you one way or another the plans that were at hand still work so to me I'm where I'm supposed to be and I think that it's going to work its toll
Dr Nguyen is a catalyst for positive change. He has a warm and approachable personality. He also genuinely cares about his patients. I highly recommend him. If you are looking for a psychiatrist, you should definitely book an appointment with him.
Dr. Nguyen is experienced and thorough. He doesn't just "go through the motions," he cares about his patients and I personally believe he does an excellent job of tailoring his sessions to the specific patient he's seeing. If you're looking for a doctor who will listen and actually seek to help you, rather than diagnose you as quickly as possible and send you on your way, I highly recommend Dr. Nguyen.
Amazing listener and terrific advice
Dr. Nguyen is great! He is caring and empathetic. He will get to know his patients on a more personal level - to see me as a human being in my life story. He takes pride in the knowledge of psychiatry and utilizes his experiences to find the right treatment for me. He picked the medications and dosage according to my age to help for my mood, and he informed me any possible side effects. Pricing was reasonable and it wasn't a huge difference (if you have a high deductible insurance). I highly recommend Dr. Nguyen! I thank you for being my doctor, and you have helped me get through one of my most difficult times.
The visit was great like usual, the doctor is very accessible, caring, makes you feel very confortable!
Doctor is simply highly professional and helped a lot!
Dr Nguyen was very easy to speak to; he listened carefully, made me feel comfortable and provided me with options regarding treatment. He took the time to make sure I understood the ways in which different medications would affect me, what they would target and any potential side effects. I left his office knowing I was in good hands.
A number one??
He is very professional, very soft spoken. I take two kids to him and they feel very confortable talking to him! I definetly recomend him! Some doctors could be intimidating to kids...but Dr. Nguyen is very kid friendly!
A patients dream appt., absolutely no wait. The office is easy to park, walking distance to a pharmacy, modern, brand new (all white furniture decor). He was so soft spoken, He actually listens to you, I didn't have any anxiety, I was able to bring my 4 year old son. The fee was very reasonable, I can also book appt. online. Five star rating & I have been seeing a psychiatrist my whole life. I have finally found a doctor that I can establish as a psychiatrist for the next 20 years. It was a pleasure. DF
Dr. Nguyen is an absolutely wonderful doctor. I am so glad I chose him after reading the many positive reviews on this site. He spent plenty of time really listening to me at my first appointment before explaining treatment methods thoroughly. If you're looking for a compassionate, caring, highly intelligent psychiatrist, I promise you, you will be extremely happy with Dr. Nguyen.
He is great! have been working with him for more than a year!
Dr. Enguyen treats me with kindness, compassion. I feel fortunate he is my doctor.
Disappointed. Had seen him a couple of times and loved him. But he didn't want to see my daughter anymore. Yes, her case is a challenge. But his rejection came from left field. He's not as open minded as he seems. And it hurts me to write this.
It was great as always
Dr Nguyen always takes the time to listen, actually listen, not checking his phone, eating breakfast, etc... He is there for you and only you and always gives you his entire attention. He goes above and beyond to make sure his patients are receiving excellent care.
Best doctor ever!!!!!!
The doctor is very good, very happy to see him for my daughter!
Dr. Hung was great! This was my daughter's first visit. He was a great listener, educator and very well informed about my daughters problems. He was very helpful during this difficult time and discussed the various options that are available for her. I would highly recommend him as I found him to be very knowledgeable about ADD/ADHD/anxiety symptoms and treatment options.
It was a pleasure to meet this wonderful Doctor. He took the time to listen and to offer great advice. We will definitely be back to see him!
My visit, as always, was comforting. I know that I will be treated thoughtfully and kindly.
Dr. Nguyen is always very professional and listens to all my concerns.
He will be my doctor for a long time! and that alone is saying a lot for me! He knows his stuff..and understands you as a person and helps bring the best out of you.. I 100% trust his direction and guidance to help me live the best life i can.
Excellent very intuitive and caring.
I think Dr. Nguyen is a wonderful doctor, who cares and takes his time with his patients. He makes people feel very comfortable and you can see that he really cares. I highly recommend him!
Very professional and great advise and care
Dr. Nguyen is one of the best physicians I have had the pleasure of meeting. In your time you will find good doctors and then you will find great ones-he is a great one. Empathetic, knowledgeable, compassionate are just but a few words to describe him.
Dr. Nguyen's care and quality time are so appreciated! He is a rare doctor.
Dr Nguyen is the most personable and easy to reach doctor I have ever met! He is professional, yet communicates effectively and makes you feel comfortable. I was actually an hour late for my first appt (they are 90 mins long) because first I drove the wrong way on the highway, I called to let him know I was running late and I was shocked because he answered the phone himself and gave me directions! And then I couldn't find the building, so I was freaking out and he answered his phone again and spent 15 minutes on the phone with me, trying to help me find the building! He is very patient and understanding. He does not take insurance and made that clear to me in an email, ( but I didn't see it) and he still helped me and worked out the payment for the office visit. My last doctor had to have the money up front and wouldn't see me or even talk to me until it was paid. This doctor is awesome!
He is an excellent Doctor, very professional, and knowlegeble! Very happy to see him!
It is a stressful experience for me to meet a new doctor, however, Dr. Nguyen put me at ease right away. He listens carefully and speaks thoughtfully. I am fortunate to have found a doctor such as Dr. Nguyen.
Prompt and extremely interested in helping you feel better. The doctor is approachable and caring.

It has been an absolute pleasure being a patient of Dr. Nguyen's. Along with being extremely knowledgeable, I always leave his office feeling cared about, listened to and understood. He truly goes above and beyond to help his patients!
We went to Dr Nguyen for help with our son. He was very knowledgeable and took the time to listen to us and then explained everything thoroughly. We are very please with him and and services.
I was very comfortable with Dr. Nguyen. He is very compassionate and trustworthy.
He is good doctor . Since I'm feeling something and I go see him I'm back normal but him he is something . Just kidding he is very good come and try if you don't want you are something .
Spectacular Dr with very good diagnosis skills. Knows what to ask to get to the root of a problem and when reaching the root, gives a good description of what and why so you have a good understanding.
He was very helpful and explained well.
We drove from west palm beach to weston fl 45 miniuts, and paid out of our pockets because nearly all the doctors on our medicaid insurance had bad reputations. The three we tried would not listen or read the history on our ill daughter who badly needed help. After a year we researched and found dr nguyen. After this initial visit we could see we finally found a doctor who reviewed our childs history, formulated a logical and very common sense idea, and had a treatment plan that made sense. He knew our daughter and her history much better then all three previous doctors combined after one visit. Pray that she gets better.
He is by far the best doctor I have seen in years I have been through so many in the Tri-County area and many of them seem to have bad bedside manner or just don't seem to understand me. They not able to put their self in my shoes, I love how this doctor thinks outside the box and gives you a chance to voice yourself so he can give you the best feedback possible to help you and to work with you on medication management. ??????????
I'm moving out of the state and will miss Dr. Nguyen greatly! He is an amazing and caring person who will go out of his way for the well being of his patients. I would highly recommend him!
Dr. Nguyen is an amazing psychiatrist. I had a crisis with my daughter and left a message and he returned my call in a reasonable time and I could not believe how he listened, showed compassion and offered great advice.
This was the first visit with Dr. Nguyen. He was very professional. He listened to everything we had to say, didn't make us feel rushed at all. I would definitely recommend him. He seemed like a very nice guy and knowledgable about our problems.
Very polite and understanding doctor. Works well and compromises medication management to best fit my needs.
He is very compassionate doctor. But he works at rehab so he really don't understand some people needs some patient really do have panic attacks and anti social disorder that they require benzoazapin for long time.
Very professional always on time great bedside manner
All I can ever say is, this Doctor is amazing, "one of a kind"! Every visit goes smoothly, & he goes above & beyond to make sure my health is taken care of. He's very caring & understanding, Now that I have met the best of the best, I can rest at ease that I never again have to search for another doctor. He's taken extremely good care of me & all I can do is keep being thankful that he is in my life. I highly recommend him to anyone!
Today was only my 2nd visit & he was extremely prompt, & quick to take care of my issue. Prescribed the medicine I needed & was very caring, polite, & compassionate to my situation! Again, such a wonderful Doctor! I feel truly blessed to have found a caregiver that is top knotch!
Always very professional and productive!!!
He is extremely friendly, and understanding. He made me feel comfortable (which no doctors can do!), very easy to talk to & helpful. I am more then satisfied and thankful to have found such a wonderful doctor!!!
I highly recommend Dr. Nguyen.
Dr. Nguyen is very professional and provided a seamless transition for me as a new patient. I move a lot so I have had to see a variety of psychiatrists over the years - Dr. Nguyen has given me one of best, if not the best, first impression. His office is in a great location (very bright, clean, easy to get to, park etc.) Very happy to have found him on Zocdoc. :)
He is a real good doctor who really care for his patients.
Amazing! Very open minded, great listener, did not feel uncomfortable at all =D
Dr. Nguyen is a caring and supportive professional. I felt very comfortable with him. I was able to get an appointment quickly. He was on schedule. Very little wait time, yet he still made it a point to come out and let me know that he was aware of my presence and would be with me shortly. I would recommend Dr. Nguyen to anyone in need of psychiatric care.
Dr. Nguyen is an excellent doctor. He is very caring and interested in what is happening in the lives of his patients. Highly recommended.
Great as usual
My son is very happy with the doctor and so am I he is very easy to communicate with and he explains in a way that you can understand. I had to call him 2 times on a weekend and he responded immediately. He answers your questions and if he does not have the answer he finds out and gets back to use immediately. He is very professional, charismatic and cares about his patients.
Very very caring Dr and completely attentive to all the areas I need help in. Highly recommended!
The best psychiatrist I have ever been under care with
Dr. Nguyen is a true professional with a very caring attitude. He has been very helpful to me. I would not hesitate to recommend him.
Fabulous...we decided to increase my meds and I am looking forward to feeling less angry
I would highly recommend Dr. Nguyen.
Dr Hung, Was courteous caring and very well concerned for my care and needs. One of the best Doctors I ever treated with
Omg... Please, if you come across this doctor, your search is over! It doesn't matter what your situation is or what bad experiences you've had in your life or even with other doctors, you'll totally be in good hands. Dr. Nguyen is so professional, smart, helpful and understanding. If help is what you are truly seeking, he is the one!! He is really unlike any doctor you will ever meet. I'm so happy I found him and because of him, I am regaining parts of my life that I thought I lost forever. Grateful....
He keeps me on the straight and narrow and is a very compassionate doctor.
I only had to see the doctor twice and I am on a "as needed" basis. He helped me a lot to find out what was going on and solving my problems.
I go out of my way to see Dr. Nguyen instead of someone closer to where I live.
Dr. Nguyen is the best! He really wants to help you. He is not stuffy or snotty and never makes you feel bad that you need help. I really couldn't have gotten through some tough situations without him.
Dr. Nguyen is one of the most thorough, competent, and understanding psychiatrists I've ever had an appointment with. During my initial consultation appointment he devoted a lot of time to really getting to know me, and with that the intricacies of my psychiatric issues. He had an excellent understanding of my anxiety and depression, and how they interact with my borderline personality disorder. Dr. Nguyen thoroughly answered all of my questions and helped me make an informed choice regarding changes to my current medication therapy. His approach to psychiatric illness involves both medication and therapy, not just throwing pills at the problem as is sometimes the case. He was very professional and friendly, and has also returned my calls within a few hours. I feel like I definitely made the right choice by coming to his office. I highly recommend him!
He was great...he figured out why I am stressed, have anxiety and it was from my protein shake with stimulants in it. I definitely will stop the drink and see him in 2-3 weeks. I am so glad I saw him.
He made me feel very comfortable to talk to.
Very efficient, very friendly, and very professional.
Dr Nguyen is a wonderful doctor. I strongly recommend him.
Every visit is very productive -- I'm very glad I found Dr. Nguyen he was able to deal with my issues!!!
He's such an awesome, relatable guy, it was very easy for me to open up and talk about my problems and struggles
I think he's the best!!!!
He is very calmimg and wise beyond his years.
Dr Nguyen is fantastic!!!
