I went for a minor ailment and he was unsure of what the issue was. He asked me to get a wide variety of body tests and i was not comfortable with his replies

I am visiting my family from out of town and having been battling a flu....I found Dr. Nguyen nearby. A wonderful doctor who takes the time for new patients to review your medical history and then address your concerns and answer any questions. I highly recommend.

Felt scammed! Went there as part of my preventive care. Because he asked additional questions (which I thought were part of the preventive care consultation) he billed more to my insurance. At the front desk, they weren't honest about it either.

He was relatively thorough. Although I’d appreciate it if he would do a more thorough exam and take his time going through the motions. Also, some explanation for the he treatment would have helped.
