I feel Dr.Tung was extremely pleasant. However I feel there needs to be help in other areas, such as a lack of payment options. I was told I needed to pay cash for my visit and I needed to go acrossthe street to withdraw money from an ATM. Not something I was in the mood for while I was feeling ill. The waiting area could use some love as well. Due to Dr.Tungs professionalism and people skills, I will be returning.

Dr.Nguyen was fantastic. The receptionist was very rude upon my arrival, maybe bc I was a little late but there are ways to talk to people. Her tone of voice and facial expressions made we want to leave but I'm glad I stayed bc the doctor was great.

Dr Tung was very kind and helpful... He was very informative, and listened to everything I was concerned about. I believe that he is a very wise, and understanding person. The wait time was a bit excessive. Over 50 minutes... Butit is a small office, and there were many patients today. Be sure to arrive early because parking is a challenge.

Doctor Nguyen is kind and understanding, but his whole staff are the WORST people I have encountered. They barely speak English and are so unbelievably disorganized, I honestly think that a monkey could have been trained to do a better job.The Dr. is also unorganized, he completely forgot to fill out one of the forms I had sent him, and it was IMPOSSIBLE to contact him. I faxed over forms about 10 times, apparently none went through. The awful, rude, receptionists told me "well no fax no work why you even try that" AFTER they told me to fax the docs over. They told me to email him, and so I emailed the center about 3 times, wiht no response. I called everyday telling them my situation, they would barely answer and tell me to "calm down" repeatedly when I asked when the forms will be filled and faxed over. They promised to have Dr. Tung call me back-he never did, and then he went on vacation for two weeks. I also asked if they billed the insurance and their response was "I have no idea don't ask me" multiple times. I have never had a worse experience with a doctor, and I hope no one ever has to subject themselves to the incompetence of the staff. I honestly am at a loss of what to do now, but I am so incredibly frustrated at this Dr. that I truly don't want anyone to have to be his patient! All of his patients are Vietnamese and the staff barely speaks English, and completely stare at you/treat you entirely differently if you are not Vietnamese. I cried multiple times because of the awful experiences with the awful doctor and staff.

One thing I don't like about Dr. Tung's office is that he only takes cash and no credit/debit card. This is a big hassle if you do not have cash. Then you have to go find an atm, get cash and then get started.

Serivce oriented front office staff, doctor was knowledgeable, friendly, and easy to talk to. cash only, which is something to consider. Says it's due to the clientele they serve, who are mainly Vietnamese speaking. That said everyone I encountered during visit has good command of English.

Dr. Nguyen was incredibly sweet and down-to-earth. I was a little overwhelmed by the new, labyrinth-style office and was surprised to learn that they are CASH ONLY. However, I really enjoyed chatting with the doctor and I will definitely go back to him.

Doctor Nguyen was very friendly and helpful. My visit was fast and effective. At the time of my visit, most of his front desk staff spoke primarily vietnamese, which made it slightly harder to communicate, since I don't speak it.

At first I felt a little uncomfortable because I am hispanic and literally every single person in there (and it was packed) was asian and speaking their language. One of the guys seemed shy for some reason and it almost seemedlike he was training though. So for a second I thought maybe I should look for another doctor. But as soon as I spoke with the doctor everything changed. He made me feel very comfortable and was very professional. He knew what he was talking about and gave a lot of advise. I definitely will be coming back.
