The staff were really nice. Not very professional, though.He didn't have much beside manner. He actually made me feel a bit awkward because he wouldn't look me in the eye and there were long pauses at random intervals. He gave mea mail order prescription, which is going to take a lot longer than a regular one, and it came with a flyer. It made me feel like he was only doing it to get paid.

I don't think I've ever been to a less professional medical office. The doctor seemed to be thinking of something else the entire time I was there. He failed to properly dispose of a used sharp and managed to drop it,exposed, on the ground. They even sent me home with a form to submit to the DMV with another patient's name on it. To top it all off, they charged me outrageous rates for simply telling me to go to a specialist. I'd only go here if it were my only option and even then maybe not.

My first visit at Dr. Nguyen's office. The awaiting time was a bit long (30 minutes after signing in). The check-in questionnaire that I completed prior to the visit did not seem to be transferred to the office. So the timewas doubled when I was asked to complete the same questionnaire twice in the office. Pleasant experience with the front desk staff (generally horrible in many other medical practices). Dr. Nguyen displayed great professionalism and bedside manner. Unlike other GPs I've encountered, he has been good trying to take time for his patients and being personable during the exam. Highly recommended!

Dr. Nguyen is phenomenal. He is exactly the type of doctor that I was looking for! He is VERY knowledgeable and thorough. I read that he teaches at a local university; he took his time explaining to me and to his"nurse" the importance of addressing various symptoms and issues that I was having. He is very patient and actively listens to everything that I wanted to address without rushing in and out like nearly every other doctor I've ever seen. His staff is very friendly. Although the office is small, there is still adequate space and time for the doctor to see everyone. I highly suggest making an appointment. It is a clinic, so walk-ins will have to wait a while. I live in MD and drive all the way to Falls Church to see him, because of his professionalism and attentiveness. I recommend Dr. Nguyen to everyone.

This Dr is awesome, he figured diagnosis for my issues that many PCPs didn't even think about it. He gave me the proper medications, referred me to a specialist to take car of my issue, and he explaind everything for meand gave me all the time that I needed. I am really so glad that I am his patient and he's gonna be my pcp for the rest of my life.

Dr Nguyen was a breath of fresh air! He is very knowledgeable, takes his time discussing diagnoses and issues, and doesn't rush you out the door at all. He makes sure to ensure all of your issues are discussed and solved.He remembers you in between each visit. One time he called to discuss lab results just like he said he would!

Dr. Nguyen and his Student assistant on site Jonathan Wills were both very personable and provided their professional feedback on my questions and concerns. I will definitely visit in the future should I have anything come up and need the expertiseof a primary care physician. Gelda and the front office staff were very pleasant as well.

One of the nicest doctors I've been to in the area. There was a wait, but it was 15 or 20 minutes so not bad (plus I was 15 minutes late so I can't complain). I really appreciated that he tookhis time with me, talked through the diagnoses, and didn't seem hurried at all to move on to the next patient. The nurse was very nice and efficient as well. I also REALLY appreciated that he immediately sent my prescription to my pharmacy - it was ready to pick up as soon as I got home. That's literally the first time I haven't had to deliver a prescription and wait a couple hours to pick it up again. It took him the same amount of time to send it directly that it would have taken to write it down, but saved me an extra trip. Also, parking. I'm in DC, and I'd rather drive to Virginia than spend the same amount of time on the metro. Plenty of parking. I rarely see a doctor, I usually just make an appointment on ZocDoc with whomever is available when I need to go. But I will absolutely prioritize him next time I have any issues. It's not an amazing facility, but mostly I just want a friendly, honest, and competent doctor.
