The place was very nice. I arrived early and was still seen right away. I was asked to see the doctor before I could even fill out my forms. The doctor was nice and professional. Very quick but still informative. Just what I want out of a doctor.

The doctor was very thorough and great at explaining things. I went for a general check as well as to ask about a rash. He diagnosed me right away, thoroughly examined my body for abnormal moles, and helped me obtain the most cost-efficient treatment since I was paying out of pocket. Great doc, great experience. Will definitely be back for all of my derm. needs.

I instantly loved this place! I previously was going to another dermatology office and was very unimpressed with the Drs and staff. I was so impressed the moment I walked into this office! The staff was fantastic, I was seen right away, and Dr. Vu Nguyen was so thorough, pleasant, and so incredibly helpful in explaining everything! I will be recommending him to everyone I know!

In addition to the 5 star rating above, I had a really good experience in Dr. Vu's office also because the office itself is very nice. Spacious, very clean, kind of modern so it helps me to relax once I got there.

Dr. Nguyen's office (Carlsbad-Vista Dermatology) is very impressive - clean, decorated beautifully, and utilizing computerized patient record-keeping in the treatment rooms. On their office's website, I was able to download the new patient paperwork and complete it before my initial appointment - what a time-saver! At my first appointment, the receptionist was very welcoming and friendly - anticipating my name as I came in. She was also very efficient in processing my insurance information and patient forms. Dr. Nguyen and the nurses were very friendly as well. I felt immediately comfortable with Dr. Nguyen's bedside manner and personality - he was very easy to talk to. He addressed my concerns and explained treatment options. He was able to proceed with an in-office treatment right away, and was so gentle that I had absolutely no discomfort. The nurse who assisted him was very nice, and took time to explain my after-care/at-home treatment, and sent me home with an information sheet and prescription creme samples (awesome!). Overall, I am extremely happy with my visit, and I am looking forward to returning to Dr. Nguyen's office in the future! Thanks to everyone at Carlsbad-Vista Dermatology! :)
