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!

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! :)
