I was blown away by Dr. Nguyen! Not only did she check my child for the issue I thought he was having, but she did a thorough exam to rule out any other issues and then took ample time to answer all my questions in a compassionate, easy-to-understand way. She listened to me and we had an informative conversation about the past, present and future of my child's medical care. She was a wonderful doctor and I can't recommend her highly enough!Providence Patient
