Dr. Nguyen is absolutely wonderful and caring. He always explains everything in terms I can understand. I am hard of hearing and my daughter is stationed in Germany with her husband and we FaceTime so that she hears what is going on during my appointments. Dr. Nguyen always makes her feel welcomed and answers any questions she might have.
