Dr. Nguyen is an excellent doctor in which I trust his skills and abilities completely.
Dr. Vu Nguyen is phenomenal, all around. I could not be happier with having him as my surgeon. He has amazing bed side manners, shows compassion, and is amazing in his work. His secretary is beyond friendly and has helped with many issues that arised, insurance problems, medications needed right away, she has been extremely helpful in everything.
Mostly good experience at this office. Office/Nursing staff always prompt. Sometime wait can be an issue, but mostly a good experience. Dr. is always ready to answer any questions and gives very good care.
I think Dr. Nguyen is THE BEST! Up until this point of my life, never really needed a doctor. Was diagnosed with breast cancer and Dr. Nguyen is my plastic surgeon. He is courteous, professional and shows that he really cares. ALWAYS asks if I have questions. Takes the time to talk to me. Was VERY happy w/him and his team and the surgery and entire process.
problem was not resolved
Dr. Nguyen and Christie are the best. Always helpful, always polite and professional.

Ive been goin to DrNguyen for alil over 2 1/2 years Now.. The Bed side Manner of DrNguyens Whole Staff is Exceptional..
this survey is really based on a consulting appointment before my final scans are taken (breast cancer). it was a first time visit with dr. nguyen. it was nice to meet him and he answered my questions to the best of his ability with the partial information that we currently have. I was satisfied with our appointment and will be able to further respond to these questions as we move along and communicate about my pending surgery. thank you!
My appointment was a consult. Doctors and I agreed that my plastic surgery needs would be better if postponed until my weight loss has stabilized.
Dr. Nguyen and his staff are all amazing. I am in awe of the level of expertise and professionalism that is always a part of my interactions with him or anyone on his team.
very nice and pleasant to talk to

long wait time in waiting room
Excellent Plastic Surgeon. I am very pleased with my results. I have recommended this Dr. Nguygen to many of my friends and family members.

Dr Nguyen is an amazing doctor! He is extremely professional and kind. I could not be happier with the care he has provided to me!
Dr. Nyugen is unbelievably caring and compassionate and respecrful. These qualities combined with his surgical skills make him an A++++ physician. I am truly blessed that he is my plastic surgeon.
My experience thus far with Dr. Nguyen has been very good. He and his staff seem interested in helping me with post surgery pain and functioning issues and have always been courteous and professional. My only criticism is that it has taken five months from Dr. Nguyen's prescription of Botox for pain and muscle contractiions until the shots were actually given. Although,this was no doubt complicated by my insurance company, that turn around seemed unreasonable. Otherwise, it has so far been an excellent experience.
I would highly recommend family and friends to Dr.Nguyen. He performed breast reconstructive surgery after my breast cancer diagnosis. I had excellent results. He is very compassionate and an excellent surgeon.
I was seen for a annual, follow-up visit. I have no pain. My questions were answered. There should be a comment for not applicable(n/a) as I do not feel all of these questions applied to my visit.
He is the best doctor I have and I have seen many in the last three years!
The Dr and his staff were very understanding and helpful
