Dr. Nguyen always takes the time to explain my cardiac condition thoroughly. She listens to my concerns and answers all my questions. She is both very knowledgeable and caring.
I was very impressed by the service received. Most doctors run late and rush you through the appointment but the staff was on time, very thorough, and made sure I left confident.
Dr Lan is a great adult congenital doctor, she doesnt necessarily push prescription meds to treat problems.
Dr Nguyen was excellent! For being my first appointment with her, she was very prepared, insightful, and thorough. Dr Nguyen did a great job of not sugar coating my diagnosis while also giving me peace of mind about my current health. She answered all the questions I could think of and did not give the feeling as if she needed to run to get next appointment. Thanks for a great appointment Dr Nguyen, looking forward to my check-up next year!
Dr. Nguyen is outstanding, and I am very grateful to have her as my cardiologist. She is always patient, and listens to any questions or concerns that I have. She is also very kind, and one can tell she genuinely cares about her patients. I am applying to the integrated cardiothoracic surgery program through the University of Pittsburgh, and would love to be a part of such a fantastic team.
love this dr, she truly cares for her patients, always compassionate and understanding with questions and concerns
Dr. LAN N. is always thorough and accommodating.
love this doctor and everyone we came in contact with. awesome people!
Dr. Nuyen did not rush my visit and she listened attentively to what my complaints and questions were. She offered information in language I could easily understand.
Dr Neguyn and her staff always take the best care of me, i have been a patient of Childrens hospital all my life and would not want to go anywhere else unless recommend by them.
Even though I was born with Down Syndrome, all of the staff asked me the questions, not my mom. I like that respect.
Overall, it was a good experience. I was pretty impressed how quickly I was in and out.
I never have an issue with my appointments at the Heart Institute. The general staff and Dr.Nguyen are always phenomenal. Dr. Nguyen has excellent bedside manner and is very patient and thorough in her explanations. However the fellow attending my appointment seemed to question the validity of my concerns and was somewhat dismissive. His demeanor definitely caught me off guard.
A wonderful doctor
Dr. Lan was outstanding. she was thorough and listened carefully to me. Her plan was well-considered.
I really like my doctor . she explains everything very well and always answers my questions. she speaks very good English. I was afraid I wouldn't be able to understand her. But I was wrong and I hope I can continue to see her throughout my years. especially whenever I would need surgery.
very kind and listens to what you have to say
The best thing I can say about the doctor is that she listens to what you're saying about your health and how you're feeling about it and then makes her judgement
very pleased with Dr Nguyen. she is always very professional and attentive, shows a genuine concern for my heart condition
i was very upset that i had to wait 50 min in the patient room before i seen the provider. When the provider finally did enter the room, she offered no apology for the long wait.
the doctor was excellent! she was so nice and very easy to talk to. I truly liked that she cared and wanted me to know what she was explaining. she want out and found a model of the heart in a different room and showed me what was done to my heart and other things.
Dr. Nguyen is always willing to take time to listen to my questions and concerns and to thoroughly explain my the congenital heart condition.
I have great respect for the doctor and staff.
Nothing but Positive ......Dr. Nguyen was wonderful to me and made me feel so positive and happy. I felt so good when I left the office. Yes it was a good visit. But Dr. Nguyen makes me feel like I am in the best hands. I am so grateful.
great doctor very professional and courteous
This provider took extraordinary care in interpreting my previous records and test results relating to care I'd received at another facility. This was my first visit to this specialist but I will continue my care with her at this office.
My experience was pleasant and informative. I felt confident when I left.
Dr Nguyen is competent, committed & caring in her interaction with patient/family.
I know that this doctor is busy but we spent more time with the PA than with the doctor. She was in the exam room with us approximately 10 minutes. I would have appreciated more time with her actually sitting and talking with us. I know that clinic days are busy but it seemed like all she did was verify the PA's finding and spent no time talking with us or with my son.
I had initiated being seen by a new cardiologist because I thought my 'hometown' cardiologist was good, but was overlooking my health. It was a relief to have a 'fresh set of eyes' on my cardiac care.
Dr. Nguyen, as always, was very competent, professional and compassionate towards my son.
my daughter stated after the visit that she like dr.nguyen
thankful they answered my questions appreciated their time
Dr. Nguyen was fantastic. This was my first time seeing her, and she is definitely the best cardiologist I've ever had (I've had several due to moving and changing health insurance plans, etc). She was very thorough with her examination, asked me a lot of questions and always responded kindly/respectfully, and she made sure that I got to ask all of the questions I had for her as well. She also brought up things for me to consider in my future, and asked me how much I knew about my own condition--for some reason none of my other cardiologists ever bothered to have these conversations with me. I really appreciated that she was concerned enough about my future to bring up these topics.
This visit left me feeling completely informed of my health issues as it relates to this specialist, I cannot say that is always the case with my UPMC specialists. All of the complicated terms were described in a way I could understand and all my concerns regarding my health were discussed and clarified.
all were very nice and well mannered
Great Care Provider!
I felt my experience for this visit was good
Very good provider. Listened to all my concerns. Very thorough. Good personality.
everyone was very courteous and explained everything thoroughly and did not seem to rush the appointment time
I am very impressed by this physician and her staff
Dr. Nguyen was great. She provided clear feedback on my questions and clearly laid out the path forward.
very happy with Dr. Nguyen and the staff
received excellent care
I am always pleased with Dr Nguyen and all of the other care providers as well as staff. They show so much motivation to ensure that my health is well looked after, and are so polite, warm, and helpful. I am really happy to have Dr. Nguyen as my provider.
THIS WAS AN EXCELLENT EXPERIENCE
By far the BEST Dr. I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with.
Great experience Excellent Doctor!
I am incredibly thankful for the time and attention Dr. Nguyen gave me. I had a lot of questions coming into this appointment. She took time to gather extensive medical history, kindly answered any question I had and even offered suggestions for improving my care with my PCP (for example, I did not know there was an extended release version of a medication I'm on, which would make taking it easier vs 3 times a day).
These check ups should not take over 3 hours. I was in the room for over an hour waiting after the echo. My time is valuable too.
every thing was good
very knowledgeable and helpful
Excellent knowledge of my heart condition and explained, treatment, care, and prognosis very well.
I did not feel as if the provider addressed my concern about other testing that I feel could show a problem that's causing blood pressure issues. instead I felt she just gave me yet another pill and sent me on my way. As a person who is under 40 and already on 14 different meds a day, I don't want more meds. if they aren't necessary, I want to know what's causing my issues or at least know my Dr. has attempted to find the reason before prescribing another medication.
Always a good experience. They make me feel like they have my back.....or in this case, heart!
great service great provider
I liked all the doctors, nurses, and others who cared for me.
Dr. Nguyen was a very good and knowledgeable Dr. she talked to me about my condition to where I could understand.
I feel really lucky having Dr. Nguyen. She is a brilliant doctor, very practical and to the point, yet she is really easy to talk to and does not make you feel silly for not understanding things. I felt very respected by her and the nurse, Patricia. I felt comfortable talking about the different aspects of my life and how they relate to my health care. I would recommend them to anyone.
We were an hour late. I read the text wrong that was sent to confirm our appt. I called and they said to still come in. They took us right away. No waiting time what so ever. Everyone was extremely nice. Did not show any aggrevation towards us for being late. Were extremely courteous and kind.
Dr. Nguyen has a very nice manor to her. She took time to explain to me my condition and painted a road map for future treatment.
New heart doctor, seems to understand my health needs
Dr Nyugen always takes ample time to talk through concerns and has my best interest at heart for both short and long term. I am extremely pleased with her care and am grateful for her expertise. I'd recommend her to anyone.
