    Bariatric medicine focuses on the causes, prevention and treatment of obesity.

Would recommend Dr. Nguyen highly!

My experience with Dr. Nguyen occurred through the Breast Clinic at Heartland Health and a diagnosis of DCIS resulting in a lumpectomy with a sentinel node biopsy. The staff was caring, gentle and kind - concerned about my feelings as well as my medical condition. I felt like they were taking good care of me and I trusted them. My surgical scars are fresh, but will be hardly noticeable with time due to his skill as a surgeon. After my first visit, I left the office feeling confident about my situation and the surgery that was about to happen. Thank you Dr. Nguyen. And thank you to your staff.
