I really miss Dr. Nguyen. It wasn't until she left Columbia last year that I've come to realize how good I had it. I have now seen 2 other doctors here and none can remotely compare to the kindness and expertise she had. She always spent FOREVER with me because I had such bad acne that wasn't responding to the usual stuff. My acne is better, but I come for annual checks and rashes and such and the other doctors don't seem as good. Sorry to see her go.
Dr. Nguyen is one of the best doctors out there. You can tell she really cares and will go the extra mile. She has a cheerful demeanor and more importantly, she really knows her stuff. I was told she is not taking new patients because she is so popular and busy but if you are lucky enough to get in, she is highly recommended!
Awful - don't bother! I scheduled an appointment for a mole changing in appearance a full 4 months ahead of time! Then her office called after 2 months to inform me that she was not accepting new patients, and would cancel my appointment. Why did they schedule the appointment to begin with? Not a way to treat people, as far as I am concerned.
You should consider a ZERO Star rating. The positive reviews may not be legitimate. I didn't rate the 3 of the categories because 1 star was TOO GOOD for her. Ease of appointment should have tipped me off. Never was I able to schedule a visit within a week. The waiting room had only 1 other patient (it's a group practice). He was taken almost immediately upon my arrival and I was taken 5 minutes (or less) later. Her assistant was personable, asked some preliminary questions, gave me a gown. The doctor breezed in about 2 min. after. Cheerful, energetic, and in a tearing hurry. I handed her a 1-page extensive history of skin, hair, and nail conditions, many of which dated back to childhood (I am now 57). She glanced at it, said, "Oh, chilblains!" And that was the end of it. Never looked at the forms I filled out reiterating the content of my history. She gave me a rush job exam, barely checking out anything (I am literally covered with a variety of skin abnormalities.) "Oh, they're all skin tags and they tend to increase with age." (For the record, I did my homework in advance of my visit. One particular website provided a list of skin conditions--there were 80 screens full! About 20 per screen. Ever hear of differential diagnosis, Dr. Nguyen?) She didn't spend 5 minutes checking me over, though she did write a prescription for sebaceous cysts (like acne without the inflammation) on my face that only appeared a year ago and are increasing. She couldn't tell me what the cause might be. (Because she doesn't know anything about cutaneous manifestations of internal systemic disorders. That was my impression. I was asking too many questions she couldn't answer.) The best part: When I checked the status of my insurance claim, I discovered she billed them $350! Multiply that by 12 for her "hourly rate." I am tempted to write to the utilization management department about this. No wonder insurance premiums and co-pays continue to rise, given the flagrant waste by some of our medical providers. Final question/comment: What is to prevent a friend or relative from writing a good review?
