  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

Nice and warm doctor

I've only seen the doctor once, but based on that visit, I feel like Dr.Nguyen is very warm, takes the time to listen to you and truly wants to help you. I made a good decision making him my primary doctor .

highly unsatisfied

I had an appt with him for physical. When I arrived at his office, he asked me if I fasted. I told him if I was to fast, then why didn't he tell me when I made the appt. He blamed the receptionist who scheduled the appt. You can't blame them; it's still the doctor's responsibility to inform his patients. So I had to come back the following week to pull my blood. When I back the following week, I asked the Quest nurse how many hours you had to fast out of curiosity. She told me that for the type of blood test I was doing, 8-12 hours of fasting was required. I told her it hasn't been 8 hours This is another blunder by Dr.Nguyen. He just told me to fast but never specified HOW MANY HOURS. This doctor does not communicate with his patients and take time to address their concerns or questions. He just comes in for about 5 minutes or so and leaves without telling you much. I already changed my primary doctor.

Staggeringly bad

I went to AdvantageCare flatiron after seeing another doctor for years because my employer health plan changed. What I encountered at AdvantageCare Flatiron was a beautifully decorated office and staggeringly, stupidly bad care. Dr. James Nguyen never did anything to address a single issue I brought to his attention for the year and a half that I was his patient. He either dismissed my concerns or told me he would have to refer to problem to another doctor. My health problems, bladder spasms and carpal tunnel, are completely normal for someone my age, and there are a range of treatments for both. All this practice did was refer and refer and refer. They wasted my time and did NOTHING to help me. James Nguyen and the entire AdvantageCare Flatiron Practice are a bunch of incompetents. Stay away.

Confused

Dr. James Nguyen lacks attentiveness. Last year, I went to him to obtain health forms for school and he never sent them. This year I call for an RX refill and he sends them to the wrong pharmacy. Also, he once schedules a 2week follow-up for one of my prescriptions, and when I came for the follow-up it was pretty much: "So no problem? Ok you're good, bye." How much money did my insurance paid you on top of my 30$ copay for you to tell me that? Disappointing :(

Poor Care

This doctor is more concerned with seeing 25 patients per day (the minimum MPG ask of each doctor) than treating you with proper care and accuracy. He can have a bad attitude when you request referrals for specialist.
