I used to be a patient of Dr. Nyguen's and the care I received was horrendous. She misdiagnosed me for years causing life-long issues. During the time I was under her "care" she never once questioned if she had gotten the diagnosis right. Instead, she blamed me and accused my family of lying. I'm on medical disability for life thanks to this doctor. After I left Stanford, I went to county and within two weeks I had a proper diagnosis & a team of GIs was assembled. My county GIs saved my life & gave me a quality of life I never thought possible. Despite have a solid legal case against her, I wound up not suing due to the statute of limitations being up. My family wanted to years earlier however I was so ill I was barely lucid. Be very wary of this doctor & her nurse practitioner Coka. Dr. Nyguen could not care less about her patients' well being.
Still no better

Referred myself to this doctor as I was continuing to have GI problems the local doctors basically gave up on. Had to wait forever for an appt. she ordered some tests that could only be done at Stanford, over 2 hours away. More waiting for results. New meds started, not much improvement. More new meds, no improvement. Next follow up was with the PA, now recommending biofeedback which, again, not available in my area. Don't even see the doctor again for yet another 2 months! I continue to be sick just popping pills every day. Just too much time between appts when you are sick and no one locally can help you with a diagnosis. She is probably a great doctor and maybe my case just does not warrant much urgency. I just know I am absolutely no better and it is scary.

Dr. Nguyen is wonderful. While I only see her for a short amount of time, she made my day. She is really caring, kind and willing to step in to help. Sadly, due to insurance, she is not my "official" doctor (we had to cut short after we talked about the insurance issue) but she is willing to step forward and help me with my problems. I would definitely recommend her and without any single hesitation. Once I sort out the insurance issues, I'll try to see her again.

First time I meet Dr. Nguyen was for my procedure. She was very caring and understanding as I was a bit nervious because I was away from home. She has wonderful bedside manner. Last thing I remember before my actual test because they had to put me under was her telling me it was going to be okay.
