Great Doctor, Poor Staff

Dr. Ngai Nguyen is a leader in his field ofcardiology. Probably one of the best in thenation for his talent and expertise. Hisoffice has gotten somewhat better, but formany years has been extremely lacking intimeliness, waiting up to 4 hours (yes),more than 3 or 4 times to see the doctor. Office staff communication with his patients on appointments, communicationswith the hospitals on Dr. Nguyen's surgery's and procedures lacks. Once you get the doctor, though, you get the real deal in a real surgeon and a focused physician. The office has improved some lately and hopefully it continues...

he sucks

I think this guy only cares about money. the receptionists are rude and apparently don't understand the meaning of "appointments". They overbook and make all of their patients wait hours to spend 5 minutes with him.

Horrible doctor, even more horrible staff

Do not go to this doctor! Him and his staff are unprofessional and rude. The wait time is over 3 hours. My grandma has been going to him for a while and every time she goes she has to wait at least 2.5 hours. He has left her waiting in the examining room for over 45 minutes several times. I tried to explain this to him and his staff and they were rude and unprofessional about it. The receptionists is snobby and didn't want to make an appointment for my grandma because of my complaint. They do not run a professional business. We are finding another cardiologist.
