Dr. Tho Q Truong has the following 3 specialties
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.
- Allergy & Immunology
A rheumatologist is a physician who has received extensive training in diagnosing and treating rheumatic conditions. Rheumatic conditions involve the joints, soft tissues, autoimmune system, vascular system, and connective tissues.
Some of the conditions that rheumatologists treat are rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, gout, sarcoidosis, vasculitis, and lupus. These are all conditions that involve a lot of pain and make mobility difficult. Rheumatologists use medications, such as analgesics, NSAIDs, steroids, DMARDs, infliximab, and adalimumab, as well as occupational therapy, in order to decrease pain and improve a patient's quality of life.

Dr. Truong has been my rheumatologist and immunologist for 6 years, and I can't tell you how grateful I am. I have had a severe autoimmune disease since childhood (have been told I had lupus, juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, and after a biopsy, myositis which is inflammation of the muscle, and numerous odds and ends with weird problems and blood tests). She is really smart and she is the only doctor I have had who I feel has a grasp of all the stuff I've been through. Except for a couple of flares over 6 years, I finally feel I have more control of my disease than it does me.
I have been in and out of doctors offices for many years trying to find a doctor who would spend the time to talk to me and try to understand my symptoms and concerns. I finally found this doctor who just took the time to listen and explain things and not just prescribe a another medicine or do another test. I was very happy with her.
As Dr. Truong walked into my room, she began her introduction with a 10 minute summary of what the hospital could NOT do for me and what type of tests they were INCAPABLE of running. I commented that it was a very negative way to begin our appt. and that I would like to focus on the tests that they were capable of running and that could hopefully give me some answers as to why I had been sick for almost 3 years. She then proceeded to tell me she was not a "warm and fuzzy doctor" and that I needed to know the facts. I reiterated that I was at NJH to get the facts but would like to concentrate on the tests I would be taking. At the end of our appt, she told me that it would take 2-3 weeks to get the results back from my blood tests. Well, after 2 business days, I contact NJH to switch doctors and just happened to ask if any of my blood tests were back. I was told by a nurse that the majority of the results were back (if not all of them). I asked if I could get the results interpreted by Dr. Truong but was told she was on vacation for 1 week. At that point, there were 2 issues- given Dr. Truong's experience, how could she think that the blood tests were going to take 2-3 weeks vs. 2 days; and, knowing that she would be out of the office for the following week, and that I had been sick for so long, why didn't she share my file with a colleague in order to provide me with the results as soon as possible. So, I spent the week working with a Patient Care Representative attempting to find another Dr. in her department that could give me some answers. Unfortunately, due to legal reasons, this was not a possibility. At that point, I was promised Dr. Truong would call me with my results on Monday (her first day back). Today is Tuesday, and after numerous phone calls and messages, Dr. Truong has still not contacted me. Obviously, it is clear that she does not care about her patients. I wrote this in the hopes that I could spare someone else this type of experiencePS - I just received a call that Dr. Truong will not give me my results since I switched to another doctor. My appt with the other doctor is in 3 weeks. Really??
I am a deathly ill person, nobody helped me, couldn't figure out what is going on with me. Everybody gave up on me and have been letting me suffer. THIS PHYSICIAN DOES EVERYTHING FOR YOU, TREATS YOU LIKE A FAMILYMEMBER AND SPENT SO MUCH TIME IN RARE CASES TO GET TO THE BUTTOM OF YOUR DISEASE! AMAZING, AND I AM THANKFUL, 3Y I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR SUCH A PHYSICIAN. SHE IS SOOO SMART AND REALLY TRYS EVERYTHING TO HELP AND CARYING AND HAS A VERY GOOD HEART! NUMBER ONE FOR ME***********THANKS DR. TROUNG!
