No bedside manner. Uncomfortable experience.

When I told the aide that I was interested in getting a renewal of a prescription, I was told that the medication wouldn't help me even though it was previously prescribed by the doctor. I felt this was not her call. In addition, when the doctor came in with an assistant in training and the aide, I was asked to undress. I should have been asked to undress while they were out of the room and given a gown to put on. Then while sitting on the table practically naked, I had three people examine me. It was the most uncomfortable situation. A gown or sheet would have been greatly appreciated.

She is very competent and catches even the very little things. When she does an in office procedure she is quick and professional. The only dissatisfaction I have is with her staff. They are abrupt, borderline disrespectful and lack organization and professionalism. Do not judge Dr. Nguyen's skills because of a poor staff.

"All my patients have to wait for an hour to see me! If you are not happy with me go see someone else!"

What a bizarre behavior shown by someone who does not deserve the respect due to a "doctor". I arrived early for my appointment with her, and was told to wait. I had to wait for one hour, and finally got called into an exam room, but she left me there again for 10 minutes. How long does she wait for her scheduled patient before marking the patient as 'no show' if the patient doesn't show up? My guess would be 10 minutes. By stark comparison, I had to wait for an hour and 10 minutes before I even got to talk to her. So, to show my justifiable displeasure at the excessive wait time and her oblivious attitude toward my displeasure, I asked her politely if she could compensate for my hour lost to meaninglessly waiting by giving a discount. Had she apologized and explained that although a discount is not possible, she would do better to make the wait time shorter from now on and make my wait worthwhile, she probably could have kept my respect for her who has the designation of an MD. Instead, she burst out in anger, pointing fingers at me, insulting me, and publicly humiliating me with a loud condemnation saying "all my patients have to wait an hour before they can see me!" Then, she added, "if you do not like me, go see another doctor." If it wasn't for that stupid hour long wait and my acute facial acne that needed attention, I would have kicked the door open and run out of the office after giving her the finger. She clearly abused her position of dominance as a healthcare provider to blame and threaten a vulnerable patient who needs her service. This is an absolutely unprofessional, demeaning, derogatory, condescending, childish, hostile, racist, haughty, self-righteous, ridiculous, and bizarre behavior that is deserving not a whit of respect that might be attached to the title "MD". Avoid at all cost, you could probably find someone who understands the concept of taking and keeping appointments.
