I was new to the area and visited Dr. Truong as she had many good reviews. I have had multiple negative visits this past spring (2015). She unfortunately had a very condescending manner particularly when I asked her questions about vaccinations/treatments. I needed my ten year tetanus booster shot and was given the general information sheet for Td (Tetanus Diphtheria). However, when the nurse arrived she said that she was giving me the Tdap (Tetanus, Diphtheria and Pertussis). I then asked to see the Tdap info sheet. After reading it, it became apparent that Tdap, while appropriate in many cases, was not in mine, particularly if you have already had a pertussis vaccine in the past. To make a very long story short I felt discounted b/c I don't have a M.D. (but I am able to read the CDC's information sheet and understand basic info her office has distributed!) I am not an anti-vax person, but was treated as if I thought vaccines were terrible. It was a very uncomfortable, somewhat confrontational visit. I unfortunately had to return for another appointment which also turned out negatively (another day, another story). I would not recommend Dr. Truong, and I will not visit her again.
This Doctor has an attitude problem that turns on and off like a light switch in seconds. This Doctor is rude, gives looks as if she wants to fight, and had the nervous to call me obese because I am not a size 1 like her. Instead of her reading the emergency Doctor paperwork she asking me questions about the results of the diagnoses. They have Saturdayâs hour that was not disclosed to me. If they had listening skills they would have known I did not want to miss work on a work day. My issue was important enough for a Saturday appointment instead. This Doctor does not care about your health but more about the money. In order to postdate co-payment one or more days they charge an additional $10.00. Therefore, if you don't have the money on the day of your appointment and you donât want to pay the additional $10.00 then they will not see you day of appointment nor any day. I will not be seeing this Doctor anymore. I do not and will not recommend this Doctor nor this family practice to anyone.
