Dr Nguyen and staff were wonderful, he took time to explain both before and after surgery everything we needed to know. Following a successful surgery Dr. Nguyen has continued to make life as normal as can be, my wife chose the right doctor, he was fantastic as was the rest of the team at Magee=Woman's Hospital.
Today I had my 1 year followup appointment with my breast surgeons office. As my doctor examined my reconstructed left breast (I had a mastectomy of my left breast and tram flap reconstruction) she commented that my plastic surgeon did an excellent job. She said my reconstruction was the best she has seen, and she has seen many, many! I have Dr Nguyen to thank for this. I am so blessed to have had the privilege of Dr Nguyen perform my tram flap reconstruction. He is truly a Dr who takes his work to heart. I urge anyone in this unfortunate position to make an appointment to discuss your options with this Dr. His work ethic is impeccable.
Words can not express how wonderful Dr. Nguyen is. He is everything that a Doctor/surgeon should be. Not only does he do amazing work, but he is extremely compassionate, caring, and has superb bedside manners. He genuinely cares about his patients. I highly recommend him to anyone who has to go through any kind of reconstruction.
I am so pleased with the results of my tram flap breast reconstruction performed by dr. Nguyen and his surgical team. In my profession I meet women daily who are faced with breast cancer diagnosis and surgery options. I will share my experience with whoever I can, and Dr. Vu Nguyen will be highly recommended by me!
