Dr. Nguyen found my case and noticed a referral had been erroneously cancelled and I had not been diagnosed. He finally solved the mystery of why I got a blood clot. Now I can move forward with treatment. I'm very grateful! Thank you!

Surprised that he spent a sufficient time with me. My experience has been that doctors are in a rush to do something else.

The consultation with Dr. Nguyen was to discuss CT results for lung cancer surgery follow up. Dr. Nguyen Explained everything in such detail and answered all questions. I left feeling positive about future CT-Scan.
