About Dr. Nguyen

Philosophy of care

I strongly believe in working together with each patient to prevent disease development and promote health. That’s my primary goal. My philosophy is to treat each person as a whole – body, mind and spirit. Everyone has a natural capacity for self-healing. As an osteopathic physician, I employ several approaches to help patients heal and maintain their health. I often combine osteopathic manipulative medicine (a hands-on diagnostic and therapeutic technique) and medical acupuncture with conventional medicine. Recently, I’ve become interested in functional medicine and nutrition, a science-based, patient-centered approach that focuses on treating the root causes of disease and dysfunction with dietary changes and other natural approaches rather than simply addressing the symptoms. I’m also interested in treating Lyme disease and other tick-borne infections that may be transmitted at the same time and cause patients to become chronically ill.

Why I entered medicine

I enjoy working with people and have always been passionate about helping them achieve health and wellness. I chose family medicine and osteopathic medicine in particular because I love taking care of whole families and being able to follow my patients throughout their entire lives.

Community involvement

Currently, my work and family commitments take up most of my time, but in the past I was active in my church choir.

Personal interests

I love gardening, visiting family and going out with my husband for ballroom dancing. Lately, my favorite activity is spending time with my young daughter.

Ratings and Reviews

About Our Ratings and Reviews

About our Survey

Our physicians and advanced practice clinicians (CRNPs and PA-Cs) are among the nation's best. That's why we show you patient satisfaction ratings and comments so you can read about and get to know our providers through the eyes of their patients.

To ensure our ratings and comments come only from verified patients, we work with NRC Health, a third-party organization. NRC Health sends patient satisfaction surveys on LVPG's behalf following an office visit or procedure. They ask patients about their impression of the health care provider and the doctor's or advanced practice clinician's communication skills.

What is included in the star rating?

Star ratings are based on a scale of 1-5 stars, 5 being the best. The rating includes responses to these provider-related questions:

  1. Physician Communication Questions
    1. Did this provider give you enough information about your health and treatment?
    2. Did this provider give you easy to understand information about your health questions and concerns?
    3. Did this provider listen carefully to you?
    4. Did this provider seem to know your medical history?
    5. Did you trust this provider with your care?
  2. Overall Provider Rating Question
    1. Using any number from 0 to 10, where 0 is the worst provider possible and 10 is the best provider possible, what number would you use to rate this provider?

Why don't all doctors or advanced practice clinicians have a rating?

In order to have enough data to measure and compare, a health care provider must have at least 30 completed patient satisfaction surveys. Surveys are included for a period of 12 months from submission.
