Hello and welcome to my Web page. I want to share with you a few words about me so hopefully you can relate to the “real” Dr. Nhat Nguyen better when we meet.
I was born and briefly raised in a different country, on the other side of the globe. I came to this country at a fairly young age of 14. My dad moved around the country a lot in search for jobs, so just like a military family, our family has lived in many cities over a short period of time. Some of the cities I grew up in were Montreal, Denver, Kansas City. The career I chose even took me to more places. Out of many places in the world, I would never had envisioned California, especially the hot climate of Southern California, would be where I eventually will settle down. Now, with my beautiful children and wonderful wife, my roots are deep here.
Medicine has gone through many changes in recent years, and that includes the relationship between patients and physicians. We live in an "age of information” and patients want to be their own health advocates. I think the physician's job is to help the patient understand the disease process as well as to encourage making the right decision.
In a few words, for me what makes me thrive is my family. My current hobby is DIY home improvement projects.
