Hello, My name is Tuan Nguyen,D.O.
I was born in Vietnam and grew up in San Jose, California. I graduated from UC San Diego in 1999, and attended medical school at the Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine in 2001. I completed my residency at Olympia Fields hospital in 2010. During my residency I rotated through many hospitals: Stroger Hospital, Provident Hospital, Swedish Covenant Hospital, Chicago Heights, Franciscan Health Munster, and Weiss Memorial. I chose to practice emergency medicine because I enjoyed caring for patients of varying ages and across the entire spectrum of illnesses. I have 3 kids and enjoy spending time with them. In my free time, I enjoy traveling and snowboarding.
In the Emergency Department, when I care for my patients I treat them as if they were my own family members. I enjoy seeing patients smile when they feel better; it is gratifying to give patients the best experience possible in what can be a stressful time
I try to keep myself fit and well by going to the gym at least once a week. I try to eat healthy. I take my family to Big Bear and Mammoth frequently for snowboarding. We try to travel as much as we can especially to Hawaii.
