Dr. Nguyen specializes in podiatry. He was born in Vietnam and came to the US as a child boat refugee. Dr. Nguyen chose to go into medicine after seeing various types of medical care in different cities and countries he lived in during his upbringing. He later specialized in podiatry because he was fascinated by the biomechanics of the foot and ankle. “It’s very rewarding to help the many diabetic patients I treat who have had limb-threatening ulcers and infections recover and return to their normal lives,” he says.

Dr. Nguyen is the best! He has been not only my podiatrist but also my son's. He has helped us both so much over the years. My son was born with a foot condition that causes him severe pain. He is athletic and was having injuries and pressure ulcers from playing sports. Dr. Nguyen worked with him for years to help him learn to manage his pain, teach him stretching, provide him foot support, and correct the issue. He is now in high school playing basketball and has hardly any pain or discomfort. We are so thankful for Dr. Nguyen.

The depth he goes to give the very best care continues my confidence in him. I appreciate him tremendously!!!!!
