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.

I want to make sure that they make the appointment, the sooner the better, because my foot hurts. That's what I didn't like about it. Thank you.

Always answers all my question

Definitely this is the right Dr for your foot ... most important of all he takes his time to listen to you and takes time to understand and explain his diagnosis... He will take care if your needs. If you need a Podiatrist, Dr Ken C Nguyen is the right one. Not easy to get an appointment but worth the wait

The wait time to see the doctor was very long. The office seemed short staffed aa the front office clerks were abrupt and taking phone calls as the patients waited to check in. Several patients got up to complain od the long wait time. They were told it was a buay day. Period

Dr. Nguyen is always very thorough in examining my feet for diabetic-related issues. I appreciate his friendliness also. What is great about him is that he recommended an outstanding hospital when I needed to obtain care for my chronic and severe back pain. I was able to receive surgery from a fantastic orthopedic surgeon who helped me tremendously.

I waited a half hour to 45 minutes to see the the doctor, and when I had seen them, last January was the same thing. He gave us no information. I actually he didn't really talk to us. He was just cutting away at our toenails. I asked him about my toes. He told me what it was. And because I have a cyst on it, but that was all. So I don't think I'll be going back to him. This is the second time that and he did the minimal. I'm on our way with, with a podiatrist made. The disk. We had bought my husband. I had both appointments together. He did the minimum on, on our toes. I'm going to see if I can't find another podiatrist. I've I was not happy with him. I tried again because I'd had them last year even but it hasn't.

Stop charging for parking
October 05, 2021
I've been seeing this doctor since March. I've been three times where I had to wait 30-50 minutes past my appointment time to be seen. I have also had to call frequently about referrals he's put in for me. I also don't care that so much of the services such as my equipment are out sourced. I should be able to get a cam boot, orthopedics and scooter on site.
October 05, 2021
I was very pleased with Dr. Nguyen. He explained the mechanics of my foot and why I'm experiencing pain and discussed options to resolve the condition.
