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.

He explained what I should do to resolve the issue and gave product for my insert in my shoe. I was very pleased with his solutions for my foot pain. I would go back to him if needed.
July 12, 2021
i was asked to make an appt for a rehab but when i called i had to leave a message and no one called back! i think it would be more convenient for the dr's office to schedule the appt with rehab.
July 06, 2021
He was just very rude and he did not explain things well. So I would not go back to him again. He's rude and not professional.
July 02, 2021
We have known Dr Nguyen since 2014. He is very attentive, kind and patient. Thank you Doctor Nguyen.
July 02, 2021
Dr. Nguyen explained my issue in very clear terms and made a plan for my treatment that was very acceptable to me.
June 28, 2021
IT was a very good experience. He seems like a great doctor. Took about 6 weeks to see the doctor. No enough appointments. Probably because he is such a great doctor.
June 25, 2021
Dr. Nguyen is the best. He sits there and looked me straight in the eye. I let me speak letting me tell him what's hurting. What are my concerns. And he proceeds to give me a diagnostic diagnosis. I am so happy that I went to him and that he's taking care of my health issues. I would highly recommend Dr. Nguyen to anyone.
June 25, 2021
Dr. Nguyen is so attentive and amazing at explaining everything. He was so patient and while the visit was quick, I in no way felt rushed out of there. I just wish it was quicker to be able to get an appointment with him!
June 23, 2021
He is an excellent doctor, if all doctors were like him they would be wonderful.

I appreciated the time the doctor took with me explaining things I was asking about my foot. He's a very nice doctor. I would recommend him to my friends and family.
June 09, 2021
I would like the Dr to speak louder, because I'm hard of hearing, and sometimes the Drs are kind of soft spoken. So, I would like for them to speak louder, and in a manner that I could understand them. Speak loudly, and clearly, that's what I would like Drs to do. Thank you.
June 02, 2021
Office clean! Dr. & staff were excellent.
June 02, 2021
I arrived on time, wasn't taken back to the room for over 20 minutes. Then the medical assistant/medical professional asked me some questions about my visit. She was VERY unprofessional in her demeanor, her tone, her posture and I felt uncomfortable being there. As she left she stated the Doctor will be right with you. To me - being right with me - means in a couple minutes, less than 5. It was approximately between 10-15 minutes before he came in to see me. Dr Nguyen came in and was very professional and nice. Communication skills were not very good for the woman that was my first impression for this office. It's sad since the Physician was extremely thorough and very helpful. Thank you
May 28, 2021
I thought the cortisone shot was going to hurt but he has a gentle touch. Didn't really feel it. Dr. Nguyen is the best!
May 28, 2021
This was a second opinion because of concerns I had after a previous podiatry appointment with a different provider. Dr. Nguyen listened carefully to my history and concerns. He was thorough in his examination and gave me clear, detailed information on diagnosis and treatment. He added a metatarsal pad to my orthotic which seems so far to be decreasing my pain while walking. I checked daily for cancellations to get this appointment-it was well worth every minute that took. I trust him absolutely.
May 26, 2021
Great customer service. Very friendly and helpful staff.
May 21, 2021
Hi, Dr. Ken is very good doctor. I've had surgery with him. He's excellent. He takes care of his patients. I know he's taking care of me over these past years and he is always patient. Gives me enough information and always answers my questions and actually he guides me very much so on what to do and you know, how I should move forward on items that are distressing to me. He actually calms me and makes me aware of how I can fix some of the issues that I have with my feet. I think he's an awesome doctor.
May 21, 2021
Was a great experience. We love this doctor. Thank you.
May 05, 2021
This was my first visit to a podiatrist. It is difficult to evaluate any one or thing after a first visit. Ask me again in a month or two.
May 05, 2021
Dr. Nguyen is a great doctor. Very patient, knowledgeable and considerate to his patients.
April 27, 2021
I think he's great.
April 21, 2021
Dr. Nguyen was excellent. He was very detailed, very informative. He knew about my condition and I had not heard the same information when I went to Urgent Care or my primary doctor. So, I was very impressed and I truly appreciate all his help and his knowledge. He was very kind and he was very friendly. The only thing I was disappointed with is that it took 1 1/2 months for me to get an appointment with Dr. Nguyen. So it took quite a long time. Other than that, I enjoyed Dr. Nguyen and I would return back. Thank you.
April 21, 2021
Everyone is always very polite and courteous and very helpful when I need help of any kind..
April 21, 2021

April 20, 2021
Always a great experience
April 19, 2021
I don't think he understood very well. His English wasn't very very very good. That's all.
April 16, 2021
Thank you so much and appreciate your help
April 02, 2021

March 26, 2021
Everyone at PIH are great and professional! Dr. Treated me kind and with respect and explained everything to me and felt comfortable with the decision making!
March 26, 2021
Dr. Nguyen has been my podiatrist for many years now, and in some ways he has been more than just a foot doctor. He diagnosed the problem with my swollen left leg and referred me to the right specialist to correct the problem. Since then he has been trimming my toenails every two months all the while keeping an eye on my circulation issues. He is an excellent doctor who was recommended to me by a nurse at PIH Health Hospital. I am grateful for the excellent care that I have received.
March 22, 2021

March 16, 2021
Very professional and happy with my operation results
March 16, 2021
I had an appointment for 3:30 and came 15 minutes early as requested. I saw several people called in ahead of me. I didn't see the doctor till 4:30. If the front desk knew the doctor would be late they should have called me. I know he was very busy and had other patients to see. This took away from my experience.
March 08, 2021
Great knowledge and bedside manner!
March 08, 2021
I was treated with respect and the staff was especially helpful in helping me with a referral to a specialist. Staff took my request seriously and listed carefully to my request.
March 08, 2021
The doctor gave me a verbal feedback that I've never been given before and I was very happy to get the information.
March 05, 2021
Praying that he can help me heal

February 08, 2021
Had to wait 1/2 hour in the examination room
February 05, 2021
I believe Dr. Nguyen was very professional and he did listen to everything I had to say, didn't seem like he was wondering off or anything, and the staff too is actually really great. The receptionist going in and that the receptionist that were in there by the desk when I was talking to them, but I'm very pleased with her, you know with everything. Thank you.
February 02, 2021
PIH has the best doctors. I recommend them to all my friends and all my family.
January 29, 2021
I think when you schedule a patient they should be seen within 15 minutes of that appointment time. Sometimes, I have experience waiting 20 minutes outside and another 20 minutes in the waiting room. So that can be very annoying, and we have to pay for parking. Which I think is not correct, especially when you're there for, beyond your control on the time. But yeah, that's something they need to work on is the timing of having patients wait. I know things come up a lot sometimes with different circumstances, but, it happens more than once, often. So that's my feedback if you can sort of... limit the wait time on the patient. Okay. Thank you.
January 27, 2021
Yes, he's a good doctor and listen to me when I go to appointment and every time I need something from him. He would explain to me.

January 06, 2021
My appointment was not as long as Ive experienced at other Doctors offices in the past. I was received with greetings and didn't sit long in the reception area. The Doctor didn't delay my wait in the room. He explained my improvement and encouraged me continued home care and next appointment to be scheduled for further care.
