Ratings for Dr. Vu N. Truong
I have known Dr Vu Truong since he was young, I know his family, and he has been an outstanding doctor for my prostate condition for several years since he started his urology practice in Metrotown. He is well balanced, conscientious, and thorough. I rate him as an exceptionally good doctor, and his competence and kindness are well above normal. I was concerned about his guilty plea about overbilling the BC medical system. However there are clearly not enough checks and balances in place and some of the fault must lie squarely with the provincial government. House arrest is a serious stigma for anyone to be subjected to, and he will carry the burden of this for the rest of his life. Revoking hospital privileges for Dr Truong, knowing that his billing record will be very carefully scrutinized in the future, seems counter productive, a waste of a professional who is entering his most experienced career phase, and not in the interests of we who pay for the BC Medical system. I urge Fraser Health and the BC College of Physicians to think carefully before they do more damage to Dr Truong and his patients.
I too feel that this particular doctor did wrong, BUT with the talent he possesses and the excellent bedside manner, we CAN'T and SHOULD NOT THROW HIM TO THE WOLVES. It is bad enough we have a critical shortage of GOOD doctors due to the ignorance of the B.C. government, but to have his privileges revoked is ridiculous. Fine him and watch his returns. Some of the corruption that goes on in government is way worse then this incident. Fraser Health needs only to look inside and see that they are so top heavy with CEO's tripping over each other and our doctors and nurses run steady. Burnaby Hospital is a MASH unit and the doctors and nurses there are excellent. So this time Fraser Health USE YOUR HEAD AND SOME COMMON SENSE, and don't throw away an excellent surgeon for something that did not pertain to "A SURGERY".
It's undeniable he is a talented surgeon. I've been a patient of his and I'm a colleague as well. I'm not concerned with his lapse in judgement with his billing, my concern is the care he provides for his patients which in my opinion is top notch. The government rips taxpayers off everyday and we are none the wiser but when it happens to them it makes front page of the news and tarnishes the reputation of a great doctor. He paid his dues and deserves a second chance. I hope the outcome of this all doesn't rob our community of someone who has the potential to change/save a life. I'm praying for you Dr Truong.
This guy is the best! I have been going to him for over 3 years dealing with my bladder cancer. Even though he is incredibly busy, he schedules me in me right away if i have any concerns. He knows his stuff, has the most incredible receptionist in Angela, I feel like I'm in the best hands in the world, and I sure hope he doesn't lose any privileges over medicare billing BS. We all know great doctors like him can go anywhere else in the world, especially the U.S. and get paid a lot more. So...when yo see this kind of thing happening more and more, pay them what they deserve so they are less likely to take billing in their own hands. Let them be the best doctors they can be, and not have them worry about the money.! keep your head up Dr. Truong, keep fighting and don't leave us.....Nick Del Monte
This guy knows his stuff. Started in his office with a kidney stone. The conventional treatment by others didn't work, so we decided on surgery by him to correct the fact that a stone had moved into the ureter. The operation was a success. I was in and out of the hospital in a single day. 5 days later he removed the stent in his office in minutes. 3 days after that I went back to jogging. By the way, Angela, his receptionist, is nice, cheerful, and high energy. Hi Angie! Thanks Doc!
I was shocked the day I saw RED and went directly over to my local ER and while I wasn’t told a lot, by the way they related to me I was sure they knew and referred me for an exam right away. Dr. Vu Truong, MD, Urologist, had me in for an exam quickly and it showed in the lining of my bladder. During my follow up at his office he put my wife and I a little more at ease by reviewing the results and telling us that the plan of treatment has a high success rate, and said he was glad I came in at the first sign of symptoms. Being thorough he also ordered and CT scan to make sure it didn't spared anywhere else and that was when another big surprise came. The CT discover a large aneurysm in my spline. Well to make a long story shorter Dr. Truong's team at Burnaby General was great and they did a lot to make me feel at ease and the procedure was successful. The aneurysm procedure went well and I was told by the Vascular Surgeon that without the CT scan they most likely wouldn’t of found the aneurysm until it was too late. I have been free of a reoccurrence for over a year now and I'm on a maintenance exam schedule and back to my normal life.
