All doctors have bad days. Unfortunately for my mom, Dr. Nguyen sliced her liver during a laparoscopic gall bladder surgery. Two days later, he had to cut her open from breast to pelvis to try to find a leak, which he never found. No answers were given, not even a guess, as to what was wrong...then he left for vacation. The surgeons who saw her in the hospital afterwards were very helpful and gave us their professional opinions...that her liver was leaking from the first surgery. All we wanted was an opinion....Dr. Allardyce is excellent and was extremely proactive and attentive during my mom's recovery.
Sadly, the first surgery was botched and the second was inconclusive yet very invasive. If it wasn't for Allardyce telling us what he thinks happened (liver) we still wouldn't know as Nyguen had no idea and he was the one who did both surgeries. He hasn't called to check on her since the second surgery...and although she is now under Allardyce's care, he should still reach out to her. Had his after care been better, I wouldn't have written this review.

Dr. Nguyen is a brilliant life saving surgeon. He performed my Sleeve Gastrectomy on me late last year. From my first consultation he treated me with dignity and respect and took his time to answer all my questions thoroughly. His sense of humour helped me feel relaxed . I felt so confident in his knowledge and skills that I had no fear going into the operating room. I have already recommended a couple of friends to get a referral to see him. His office staff have always been very pleasant and helpful with any of my concerns. Dr. Nguyen is the very best!!

I recently had Dr. Nguyen perform a Sleeve Gastrectomy on me and I've had fantastic experiences with him. He makes you feel completely at ease and comfortable (as comfortable as can be going into surgeey) and I highly recommend him to anyone seeking out bariatric surgery!

Dr Nam gave me hope by performing bariatric surgery on me. His office staff was so helpful, recognizing we were travelling to Richmond from Vcr Island. Appointments, tests, lab work were all coordinated in such a way that the procedures could be completed in a timely fashion prior to the surgery. Dr Nam was patient in addressing all questions and concerns. He was there to greet me as I was being prepped, he introduced his surgical team and reassured me each step of the way. Post surgery, He visited each day and his residents were there twice a day! I was never afraid - Dr Nam Instilled a feeling of confidence in me. I was told by his residents and nursing staff that he is a highly technical and proficient surgeon....I would have to agree! As a result of being an excellent surgeon, Dr Nam's office is extremely busy and sometimes crowded. The two girls on the reception desk are amazing at keeping order and flow. Wendy threw in a hug when she saw how excited I was to get the surgery date

Dr Nguyen is such an awesome, amazing & wonderful doctor! I had him fix a GIANT hernia that previously another doctor had tried fixing but failed. But he was so talented and here 3 years after and I'm still doing well. He also performed weight loss surgery and I've lost over 100 pounds. He's always seemed happy to see me and is always in a good mood. He never rushes our appointments or makes my questions/concerns seem dumb. HE'S THE BEST DOCTOR!! *I agree with other reviews though- the receptionists are not nice to deal with.*.

I saw dr Nam for my initial consultation. Dr Nam was very professional & knowledgeable & has a wonderful sense of humor. I am to undergo the removal of my gallbladder & dr Nam is the best in the business my Dr only sends me to the best, unfortunately he has someone filling in for him for two weeks and so happens its around my surgery date. I cannot wait and reschedule so its Dr Nam is performing the surgery which is who was suppose to do it as my health is really deteriorating. So is quite disappointed the surgery is going to be performed by someone else but why I really wanted to write is about the staff of Dr Nam. One lady in particular Caucasian black hair with patch of blond. I wonder how she has a job at all little in an office and for a doctor. This person shouldn't even be working with animals. She should not be in the service industry. Dr Nam if you care about your patience ( fire her). I don't like having anyone lose their jobs but this lady needs a wake up call.

This guy paid attention to me after six months of appendix pain. Other surgeons kept sending me for tests. Enough was enough and my health has never been better. Appendix be gone.

The receptionist is completely unprofessional and rude. The one that I have primarily spoken to is the younger one. Dr. Nguyen is an amazing doctor but they really need to hire someone else at the front desk. I cringe everytime I have to call in. It is sad that such a talented doctor is plagued by such horrible front desk staff.
