Dr. Nhiem Nguyen's Ratings
I agree with most of the previous reviews. The doctor was very good but the receptionist was not. She is the only doctor's staff that I've ever had that I've felt the need to complain about. Definitely time for her to retire.
Very rude receptionists. She is obviously lacking in people related skills. Being a health care worker myself i have never treated patients the way I was treated and also witnessed her rude treatment to another patient. Can not understand why she is still employed. Good thing the Dr. is retiring for i would not come back to this office . Going elsewhere to get treatment
Doesn't matter which receptionist you get, since they can't handle stress and takes it out at patients.
Giving up on the doctor and going somewhere else. It's not the doctor s fault, it's the receptionists.
Like the previous post, Dr. Nguyen does know about the skin treatments. He does examine you head to toe before explaing your symptoms and conditions. So far the medicines he prescribe me worked great! However, the (asian)receptionist is rude and incosiderate.
Dr. Nguyen is a very knowledgeable and helpful doctor. He takes the time to explain everything to his patients. Until you get to see him, it is a terrible experience because of the receptionist. She is quite rude and condescending.
I don't know why so many patients seem to feel so negative about Dr. Nguyen's receptionist, Georgina. I think this lady is absolutely terrific and also very nice. I have never had any dispute with her at all! She has an awful big workload and she is always so calm and serene and patient. She has to make all the appointments and do ALL the medical typing and she is just as calm as can be - she is very very efficient and has worked for Dr. Nguyen - I'm sure it must be at least 20 years now. She has great dedication to her job and to the doctor himself and is truly his right hand! I just love her! Stop complaining all you people!
Waited 3 months for an appointment. 2 months in the waiting the receptionist called up to reschedule because dr Nguyen is going on vacation. Another month or so to wait till September. When September arrived, I called his clinic to confirm my appointment but was told I got the date wrong. The receptionist told me "I can't help you, i don't have computer system...you have to rebook" when I asked her to check her calendar for 8.30am appointment for September. It would only take 2 min for a quick check but she refused claiming it will take her 3 hrs. After I 'begged' her, she asked for my name and number and ended with 'I'll see what I can do". 1 week gone and never heard from her. Called again and asked very politely but to my disappointment, she refused and we spent 10min talking. I told her the time she spent arguing with me she could have checked. Later she said it was last week. If only she had checked and call back that space won't go to waste. I rather give up then to deal with her
Lovely older mature gentleman with soft manner and seems very knowledgeable. Seemed to take a genuine interest in me and my problem. I liked him very much. Have seen about 6 or 7 dermatologists over the years and he rates highly compared to the "young ones". However Dr Nguyen's receptionist (and I use the term loosely) is awful. She is on a total power trip, is full of her own importance and has obviously been working too long! Take retirement dear. The patients that come into Dr Nguyen's clinic pay your salary. It would be prudent to treat them as such.
In my experience (annual visits for 10 years) I have found Dr. Nguyen to be excellent. I work for Air Canada and one of the physicians that does our annual medicals recommended Dr. Nguyen to me as "one of 2 very good dermatologists" in Richmond that he knew of.
