Ratings for Dr. Dao Nguyen
Dr. Nguyen is highly skilled and knowledgeable. She performed surgery on my hand and results, as judged by other professionals are excellent. She is efficient and personable - the latter a rare characteristic amongst hard working, time challenged medical professionals. I would always be delighted to give her my highest recommendation. Her office staff are very friendly and helpful as well.
The Doctor performed surgery to remove an invasive melanoma under my eye and was fantastic. Although she had to perform a skin flap on one side of my face in order to remove all the cancer she is such a skilled surgeon that it healed quickly and most do not notice the scar from an over 10 inch incision. Nothing but praise for this Doctor.
Went here for minor lump removal on my nose. Yes, she's straight to the point but not rude or uncaring. I explained my needle phobia and she took extra care to check up on me and had a nurse to look after me. The work was perfect and there is no scaring. She's busy but definitely took the time to be human with me. They slotted me in to a tight schedule and warned me beforehand that I'd likely have to wait but that's normal! This isn't a private dental clinic full of hygienists doing routine cleanings, it's a surgical centre!!
I had ovarian cancer 3.5 years ago which left me with a botched scar and a tether of scar tissue that pulled in and created a second belly button. Horrible! I saw Dr. Nguyen for this recently and she surgically resected the top half of the scar only on my request. She did an awesome job and made a dramatic improvement to how I look in a bathing suit or underwear. I am grateful to her for her natural talent in her field. I can see what others are complaining about here, she is abrupt and straight forward she is not rude. She tells it as it is and in the end everything she told me was correct. She isn't a "hand holder" if that's what you are looking for but she is a gifted surgeon. I'm very pleased with her work and that's the bottom line for me.
My worst experience ever. She should not be a doctor/surgeon, she should not deal with people. She is rude and has no bedside manners. She does not care about your opinion. I definitely do not understand why I had to go through such a traumatic experience.
I had a breast reduction with Dr, Nguyen for asymmetrical breasts and she was wonderful! I have nothing but positive things to say about her. She is very professional and patient with me the day of surgery. Her work really reflects how thorough she is . There are many comments on here who say negative things about her but I strongly disagree. She was extremely friendly and listened to all of my questions and concerns. Great doctor!
I met with Dr Nguyen on a referral from my oncologist. I was in desperate search of help after a very bad experience and a half done breast reconstruction by another surgeon & his locum. After 9 months of receiving a complete run around, zero answers & absolute lack of compassion from my original team, Dr Nguyen was a god send! She spent nearly an HOUR discussing my options & possible outcomes & answering all the questions that my previous plastic surgeon wouldn't/couldn't answer. She was empathetic, understanding and kind. She never once made me feel like she was in a hurry or that I was wasting her time. She assured me that she would be happy to answer & review any further questions & concerns in a follow-up appointment once I'd had a chance to process all the info and she did. Although I ultimately ended up going with a different surgeon (different procedure/experience), Dr Nguyen's knowledge, care & compassion was what helped me understand what was happening to me & helped me move on from my horrible experience with confidence that everything would be ok. I can not thank her enough.
The worst most rudest, judgemental human I have ever heard of. How can she still be practicing? Her conduct with my sister was the most awful experience of her life. Apparently trying to stop smoking while visiting this Quack is not good enough for her, let alone her attitude towards smokers! My sister have been fighting tobacco addiction for some time now and to have that Dr. tell her she wouldn't be covered not only by her B.C. medical but also her private coverage! I guess in her mind a bleeding, painful growth is all cosmetic. Just like she compared a bleeding growth to a woman with small breasts!! UNBELIEVABLE!! And you can bet the Collage of Physicians are going to hear abut this one!!
