Ratings for Dr. Dao Nguyen
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!!
I had a breast reduction with Dr. N and other cosmetic procedures. She has been personally and professionally supportive. Her work is impeccable. I too was initially worried due to the critical comments posted here. I'm glad I followed my GPs advice that this is a very reputable surgeon. She is a very nice person and a very careful practitioner. I recommend her to all of my colleagues.
I had a bilateral masectomy with Dr Nguyen over two years ago. They surgery was a disaster, and I still haven't healed completely. I had to have five revisions, and three surgeries, and the results have been terrible. During one of the revisions, Dr Nguyen made large cuts on my breasts, that were not discussed with me beforehand. I now have large, ugly scars on my breasts. During the second revision, I wanted to take a moment to ask if she would be cutting incisions again, and instead of answering my question, Dr Nguyen yelled at me in the operating room for over 45 minutes. She told me that doctors do NOT have time to answer all the questions of all their patients, and that I was being extremely selfish in wasting her time. She has been so rude and uncaring to me, and I plan on reporting her to the college of physicians. The results of all these surgeries, and after two years I have ugly, hard, flat breasts, and had to find a new surgeon who is willing to fix this for me. (Dr Nguyen said this is "as good as it looks" after mascectomy, and any further surgery will cost me $10,000, as it would be considered "cosmetic" She has brushed off every concern I have had, and not taken my pain seriously. I feel that her incompetence has cost me two years of my life, and I am still in pain every day. There was no pre- or post-surgical care or instructions. She ignores my concerns, and flippantly dismisses my requests. Worst experience of my life. I wish I had stayed on the waitlist for Dr MacAdam.
