Dr. Nguyen and the staff at the Shady Grove Lancaster were amazing in our journey. I am 44 years old and was using eggs that were collected when I was 41. My husband and I are now expecting our daughter in December. It hasn't been easy but Dr. Nguyen worked with us every step of the way. The support staff is also amazing! They are rooting for you throughout the whole process.

Dr. Nguyen is an incredible mix of knowledge and genuine care for her patients. We asked a TON of questions and she was right there throughout the beginning of our journey to guide us and offer us the best knowledge and care that we could ever ask for at such a scary and unfamiliar time. I would recommend her wholeheartedly and I will definitely be returning if we try for baby #2 in the future!

My husband and I can't say enough about the treatment and hope we received at Shady Grove. Dr. Nguygen was open, honest, and extremely positive. We attempted two IUIs, and two IVFs with remarkably bad outcomes. We were facing a harsh reality, but Dr. Nguyen encouraged us to keep our faith and allowed us to attempt a 3rd IUI. I'm currently 21 weeks pregnant with our miracle baby. "Thank you" will never be enough!

Dr. Nguyen is the best of the best! I went to her after I felt like another fertility center was doing unnecessary/painful/expensive tests for a second opinion. Not only did she agree with me she tailored my plan to my specific needs. She have my husband and I hope when we lost it. Most importantly she made my dreams come true as we are now pregnant with our second baby to complete our family. I will forever be grateful to her and her entire staff!

My wife and I met Dr. Nguyen during our second IUI cycle while we were patients of another physician in the practice. After three unsuccessful IUI’s, we scheduled a follow up consult and decided to proceed with an IVF cycle with Dr. Nguyen as our RE. During that cycle, Dr. Nguyen was kind, caring, welcoming, patient, personable & supportive of us. We transferred one beautiful day 5 embryo and are now expecting a sweet little girl due July 2018. Our family is forever grateful for Dr. Nguyen!

I saw Dr. Nguyen when she was in Mechanicsburg. She was wonderful! She was caring, informative and very knowledgeable. She diagnosed me with PCOS very quickly and started treatment right away. We started seeing her in November 2015 and were pregnant by January 2016 with one IUI. Our little boy was born in September and is about to turn 6 months old. Couldn't ask for a better doctor!

We had a great experience with Dr. Nguyen and staff at RMA! Based on Dr. Nguyen's recommendation, we were able to get pregnant with the first thing we tried at RMA. We now have a beautiful five week-old daughter and could not be happier!
