Dr. Nguyen came from a family with a long tradition in Eastern medicine. Being trained in Eastern medicine himself, Dr. Nguyen encountered numerous patients whose illnesses were not adequately managed by any one particular field of medicine. Dr. Nguyen actively engage with both philosophies, bridging Eastern with Western medicine, to maximize patients’ recovery.
During his tenure, Dr. Nguyen already helped numerous patients with rheumatoid arthritis to come off of their daily steroids and immunosuppressants, while his patients continue their active and functional lifestyles. Dr. Nguyen successfully treated patients with symptomatic gallstone and acute appendicitis without resorting to surgery.
