As someone whose family members had been impacted by cancer, he understands the struggle patients and their family go through. “Treat your patients how you wish your family to be treated” is his care philosophy. His patients voted him to be among the top 10% of “most likely to be recommended” physicians at Stanford Healthcare. Dr. Nguyen volunteered his time in underserved clinics in the US, as well as went on medical missions in Central America and Asia.
Dr. Nguyen has a passion for teaching not only to the patients he serves, but to medical students and resident physicians. In addition to a busy clinic practice, Dr. Nguyen is also the local principle investigator for clinical trials involving immunotherapy and other cutting-edge therapies for cancer patients. He made his personal goal to make these therapies available for the Central Valley so that women do not have to travel out of the area for clinical trials.

In his free time, he spends time with his three children and enjoys the Central Valley outdoor. His hobbies include riding his motorcycle, computer programing, photography, and Taekwondo.
