I was told The Dr needed to reschedule my appointment from 10:45 to 10:30 which I said I would gladly do for them, but I wasn't taken to the exam room until after 10:45 so I was a little upset that I came in the requested 15 min. Show moreearlier only to wait until after the first appointment time. All of our time is valuable. It wasn't a big deal I just thought it was a little inconsiderate.
I had an office visit with Dr. Amy Nguyen and was very satisfied. She was thorough, answered all my questions, was friendly, and was easy to talk to. Her assistant was also very helpful and skilled. I would not hesitate to go baShow moreck to Dr. Nguyen when the need arises.
