Patient Experience with Dr. Nguyen
A I would give him 5 stars. He did my neck and fused it and my lumbar surgery is next.
I was dealing with back pain for years and saw local physicians in port charlotte where I reside. I was referred to dr. Nguyen and had a spinal fusion 6 months ago and have had no pain for 4 months now. I'm able to perform most normal activities including bending. I would recommend this wonderful physician to anyone who needs back care.
Excellent surgery. Was loosing use of arms and hands, no strength, no feeling in finger tips. When I woke up postop. All my arm and hand functions were back better than ever. I put surgery off for years but I'm glad I did because I wouldn't have had a great surgeon like Dr. Nguygen. He's is very skilled and his staff is excellent.
I feel great. I don't have anymore back pain, just discomfort. He is great!
I was very reluctant to have spinal surgery but after meeting with Dr. Nguyen I decided to go ahead with it. The best thing I ever did. Dr. Nguyen is amazing and my spinal problems are over. Great, great, great. I can walk, stand and ride my bike. I would recommend Dr. Nguyen to anyone.
Dr. Nguyen is great as is his attentive staff,
I was having pain in my lower back l could not stand more than a few minuets.I had burning down my legs numbness cramps in my legs were all making me not sleep through the night.Dr Nguyen told my nerves were tangled up with my arthritis we did surgery. I can not thank Dr Nguyen for giving me my life back.You are the best.
Dr Nguyen has been a godsend. He has surgically removed my botched hardware and fixed my back to the point that at five weeks post-op I am able to move more freely and with significantly less pain. I would recommend Dr Nguyen to anyone who needs serious relief from chronic pain. Thank you Dr Nguyen for giving me my life back!
I am grateful and have no pain!!
I feel great. I had epidural injection and I feel fabulous. Dr Nguyen was the one who discovered stenosis. He is great. Pain was off the charts. I feel great.
I had a lumbar infusion when I was 50, in Pittsburgh, PA. I'm now 65 yrs old and my lumbar kept getting worse year after year. My husband & I moved here 81/2 yrs ago hoping the sun would help...it has. Yet my back kept getting worse till I spent a lot of time in bed, couldn't walk very far. A friend recommended Dr. Nguyen so I made an appt. He explained to me from having my lumbar done, the Dr in Pitts when he fused me gave me flat back. That's no curve in my lumbar& scoliosis . Dr. Nguyen did my surgery April 26th & 28th. The thing I want to say is a heart felt Thank-You to Dr. Nguyen, you gave me back my life!!! Although I'm 65 I plan on doing a lot more things that I couldn't do before!! Thank-you for giving me a pain free rest of life to enjoy, you truly are awesome!
Amazing, Terrific bed side manner, talented surgeon. Recognized the severity of my situation and he moved the process along as quick as possible. Surgery was a huge success noticed improvement almost immediately. Office staff was professional and caring. Would strongly recommend to anyone considering Orthopedic work.
Dr. Nguyen is a wonderful doctor! I have been suffering from lower back pain for decades, and have had two previous surgeries. Dr. Nguyen made a superb diagnosis about what was wrong with my lumbar spine, informed me fully of the risks and possible outcomes, and operated so skillfully that ten months later, my spinal fusion is fully healed. Best of all, the pain is gone. Dr. Nguyen's care and engagement made the whole process much less intimidating than it might have been, and his cautiousness during the post-operative period ensured a fabulous outcome. I can't recommend him highly enough!
I feel fantastical glad to get the relief from all the pain . Tried exercise, physical therapy, medicications and nothing gave me lasting relief. I highly recommend Dr.Nguyn and staff.my life is back to normal Doug Alexander
My experience with Dr. Nguyen has been excellent. No back pain since the day of surgery (except incisional pain, a different thing). He has been kind , with an excellent bedside manner. Can't recommend him enough.
Dr Alex and Dr Nguyen are the most thorough and professional orth team I've ever had the pleasure of meeting. I've been misdiagnosed for seven years with three failed back surgeries. Dr Alex not only found the exact source of my pain, she worked with me personally through the entire process of treatment and fusion. She is very confident in her diagnosis and takes the time to listen and actually works with me instead of the typical talking at me. Caroline her assistant returns calls within hours and sends meds and orders immediately, she genuinely cares about the wellbeing of her patients. The amount of care and level of expertise given by this team has given me my life back. Thank you Kennedy white orthopedics
I suffered from severe back pain 60 years. Several surgeons in the area told me my condition was inoperable. After my surgery with Dr Nguyen I am pain free!. He walks on water as far as I am concerned. He is very down to earth and greets me by my first name. I put my life in his hands. I am so proud to be his patient.
Dr.Nguyen is my hero..the staff at Kennedy white are the friendliest,and most courteous staff.I wish I would have had the ptocedure done sooner as suggested by dr Nguyen,but I was afraid..I can't thank the staff and doctors at Kennedy white enough,I would highly recommend..thank you
Prior to seeing Dr. Nguyen, I was unable to stand for more than 10 minutes without pain. Dr. Nguyen performed a procedure on my back that required a hospital stay of almost a week. He provided me with very accurate information on what I could expect, so there were no surprises. My healing went as he predicted, and now, after six months, I am able to walk for over three miles with no pain. To say that I am satisfied is an understatement. His work has restored my mobility and my enjoyment of life. Thank you Dr. Nguyen!
Dr Nguyen got me 100 percent out of pain with my neck I would highly recommend him. He has an excellent bedside manner
All I can say what great experience and a great Doctor. I had my back surgery in January and I am pain free and walk 5 miles a day . The whole stuff is great. Thank you Dr. Nguyen for giving me my life backüòò
Dr. Nguyen is the best. Knowledgeable, caring and an EXPERT IN HIS FIELD! With great recommendations from friends led to best decision I could have made .Entire staff works together like clockwork.
I feel better. I like him bedside manor. He is amazing.
I feel great. I can drive 14 hour trips with no problems!!! I can sit in a chair now and red books for hours. Just wonderful.
I feel 100%. I had cervical fusion after year of pain. The pain from skull to right shoulder is gone. I feel great.
I feel fantastic! I had surgery last February, 3 months ago and I feel amazing. I had a fusion from top to bottom! I have no pain!
It's been 3 months since surgery and pain in my back is about gone.
Came in with back pain and pain going down both legs. Woke up from surgery and all the pain was gone except the surgery pain which I know will go away. DR answered all my questions, very professional and knowledgeable. Great job doc! thanks Tim
I have been struggling with back pain for 5 years and finally after surgery with dr. Nguyen I am almost pain free. I went to a different surgeon and he wouldn't preform the surgery he said it was not worth the risk. I am so happy to find dr. Nguyen he's an amazing surgeon.
I feel fantastic! I'm 6 months out from a failed surgery from a previous md that Dr Nguyen fixed right away! I can finally walk 10,000 steps!
He is a Miracle man!! Before Dr. Nguyen, I couldn't walk 50 yards, now I can walk a cit block post surgery and it's getting better day by day.
I feel great! My surgery on my neck was 5 months ago and I feel great!! My neck pain went away.
I feel very good. I'm 3 mons post op from Laminectomy w decompression and I feel so much better! I had pain for 16 years!! Now I ride bikes every day!
Very nice and friendly. Extremely happy with surgery and pain free. I have Dr Nguyen to thank for that.
Excellent communicator, very empathic and caring. Took the time to make sure I understood the risks and the benefits of my surgery. The actual procedure was close to eight hours combined, anterior/posterior, but he was methodical in assuring an excellent outcome. His staff was equally caring and proficient. The only drawback I would even mention is, like all orthopedic surgeons, you rarely see him after the surgery as he is busy helping other patients with their surgeries. I would recommend Dr. Nguyen for his tremendous surgical skill and patient communication to any patient needing his services.
- Gary brown
His surgery has changed my life for the Berber. It has been 50yrs since I have felt this good.
I feel great. Best I've felt in years. I had lumbar survey and feel amazing.
I have no nerve pain!! I can now stand on my leg without stabbing pain. I feel great! He did a wonderful job on my cervical and lumbar surgery! The scars are almost gone!
I feel great. Every day I get better.
Dr. Nguyen is one of the most compassionate and knowledgeable Dr.s that has treated me. He literally saved me from being paralyzed, removed a malignant tumor and repaired my C-5 vertebrae. Always willing to talk and discuss any problem you may have.
I feel completely pain free! My nerve pain is finally going away!
Excellent results in all aspects of the surgery. Recommend dr nguyen 1000%
Exceptional surgeon and professional. Fixed me twice with extraordinary outcomes. He has an exceptional reputation. He's a gem.
Dr. Nguyen is AMAZING! He performed a cervical fusion for me at the c6/c7 level. This was my second fusion in 18 months. I previously had c5/c6 fused by a different surgeon in Tampa. The experience between the 2 surgeries is night and day different. My recovery with Dr. Nguyen is so much faster and easier than the first time. I had very little pain and was back to living my (modified) lifestyle in a matter of days. The surgery was successful and my symptoms have been alleviated. Dr. Nguyen is a gifted surgeon with an exceptional personality that puts you at ease and makes you feel confident with his care. I highly recommend him and would use him again in the future if I have the need.
I feel perfect. My surgery was one year ago. I had a fusion. He is a superb surgeon. I couldn't walk 10 feet when I met him. Now I'm free to do anything.
I feel great! The ablation was perfect, dr Nguyen knew what to order.
Dr Nguyen is very personable and staff is very helpful
I feel good! I have very little pain at this point. I'm 65 and had 3 prior surgeries! Finally, I'm healed after the correct surgery. Thank you Dr. Nguyen!
I've had 3 spine surgeries, and dr Nguyen fixed all the previous surgeries! I feel great! 100% better
Dr Nguyen is a genious

Celebrating 1 year from major back surgery Feeling so much better and no more pain Dr. Nguyen is a caring and very attentive Doctor I know I was in capable hands
Before the surgery, I was using a walker and wheelchair. Now, I'm walking and pain free!!!
Things went great right from the begining. Never had to use the walker, just a cane. Pain was much less than before and walking was unbelievable. All together it was a merical.
I did a video review. Dr Nguyen is and exceptional Surgeon.
I think he is a blessing. This is my second cervical surgery. He fixed the first disaster! Very pleasant. He is the best. I'm fortunate to have found him.
I think Dr. Nguyen is extremely professional. He addressed all my issues. He is very kind and generous with his time. We had surgery when it was a last resort. All my back pain subsided. His nurse Carolyn is very professional and they take an interest in me as a patient.
I feel great! I had surgery 2 years ago and I feel amazing at 89 years old! He saved my life.
Dr Nguyen has changed my life for the better with his compassion and excellent surgical skills. When all other surgeons told us that nothing could be done to help me, he took my case much more seriously and undertook the task that no one else would. Because of his skills,l now have hope for a more normal life. Thank you is not enough. Normal recovery pain is normal, but is much improved even at this early stage. I look forward to the future thanks to him.
I have been pain free for weeks and it is amazing. I do not know why I hesitated so long to have the surgery. Dr. Nguyen is fantastic ti work with. Kudos!

I feel amazing. I can stand up straight now. My pain is just surgery pain. I am now a 2 for a 10. We had little hope, and now we are so pleased! Multiple surgeries and injection didn't work. Dr. Nguyen is so personal. He called me twice from out of state and said, "I can fix this. " I have my life back!
Prior to surgery, pain was unbearable. Everything hurt, I am now pain free in my legs, and the back pain in slipping away. Dr. Nguyen is extremely concerned about me. You won't be sorry if you have surgery with dr. Nguyen.
I feel great. 6 weeks after surgery and my back is already improving!

I feel great I have my life back. I get up without pain!!! I can do Dishes without pain. I'm human again.
Dr Nguyen has performed a miracle!! After a incident of a patient attack I suffered a back injury for 15 years we struggled through numerous treatments to no effect. Damage continued to get worse causing severe scoliosis and kyphosis to point of extreme hunching. After a referral from a previous patient dr Nguyen simply stated I can fix you. He performed a T4 to s1 fusion. I am finally able to stand upright again. Friends and family can't believe the difference and how tall I am. Thank god for dr Nguyen I tell everyone I see who suffers back pain to see him and miracles he performs. Thank you thank you
Dr. Nguyen is fantastic. I feel 100 better after only 2 weeks!!! He is amazing and so professional and great bed side manor
Amazing!!! No pain at all
I have lived with Chronic back,leg,Hand pain for over 5 years. I had surgery a Laminectomy by Dr Robbert Getter in Port Charlotte Florida almost 2 years ago. After surgery I ended up 3 weeks later with a Spinal Fluid Leak, not one , not twice , but 4 times. About a month after all these surgeries I went back to Dr Getter explains I was in awful pain ! He excused me and said push through the pain your fine !!! My General Practitioner Dr Jorge Caberra did everything for me attempting to find what was causing my crippling pain He ordered a MRI and found the Surgeon had punctured my spine. He researched and found Dr Lam Nguyen Upon seeing Dr Nguyen he did more tests and addional MRI's only to find the root cause, My spine was collapsed bone on bone L-4, L-3 and S-1. Dr Nguyen fully explained what needed to be done and surgery was my only option. After surgery upon waking up the pain was at least 50% gone !!! I'm now 3 months post op and 95% pain free. Dr Nguyen is the ABSOLUTE BEST SURGEON EVER I can't say enough about this man. He's kind, caring, addresses all your concerns. Not many Drs especially Surgeons take that time with there patients. In addition I would like to give a kudos to Carolin his nurse, she to is the best. I feel as if this entire practice is my family. Thank you Dr Lam Nguyen of Kennedy White Orthopedics. You saved a life Sincerely Mr. Patrick w. Jarrell
I feel excellent. 2 months ago I couldn't walk more that 15 yards, now I'm up to a couple miles!!! Dr. Is fantastic.
I love him! he is amazing!!
Dr Nguyen is awesome. On my first visit the doctor had me have injections in my sacroiliac joint which provided instant relief. Although this shot was temporary relief it showed us that my pain was coming from the sacroiliac joint. I am very impressed with Dr Nguyen as I have been having this pain for almost 20 years and he discovered the issue on first visit.
Excellent surgeon! Good communication in person. Communication with his office can be problematic. Would highly recommend.
I feel so fortunate to have found Dr Nguyen Everything came together at the right time....the right place and the perfect Doctor It is a difficult recovery but well worth it
I put off having a cervical fusion (2 level) for many years, relying on injections and PT. Now, at six weeks post surgery, I am doing extremely well, well beyond my expectations. Dr. Nguyen and his team are excellent and I am grateful to have found him here in Sarasota. I only regret putting off the surgery for so long.
Right side sore si joint. When dr nguyen did the left side there is no pain.i am so grateful to him. He is the best
Dr. Nguyen performed a minimally invasive spinal surgery as I was in excruciating pain. As promised when I woke up I had no pain. Thank you Dr. Nguyen for giving me back my life!
Dr. Nguyen is an excellent surgeon, my results are perfect. I am walking four to six miles per day with no pain. He truly cares about his patients.
Great surgeon. I'm so happy! I feel great!
Dr. Nguyen was the surgeon who cleaned up 4 prior messes by other surgeons. He is truly one of the best, most competent surgeons I've had the pleasure of meeting. For the record, my recent surgery was my 30th overall and I've seen the good, bad, ugly, and horrific. Dr. Nguyen, is incredibly thorough, and honest. He told a friend he unfortunately couldn't help, rather than attempt and go down a worse road. I am forever grateful to Dr. Nguyen and his competent, caring staff, a real breath of fresh air in today's climate. I haven't really walked or done anything in almost 5 years, thanks to Dr & his team I am among the living again. Thank you üôèüèª
Great me, impressive. Got me standing up t
I feel great!!! He is amazing!
I feel great. Best surgeon ever after years of pain. Best I've felt in 5 years!!
Dr Nguyen is wonderful. He spend a lot of time with patients on the first
I feel wonderful. Dr. Nguyen is all business when it comes to spine.
I am so pleased with the result of my surgery. Other than some insignificant pain at the incision, my sciatic pain is gone, not even a twinge. Dr. Nguyen's confidence allowed me to enter this procedure with the belief it would have a good result, which is exactly what happened. My wife works in preop at SMH, and tells me in what great esteem he is held by the other nurses there. He did a wonderful thing for me. Respect is due.
Dr. Nguyen has changed my life with the surgery he performed. He was the first of many doctors who readily said he could help me. So many orthopedic and neurosurgeons had said my scoliosis and degenerative disk disease were too advanced for surgery and that if I had surgery, my chronic pain might be worse. I have had very little pain since surgery and am almost off pain meds. I feel like a new person, I have come to really love Dr. Nguyen. He is a spinal genius. He is very humble and kind and so caring about his patients. The patient care at Kennedy White Orthopedic Center is so amazing. I am encouraging all my friends with back and spine issues to see Dr. Nguyen. He is amazing!
After almost a year of pain due to being hit by a car while riding my bicycle I finally had some pain relief. Dr Nguyen performed a multilevel disc replacement after a thorough exam and other less invasive procedures. The staff has been both professional, timely and understanding throughout this very trying time in my life. Highly recommend Kennedy White Orthopedics.
Feeling great!! Dr. Nguyen is great. Pain I'd down 80% and I'm a functioning human again. Highly recommended!!
I'm pain free! First time in years! The experiance with Kennedy an White was excellent!!!!! Dr Nguyen was a blessing in my life. His gift I'm sure will become ledgendary in the field of neorosurgery. The staff at Kennedy an White are without question the best at what they do. I thank you so much for all you have done for me to give me the freedom of pain that had made life so miserable for me. Thank you
I feel great. The surgery was an outstanding success!! I'm amazed at how quickly I feel so well! I've had many surgeries, and the results exceeding my expectations.
I had back surgery with Dr. Nguyen 3 mo ago and neck surgery 2 weeks ago, and I feel amazing. When I came to see him I had to be pushed in a wheel chair. Now I'm pain free and living a normal life. I want to thank you Dr Nguyen and Sissy for taking such great care of me
Thanks to Dr. Nguyen, my life is back!, no one even addressed SI pain and Dr. Nguyen found it Asa's and I'm feeling great at 3 months post op!
Two yrs was in pain everyday. After Dr. Nguyen performed surgery 3 months ago I have been pain free, he is truly a miracle worker.
Dr Nguyen and Sissy were outstanding. My spine fusion was successful as was the recovery. I highly recommend this KWOC team for spine procedures.
After 12 weeks from surgery I have 0 pain for the first time in 3 years I would recommend Dr Nguyen and the Kennedy White staff for their great care. Especially SISSY
I feel wonderful at just 2 weeks post op!! I had a Laminectomy and woke up feeling better immediately. I'm taking Tylenol only and I'm up to 1/2 mile a day after just 2 weeks. He is a miracle worker!!
Absolutely outstanding surgical work. Pre-op pain eliminated completely and no post op pain. Stayed on top of every issue during recovery. Extremely kind, caring and humble Doctor. Great bedside manner. Could not recommend anyone more highly.
Dr. Nguyen had done a multilevel cervical fusion on me. I was in an enormous amount of pain prior to my surgery. I had been quite fearful of having any more spinal surgery because I had three previous lower lumbar surgeries done out of state. I wasn't looking forward to going through that process again. What I appreciated most about Dr. Nguyen was his compassionate friendly personality coupled with his vast knowledge. He was a vey understanding Doctor that did not jump immediately into surgery. Firstly and foremost he listened closely to me and my needs. He referred me into a physical therapy program which helped greatly with continuing to solve my problem. Although I did end up needing surgery he tried all necessary options before making the decision to have surgery. He prepared me for the procedure and explained in detail everything to be expected. I am now a pain free happy camper. I would highly recommend Dr. Nguyen he is an excellent knowledgable surgeon.
Best dr ever! The most important thing is he thought exercise would help and it did!! He didn't push anything on me. He is so kind and listens!
I feel great excellent since surgery service from dr. Nguyen and staff is excellent.
I love Dr. Nguyen. I feel like a new person!!! For 20 years I've been seeing spine surgeons!! Go to Dr. Nguyen NOW!
I feel great, better every day! I'm regaining mobility and strength daily. My life is back!!
Best!!! He saved my life. He returned me back to health and I'm already back to work. I am pain free!!!!!
Dr. Nguyen is great! I feel great, I had a kyphoplasty and it was a miracle!!! Dr. Is very caring and well knowledgable. I'm so happy about my outcome!
I feel great!! As of today I am pain free!!! All my nerve pain is gone. I'm so glad I found him!!
Dr. Nguyen and his PA walked me through my procedure every step of the way from the beginning to post-operation visits. The pain I endured for 6 months is completely gone. Thank you Dr. Nguyen and your staff.
Dr. Nguyen after 30 years of suffering, has been a life saver!!! I can't believe I waited 30 years!!!
I feel NORMAL . HE IS THE BEST!!!! I suffered for 10 suffered. He is a great listener. 10 years of injections and narcotics never worked! I am now pain free!!!
He is a saint!! I feel great. I was in pain for years, at least 10! Dr. Nguyen is perfect!!
Dr Nguyen is a miracle worker!!! He has changed my life and taken away years of pain in the spine as well as years of nerve pain. I haven't felt this good in 30 years!! Thank you Dr. Nguyen
Dr Nguyen has me feeling pretty darn great!!! After suffering for a year, I'm already feeling great after just having surgery 2 weeks ago!
Dr. Nguyen is fantastic. I woke up with NO PAIN!!! I have suffered for ten years, and now I'm great!!
Dr. Nguyen is great. I was in hospital with back issue, I saw no light at end of tunnel. Dr. Nguyen saw me and pulled me thru my back issues w ease. Having seen him in the office 3 times only, he remembers everything about my health! He is highly recommended.
Precise, compassionate and understanding. visits in hospital were not rushed, questions answered. I especially appreciate the time taken to explain how he intends to correct cervical and lumbar issues. De. Nguyen has put together an excellent support team.
Dr. Nguyen is great! I feel fantastic! I had a pinched nerve and Dr. Nguyen squeezed me into his schedule and I Got surgery, (fusion, Laminectomy and a cage), and I'm walking along great just five weeks after surgery!! He is a life saver. WS
Dr. Nguyen is a fantastic spinal surgeon. He told me I wouldn't have any pain after the surgery, of course he was quick to state that he was cutting my skin so of course there would be some soreness from that, however I have never had the need for pain killers since I never had any pain after the surgery. What a relief!! He is very friendly and easy to talk with regarding a problem. He explains exactly what he will be doing and what the patient should expect. Dr Nguyen is a fine person and a marvelous surgeon.
I am absolutely pleased with care and knowledge Cenedy White dr Nguyen and his staff demonstrated . Good job!Keep it up
This was my 3rd back surgery since 2000. First 2 at Hospital Surgery in NY City. I have had NO pain since day after surgery. I am ambulating well 2 weeks out. Dr. Nguyen is professional, compassionate, efficient, listens to all questions and answers fully. He is extremely talented as a surgeon. His P A is as well.
Dr. Nguyen has given movement and pain free life to my back and legs. Great surgery and recovery. Feel so at ease and free of nerve pain in legs and back. Have so much faith and respect toward Dr. Nguyen as a doctor. Thank you for the new life.
I could not be happier with the results of my surgery. Prior to surgery my pain could not be controlled. My pain was gone almost immediately after surgery. After years of pain and searching for answers Dr Nguyen was the answer to my prayers. He explained the problem showing me everything on my scans and his plan to fix it. Put my mind at ease knowing that I was in good hands. I would recommend him to anyone , and have already.
I got my life back. I'm so happy to know KWOC. I feel I have a totally new life. Dr. Nguyen is great!
Dr. Nguyen is an amazing diagnostician. He found an issue immediately after MRI. Injected and fixed. I am a non-clinical doctor and very critical of medical visit scenarios. This doctor is a winner.
He is a genius! I am pain free. First time in years
He is amazing. I just love him. My surgery is a success!! Highly recommended.
He is terrific from beginning to end, very personable and compassionate.
Dr. Nguyen did 2 surgeries on me. I have relief for the first time in years. My recovery was great. I can do so many activities I haven't done in a decade!
Absolutely the best. Takes time and explains everything. Excellent results. Fantastic surgeon.
He is awesome!!!! My pain is basically gone, just some muscle tightness which I'm working on with pt. I can walk!! I can get out of a chair!! My life is coming back!
In 2009 Dr. Fine had done a emergency fusion on me. I stuffed in pain for 9 yrs. Until pain management introduced me to Dr. Nguyen. He did a complex reconstructive spine surgery that allowed to to stand up straight and tall. He gave me my life back. I would recommend D. Nguyen anyone suffering from spine disease.
Dr. Nguyen is amazing!!! He is a miracle man, I'm telling all my friends to see Dr. lam!! I have no pain and I'm 87!!!
Dr. lam Nguyen is a caring, conscientious physician who was thorough in his evaluation of my spinal condition, is honest and direct in his communication, and performed very successful surgery on L2-3 (decompression), and L3-5 with fusion. I am extremely grateful for his skill and expertise. His assistant, Sissy, is equally direct in her communication and thorough in her explanation of expectations at my 2-week post op appointment. Thank you for this wonderful care!
I've been to 4 ortho mds. Dr. Nguyen is the only one who had a long range plan.
Dr. Lam Nguyen is the best!!!
dr. Nguyen is a miracle worker. I had severe back pain from a former fusion. He did corrective surgery and it worked. I am back to my normal self! Thank you Dr. Nguyen
I didn't want to live 6 months ago. Dr. Nguyen did a 6 hour surgery and gave me my life back literally. He made it possible to live and enjoy life again. I got to enjoy my wife's 85th birthday. Thank you dr. Nguyen.

Dr. Nguyen is great, no, he is excellent
I have been a patient of Dr Nguyen since December. I had 2 pinched nerves and tremendous pain for many years. Dr Nguyen did surgery and I am pain free for the first time in 20 years. No longer need pain management doctor. Very pleased and I highly recommend him.
I was so grateful to get in immediately. He is smart, efficient and he gave me the tools to heal myself.
I renamed Doctor Nguyen to Dr Magic! I am 100% doing all things pain free. I had a very wonderful experience. I highly recommend him.
Dr. Nguyen is my hero!!! I had the door slammed in my face with several doctors until dr. Nguyen. He listened to me. And he healed me. I'm so happy I found him. He did an awesome job and I have my life back.
Dr. Nguyen gave me my life back. Before spinal fusion surgery, I was unable to walk; and the nerve pain when sitting or standing was unbearable (I would cry or scream). It's only been three weeks since surgery, and I'm walking with just a cane with NO nerve pain. I am thrilled with the outcome. I know my goal of strolling on the beach will come true soon!
He is amazing! He never gave up on me and finally found the issue! So personable. I love him!!!
Dr. Nguyen is awesome. My surgery was quite extensive. Immediately my pain level dropped to nothing and I was walking like I had not been able to do in years. All of my questions were answered in advance and I knew what to expect. For a surgery I was dreading, I am so happy I had it done. I feel like a new person.
Dr. Nguyen was an absolutely amazing surgeon in so many ways. I have never met a doctor so caring before. He went above and beyond for me as a patient. I'm two weeks post op and feeling great! Thank you so much Dr. Nguyen. I can't thank you enough!
Fantastic! I'm 2 weeks post op from a fusion and feel amazing! Dr Nguyen is a miracle worker with amazing bed side manor. I highly recommend!
I am really impressed with the doctors skills and knowledge. I'm so impressed, and was within a few minutes of meeting him.
I recently underwent surgery for an L3-5 laminectomy, decompression, and L3-4 discectomy by Dr. Nguyen with an excellent outcome. I am completely without pain. Dr. Nguyen is a very competent and skilled surgeon with a wonderful bedside manner. He is easy to talk with and he explains things in a way which makes it easy to understand exactly what is involved before, during and after surgery. He visited me daily in the hospital and was very involved with my care. I felt he was totally in control which made me feel confident and less anxious about having the surgery. Three of my neighbors also had spinal surgery by Dr. Nguyen and all had excellent results, too. I highly recommend him to family and friends. I can’t thank him enough.
Excellent surgeon and great aftercare.
I can't say enough about him! He is very caring and remembers everything I told him. Very gifted surgeon!
Dr Nguyen is very thorough and kind. He always looks for alternatives to surgery. I highly recommend him.
Miracle worker! Kind, caring, and a life changer! I adore him. I have my life back.
He is the greatest!! Very thorough. Very happy I found him.
No words to express my gratitude to Dr. Nguyen and his staff. 2 months ago I was in constant back pain and walking was difficult. Surgery and PT restored my life to zero pain. I'm biking, golfing and working out in gym again. Thank you Dr. Nguyen.
Dr Nguyen gave me my life back. I haven't felt this well in 30 years. He is something special. Personable and a wonderful surgeon...coming from another surgeon...I give him great praise.
Awesome experience! I feel great after my surgery. Best in years!I think he is brilliant and attentive. Listens to every work. I think the world of him.
I feel great thanks to Dr. Nguyen. My quality of life is now 100%. Run to this MD!
I feel amazing! Best I felt in years! I'm only 2 months from surgery and I feel like a million bucks! Very smart man and a great surgeon. And bed side manor is wonderful.
Awesome surgeon. The burning sensation went away almost instantly. Great bedside manor. I trusted Dr. Nguyen and it paid off!
Very impressed with dr nguyen. I was in severe pain. He did surgery within a week and it's a miracle!!! I highly recommend. I can now function.
Great doctor. Took away my pain
Self-verified patient of Dr. Ngoc-Lam M Nguyen - Posted on December 4th, 2018 I needed surgery. My previous fusion in 2008 and repairs in 2012 and 2014 had failed. The screws holding the rods that went up my spine had pulled away from the bone. I was in constant pain. I could barely walk about my house. Even the powerful prescribed pain medications weren't effective. Dr. Nguyen accepted me as his patient but I needed surgery, two days back to back. In all I was in the OR for over sixteen hours. I spent four days in the hospital and three weeks in the hospital rehabilitation wing. I am a month out of my surgery date(s) and I can stand straight and I can walk. I am no longer a hunched over homunculus of a man. The results Dr. Nguyen achieved are staggering. I know the prospect of any surgery can be fearful, but I urge you at least consult Dr. Nguyen and conquer your fears. It is so much better to be able to walk into the future rather than be wheeled into it. You will find Dr. Nguyen not only to be a superior surgeon but one who is caring and compassionate. He listens to you and carefully explains what he needs to do and why.

He went out of his way and said If I did what he asked, the results would pay off, and they did. He is a great surgeon. I have my life back
Dr Nguyen did a lumbar fusion that was a game changer! He changed my life.

Awesome surgeon. My back is great!!
He is amazing. Answered all my questions and eliminated all my surgery fears.
My experience has been wonderful. I had so much pain before I saw Dr. Nguyen. He explained my problems and procedures that could lessen the misery. We tried spinal steroid injections first, but the relief did not last. He then explained two surgical options. I chose the one without the rods and pins and I consider the result amazing. I have no pain in my legs and the back pain lessens every day. Life is good.
The doctor is first rate in all respects. I will recommend him to others and would return to him if needed.
He was the first md to find my pain was from SI joint! I wasted years looking at back! He found the problem and now I get SI joint injections that have transformed my life.
Dr. Nguyen is a great md. Greta bedside manor. He gave me the help I needed.
Awesome experience. I injured myself on the job and Dr. Nguyen did surgery and I feel great just 6 weeks later! Great bedside manor. Very professional and I walked in and walked out with zero pain after surgery. Couldn't be happier.
I can't believe I am pain free after years of back pain! Highly recommended and his bedside manor is impeccable. Run, don't walk to Dr. Nguyen
Amazing!! First time in years I'm pain free and just 2 months post op!! I have no pain. He is amazing!
Dr. Lam explains very well. He is compassionate and thorough. He actually listened. He addressed every issue. He changed my life! Highly recommend him for complex spine issues or revisions. He also kept in touch with family when they came down to care for me during surgery.
Had surgery a month ago and I'm doing amazing!! I had cervical surgery and I highly recommend Dr. Nguyen!!
Dr Nguyen is my second spine md and was great! And I spoke with another patient who had a great surgery so I went forward and he made me healthy again!! My life is a lot better. Thanks Dr. Nguyen!

I saw Dr. Nguyen as a work comp patient. He is so kind and takes the time to listen. I highly recommend him for any back surgery. I was scared and made me feel great 3 months later! 5 big stars for Dr. Nguyen
He has helped me so much. We relocated from Michigan and his treatment is like no other. He caught the misdiagnosed. I'm so glad I met him!
I love his bedside manor. He was truthful and got to the bottom of my pain. I would recommend him to everyone with spine pain.
I am so grateful I went thur this surgery. He is amazing and upbeat. Very confident he could so this surgery. He is very focused and loves what he does! Highly recommend.
From years of pain and major back surgery dr. Nguyen got me a si joint injection. No me had even suggest an si joint injection. I have been in pain 7 years! I am now pain free! Awesome bedside manor. And his nurse complements him with her bubbling personality.
Dr. Nguyen did an amazing job. He took away all my lower back pain. He gave me back the ability to walk fully erect again. Carolyn is a sweetly, too! Thank you Dr. Nguyen.
I am pain free for the first time in 11years! Elated with Dr Nguyen. Amazing bedside manor. He explained the surgery in perfect detail. Highly recommended!
Dr. Lam is great! Best listener ever! He didn't rush surgery. He took his time and explained what was happening to me. Personal and professional and capable. 34 years I suffered until he did my surgery! Best md's ever!
He is very thorough. Spends lots of time with you and allows time for answers. I have told Everyone about Dr. Nguyen and KWOC!!
I think Dr. Nguyen. He takes his time. He really tried to find the problem. He had a great plan and I've been to several md's and he was the most accurate. Other md's didn't even address the SI joint. Highly recommended!
Dr. Nguyen is wonderful. He takes his time to explain. All other md's wanted to do surgery just because I have scoliosis. It was my SI joint, not scoliosis! He is great.
I felt great from the moment I woke up from surgery!! The Best md ever!
Dr. Nguyen saved my life! After 6 spine surgeons I found the one!! I woke up after surgery a new woman!! I got my life back!!
Dr. Nguyen is fabulous. I've had 5 back surgeries and he is superior! Greatest asset is he listens!!!! I have my life back!!!
Great mad! The procedure he suggested worked. I am pain free for the first time in years!! Wish I met him years ago!!!
He is the greatest! I feel great. Very professional. A must see me!
He is great! Very compassionate! Highly recommended
Dr Nguyen is a miracle worker. I have and will continue to recommend patients to him. He restored my active quality of life 100 percent. Carolyn has always been available to help me through this very long process, and is a dedicated professional.
It would not be possible to put in words how much Dr. Nguyen has improved my quality of life with the surgery he performed On my back! He explained everything very clearly as to what would be done and what the expected outcome would be. He included my husband in everything all along. I have already given his name to a few people and will continue to do so. Thank you Dr. Nguyen.
Very good doctor. Very pleas and very clear in his explaining.
He is excellent!!! Changed my life! This is my 11th surgery! He fixed me!!

Dr. Nguyen is very thorough, compassionate and I had a wonderful experience!
I can't say enough about Dr. Nguyen. He is the best! My neck and back were both fused and I'm great. I can turn my neck now!!!
I was in severe pain from a herniated disc for more than 6 months. Another doctor put me on steroids, pain pills and 2 epidural injections - all did not relieve my pain. Dr. Nguyen got me in right away for a Laminectomy! I am thrilled to report at my 6 week check up today, I have ZERO pain! Thank you Dr. Nguyen!
He is a lifesaver! I was out of options until I met him
My back feels amazing thanks!!!!
This dr. Scores high with me in every which wayüòälpersonality,intelligence about the field,puts patients at ease,not in hurry,and I could go on and on with dr. Nguyen and his positive attributes....
Dr. Nguyen is now my hero! He diagnosed my bursitis, which I thought was sciatica, and treated me so that when I returned for my follow-up 6 weeks later I was pain free! Great doctor and great bedside manner to boot! I recommend him highly!!
He listens and welcomed feedback. He gave conservative fixes vs rushing to surgery! Highly recommended.
First visit for back. Have been to famous Rothman Institute in Philly. Dr Nguyen was thorough, courteous, and a superb communicator. I was extremely impressed! First class.
Dr. Nguyen is very attentive, smart and I feel better! He solved my low back pain
Dr. Nguyen, As a retired surgeon with complicated lower back spinal stenosis chronic disease, I am very impressed by dr. Nguyens very thoughtful analysis of my problem and offers a spectrum of alternatives and their risks. Further, he offered wait and see, pain medicines, and possible anesthetic injection. At 81 years of age, such a thorough consultation is unusual and I am thankful for this level of care and concern. Gregory Hetter, M. D.
I went to the ER. He did emergency surgery and I feel like a million bucks!
Dr Nguyen is awesome. Very personable and helped my back!! Delightful personality.
Dr Nguyen was very friendly and knowledgeable. He took the time to show me the problem areas on the computer screen. He suggested several ways to help alleviate symptoms and gave me options. I am so glad I was able to see him.

Dr Nguyen suspected some of my pain was my si joint. Sure enough with a injection the pain is greatly improved. He is cordial and knowlegable. Very impressed
I am very happy with Dr. Nguyen, he takes the time to talk,explain and answer questions..He is very personable. Have seen other Drs at Kennedy white and feel very satisfied with all.But Dr, Nguyen is my favorite
He is the finest doctor in his field in this area. I havent found great md's since I left NY for spines. He sincerely listens.
Since meeting DR. Nguyen I have been so impressed with his knowledge and his total concern with my progress. I would recommend him to anyone
My surgery was great!! I woke up in recovery pain free!
Excellent doctor. Explains everything and answers all questions. Very personable.
