During medical school she participated in a volunteer mission to Vietnam and worked as a translator for surgeons and patients receiving a variety of surgical procedures.
As a doctor of osteopathic medicine, she believes in a holistic approach to medicine that simultaneously attends to the mind, body, and soul-a practice she took with her to residency at Rutgers New Jersey from 2011 to 2015. through her training she developed an interest in minimally invasive surgery, family planning and high risk obstetrics.
Dr. Nguyen joins The Women’s Health Center after a few too many East Coast winters, and is happy to be back home in California. She enjoys hiking, bouldering, and recently took up photography to document her adventures.
