I've been with Dr. Truong at least 10 years. He has been a great internist, very concerned and thorough. My recent visit was worked in at the last moment on Friday afternoon and he made comments on the lab results Saturday afternoon on my patient portal. Very well pleased with him.

I've been with Dr. Truong for at least 10 years. He is an excellent internist with personal concern for his patients. My recent visit was a last minute work in on a Friday afternoon. He made comments on the lab work on my patient portal on Saturday afternoon. Very well pleased to have him as my primary care provider.

Dr. Truong is an excellent physician. From the time he enters the exam room and warmly greets you he begins to do something very important. HE LISTENS! He asks questions and you have his undivided attention. He is very concerned with symptoms and explains any and all procedures. I have never felt rushed through an appointment, even during COVID when offices were packed. Dr. Truong is very thorough leaving nothing to chance. He has excellent communication skills and it is obvious he genuinely cares about his patients. Making an appointment to see Dr. Truong by phone is quick and easy. Also, by using the My Chart app, it's easy to check lab results or ask any follow up questions. I am very pleased to have Dr. Truong as my doctor and HIGHLY recommend him and his staff.



Love this place… Dr. Truong and his staff are great… you aren’t just a patient… they make you feel like family… very friendly comfortable and relaxing atmosphere … From the front office to the back… wonderful caring people!!! I’m glad I made a switch… no regrets!!!
