Happy Stories

Here are some of our patient's reviews.
Dr. Nguyen is an amazing foot doctor. He did ingrown toenail surgery for my grandson and for myself and I can tell you that he tells you step by step what he is doing and neither one of us felt any pain at all. He is the most kind and professional doctor I have ever had. If you are having problems with ingrown toenails you need to call The Gentle Foot Care. 👣❤️
I used to live in HSV and came to see Dr Nguyen for my toe nail after a salon visit gone wrong. I moved to the panhandle in Florida and I drive the 7 hrs just to see him! I won’t go to another podiatrist ever!! Him and his receptionist are that good and nice! He SAVED my funky nail!
As an RN I am picky with regard to my health care. This doctor actually read my medical history... was caring... teachitive... great bedside manner... would recommend him to anyone... wish I could say that for other specialties
Dr Van was so nice to work me in to perform surgery on my infected ingrown toenail. He was very meticulous and made sure that I was very comfortable. He even stayed after hours. The staff was kind & accommodating. I will return if I need his services again.
Dr. N is very nice. He took X-Rays of my feet which no other doctor has ever offered to do. He explained my problem and will make me custom arch supports. He was very reasonable on the cost. We drove one hour through a rain down pour, but it was worth the effort.
