    Personal Interests

    Dr. Nguyen is passionate about delivering the best cancer care to patients everywhere. He also enjoys marathon running, road biking and writing

    Philosophy of Care

    Dr. Nguyen is strongly committed to delivering excellent, personalized, compassionate cancer care using the best treatments, including access to clinical trials.

    Educated and trained at Harvard and Stanford for over 15 years, and a former faculty member at Harvard Medical School, Dr. Nguyen brings exceptional medical training to the clinic. “I want to provide the kind of care that I would want for my own family,” he often shares with his colleagues, “the kind of care that uses the latest scientific advances but is personalized for each individual. I never see a patient in front of me, but a mother, father, wife, husband, daughter, or son, with their unique goals in life, their unique hopes and dreams.”

    Dr. Nguyen believes in empowering patients with the latest knowledge to help them make decisions. As a member of the Palo Alto Medical Foundation cancer team, he works with other well-trained, talented physicians, nurses, nutritionists, social workers, physical therapists, and staff to support patients physically and emotionally throughout their treatment course. Because cancer patients cannot wait for certain new, potentially life-saving drugs to be approved, Dr. Nguyen always looks for the most appropriate clinical trials, either within Palo Alto Medical Foundation or at any other institution around the world, for his patients when conventional treatments are no longer effective.

    A rising leader within the global oncology community, Dr. Nguyen co-directs the Vietnam program of the Health Volunteers Overseas/American Society of Clinical Oncology, helping educate the next generation of oncologists and build capacity for cancer care delivery in resource-limited settings.
