*Dr. Ngan has helped diagnose two very tricky issues for me personally. His willingness to listen and always explain everything has helped me make the best decisions regarding my health. I feel like many doctors would not have taken the time to correctly diagnose issues and would have given up, rather than go the extra mile and beyond. I have already recommended *Dr. Ngan to a family friend.
