Dr. Truong treated me as a person and listened to my concerns and gave me a thorough physical examination. He is not only concern with my current health, but gives me ideas to preventive medicial care. Dr Truong always answers my concerns either in person or through messaging. He shows true concern for my health.

Dr. N. Truong has been my doctor for the past 6 years. I left my doctor in Canton, Tx.and started seeing Dr. Truong. I liked the receptionist. They were very helpful and friendly. Dr. Truong doesn't rush you through your appointment. Answers questions and is very kind and knowledgeable. He saw me through a mini stroke and a very bad fall that put me in the hospital with bleeding in my brain, my right eye bleeding and a broken elbow. Saw him for care afterwards, and specialists he sent me to. Very glad he is my primary doctor. Highly recommend this UT office. Jo Ann J.
