Dr. Truong is the best physician I have ever had the pleasure of taking care of my health care needs! He is very up front, takes care of my questions and concerns regarding my health. He has a great sense of humor and shows a true concern for his patients. I feel I can ask him any question regarding my health and he will give me an answer and not patronize me. I feel so fortunate to have Dr. Truong as my primary internal medicine doctor. UT Health is fortunate to have him as one on their physicians.
