    Physician Bio

    Dr. Tam Nguyen is board certified by the American Board of Family Medicine
    and has been treating patients of all ages since 2008. Beginning on the
    East Coast, Dr. Nguyen earned his BA at Johns Hopkins University in Maryland,
    followed by his medical degree at Pennsylvania State University College
    of Medicine. He completed his Family Practice residency at San Jose-O'Connor
    Hospital in California. After that, Dr. Nguyen served at San Joaquin General
    Hospital as part of their medical staff and clinical faculty and as the
    Family Medicine Chair. In addition to Family Medicine, Dr. Nguyen is also
    board certified in Aesthetic Medicine and can handle minor skin procedures
    in the office. In addition to the skin care, he is interested in diabetic
    care and obesity, and he has been published in medical journals regarding
    these topics.

    “I believe that every patient should get the best and most comprehensive
    care that includes a balance between medical, physical, and holistic approaches.
    For the convenience of the patient, this care should be done under one
    roof as much as possible.”
