Born and raised in Saigon, Vietnam, at the age of 18, Dr. Nguyen left his native country to come to the United States to further his education.
In March, 2004, after 8 years with the group, he decided to open a solo practice in Pediatrics, with his wife Hanna Alexander as the Office Manager. Drawing on her customer service skills from her 20 years experience as a travel agent, Hanna has been instrumental in the success of the practice. Together, they wanted to create a pediatric office that delivers excellent care in a friendly, warm and compassionate manner, where the patients and their parents feel like they are coming to a home instead of a cold medical clinic. He juggles for the little ones, and does magic tricks and folds Origami animals for the older ones.
Between the two of them, Dr. Nguyen and Hanna have five grown children from previous marriages: Kim Xuan Nguyen, a veterinarian in Davis, California; Scott Alexander, a Quality Control Manager for a website company, Steven Nguyen, a Certified Financial Analyst for an investment firm, Emil Alexander, a college student and biller in Dr. Nguyen's office, and Nicole Alexander, a college student. They also have 2 grandchildren, Stephanie, and Melanie. Dr. Nguyen spends his leisure time with his wife and her extended family, otherwise he studies magic to perform magic tricks for his patients at the office.
