Angela Nguyen, DO

 

Growing up, Angela Nguyen felt at ease going to doctor’s appointments. “I remember interacting, not just with the medical staff but with residents in training and doctors who made my experience smooth and streamlined,” she said “I always appreciated my providers asking me if I had questions, even when I was only in middle school. It made an impression on me and influences me now to take the time to explain things clearly to my own patients who may not be native English speakers. That 15 or 20-minute interaction may impact someone for the rest of their lives.”

Dr. Nguyen believes that good health can affect every aspect of a patient’s life. “Think about how you feel when you have a common cold,” she said. “Now imagine living a life with chronic medical conditions that require multiple medicines and multiple doctor visits and how that could be hindering your quality of life. As physicians, we can often walk into a patient’s room with our own agenda. I want to be the doctor who slows down and really listens. I want to remember patients are people whose concerns deserve to be heard.”

Growing up with traditional Chinese medicine, Dr. Nguyen learned to use food and herbs as a means of healing and promoting wellness. “What you put in your body—those nutrients from what you eat and drink—should fuel your body.”  Now as an osteopathic doctor, she partners with patients and takes a holistic approach to wellness. “As osteopaths, we’re trained to promote the body’s natural tendency toward health and self-healing, while also incorporating the latest evidenced-based medical practices and latest technology. We also have additional training in osteopathic manipulative treatment to help diagnose and treat illness and injury.”

Dr. Nguyen evaluates each patient’s lifestyle and environment and how it affects their health. “In a typical visit, I sit down and listen to what’s going on with the patient’s home, family, and work,” she said. “I’m interested in each patient’s mental, physical, and spiritual wellness—not just symptoms.”

Texas born and raised by Chinese immigrant parents, Dr. Nguyen obtained her undergraduate degree in biochemistry from The University of Texas at Austin. She went on to obtain her Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine degree from UNTHSC Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine in Fort Worth, TX. Completed her residency training at The University of Texas at Austin Dell Medical School Family Medicine Program. While in residency, she volunteered at the KIND clinic in Austin providing services for sexual health and wellness, including HIV prevention treatment, PrEP, PEP and gender care services. “I’d like to do something similar in the DFW area,” she said. “I really enjoy providing care to a variety of patient populations, including the urban underserved. I’d also like to make more international mission trips and one day work with Doctors Without Borders.
