“CARING” is our philosophy:
Commitment. At Tykes to Teens Pediatrics, we are committed to taking the very best care of children. Whether it’s caring for newborns or sick children in the hospital or clinic, Dr. Nguyen will be there for her patients from birth through the teenage years.
Amiable. Our belief is to treat patient families like our friends. We know that smiling is contagious. That is why you will always find friendly smiles from our staff at each visit.
Receptive. Every family is unique and therefore may have specific concerns. At Tykes to Teens Pediatrics, we take the time to listen to our parents and patients, staying opened-minded to our families’ needs. We believe that good care starts with good listening first.
Innovative. Our staff and physician keep up to date with the latest information in pediatric medicine. Living in a modern society, we understand that keeping up with the latest technology and diagnostic equipment is important to staying current. One example of this is our use of an electronic medical record (EMR) system. So access to charts is as simple as a click of a button.
Never-Ending Fun. A physician’s office is not always equated with “fun”. But at Tykes to Teens Pediatrics, we feel that having fun is the best way to help sick patients heal and stay healthy. It’s easy for us to have fun because we love what we do.
Guidance. As our name implies, we enjoy seeing children from newborns to teenagers. All children develop in their own unique way. At Tykes to Teens Pediatrics, we provide guidance and advice to help parents nurture their little ones into young adulthood.
Choosing a good physician for your child can be one of the most important decisions one makes as a parent. That is why we invite prospective patient families to visit our office, sit down with Dr. Nguyen, and meet the staff.
