I’d like to start this off by saying the medical assistant and woman at the front desk were extremely helpful and very sweet. My only issue is with the doctor I saw, Loc Nguyen. I went to establish care, bring up concerning health issues I’ve been facing for an entire month and talk about upping my mental health meds. It him all but five minutes to mention my weight. Stating “my obesity is likely a cause for some of these issues” I politely told him I was not there to speak about my weight, I am not concerned about my weight. I am concerned about a different medical issue. He apologized which I appreciate but then he continuously brought it up again throughout the appointment. I am a perfectly healthy person, my cholesterol and my A1C are in great healthy range, I have hereditary conditions that he perhaps mistook as issues related to weight. They aren’t, they’re genetic. At the end of the appointment he showed me his after care notes that said “obese from excessive calorie intake.” Now if this man would of had an actual conversation with me about my body he’d know I’ve been struggling with an eating disorder since I was a teenager. He’d know I’ve been too sick to eat more than one meal a day for the past month. He’d know I’ve dropped 30 pounds since February but he never asked. It was easier for him to just dismiss me as a fat person. Which is absolutely disgusting and I will be finding another PCP, my only suggestion is that UNLV family medicine perhaps teaches their staff to get more history on a patient before looking at their body mass index and writing them off. I’m thoroughly disappointed.
DN GO HERE your assigned to a dr that you’ll never see only there PA assistant I had mirena IUD just place in ended up sending me to the hospital with panic attack so many other problems it took me a while to go back to the doctor since I did nothing for me when I was going through so many hospitals I was not able to work lost my job do to alway being in the hospital I was not able to take my kids to school I gaining 40 pounds in three months due to my hormonal imbalance I finally decided to do a check up with my doctor 7 months later because IUD effect was already out of my system and I was feeling so much better but I was still dealing with the weight gain I told her all of my concerns she didn’t even bother to do any blood work general check up just blush me off Send me to OB/GYN to get another birth control since her concern was that I should not be without birth control I family found a doctor that has done so much more work to be in genuine interested in helping me out which that’s what doctors are for unfortunately there’s so many places like this place that all they want is your insurance your money

The way I was talked to by the receptionist was, shocking. Will not be going back.
