    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.

    Doctors here do not care about your health. I wanted a specific test to be order , and he says you don’t need it to young and healthy , also referrals to a specialist do not give . I will be changing PCP as soon as possible . Do not recommend this clinic .

    Apparently the doctors here can't bother to send your prescription to the pharmacy when you ask them to at your appointment or bother to check if the place they send your labs to for blood work takes your insurance. Won't be going back since this place can't even seem to get the easy stuff down.

    DO NOT GO HERE IF YOU CARE ABOUT YOUR LIFE AND HEALTH. The office staff were always pretty good, I went for general family medicine. Almost every time I change doctors and have to tell them over and over again what is wrong even though its in the notes. The last time I went, which is the last time I plan to step foot in the building, 2 male drs. refused to what a female dr. had set in place for me. X-rays, if those were good then move to mri's. They didn't even have my xrays and had to request them after calling and saying they received them. I was told all of my pain was due to my weight even though when I was 50 lbs lighter I had the same issues. Told them I can't get up more than 2 flights of stairs without my knee and leg hurting so bad I have to sit down... but ya know thats my weight and not something that is making my knee swell to 2 times its size. He told me "well yeah its going to kinda hurt after you use it (knee) all day.. " no this is after I wake up in the morning and go down to make coffee. My comments were ignored. I also went in for massive back pain from an injury and some major head pain/dizziness/vomiting/etc and was told to take ibuprofen after telling them over and over I can't take Ibuprofen. Just went in to get MRI ordered and move on to figure out what the hell is wrong. Nope, gotta lose weight and drink water. OH! DON'T FORGET THE COVID VACCINE THEY KEPT TALKING ABOUT! My back is constantly in pain "ok well, are you vaccinated?" Takes a deep breath and back spasms, the pain is right there! "well the vaccine is really recommended"... when I ask about the pain they change topics back to what they won't do and the vaccine. LONG STORY SHORT. Find someone else. I did and my new Dr. already identified that my knee pain is from a slightly torn meniscus and tendon damage that may require repair surgery. I have a brain scan coming up, as my symptoms point towards tumors and warning signs of strokes. My back, got an MRI for that coming up, the running theory is a torn muscle.
