I have to get her attention if something has changed to get her to hear me. After that, she listens.

National Jewish Health PatientApril, 2021
dr truong is a wonderful doctor who always takes the time to listen! I have tremendous confidence in her

National Jewish Health PatientJanuary, 2021
Dr. Troung was a pleasure to talk to. She spent more than usual time explaining the concerns I came to see her for. She also allowed me to ask all the questions I needed to feel confident about the treatment plan she proposed. She then reiterated everything we discussed in her written report so that I could review it at a later time. I felt like I was in good hands and felt confident I would receive the best care for my condition. I would recommend Dr. Troung to anyone who needs to speak to a rheumatologist without hesitation.

National Jewish Health PatientJanuary, 2021
I found Dr. Trung very personable and knowledgable.

National Jewish Health PatientJanuary, 2021
I love my nice doctor.

National Jewish Health PatientJanuary, 2021
Dr Troung was an angel sent from heaven! I was so worried about my condition and the stress was even causing me hair loss and after I my first appointment with Dr Troung I felt like I finally understood my condition because she explained everything so well and in words that I could understand. I have total confidence in Dr Troung and everyone I saw at the hospital. Would highly recommend National Jewish to anyone...... that hospital is outstanding and everyone that I came in contact with from the valet, front desk, nurses and Dr Troung were friendly, courteous, informative, caring and as a retired My total experience at National Jewish Hospital was outstanding,

National Jewish Health PatientJanuary, 2021
This is the first time that I feel Dr Troung was not in a rush and spent some time with me.

National Jewish Health PatientJanuary, 2021
