National Jewish Health PatientJune, 2020
Dr Truong is very knowledgeable and professional. She has helped me control my [condition] to where it is not interfering with my quality of life at all.

National Jewish Health PatientJune, 2020
She was absolutely fantastic she explain things to me other doctors didn't.

National Jewish Health PatientJune, 2020
I dont believe that she really wants to help me because she does not listen to how I am feeling and what I am saying in an effort to help me improve. When I was there in January she was angry with me and showed it but this time she was much more kind describing her role to me at this point.

National Jewish Health PatientMay, 2020
Dr. Truong was very good in explaining her views of my condition. She was quick at lining up providers she felt should continue with testing. [Off topic]..

National Jewish Health PatientMay, 2020
Very comprehensive and caring Dr.

National Jewish Health PatientMay, 2020
Dr. Truong is the only doctor that seems to really understand how I feel and that helps me put thing into words for my other doctors.

National Jewish Health PatientMay, 2020
