Joshua Nguyen, MD

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

My passion as a primary care physician is health education, whether I'm involved with the training of medical or nursing students. I feel that knowledge should be shared with patients as well. As a family physician, I believe that preventive medicine requires more than just the disbursement of medications. I feel strongly that an informed patient is healthier and happier. In my MDVIP-affiliated practice, we constantly strive to provide everyone with individualized and personalized healthcare services. I do not take lightly the privilege that comes with being a primary care provider.

I may be your family physician, but I also have special interests in migraine headaches, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, hypertension, and wellness. Our office has been located in the Galleria area of Houston since 2005. We are affiliated with Methodist, St. Luke's and the Memorial Hermann hospital systems.
