About Me

As a clinical neuropsychologist, I assess patients for cognitive and psychiatric changes due to illness or brain injury. I believe that an attentive and thorough assessment leads to the proper identification of cognitive strengths and weaknesses, which I use to develop individualized treatment plans. Regardless of diagnosis, I think it’s important to consider what patients are capable of doing and what strategies can be employed to help them feel they are still contributing to their environment and reaching their goals.

I truly enjoy getting to know my patients and creating strong patient-physician relationships. I strive to view my patients through a biopsychosocial lens, recognizing biological factors as well as psychological – mood, personality, and behavior – and social factors – cultural, familial, and socioeconomic identities – to create a more holistic and well-rounded plan of care.

In my free time, I like to enjoy a good cup of coffee and spend time with family and friends.

Consulting and Related Relationships

At The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, we support a faculty member’s research and consulting in collaboration with medical device, research and/or drug companies because a faculty member’s expertise can guide important advancements in the practice of medicine and improve patient care. In order to provide effective management of these relationships, the University requires annual disclosures from all faculty members with external interests related to their University responsibilities.

As of 10/25/2021, Dr. Nguyen has reported no relationships with companies or entities.
