Having lived in the Washington area for over four decades, Michelle Nguyen, MD is committed to providing excellent care to her patients. She has over 17 years of experience in clinical medicine. She attended the University of Virginia for her undergraduate work and received the honor of being named an Echols Scholar. She remained at UVA to complete her medical school training.
Subsequently, Dr. Nguyen returned to the D.C. area and joined Georgetown University Medical Center for her residency training. She was active with the Georgetown medical community and was appointed Assistant Clinical Professor. Her Georgetown experience allowed her to work with many experts in the field of obstetrics and gynecology, thus strengthening her knowledge of ultrasonography; this expertise with ultrasound has benefited her patients in the assessment and treatment of their venous insufficiency. She has a special interest in the treatment of venous ulcers, stasis dermatitis, sclerotherapy and minimally invasive vein care.
Dr. Nguyen has performed over a thousand venous ablation procedures. Her dedication to her patients has resulted in her being named a Top Doctor in Washingtonian magazine.
After these rewarding professional milestones, Dr. Nguyen is proud to now serve on the team at Center for Vein Restoration, where the physicians have rededicated their careers to bringing relief to patients coping with venous disease.
“I enjoy the interaction with patients and having the time to fully discuss their disease process. I take gratification in the ability to use my surgical skills to effect a dramatic change in patients’ everyday life.”
Her dedication to providing state-of-the-art treatments comes at an important time – an estimated 40 million Americans now suffer from vein disease. Medical practice is rapidly advancing to reduce the suffering from painful symptoms, and yet it’s still too often an under-diagnosed condition.
“My interest in venous disease stems from having family members with venous insufficiency and seeing firsthand the change in their lives with treatment. The minimally invasive venous procedures increase people’s independence, allowing them to be active and thus improving their overall quality of life.”
Dr. Nguyen describes her personal work in the field of venous insufficiency and areas where he has a particular focus:
“I would describe my specialty within this field as providing individualized treatment plans for each patient.”
