About Me

Length of time at OMC:
Before coming to OMC in 2014, I worked in Urgent Care for HealthPartners Clinic in Hugo, MN. Since 2006, I’ve been a physician in the Minnesota Army National Guard.

Why do you like working at OMC?
I enjoy working at Osceola Medical Center for the people, the community and the organization. OMC is an independent organization whose values reflect the people and the community. I work with an amazing, compassionate group of experts. Also, Osceola and Scandia are beautiful, vibrant rural communities.

What is your philosophy of care?
I love people. I love to hear their stories. I love to teach and to coach…so consider me a life coach. My goal in life is to help my patients lead the longest, happiest, healthiest lives they can with grace and dignity. I have spent more than a decade learning the inner workings of the human body, how to fix it when it breaks, and how to prevent illness, so that I can be there at that crucial moment, whether it be the birth of a child, the moment someone decides to lose twenty pounds, a frightening new diagnosis, or moving a loved one to a nursing home. I am nosey, nerdy, and a little bossy (just ask my family). For me, the art of medicine is about the longitudinal relationship I have with my patients and their families, and I am there for every step along the way, which is why I chose family medicine. I also love the science, so be prepared to learn something every time you come in.

What do you like to do when you’re not at OMC?
My husband and I currently live in Scandia, MN with our sons and two dogs named Greta and Quincy. I enjoy reading, gardening (flowers, not vegetables yet), crocheting, theater, traveling, and all things Scottish including kilts and haggis.

Fun Fact about me:
I have been performing with my dad at the Renaissance Festival since 1986 and went through their acting academy at Macalester College at the age of seven.

Dr. Nguyen was amazing. He is so friendly. He answered all your questions. He is very professional. I ... first time we've ever seen him, so I would definitely recommend him as a provider. Our experience was nothing but great, the whole time.

Nicole did a great job on the well child visits. She really encouraged healthy lifestyle, and took time to talk to my daughter and get her feedback, and include her in care.
