Linh H. Nguyen, MD

Dr. Nguyen became a pediatrician for two reasons: she loves children and she truly wants to help shape the way they will view the importance of health so they can grow up to be healthy adults. "I believe in the power to change a child’s wellbeing through preventive care and also partnering with the parents to achieve the best care possible for their child. I work to build trust, understanding, and good communication with both my patient and their parents. Within the broad range of pediatrics, I have special interests in Asthma and childhood obesity."

"I am excited to be back in the Long Beach area with its very diverse population. My background has taught me to appreciate different cultures and although I am obviously of Vietnamese heritage, I grew up in Warsaw, Poland, before coming to the US. Hence, I speak Polish as well as Vietnamese, English and conversational Spanish."

In her spare time, Dr. Nguyen likes to go hiking and rock climbing, do yoga, run with her dogs, or relax and read a mystery. She also enjoys traveling and exploring new places and cultures.
