Dr. Truong has been my physician for more than 23 years. Without a doubt he has been the best doctor I have ever had. He is professional, extremely knowledgeable and genuinely concerned with the health of his patients. There have been times where I had visited friends at Mission Hospital. On more than one occasion I have seen him in the halls on his way to visit his patients after regular hours. I specifically remember seeing him after 9 pm, still taking care of his patients. He is a true humanitarian and a true healer. I am very fortunate to have him as my doctor. Dr. Truong is the Best!

I've seen endocrinologists in nine states over a period of 50 years for treatment of juvenile-onset Type 1 diabetes, including nationally recognized experts at The Joslin Center and Mass Gen. Dr. Truong is the very best.
