John Nguyen, MD, MPH
I am a Seattle-area native. I grew up in Burien, WA and I attended high school right here in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Seattle where I currently practice medicine. I was inspired to go into medicine when my father was involved in a car accident resulting in significant medical needs. I attended Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, MD for my undergraduate degrees. After college, I volunteered in the Peace Corps teaching English in Mozambique. When I returned to the states, I attended the University of Washington for medical school and completed my residency in Family Medicine at the University of Arizona in Tucson. I love Family Medicine because of the broad scope of practice and the relationships that I develop with my patients. I love working with resident physicians because it requires me to stay up-to-date on current medical guidelines and reinforces/expands my own medical knowledge. I enjoy working at Kaiser Permanente because of our medical home model where I truly feel like I can practice a wide breath of family medicine with the support of our specialty colleagues.
