Meet Dr. Victoria Nguyen, ND
I am a native to the greater Seattle area, where I received my bachelors in Biology at the University of Washington and my doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine at Bastyr University. I am trained in primary care but I have a strong interest in women's health.
I have worked with women on various conditions such as PMS, cycle regulation, PCOS and menopause. During clinical rotations at Bastyr Center for Natural Health, I was at external clinical sites where I worked with the underserved and homeless communities as well as working with adolescents, helping them with problems such as sleep, anxiety, depression and optimizing diet and exercise. I enjoy incorporating health education and prevention into my visits with my patients.
My philosophy is to treat each person with respect. I focus on treating the cause while focusing on the whole person. My main goal as a practitioner is to provide a supportive, inclusive environment that cultivates a patient’s active engagement in their health. By educating my patients, I believe they are able to take a more active role in their health. I also understand that not everyone is in the same place in their life and I honor what patients are willing to do for their own health and I want to meet my patients where they are at. However, I also have the expectation that patients must be accountable for their own health. I can be supportive with tools and information, but I believe that it is ultimately the patient that has control over their healing process.
During my free time, I try to soak up as much of what the Pacific Northwest has to offer as possible, whether that’s hiking, going for a run, or just going on an adventure, rain or shine. My husband and I are avid Seattle sports fans and we try to go to as many football, baseball and soccer games as possible. I also love food and am always looking for new recipes and restaurants to try!
