About Dr. Khanh Nguyen


Doctor Khanh Nguyen has practiced internal medicine for over 20 years, with the last 10 years in Austin, Texas.

Born in Saigon, Vietnam, Dr. Nguyen came to the United States alone in 1982 as a refugee seeking freedom and the opportunity to fulfill her childhood dream of pursuing a career in medicine. With hard work and dedication, she graduated from high school with high honors and earned a full scholarship to USC with a major in biology.

She received her bachelor's degree in biology from the University of Southern California (USC) and her Medical Doctor degree from Rush Medical College in Chicago, Illinois. After completing her residency in internal medicine, she pursued further advanced training under a fellowship in Critical Care Medicine at Rush.  She also received additional training in regenerative medicine including bioidentical hormone therapy, and regenerative medical and aesthetic procedures using biologics.

Dr. Nguyen has always been a firm believer in the "whole person" approach to health and treatment modalities, promoting a healthy lifestyle through counseling in diet, exercise, sleep and meditation. These beliefs are what led her to discover regenerative medicine, which focuses on using your own body's biologics to promote repair, restoration and regeneration.

Since she promotes an active, happy, and healthy lifestyle and became very interested in the relatively new field of regenerative aesthetics. These leading-edge, safe, natural and effective procedures allow patients to look and feel their best to match their inner younger feelings with all available anti-aging therapies.

Within a short time, Dr. Nguyen has become a local and national authority in the fields of Regenerative Medicine and Regenerative Aesthetics through teaching other healthcare providers, public speaking, seminars, and participating in various ongoing research studies.
