Happy Clinic Denver
In October of 2009, Phil Nguyen, MD, opened Happy Clinic Denver off Parker Road and Mississippi Avenue. The name, Happy Clinic, exemplifies how all of Dr. Nguyen’s services contribute to one’s personal happiness, whether it be cosmetic services, medical marijuana evaluations for pain and other medical conditions, or men’s issues of low testosterone and erectile dysfunction. The Happy Clinic is versatile in what it has to offer and the clinic helps patients from all different backgrounds.
“We have been very successful with the medical marijuana evaluations part of our business,” said Dr. Nguyen. “What separates us from our competition in this area is that we are physician owned. Many dispensaries hire doctors to do the evaluations. Not only is this illegal, but it poses many dangers to the patients.”
“Where are the medical records kept? Does the doctor take them home at the end of the day? If they are left at the dispensary, are the records filed and locked away every night as required by HIPAA regulations? Many of these ‘clinics’ are not run by medical people and they do not abide by strict medical regulations.”
At Happy Clinic Denver, Dr. Nguyen owns and runs his business completely abiding by strict HIPAA guidelines. With Dr. Nguyen’s background in art, he has a definite advantage when performing aesthetic procedures. Any doctor is licensed to give Botox and Juvederm, but technique and an eye for aesthetics makes the difference between a mediocre result and a great result.
One of his specialties is performing the Asian double eyelid surgery. “About 50% of Asians have a single eye lid, which can sometimes make them look tired, sleepy, and even mean,” he said. “These Asians do not want to be Caucasian, and I understand that. Asians want to still look Asian, but better.
Other services provided at the Happy Clinic include laser hair reduction (for hands, underarms, arms, legs, face, etc.), laser vein treatment, and men’s services for low testosterone.
