Dr. Thomas Tuyen, DO, has joined Mount Nittany Health Primary Care at the Mount Nittany Health – Blue Course Drive location.
“I believe the best type of care comes with clear communication and compromise,” said Dr. Tuyen. “No one can be expected to be perfectly healthy, and I think that’s okay. I find that working together with patients to come up with treatment options and plans that will be realistic overall improves health.”
Dr. Tuyen received his Bachelor’s in Science (cum laude) from Juniata College and his Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine from Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine. He completed his family and community medicine residency at Penn State Health at Mount Nittany Medical Center.
“I spent the last three years working side-by-side with the providers, nurses, and staff here at Mount Nittany and always felt welcomed,” said Dr. Tuyen. “I know that the care patients receive here is top notch and I want to continue adding my skills to this community.”
Inspired by diversity, Dr. Tuyen enjoys being able to help people of different backgrounds and perspectives. “Patients teach me about their lives and cultures as much as I can teach them about medicine,” Dr. Tuyen said.
As a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine, Dr. Tuyen believes that osteopathic manipulation is a viable and efficient treatment style. He is a member of the American Osteopathic Association and the American Academy of Family Physicians.
Dr. Tuyen is an avid cook and likes to support local restaurants – a hobby also enjoyed by his wife. One of his pleasures is ordering food in Chinese restaurants using his minimal Cantonese skills.
