Dr. Mua Ngo was born in Kien Giang, Vietnam and immigrated with his family to Oakland, CA as a child. At a young age, he watched his father struggle to access healthcare due to cultural and financial barriers. This motivated him to pursue an education at Brown University and then receive a master’s degree in Public Health from Johns Hopkins. He created several programs to help marginalized communities access healthcare in his home state. Later, after his son’s hospitalization in the NICU, Dr. Ngo decided to take his experience and passion to the world of direct patient care. He received his medical degree from PNWU in 2017.
As a Family Medicine physician, Dr. Ngo is dedicated to empowering people as they navigate the often-convoluted world of healthcare. His goal is to meet his patients where they’re at and give them a framework for understanding their health so they can make well-informed decisions that fit into their lives.
In his free time, Dr. Ngo loves to spend time with his wife and two kids hiking and visiting the outdoors and exploring as many national parks as they can. Their big German Shepherd, Hemingway, and Henry David Theroux (Everest) the cat often join them on their adventures.
