Dr. Ngo is the president and founder of Novah Healthcare; an interdisciplinary clinic specialized in treating chronic and acute pain. He is a strong advocate for integrated healthcare as it provides patients with the skills to identify and manage their levels of pain by themselves.

Dr. Ngo previously led a team at Mount Sinai Hospital that specialized in assessing and treating patients who suffered from complex, chronic, non-cancer pain. There, he recognized that chronic pain is multifaceted and is best treated by truly understanding all the physical, psychological and social aspects of a person’s life. In 2017, Dr. Ngo began Novah Healthcare with the mission of providing customized treatment plans which aim to empower patients with the confidence to manage pain by themselves.  Due to his forward thinking approach, Dr. Ngo has become a recognized figure within the health sector and is featured on platforms such as TEDx and Lifespeak.
