Dr. Tran was knowledgeable, but talked at me & not to me. Looked through me. Didn't treat me as a person but rather an obstacle.

I had a scan on my eyes. Nurse told me it was normal but wished I had an opportunity to talk w/doctor after test.

Patient | February 28, 2017

I've been getting medical help with my eye problem at Vanderbilt Eye Clinic since 1974, attended by Dr. J. H. Elliott until he retired, the Dr. Dennis O'Day until he retired and now by Dr. Tren. She is just as thorough and knowledgeable as both of the previous doctors. I trust Dr. Tren with the health of my eye and have recommended 2 patients to her care.

Patient | January 9, 2017

Dr. Tran is very friendly and cordial, but I felt soooo rushed. She quickly looked at what was wrong, diagnosed it, made a prescription and was pretty much on her way out the door without even asking me about a) the glasses prescription I'd just gotten and b) if there was anything else I was there for (answer: my annual checkup as a diabetic). My regular doctor encouraged me to use the Eye Institute instead of going to optometrists in town. There was nothing about this service (given the ridiculous wait times) that made me think I needed to come see Dr. Tran instead of doing what I've been doing.
Patient | January 2, 2017
