Dr. Tran is wonderful and caring. I feel very lucky to have her as my doctor.
Patient | January 15, 2018

Dr. Tran came highly recommended. At this point, my confidence is based more in faith than experience.
Patient | January 15, 2018

Good experience.
Patient | January 10, 2018

Dr. Tran was loud, hurried and busy. No explanation of the reason for my decline in vision was given until I squeezed a question in about the % of vision loss due to cataracts formation/growth. She seemed oblivious to the fact that I would want to know the why of the decline.
Patient | January 2, 2018

love my eye doctor
Patient | December 20, 2017

brief time with provider, but she was very interested in my questions and I think short visits are probably normal for this specialty
Patient | December 19, 2017

After seeing two other providers for cataract surgery, Dr. Tran explained that the surgery would not resolve my problem. She referred me to someone to have my eyeglasses prescription changed. One of the other providers was very eager to perform surgery and to fit me with top of the line lenses to "correct my vision without glasses." I very much appreciate Dr. Tran's honesty. One day I will need cataract surgery, and she will be my choice.
Patient | December 17, 2017

Dr. Tran is perfect in every way.
Patient | December 8, 2017

Tran was a new doctor for me. She was wonderful. I'm glad to have her as my doctor.

She seems as if she is in a huge rush. Not a lot of time to squeeze in questions. She is super nice though, and knowledgeable.
Patient | December 7, 2017

Good !

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.
