Dr. Trang is my new best friend. He identified a tumor in my ear that other doctors had missed even the House Ear Institute which in my opinion is way over rated. In a nutshell, the man saved my life and I will forever be in his debt. God bless and thank you Dr. Trang

Dr Trang is the best. He found my neck and throat cancer after three doctors (a radiologist, another ENT, and a pathologist) said my lump was benign. He put me on the fast track to cancer treatment. Then after treatment he removed the tumor. I credit him to saving my life.
