Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Tran "I have been with Lake Surgical Associates for the past seven years. I firmly believe in an open and "down to earth" relationship with my patients. Communication is important to patients and family, not only for their education, but also to ease any anxiety that the patients may have during, before, or after his or her procedure."
