Dr. Tran's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Tran "Dr. Dat Q. Tran is a board-certified allergist and immunologist who treats allergic and immunologic conditions affecting adults and kids. His expertise is in food allergy, allergic rhinitis, eczema, asthma, drug allergy, immune disorders, recurrent infections, dysautonomia, autoimmunity and oral immunotherapy. He received his BS in Biochemistry, summa cum laude and his MD degree at Tulane. He did his pediatric residency at Texas Children's Hospital and then went to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) for his allergy/immunology fellowship and research training. Afterward, he joined UTHealth McGovern Medical School in 2009 as an Assistant Professor of Pediatrics. Soon after, he received a prestigious NHLBI/NIH R01 grant funding to conduct research in immune tolerance for transplantation and graft-versus-host disease. In 2015, he was promoted to Tenured Associate Professor. His passion has been in research and providing innovative treatments for patients. He has always been frustrated with the management of food allergy. Avoidance and an epinephrine auto-injector for the management of food allergy is NOT a treatment. In the pursuit of better treatments and clinic care for patients, he opened Innovative Allergy Clinic in June 2017 to provide innovative oral immunotherapy for the treatment of food and environmental allergies. He had resigned his tenured position and is now an Adjunct Associate Professor. He continues to do research and teaching at UTHealth. He is married to his beautiful wife, Holly, who is a pediatric nurse practitioner at Texas Children's Hospital. He has two awesome kids and inventors, Rilina and Dylan. Together, the family also operates their toy company, Tranovation, which makes innovative toys, such as BubbleLick, BubbleBliss and BubbleJazz."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Tran "The art of medicine and patient care is to focus on the patient and provide the most meaningful care. Use medicines appropriately and effectively to treat a condition and be vigilant of when to discontinue treatment to minimize side effects. In other words, don't just prescribe medicines but have a treatment plan and expectation. If the expectation is not achieved, then change the treatment plan. Maintain good communication and transparency with the patients and always be accessible. Ultimately, success is seeing my patients and saying hello to them in the parks, grocery stores and community.  "
