Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Trinh "I like the one on one contact I have with my patients. I see all of my patients personally. I pride myself on providing the best patient care and feel like communication between myself and my patients are a key to our partnership. My patients appreciate that I am more on the conservative side of spine care. If a patient does need surgery, they can expect successful outcomes as a result of my many years of experience and surgical skills."
