About Me

My philosophy is that "the best way to care FOR patients is to care ABOUT your patients". And I do deeply care about the safety and the well-being of each and every patient who has entrusted me with his/her health. It is a privilege and I take this responsibility very seriously. Only the best care, and only when it is truly necessary.

Dr. Trad and his PA, Paul, are unbelievable. It's not often that you find a doctor/PA that you feel truly care about you as person, but these providers do. I highly recommend Dr. Trad and his entire practice.
