There is not enough good things I can say about DR. Tranakas. I was referred to him after my dermatologist found malignant melanoma in my arm. Dr. Tranakas was so kind to me and answered all my questions about surgery, etc. I never felt rushed or like my visit wasn't important. On the day of my surgery, the nurses who attended to me also had ONLY great things to say about Dr. Tranakas. I feel very blessed that he was able to help me and I highly recommend him to anyone.
