I went to Dr. Tranakas for a mole on my breast that changed in color from brown to black. I am so thankful that I went to see him! He understood I was scared and made me feel 100% comfortable with the biopsy being done. I feel we need more physicians like Dr. Tranakas who actually care for their patients. It's a nice feeling to know I have a great general/oncology surgeon for myself, family and friends. Dr. Tranakas is a wonderful physician that I highly recommend. A+++++

Dr. Tranakas is extremely unethical. He preformed unnecessary surgery to remove in-situe melanoma. This is most commonly an in-office procedure, and I was never provided justification for why there was a deviation from the standard treatment. I now have a 4 inch scar on my right shoulder and over $2,000.00 in hospital bills. When I called his office his staff was extremely rude and tried to make me pay an additional fee to obtain records of my visit! I am still waiting for the pathology report!

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.
