Patient Comments (9)

Undoubtedly competent, however very long office wait time. This time over two hours and was still waiting. I walked out. Very poor office scheduling/management. If this had been a one time occurrence, I’d have passed it off. Wait time has been way too long every time. Will not go back.

I had a very nice experience at Dr. Tran's office for my eye exam. She took the time to thoroughly answer all my questions and explained each part of the exam to me as she could tell I was nervous. Her staff was very courteous and friendly. I would definitely recommend her to family and friends.
