Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Tran I left my engineering career and went to medical school first with a goal of seeking an adventure. What medical school taught me and later confirmed by decade of private practice is taking care of patients is the biggest priviledge and blessing that a human can have. There is no better joy than seeing patients getting better after surgery, sometime instantaneously, and returning to their previous levels of functioning. I am humble with patients entrusting their spine to my care which can involve surgery. I hope that my joy of practicing medicine has positive impact on people around me.

in Georgetown, TX |
Dr. Tran is an excellent doctor, he explains very well and is concerned with patient's well being. He is conservative and tries the least invasive method possible first. Highly recommend him.
Austin, TX |
Poor listener. Doesn't attempt to read paperwork that patients are required to fill out.
