Dr. Tran's Care Philosophy

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.
