SHC Patient, Sep 2020

I am very fortunate to have a primary care doctor like Susan Tran. I honestly don't know what I would do without her - period.

SHC Patient, Mar 2020

dr Tran was awesome

SHC Patient, Mar 2020

Dr. Tran is the greatest PC I've ever had.

SHC Patient, Mar 2020

Dr. Tran always shows concern without using her position of power to reprimand me for my weight.

SHC Patient, Mar 2020

I have not needed more time with the doctor but if I did I feel that I could get as much is needed

SHC Patient, Mar 2020

Dr Panday was kind, professional and took time to ask questions and listen to me. This was not my first appointment with her. I feel that she provided good care.

SHC Patient, Feb 2020

I love Dr. Tran. in 61 years,I've never had a doctor like her.

SHC Patient, Feb 2020

HCP was already late to my appointment. The entire time I had with HCP was very short. She basically ordered blood test for me and was gona walk out. I asked couple questions about things that have been bothering me for the past 1-2 years that I have not seen her. But I felt very rushed. Maybe I'm misunderstanding what a yearly checkup is for?

SHC Patient, Jan 2020

I had my previous physician over 20 years, and never thought she could be replaced. In the short time I have seen Dr. Tran, I have come to trust her completely. She is friendly, considerate and very easy to talk with. She treats me like a friend and never hurries our visits.

SHC Patient, Jan 2020

Dr. Tran is great

SHC Patient, Jan 2020

Dr. Tran is fabulous! I totally trust her and her judgment. I feel as I am so blessed to have Dr. Tran as my personal physician.

SHC Patient, Jan 2020

Dr. Tran is truly remarkable and is extremely knowledgeable and professional. She is so caring and concerned. Dr. Tran saved my life on New Years Eve by making every attempt to call me with blood test results indicating I was a candidate for a heart attack.She even called me from her personal phone telling me I had to get to the ER ASAP. She was totally correct with her diagnosis. Also - for this visit Dr. Tran squeezed me into her booked up schedule. There are no words to express my admiration and love for Dr. Tran. I am so fortunate to have Dr. Tran as my physician.

Dr. Tan is very thorough. She filled in for my regular PC Dr. and addressed my concerns.

SHC Patient, Nov 2019

I am moving about 30-40 miles away but will be keeping this Doctor. I felt listened to and taken seriously. Her explanations regarding my medications and tests were easy to understand and explained in detail. I feel very confident in her expertise and will recommend her to others.

SHC Patient, Nov 2019

Very smooth, good experience.

SHC Patient, Oct 2019

Stanford Health Care provider better than my other primary doctor. If need other doctors for any special care - our doctor will provides names (Stanford Health Care) of doctors.

SHC Patient, Oct 2019

caring and knowledgeable

SHC Patient, Oct 2019

Dr Tran was great. I had tried to get her as my primary but she wasn't taking new patients at the time. She was very thorough, gave me options and answered all of my questions.

SHC Patient, Oct 2019

I have recommended this care provider to many friends. Everyone was super friendly and professional

I am very pleased to be able to have Dr. Tran as my primary care provider.

SHC Patient, Oct 2019

We did not discuss medications and none were prescribed.

SHC Patient, Sep 2019

Seemed in a hurry.

SHC Patient, Sep 2019

I felt like my care provider was not taking my concerns seriously and seems to be quick to dismiss me to see her next patient.

SHC Patient, Sep 2019

would go to Dr. Tran even if not covered by insurance.

SHC Patient, Sep 2019

she's very nice and knowledgeable

SHC Patient, Aug 2019

Dr. Tran is very knowledgeable, friendly, easy to talk with, and responds to our concerns.

SHC Patient, Aug 2019

I have seen Dr. Tran in the past but was completely disappointed by my last visit. Not only did she not comfort me during my time of distress, she actually made me feel worst. Her bed-side manner leaves needs a good deal of help and management. When I shared the news of a current situation my life, not only did she ask inappropriate about my current situation, she actually made me feel consider and worry - not something I needed with the level of stress I am dealing with.

SHC Patient, Aug 2019

Excellent

SHC Patient, Aug 2019

Dr. Tran is awesome! She is very knowledgeable and able to diagnose and treat promptly. We feel very fortunate to be in her care.

Dr Tran gave excellent care!

SHC Patient, Dec 2018

very personable

SHC Patient, Dec 2018

Dr. Tran is awesome! She is very knowledgeable and caring.

SHC Patient, Dec 2018

Having my previous health care provider for over 20 years, I was a bit apprehensive at seeing a new doctor. I am very pleased with Dr. Tran. The more I see her, the more relaxed and confident in her skills I have become. She appears to be very interested and concerned with me as a person, not just a patient.

SHC Patient, Dec 2018

Excellent

SHC Patient, Oct 2018

Outstanding

SHC Patient, Oct 2018

Very good, informative visit. I got all my questions & concerns answered.

SHC Patient, Oct 2018

Dr. Tran is one of the best doctors I have had!

SHC Patient, Oct 2018

Dr. Tran always gives careful consideration to my questions and concerns. I recommend her to anyone looking for a primary care doc.

SHC Patient, Sep 2018

Excellent

SHC Patient, Sep 2018

I love how I never get rushed out the door by the doctor. SUCH a great experience!

SHC Patient, Sep 2018

Dr. Tran and staff are great

SHC Patient, Sep 2018

I am new to Dr. Tran, however I am beginning to believe she is super!

SHC Patient, Sep 2018

I'm sad she will be on maternity leave. But happy for her to be a new mom!

SHC Patient, Sep 2018

Dr. Tran is very personable and efficient. She answers any/all questions that I bring etc. etc. The only thing I could at all complain about is that given that I am there for a regular physical checkup, the physical examination seems pretty brief and superficial. I don't remove my clothes. She never asks me any questions. I am not sure if that makes sense. I am just used to a more thorough workup.

SHC Patient, Sep 2018

Dr. Tran is very caring! She thoroughly explains test results or listens to any concerns I have! she is professional, has a wonderfully friendly demeanor!

SHC Patient, Aug 2018

the doctor was excellent in his bed side manners - informing me along the way of my condition and the road ahead

SHC Patient, Aug 2018

I love Dr. Tran!

SHC Patient, Aug 2018

I had to see another dr the week before when Dr. Tran was not available. I was so happy to see Dr. Tran instead this time!

SHC Patient, Aug 2018

I LOVE DR. SUSAN TRAN

SHC Patient, Aug 2018

What Dr. Tran does know, she is very knowledgeable in. However she seems to only know the usual conventional medicine espoused by the general medical community. Was hoping for more current up-to-date medical advice along the lines of integrative & functional medicine, incorporating the latest science.

SHC Patient, Aug 2018

excellent

SHC Patient, Aug 2018

Dr. Tran is very nice and explain things clearly.

SHC Patient, Jun 2018

good

SHC Patient, Jun 2018

Dr Tran was attentive and willing to err on safe side. she ordered test for my peace of mind. Yet asked if I wanted to exclude certain tests.

SHC Patient, Jun 2018

Dr Phan addresses all concerns and was proactive in regards to treating my current health issue and getting standard care scheduled

SHC Patient, Jun 2018

this was easily the best first appointment I've ever had with any medical professional. outstanding from top to bottom. I hope my whole family can become her patients.

SHC Patient, May 2018

Couldn't find better than Dr. Tran

SHC Patient, May 2018

i'm not her regular patient so she didn't seem as concerned with me.

SHC Patient, May 2018

She was wonderful. I never felt rushed. She really listened.She is very knowledgeable!

SHC Patient, Apr 2018

Dr Tran is my new PCP since Dr Singh moved to Texas. I am very happy with Dr Tran. She makes me feel like I am the only patient she has to se that day. Get care and great bed side manner.

SHC Patient, Apr 2018

Dr. Tran and her staff are awesome!

SHC Patient, Apr 2018

Dr Tran was very good, it seems though there are production goals to be attained at the clinic since while she was very good at discussing my history and referral recommendations, she left to get the referral hard copies and told me to stay in the room. The assistant brought the hard copies and Dr. Tran did not come back since I assume she had to see another patient. I would have preferred when she left the room to say goodbye and to expect the assistant to come back in with the referral hard copies.

SHC Patient, Apr 2018

I love my doctor! Dr. Susan Tran is great at her job and awesome to talk to about my concerns.

SHC Patient, Apr 2018

Dr.Tran is very attentive! She listens and responds to issues with explanations, options, and suggestions! She's great!

SHC Patient, Apr 2018

This was the first time I've met with Dr. Tran - she's bright personable.

SHC Patient, Apr 2018

Dr. Tran took time to review my medical history, listened to my concerns, and made suggestions accordingly.

SHC Patient, Apr 2018

Dr Susan Tran recently became my PCP due to Dr Singh's move to another state. I have seen Dr Tran before and I delighted she is my new PCP and I have all the confidence in the world that she will meet all my medical needs.

SHC Patient, Apr 2018

I am picky about the doctors that I see and she definitely exceeds my expectations.

SHC Patient, Apr 2018

She is not taking any new patients.

SHC Patient, Apr 2018

After having to give up a physician I had seen for over 20 years, I am new to Dr. Tran. She is patient and interested in talking, so we are off to a good start. I look forward to getting to know her.

SHC Patient, Apr 2018

Very impressed with Dr. Tran's care.

SHC Patient, Apr 2018

I am always stunned at the relaxed pace of appointments compared to other doctors/clinics I've visited in the past. I never feel rushed out the door like I did before. It's a great experience.

SHC Patient, Apr 2018

Dr. Tran seeks a true partnership with her patients.

SHC Patient, Mar 2018

Dr. Tran went over and above to make me feel comfortable on my first visit.

SHC Patient, Mar 2018

Dr. Tran was very informative and took her time explaining things to me. Never did I feel rushed through the appointment. Wonderful bedside manner and really shows she cares about her patients.

SHC Patient, Feb 2018

Dr. Tran has a great, friendly personality and we felt she really paid attention to us and understood our concerns.

SHC Patient, Feb 2018

She is very informative, and explains any drugs or treatments thoroughly. Although she explains treatments/drugs in an understandable manner, she is never patronizing. In my opinion, Dr. Tran seeks to form a true partnership with patients.

SHC Patient, Feb 2018

We like Dr. Tran very much! She is kind, patient, and very knowledgeable.

SHC Patient, Jan 2018

Dr Susan Tran is Very Qualified and provides me with solid information with regard to my health. Great Doctor!!

SHC Patient, Jan 2018

I've already recommended the doctor to many people. she was informative, an excellent listener and very thorough.

SHC Patient, Jan 2018

Dr. Tran is caring, professional, and very knowledgeable.

SHC Patient, Jan 2018

I felt rushed. There was no point in me filling the paper out with today's concerns because she never even read the second one or offered another appointment. I was not offered a follow up appointment, I had to go and be proactive on my side to get one. The paper said "antibiotics are not effective" but I was prescribed them and had to ask why later. Confusing when I am sick.

SHC Patient, Jan 2018

Susan Tran is a wonderful doc

SHC Patient, Jan 2018

I would highly recommend this office.

SHC Patient, Jan 2018

I'm very pleased with Dr Susan Tran, except that it is extremely difficult to get an appointment with her.

SHC Patient, Jan 2018

Dr. Tran and staff are very thorough. Asked lots of questions, and LISTENED!!!!

SHC Patient, Dec 2017

Dr Tran filled in for my PCP Dr Singh who was on vacation--she dod a very thorough job and showed me the decision tree that she was working from to diagnose my particular medical problem. this made me feel very confident

Dr, Tran addressed all my concerns.

SHC Patient, Nov 2017

Susan Tran is a really good doctor - very consultative. Spends the time necessary to explain things & is the best doctor I have ever had.

SHC Patient, Nov 2017

I enjoyed meeting Dr Tran and look forward to future visits

SHC Patient, Nov 2017

Dr Singh was genuinely concerned about my symptoms before I had planned a holiday trip to see family the next day. she called and texted me to accelerate her recommended next steps just 20 mins after our appt. I am now admitted to Stanford MC and am under the top noch care of their Hemotology dept and am grateful. I'd recommend Dr Singh to anyone.

SHC Patient, Nov 2017

We are very confident in Dr. Tran's medical expertise. She is very professional and puts us at ease with her concern and care.

SHC Patient, Nov 2017

the appointment seemed rushed and the explanation of what would be covered by the physical was not detailed. I dont even recall them checking my weight? not sure it was what I was looking for at all...the scope was not explained. She said it would be thorough but I dont feel that way.

SHC Patient, Nov 2017

Dr Tran is a Smart and Caring Doctor

SHC Patient, Oct 2017

Very good.

SHC Patient, Oct 2017

already recommended to my friends :)

SHC Patient, Oct 2017

I have to build trust with my care provider; it's not something automatic

SHC Patient, Oct 2017

I've already had great conversations about my visit

SHC Patient, Oct 2017

REALLY like Dr. Susan Tran. She listens attentively, makes me feel heard and understood, and has a great outlook on healthcare.

SHC Patient, Oct 2017

DR. SUSAN TRAN WAS WONDERFUL AND I HAVE ALREADY REC. HER TO A FRIEND

SHC Patient, Oct 2017

Dr. Tran supports my desire to learn as much as possible regarding my health conditions.

SHC Patient, Sep 2017

I feel very confident with my care provider and nurse.

SHC Patient, Sep 2017

Excellent experience!

SHC Patient, Sep 2017

My regular primary care physician, Dr. Seaman, was not in the office, but Dr. Tran made room in her schedule to see me promptly and did a perfect job of filling in, with a complete exam and diagnosis, and an effective treatment plan.

SHC Patient, Sep 2017

Quite a nice experience.

SHC Patient, Aug 2017

Another wonderful visit.

SHC Patient, Aug 2017

I'm transferring to Bohannon in October but I want Dr. Tran to still be my PCP. She is wonderful.

SHC Patient, Jun 2017

A++++.

SHC Patient, Jun 2017

listened well.

SHC Patient, Jun 2017

Others may want more experienced and doctor but I am generally satisfied with her experience.

SHC Patient, May 2017

This was my second appointment with Dr. Tran. So far she has been helpful and very knowledgeable.

SHC Patient, May 2017

Dr. Tran is very sweet, she took time to answer all my questions. I'm so glad I found her.

SHC Patient, May 2017

Dr. Tran was great helping me understand gallstones and next steps. She also listened when I said I was adamant about not losing my gallbladder and said based on my test results, she would refer me to a surgeon who could provide not only surgery, but perhaps alternate therapies based on the latest research.

SHC Patient, May 2017

Not my primary physician, but would see her again if possible

SHC Patient, Apr 2017

I feel so blessed to have found Dr. Susan Tran!

SHC Patient, Apr 2017

She is great!!!

SHC Patient, Apr 2017

Dr. Tran was in high gear and very positive, but I did not feel she had any intuitive feel sense of what I face at my stage in life. She offered information about food and portions, but not emotional support. I found her competent, but I think she was putting so much energy into her effort to appear professional, well-informed and authoritative, that she missed any kind of real connection with me.

SHC Patient, Mar 2017

I have already recommended Dr. Tran to others. Dr. Tran is current in medicine and treatment and never leaves me feeling rushed. She always has shown concern and allows me to ask as many questions as I have.

SHC Patient, Mar 2017

No direct follow-up needed. Dr. Tran was excellent. Very easy to talk to and very knowledgeable.

SHC Patient, Mar 2017

Excellent experience for this sick visit.

SHC Patient, Mar 2017

Susan Tran is amazing already recommending to other people.

SHC Patient, Mar 2017

As someone with a unique adverse reaction to a very common/popular treatment, it is a breath of fresh air to finally find a provider that is nonjudgmental about my decisions.

SHC Patient, Feb 2017

very good

SHC Patient, Feb 2017

Dr. Tran really takes the time out to address every single concern that I had. She is very personable and is a great listener. She doesn't rush our appointments and makes you feel taken care of.

SHC Patient, Feb 2017

she's thorough, asking questions and explaining as she examines me! Dr. Tran is a great listener.

SHC Patient, Jan 2017

Dr. Tran is such a caring doctor, she is very thorough.

SHC Patient, Jan 2017

Dr. Tran is stupendous. Very knowledgeable. I feel like she's on "my team" vs adversarial (I have been "shamed" by previous docs for BP, blood #s, etc). She's very cheery and empathetic.

SHC Patient, Jan 2017

Considerate staff to my medical needs.

SHC Patient, Jan 2017

Dr. Tran and her medical assistant, Nicole were very pleasant and helpful. They both seemed genuinely interested in my questions concerns and wanted to provide me with the necessary answers and treatment. I was extremely pleased with them both.

SHC Patient, Dec 2016

I am so happy with Dr. Tran, and have great confidence in her assessments and recommendations. I like her and the clinic so much I've referred them to my OB's medical assistant!

SHC Patient, Nov 2016

I really like Dr Tran and hope to stay with her for many years.

SHC Patient, Oct 2016

Can't say enough positive things about Dr. Tran, Nichole, and Assistant - Dr. Tran filled in for my regular Dr. I was so impressed with her expertise, concern for my personal needs, and caring that I would definitely see her again if Dr Seamen was unavailable.

SHC Patient, Oct 2016

Love Dr. Tran because she'll let us (my husband and I) have our appointments together so we can hear what is being recommended for each other. It's good to have another set of ears at medical appointments.

SHC Patient, Oct 2016

answered all my questions and was thinking about the future to improve my condition.

SHC Patient, Sep 2016

I am very satisfied.

SHC Patient, Aug 2016

SHC Patient, Jul 2016

bad: during examination the doctor recommended a nasal spray, which she forgot to prescribe in the end. no prescription.

SHC Patient, Jul 2016

very happy with the quality level service received

SHC Patient, Jul 2016

Dr Susan Tran is highly competent, friendly, experienced, and puts patients at ease.

Dr. Tran & Nicole are great.

SHC Patient, Jun 2016

Dr. Tran is very thorough and always explains things during a visit. She cares for her patients. I have a lot of issues & she is always on top of things.

SHC Patient, Jun 2016

Dr.Tran was very welcoming, instructive and open to hear about how I felt. I didn't feel embarrassed or out of place. she made me feel confront blue from the start. coming I for the first time made me nervous but now I am not. thank You.

SHC Patient, Jun 2016

We liked Dr. Tran so we followed her here and the people here are great.

SHC Patient, Jun 2016

Very good.

SHC Patient, May 2016

Dr. Tran always is prepared and what I really like is that she ensures she has all information from other doctors/specialist to make appropriate decisions with me.

SHC Patient, Apr 2016

This has been, by far, the best PCP experience I've had. Every staff member is very well-versed in their respective fields, courteous, and forthcoming.
