    I would recommend Dr Tran to everyone. He explained things in such detail. Before the call I was anxious and scared. After I felt such relief and more knowledgeable about what's going on with me. I think the unknown is the scariest.
    The visit was a video call over the internet. It was much more efficient than an office visit. The only thing I need to do it obtain a blood test device which I am more than happy to do to continue with the video visit.
    I have been going to *Dr. Tran for over 5 years as my PCP wanted me to see a nephrologist as I have type II diabetes (under control). He has been especially mindful of my health after my _____ with CHF last summer. No known cause, but concerned about diabetics and kidney function since. I must tell you that I do trust *Dr. Tran.
    *Dr. Tran was referred to me by my general MD *Dr. Shannon O'Connor. *Dr. Tran also was in touch with my cardiologist *Dr. Wertman and my oncologist *Dr. Fong.
    I really liked Dr. Tran. He was kind, thorough and answered all of my questions.
