Outstanding in his field!

Dr. Trang was my surgeon recently in September 2017. I am an operating room nurse. My standards for choosing a surgeon are extremely high. Dr. Trang and his staff exceeded all of my expectations. I had a wonderful outcome. I highly recommend this doctor! LR

Absolutely wonderful

My husband recently had to have colon surgery to remove a cancerous growth. Dr Trang was my husband's surgeon and he was absolutely wonderful. The surgery went so smoothly and because Dr Trang was able to do it laporoscopically, the healing time was insanely reduced. The staff at his office is wonderful as well. Thank you for making a stressful experience a bit less stressful.
