Specialties

Dr. Vu A Tran has the following 2 specialties

  • Sleep Medicine

    A sleep medicine specialist is specially trained in diagnosing and treating disorders involving sleep.
    Sleep disorders such as sleep apnea, restless leg syndrome and insomnia are very common and can often cause other serious health issues, such as depression, asthma, and migraines. Sleep medicine specialists often work in sleep centers where they observe a patient while sleeping and monitor brain waves, behavior, and vital signs in order to identify the causes of sleep disturbance, or an inability to sleep (insomnia).
    Sleep medicine specialists treat patients through advising on sleep hygiene, providing cognitive behavioral therapy, using light therapy, or medical sleep aides.

  • Pulmonary Disease

    A pulmonologist is a physician who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions related to the lungs and respiratory tract.
    These specialists are similar to critical care specialists in that their patients often require mechanical ventilation to assist their breathing.
    Pulmonologists diagnose and treat patients with conditions such as asthma, cystic fibrosis, asbestosis, pulmonary fibrosis, lung cancer, COPD, and emphysema. Exposure and inhalation of certain toxic substances may also warrant the services of a pulmonologist.
    Some of the tools and tests pulmonologists use to diagnose a patient are a stethoscope in order to listen for abnormal breathing sounds, chest X-rays, CT scans, blood tests, bronchoscopy, and polysomnography.

The best lung specialist I've seen.

He is the best combination of very bright & knowledgeable, yet kindly and warm. I've found a great specialist who actually cares! None of the arrogance you find so frequently in specialists. He substitutes intelligent concern. You'll fall in love with his wonderful staff!

Disappointing Visit

I went to see Dr. Tran for a breathing issue I was having and he felt that I might have sleep apnea issues as well. So a time was set up a month later for a sleep study at his office. Which confirmed I did indeed have sleep apnea. Then he set up another sleep study which I understood was for me to obtain the breathing device and learn how to use it. No it was just to try on a bunch of different devices. The order he gave to the medical supplier was confusing and they have been unable to understand from him exactly what I need. Now almost four months later I have no sleep device and a very LARGE bill. I'm losing sleep not because I have sleep apnea but because of my experience!! Find another doctor unless you enjoy nagging this one!

Excellent Doctor; professional, listens and I felt cared. If you read any poor reviews they are unjust. The source should be considered. I am 65 and have seen many good and poor doctors. Dr Tran is a good doctor

Two Stars

After my sleep apnea test, he called me and said he was ordering a sleep apnea machine. He never told me anything about my study, I don't know how many times I had apnea, etc. His office visits were so brief, I didn't have time for questions. When addressing my insomnia he never listened to me, as I also have another underlying condition. I finally went to another doctor and it was night and day.
