Ratings for Dr. Hung Tran
I informed Dr Tran that my reason for the visit was simply medicinal. I had a therapist and just needed the medications I had been taking for over 15 years adjusted. He spent 5 minutes discussing the medications and the rest of the hour pointing to posters and hand outs about attitude. When I lost my job I made a call to be sure that he would send a refill to the pharmacy before my benefits ran out. He wouldn't refill until he saw me, but he couldn't see me until after my benefits had shut down. I received a call the day before they were cut off stating that he had an appointment the next morning. I agreed. 20 minutes later they called back to say my insurance was denied. I told them I would just like to cancel the appointment then because I couldn't afford the office fee. They charged me with a cancellation fee because it was under 24 hour notice. I disputed this charge for a full week and was told not to worry about it, so I did. No invoices, phone calls, or otherwise were sent to me, so I assumed they just reversed the charge. I am how holding a notice from a collection agency for over $400. I am NOT paying this and will take this to court if it comes to that.
Dr. Tran has been seeing me for ten years. He has helped my complex issues both with medication and therapy. Before dr. Tran I was in as nd out of mental hospitals. Since seeing him I have not been hospitalized. He has closely monitored my meds and mental health.
Dr Tran is the first psychiatrist who I've dealt with in over 22 years that didn't just push pills and get me out the door. He listens to my problems, and provides guidance on how to help myself get better. If you're not willing to take responsibility on your mental health and work on your issues, you are missing out on one of Dr Tran's strengths. His support staff is top-rate as well; I even receive txt reminders for my appointments, and I am always greeted with a warm smile.
Dr. Tran is the best psychiatrist I have ever had. I have seen many over the years. I was extremely impressed with many aspects of his practice. The typical shrink I come across spends 20-30 minutes with me & writes me an Rx & really invests no time in actual talk therapy. Dr. Tran provides therapy with the Rx. As it should be. He is very intelligent and compassionate. He has an obvious & genuine interest in helping his patients. You can tell he is passionate about his work. Refreshing!
He tried to dig too deeply into my past. I resisted- he is not a therapist and that made me uncomfortable. He prescribed an rx that I told him I'd taken before and had no benefits from. He insisted that the dosage wasn't high enough even though I said I'd tried that & it just increased insomnia. He said that sleeping pills would just x that out. I'm familiar enough with sedatives to know that taking them for an extended period is not a good idea and can actually worsen depressive symptoms. He would not consider an off-label rx despite my history of rx's not working. Finally he had me READ ALOUD some quote about changing your attitude. He asked what I wanted most in my life @ that moment & I said to move because I hate it here. He insisted that it was my really my "hate" that was making me unhappy. When someone is feeling suicidal, telling them they're flawed in their thinking is not a wise 1st step. CBT has its place and its not in his office. Very, very disappointed.
