Bio

Dr. Tran was born in Saigon, Vietnam but escaped with his family to the United States in 1975 after the fall of South Vietnam. He grew up in Orlando and graduated from Edgewater High School. He attended the University of Florida where he received a degree in Microbiology, and then went on to attend medical school at the Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine in Kirksville, Missouri. Dr. Tran is board certified in Internal Medicine and has been practicing Primary Care in the Ocoee area since 2006.

Today, Dr. Tran is happily married with two wonderful children. He is proud to volunteer at Shepherd's Hope each month, and provide free Primary Care to uninsured people in the area who could otherwise not afford it. To say that Dr. Tran has a few hobbies/interests might be an understatement. When not seeing patients, he enjoys being with his family and participating in activities like: gardening, fishing, playing music, camping, tennis, skiing, MMA training and anything new that he can learn - whether it be fixing things at home, auto mechanics or even astronomy.

“I love meeting new people and trying new things. I try to remain very down to earth and keep my sense of humor alive.”
Dr. Tran’s Philosophy in Medicine:

Patients should work hard to stay healthy and not be dependent on their physician. My job is to help my patients understand how to maintain their health and how to rely less on medication, physicians, and hospitals. I am in healthcare because I want to help people remain healthy and live wonderful lives, I love being able to provide my patients with the tools to do this.

If physicians believe negative thinking and stress can cause disease states such as depression, anxiety, hypertension, strokes and cardiovascular diseases, why do we not believe positive thinking can heal and maintain health?
Dr. Tran’s Philosophy in Life:

It is very important to stay balanced in whatever we do. Personally in my own life, I love being a healer but also love mixed martial arts and weapons training. I believe strongly in physical fitness, but also strongly support mental and spiritual health. My job is to educate patients, but I find that my patients educate me as much as I educate them.
Things My Patients Taught Me:

Money does not change people; it just makes them more of what they are. If they were rude to begin with, money makes them more rude. If they were generous before, money makes them more generous.
