Arrived early. Appointment time went passing by. Other patients arrived a received assistance before me. Upon inquiry at the desk, I was told that the Doctor is very busy. Here is where Limbo begins. At bedside, I complained to the Doctorand expressed my point of view to include bias and discrimination. Doctor assured me that he was not busy and don't know why the statement was made. Doctor went on to explain that it was a Patient's couple with 2 different appointment and decided to attend to both at the same time. Reasonable and acceptable explanation. That decision when made, must be relayed to the Patient with an appointment and waiting. Each Patient schedule is either filled and may also have appointment to get to. Doctor was cordial, Consoling, Attentive and compassionate. Patient BASE information for first time Patient is vital. Blood was drawn. Neither the Doctor nor the Nurse drawing blood asked if I ate before drawing blood. The result was alarming and became very concerning for the doctor. Doctor even asked during dissemination of the bad news "did you eat", I replied "don't recall". At the moment of bad news I did not remember. After carefully reviewing that morning actions, I recalled all that I ate and drank. This therefore, skewed my BASE LINE data. I will return to Dr. Tran. Hopefully, to find a better and amicable approach all around.

Very good visit with Dr. Alex Tran. He listened well and answered my questions fully. Will recommend him to others. My only bad comment is the time spent to get an appointment. If I needed to see the doctor I wouldhave to wait at least one week. By that time I would have to go to the emergency room.

I had a very good, thorough visit with Dr. Tran. I liked how he spent a decent amount of time with me (20 minutes) to assess my health concerns. I also liked how he recommended a follow-up to see how Iimprove over the next few weeks. Even though I've changed insurance several times over the past few years, I always keep coming back to Montes Medical Group because I feel very comfortable and taken care of having Dr. Tran as my Primary Care Physician.

Dr. Tran is excellent! It's certain protocol the office follows that makes it tedious for the patient-for example I needed a return to school note for my child and instead of giving it to me at intake, the front desk wantsyou to stand in line a second time AFTER your appointment just to make it a little harder on you as a mom, running 20 errands in a day! But Dr. Tran is awesome!

I think that Dr.Tran is the best doctor for many reasons. One of the many reasons is that he takes the time to let the patients explain what he or she is feeling. So I belive he is one of thebest doctors I have ever met and I would recommend him to my friends and family.

I came to Dr. Tran with a pain level of 6 to get my pain medication refilled. I had been treated by my long time doctor for a year with abdominal pain caused by adhesions and nerve entrapment following cancer surgery.My health insurance changed, so I was looking for a new doctor who would accept my insurance. Dr. Tran felt I was abusing drugs, and walked out of the room refusing to treat me. The pharmacy said he had incorrectly written my prescription, and my former doctor had written the dosing correctly. Still I was able to get my prescription by requesting my pharmacy to refill it. The next time I went in for a refill, he had marked my file so the Physician Assistants could not treat me. The PA also agreed that my former doctor had written the dosing correctly, but he could no longer prescribe me any medication. I ended up going back to my long time doctor, and paying cash so I could get treated.
