Best Doctor ever!
I have been with Dr. Trans for a while and I have never had a better Doctor in my life. He is caring, pays attention and is very informative in taking care of one's needs. Thank you Dr. Trans you are awesome!!!
I always enjoy my visits with Dr. Tran. I feel very comfortable talking with him. He listens to what I say and I can speak about other subjects other than just my symptoms.
Dr. Tran is great doctor, very helpful and professional in diagnosing and treatment of any health issues you may have. Very helpful and understanding when it comes to dealing with the stressful situation of dealing with a problem. I have been seeing him for years and have no intentions of changing anything.
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 Doctor and 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.
Dr. Alex Tran is amazing, he is caring and really takes the time listen before coming up with a very educated diagnosis. He then gives his best treament options.

Dr.Tran is by far my favorite doctor. He takes time to listen to my concerns..I feel that he really cares.
He is very thorough, I didnt have the feeling that he is in such a hurry to leave the room unlike my previous doctor!
My visit went well. I like Dr.Tran.
Dr Tran is a very good doctor.
Very professional & pleasant. I'm very fortunate be a patient of Dr. Tran!!!
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 would have to wait at least one week. By that time I would have to go to the emergency room.
Been going to him for a little over a year. And not ones have I waited more than 15 mins to go in. He walks in with his laptop witch a lot of drs do now. Prescription are sent right away to your local pharmacy.
Very nice and professional. Makes you feel comfortable. Listen to what you have to say.
Waiting time was a long due to insurance verification. Staff was great. Doctor was excellent.
Dr Tran is one of the best doctors we have had in a long time. He takes the time to find out what is going on.
It is always a pleasure visiting Dr. Tran. He has been my Only Doctor and would not consider changing. He is always a pleasure to see.
Dr. Tran is an excellent doctor he always takes his time to clearly explain things to me and really demonstrates how much he cares for his patients. Anytime Ive been in the hospital he goes out of his way to go see me and check on my recovery. Dr. Tran always offers me the best solutions to my health issues. Thank you Dr. Tran for all you do for your patients!!

Dr Tran Is The best out there
Dr Tran has been our family Dr for 18 years. He is caring, compassionate and attentive to say the least. We all want no other Doctor besides us. Dr Tran is the best
Dr.Tran is very knowledgeable and upto date. Ready to help me in anyway he can and as fast as possible to resolve ANY problem I have. Very thorough as well.
This was my first time visiting this doctors office. All of the staff was very courteous and professional. Dr. Tran was concerned with my overall health and ordered tests right away. I am very pleased with my visit. Thank you.
My visit with Dr. Tran was good! He is always patient and makes sure I understand his explanations and answers to my questions. His nurse is very nice and helpful too. Even though I was a few minutes late (darn traffick & road construction) I waited less than 30 minutes for my appointment :)
It was great. I appreciate the extra attention he gives his patients and even if it's after hours he is still available by phone at any time.
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 I improve 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.
Es en excelente doctor ... Porque se toma el tiempo con el paciente a chequearlo y explicarle al paciente su problema y lo hace sentir a uno en un ambiente muy confortable y deapues de la visita yo como paciente quedo muy satisfecha porque me ha contestado todas mis preguntas y se preocupado por hacerme sentir mejor a mi emfermedad o mi razon de visita.. Gracias dr.Tran....
I feel very secure with Doctor Alex Tran and very pleased with him . I would recommend Dr. Tran to other people.??????
Dr Tran is excellent and he has a great staff. Even his nurse or med assistant has always been help and very professional. I even recommend my brother to him and my brother is very pleased with him and his staff.
He's very accurate with the information in regards to what illness you have. Always a positive experience.
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 wants you 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!
Professional, Efficient, Friendly! A Great Doctor and a Real Credit to his Profession! Quick to answer Questions and very helpful to suggest a Referral for Services he does not provide! Always keeping track of your History in his Bookkeeping, always trying Treat the individual Patient. Great Nurses, Friendly Staff!
I always enjoy my visit with Dr. Tran, because he takes the time to talk to you and go through all your medical information and needs. He is great, not many doctors around like him!
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 the best doctors I have ever met and I would recommend him to my friends and family.
A very professional and friendly Doctor.
Dr tran is an amazing doctor. Attentive and listens to your needs!! He has never made me feel rushed when seeing him. I drive from monrovia to whittier to see him because he is absolutely the best doctor I have been to!!!
he was very condescending and dismissive with my questions. even made a direct comment about it showing that this was my first child I left very frustrated and feeling like I have no place to go with this doctors office to get questions answered or concerns addressed or even sound advice.
Professional and listems
Dr. Tran is an excellent physician. Always listens and is attentive to my needs and concerns. His nurse is great too! Always has a smile and is very kind and professional. Thank you!
He answered all my questions! Very thorough!
The front desk receptionist was very nice. Dr. Tran was very thorough and knowledgeable. I really like that they have their own lab.
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.
Courteous staff, Dr. Tran listened well to my concerns
I have seen a lot of doctors, and some just want to rush you out to see the next patient. Dr. A. Tran spent the time to do a good evaluation, and indicated that he is ready to progress my evaluation and treatment towards a good result. He truly seemed like he wanted to help.
He ignored all my questions. Asked what pharmacy I went to and left the room never to return. Didn't even know he had sent in scripts for me.... Never again....
Just the way seeing a doctor should be!
He was in and out - like all doctors these days. Professional. Provided the information and recommendation I needed.
Extremely satisfied! Dr.Tran was very professional and straight forward. He was very friendly too. A highly recommended pediatrician!
He was great!
He was very thorough and tended to my needs exactly, I was very pleased!
