Qualifications and Experience
Dr. Trandai grew up in Chicago, went to Loyola University, received her medical degree from the University of Illinois in Chicago and completed her training at St. Joseph Hospital where she served as chief resident. She is a board certified OB-GYN. She is married with two children. She delivered one year normal vaginal delivery, and one c-section, which allowed her to experience child birth personally. Due to her personal childbirth experience, her goal is always to optimize her patient's chances for a normal vaginal delivery. It comes as no surprise that she has one of the lowest c-section rates in the country. Her philosophy to gynecologic surgery is conservative, which means she only does them after she has exhausted all non surgical options. She has great bedside manner, and always puts her patients at ease during their dreaded PAP and pelvic exams. Her office is on Broadway, close to the intersection of Bryn-Mawr and Broadway, easily accessible via bus number 36 and the red line train. She is one of the few OB-GYNs who offers Sunday appointment in addition to weekdays, to better serve her patients.

If I knew this was how I was going to be treated I would have just gone to see a male gyno. I went in because I am three months late on my period. She didn’t even ask me to take my pants off she never even touched my body besides telling me the urine test was negative and it’s TOTALLY NORMAL to be 23 never miss periods and all of a sudden no period for three months. I have seen two other doctors who told me to go straight to a gyno because it’s very worrisome that my period is so late and I am testing negative for pregnancy. She was condescending the entire time, told me that I needed to see a psychiatrist because it’s all psychological and the answer is psycho drugs. She told me she can’t help me, even though I explain my libido is down, I experience horrible period cramps EVERY DAY, I have vaginal dryness and irritation as well as having uti symptoms but no uti. But obviously this is ALL psychological. The last time I visited her offices my boyfriend came with and the entire experience was completely different. Maybe what I need is another person in the room to scare her into good practice.
Dr. Trandai is great. I know I'm not alone but going to doctors makes me nervous. Dr. Trandai and her staff put me at ease. They are kind and communicate clearly. Dr. Trandai spends time with me to answer my questions and give me lots of information. Her bedside manner is EXCELLENT--I was bracing myself for my annual pap smear and it was over before I realized what was happening. She is personable and competent and I'm so glad I found her!
This visit was somewhat disappointing. This office is not set up to accommodate heavy people and I felt embarrassed and dismissed a few different times by their lack of preparation. I waited 25 minutes, once roomed, to see Dr. Trandai, and while she was nice, she seemed to be spread quite thin and flustered; she asked me to repeat myself several different times and that didn't make me feel very heard/confident that my needs were being met. She was dismissive about a medical issue that I raised to her as well. I don't think I will go back.
Dr. Trandai was incredibly attentive and respectful of my thoughts and my body. She made me feel at ease by being jovial and funny, but also was obviously well informed about my questions and helped me make choices that were best for my health and well-being.
The waiting room was a little crowded/uncomfortable, and the area in which I was weighed and measured was super informal (next to the front desk practically in the middle of the hallway), but the care was first-rate. I'm not good about having my blood taken, and the nurse was SUPER skilled--I barely felt a thing. I loved Dr. Trandai and will return in the future.
Dr. Trandai was very personable from when she first stepped in the exam room. With a history of OBGYN issues, I was anxious to say the least at trying a new physician. She made me feel comfortable, broached personal conversations that eased my anxiety and understood I needed a bit more time with the exam. I will gladly go back and would recommend her!
Dr Trandai was incredible. 100% present, every concern I had was addressed. Bedside manner is great. She was able to instantly calm my nerves. Happy I found her on ZocDoc. Also, No waiting, appointment right on time. Entire office runs seamlessly; very busy practice that made me feel like I was the only patient of the day. Thank you
Other than not believing in using lube to give Pap smears, she is a good doctor. But I could definitely see that being a deal breaker for those with low pain tolerances. It's almost a deal-breaker for me.
Equate a small child’s terror of the dentist to my feelings for going to the gynecologist. But from the moment she walked through the door to the moment she walked out dr Trandai put me at ease and talked me through everything. Honestly wonderful experience coming from something I’ve been dreading for days.
She's very direct and informative.
Dr. Trandai has been my doctor for the last 11 years. She is my trusted doctor for everything related to my personal well-being.
Great experience! Dr. Trandai is so nice and professional.
Always had great interactions with this doc. She listens and is very friendly
Dr. Trandai was great. She made me feel comfortable and she answered all my questions. Her staff was great as well. Definitely recommend her to anyone.
She was very professional and good at communicating exactly what she was doing and why. Dr. Trandai made me feel very comfortable throughout the experience.
Dr. Trandai is a phenomenal physician! She's friendly, thorough, professional and kind. I strongly recommend her to any woman in need of gynecological support.
She is nice and understanding ,listens and answers
Dr. Michelle Trandai is a professional, down to earth woman. I feel comfortable asking her anything regarding my health. I highly recommend her to anyone seeking a new physician in the area.
I am real nervous at any doctors appointment and was upfront with Dr. Trandai about it. She was so patient and understanding of my needs. I felt safe and comfortable.
Fantastic experience! Will be seeing Dr. Trandai from now on!
Dr. Michelle Trandai is always accessible, professional, sincere, thorough, and kind.
Dr. Trandai is a true professional! She was very friendly and once again she explained the procedure to me. While working she was very gentle, reassuring and quick. She made my IUD insertion a much more pleasant experience than I expected it to be.
Dr. Trandai is lovely! She is knowledgeable, friendly, and has a very comforting bedside manner. I would absolutely recommend her.
Dr Trandai is always so nice. She gets to the point and doesn't beat around the bush. I like that about her. She's awesome!!!!
Dr. Trandai was kind, friendly, and as helpful as can be. Her office environment is fairly no-nonsense, nothing frilly or fancy, but gets the job done. The nurses were very sweet. I did wait about 10 minutes in the lobby and then another 10-15 in the room, so I wouldn't recommend to those who are looking to get in and out quickly, but I liked Dr. Trandai and will be back next year for my check-up!
Zoc Doc appointment with Dr. Trandai: Called at 10:11a to make sure Zoc Doc appointment was confirmed (a while back I showed for ZocDoc appointment and Dr. was out of town). The office confirmed but also asked me to come in early because she sees two 11a appointments from ZocDoc. It was too late for me to come in early. When I arrived the front desk said that she has me down for tomorrow at 11 but that she should be able to fit me in. Saw the doctor at 11:45a. Finished at 12n
She is very comprehensive, and definitely cares about getting all of her and your questions answered. It's not a matter of getting you in and out. I felt like I had a decent amount of time and attention in that office, but I also feel there could have been a bit more done to discuss follow up, and how to monitor an issue we discovered.
Michelle is a great professional, she is one of the rare doctors who have a lot of experience but still keep up with current research. I have been seeing her through my pregnancy so far and she is great at giving advice while providing other options, understanding that one size does not fit all. She is compassionate and open to feedback. Her flexible availability makes it very easy to make appointments without disrupting busy schedules.
Dr. Trandai made a stressful procedure as calm and quick as possible.
Dr Trandai is very friendly and she makes you comfortable
Dr. Trandai is very warm and funny and made me feel immediately at ease. She made my IUD insertion, and very painful and in general not fun procedure, as comfortable as it could possibly be (she also gave me a lot of information beforehand so I could go into it prepared). Everyone who works in her office is very friendly and helpful, too. Can't recommend her enough.
I have been seeing Dr. Trandai for over 4 years now. I have moved and my commute is much further. However Dr. Trandai is worth it. She is the best.
Very professional and has great clinical skills... made my appointment much less anxiety inducing. Highly recommend Dr. Trandai!
quick, easy and very informative!
Dr. Trandai was very friendly and made me feel very comfortable. She answered all my questions and was honest and didn't waste my time. She wrote down step-by-step instructions for the procedure I was asking about. She's great.
Extremely happy with everything. Dr. Trandai is a consummate professional. I would highly recommend this doctor.
Michelle Trandai was is just the type of doctor you hope for; responsive, thorough, caring, and makes you feel at ease. I had an incredible experience with Dr. Trandai, and would highly recommend her!
Took me in early. Very accommodating. Answered all my questions and provided extra options for me. Very comfortable and helpful experience.
Dr. Trandai is very kind, calm, professional, and funny. She knows her stuff and makes you feel cared for. I'd recommend her to anyone seeking gynecological care.
Dr. Trandai was great, but the nurse and front desk worker couldn't speak English much at all. It was hard to understand what they were asking me for and I didn't even bother asking them any questions because I knew they wouldn't understand me.
Let's face it this isn't our favorite visit! But she was awesome a personable and made conversion the whole time and made me feel completely comfortable & stress free! She answered all of my questions and concerns! Definitely will be making her my gyno from here on out! Thanks Doc!
She was super. I left feeling pleased with the entire experience. It had been a very long time since I had seen an OB. She made me feel comfortable and talked me through everything that she was doing and thinking. I recommend her highly.
It was great! She always makes me feel comfortable when I go. I usually wait about 5 to 10 minutes to get seen which is nothing.
Dr. Trandai is the best! Very caring, thoughtful and overall a great doctor!
I went to the office and was handed a plastic cup a regular plastic cup similar to the one you'd find at a picnic and was told to pee in the cup. I thought that that was very janky for a doctor's office. I also went t get blood drawn and was pricked 5 times by 3 different associates and ended up having to set out and seek an appointment at a professional lab since they were all unable to draw blood. The doctor also documented and overcharged me for a service. I ended up wanting to switch physicians after all of this and was refused my records several times even after releasing the information to my new primary physician. The only way that I was able to obtain my records was by calling my insurance company but otherwise this office refused to fax over or release my medical information.
Awesome Dr's office. Everyone greeted you with a hello or a goodmorning. Dr. Trandai was great very nice always smiling. I would recommend her to anyone.
I really value Dr. Michelle Trandai. She is efficient, thorough, professional, attentive, and kind. A great OBGYN =)
I have had bad luck with doctors not hearing me out and I would leave feeling like the issue wasn't resolved. She was quite the opposite. Very polite, patient, and through. I left there feeling like everything was addressed and very happy with the experience.
I loved her! She is fantastic and down to the point. I felt like she actually listened to me!
I was a first time patient and Dr. Trandai made me feel comfortable. She was quick and efficient and I would highly recommend her
Dr. Trandai took the time to get to know me and treated me as a person and not just another patient. She was very easy to talk to and made me feel at ease. I would recommend her to any of my female friends.
Dr. Trandai made me feel very comfortable throughout my visit, and was very helpful when answering questions! I would highly recommend her to any friend!!
Dr. Transmission was very kind and professional. She answered my questions and addressed my concerns.
She explains things well, which I like.
Michelle was incredibly professional yet friendly.
This was the more unorganized Dr. Office I've ever been to. They did not even know I was a new patient (assuming poor communication between coworkers) and I had to ask to fill out paper work. After waiting 45 minutes, I used the restroom where there was a cup of urine on the back of the toilet. Absolutely disgusting. I left without even seeing the doctor because I was so grossed out and frustrated.
Professional, informative, concise meeting.
I love Dr. Trandai. I will continue to see her even when I move farther away in Chicago. She remembers me, she takes the time to ask important questions, and she makes me feel happy and comfortable. I reccommend her all the time.
I was double booked but the receptionist made sure we were both seen without too much of a delay. Appreciate that professionalism! The doctor herself was pleasant, thorough, and knowledgeable.
Great person and Doctor
Great doctor. Nice, polite and knowledgeable. Glad I found her :)
She is terrible! The test result show I have a infection and the front girl said she would give me a prescription. However, she never did it!! As a doctor, she forgot to give patient a prescription!!! I cannot believe that. She also ask me to see other doctor because she said she has no patience!! Most important, I do not think she has good experience at all.
Dr. Trandai is very helpful and handles our concerns very well.
She was great??
Dr. Trandai was competent, thorough, efficient, and attentive. Particularly strong bedside manner. Would unabashedly recommend.
She is the best! I'm generally a pretty nervous person, but she putsaid me at ease, even when speaking about embarrassing matters. So glad I found her!
Dr. Trandai provided excellent care. She took a pap smear and that was a smooth, stress-free experience. She then talked me through several options for birth control and was very attentive to my concerns. I will definitely be seeing her again.
Dr. Trandai was very kind and has a wonderful professional demeanor.
I always enjoy seeing Dr. Trandai. She has such a friendly demeanor and is very thorough. She always spend as much time with me as I need and answers all my questions. I have been seeing her for the last 9 years and I will be with her until she retires!
I got to the office about 15-20 minutes before my 10am appointment time, and to my surprise, they started my appointment early! The front desk and nursing staff speak English as a second language but that was not the case with Michelle--who speaks perfect English--so don't be put off by the reception staff. Her bedside manner was perfect and she went above and beyond to give me the care I needed. I would recommend her for a quick and thorough PAP, exam, etc.
It was a long-ish wait but well worth it. It was my first visit to Dr Trandai and she is both knowledgeable and warm.
Dr. Trandai was super friendly and made me feel comfortable right away. She was very thorough and explained everything well. She seems to really care about her patient's overall health. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a new ob/gyn!
Doctor Trandai was wonderful. Quick but attentive. Made sure i felt comfortable. I was in and out.
Dr Michelle Trandai was the best! She was super understanding and explained everything very well! She was also very knowledgable! I want to keep her! :)
The staff was very professional and inviting. They had my ZocDoc pre-filled out paperwork on hand. Dr. Trandai was warm and had great bedside manner. She answered most of my questions and concerns. Although it seems to go so quickly, she is very thorough and efficient with the exam and explaining every step. She even offered to have my results sent to my GP. So far so good! I will be seeing her again and may update this review if needed.
Dr. Trandai is lovely. Really smart and engaging!
She's very thorough with her exam, but maintains a warm, positive demeanor. Really listens to what the patient wants. She also doesn't shy away from telling you the realities of certain things, which is refreshing.
She was friendly and professional. She also made sure to be thorough when discussing procedures with me.
I was fairly nervous before this appointment - having never been to a gynecologist before, I was expecting 1) scary, mysterious medical procedures and 2) a lecture about how I shouldn't have put it off until I was 26 years old. Instead, what I got was a doctor who took the time to explain everything she was doing and why she was doing it, and who was incredibly nice about the whole thing, including the slightly unsavory experience that prompted me to make the appointment. I highly recommend Dr. Trandai.
Dr. Trandai is a lovely woman and doctor! She is a genuine person who cares about you and is highly educated doctor. Being a daughter of a doctor, it took me many years to find a good ob/gyn when I moved to Chicago. We moved away for a couple years and now we are back. We live a little west of her office now, but it is well worth the trip! I was so happy to see her today and she was equally thrilled to see me. I highly recommend Dr. Trandai!!! I am so thankful and blessed she is my doctor.
She's great! Very kind!
It was great.
Will not do IUD insertion if you haven't had children
This was my first time seeing Dr. Trandai and I really liked her a lot. She was so friendly and knowledgeable and made me feel super comfortable during the entire visit. I also loved that she didn't make me feel rushed at all. Not one bit. So many doctors seem to be in such a rush and it's so terrible to feel as though you are being a bit hurried through your exam, but Dr. Trandai made me feel like I could ask as many questions as I needed to (which I did!) and she didn't rush me at all. And I only waited about 15 min to get in to see her which was great. I highly recommend her.
Great visit, very impressed with Dr. Trandai and will not hesitate to rely on her for any further needs.
Her logic frustrated me. She told me it was good I didn't smoke because I am so pretty and shouldn't get rid of that by smoking. She also questioned be heavily about my weight and diet because of my BMI, which current research suggests is not a reliable indicator of health. She also seemed concerned that my blood pressure was a little high, without taking into consideration that I was seeing her for the first time and she was going to giving me a pap, which are always painful for me, and that the person who checked my blood pressure did it in a weird back room area, not the room I was seen in.
Dr. Trandai is always professional, kind, and courteous.
She is incredibly welcoming, informative, and comforting. She sets aside the time to make you feel informed and educated about the reproductive process. She is genuine and extremely thorough. She is a fantastic doctor.
She was great! I just moved to Chicago and I had to find a doctor and I visited ZocDoc read her reviews and profile and was impressed! Super nice, professional and most importantly sincere. She will for sure be my doctor I visit going forward :)
Dr. Trandai was great-- she was very nice and explained everything thoroughly. She took the time to go the extra mile with me, which I really appreciated. I will definitely be going back to her office!
Dr. Michelle is very nice and very respectful. She listens to you and takes her time with you. She doesn't rush you out like some doctor visits I've had in my past. I highly recommend her.
Great experience. Highly recommended.
I loved Dr. Trandai so much! She was so knowledgeable and helpful and was extremely through.
Very clean office. Dr. Trandai was kind and concerned and listened to everything I said. She was very professional about a sensitive topic. I'll definitely see her again.
Great experience! Knowledgeable, helpful, and easy to talk to!
I made an appointment for an Annual Physical and a Pap Smear. I arrived 20 minutes early for my appointment, but had to wait an additional 20 minutes past my time due to Dr. Trandai being at the hospital for an emergency. The waiting room was a bit uncomfortable because I could hear the nurse taking the vitals of other folks on the other side of the door. Additionally, the other patients could be loud at times, but that's not the office's fault. Just as promised, the nurse ushered me in at the 20-minute delay mark, took my vitals and other health information, and brought me to a patient room where I was to change out of my clothing to the gown. One-on-one, the nurse was a bit abrupt, but that's likely due to a language barrier. She was friendly enough though, and expressed concern on my behalf, which was touching, if unnecessary. I might have waited about 5 minutes before Dr. Trandai came in. She was very friendly and had excellent bedside manners. She attended to my needs and listened well to my concerns. She was also very quick to address things like my heavy cramping and headaches. I will say that she can talk a little too fast sometimes and I wish I wrote down the names of the medications she talked about. I liked Dr. Trandai's gentleness, straight-forwardness, and how she showed me what she was doing on her computer. By the end of it, she knocked out the physical, pap smear, breast exam, three prescriptions (2 sent electronically to my choice of pharmacy), making a followup appointment, anticipating concerns, and answered my questions in approximately half an hour-- she was very efficient but personable. The downside is that this could leave little time for processing information about my health. I had to repeat things aloud to make sure I would remember everything she was telling me. The next time I come--and there will definitely be a next time!--I'll be sure to have pen/paper and pre-written questions with large blank areas for answers. Overall, I would knock off a star for the uncomfortable waiting room, but I will be coming back for Dr. Trandai's personality. I am satisfied with her friendliness, efficiency, and thoughtful/kind persona.
Excellent OB/GYN, it was a very comfortable appointment.
First of all I had a little bit of a hard time finding the place because the outside sign says "dental/medical" which threw me off a bit when driving by. Once I arrived the receptionist, who was very friendly, seemed extremely busy with the phone ringing off of the hook. I had to wait 20 minutes before I was even checked in and given any forms to fill out. Then I wasn't called back to be seen until 40 minutes after my appointment time. When I was called back the receptionist was the one taking my vitals and again she was flustered and still busy answering the phone during this time. Once I was in the room Dr. Trandai came in to see me quickly and was very nice with good bedside manner. I needed some blood work taken and I was surprised to see the receptionist come into my room and be the one to also take my blood. I'm not sure if they were just extremely understaffed on this day or if this is the norm for this office but I would highly recommend for them to fix this as it looks unprofessional and made me feel uncomfortable.
She was down to earth and was able to answer all of my questions. The visit was very efficient. I was seen exactly at my appointment time.
Professional. Lots of direct & pertinent questions. Made me feel at ease immediately. Quick follow up with results.
I enjoyed her input.
Although there was a little bit of a wait, it was well worth it! I moved to Chicago over a year ago and have seen 3 different OB-GYNs. She by far made me feel the most comfortable and relaxed with all my questions and concerns. Since I live in the city, it is a commute to get out there, but definitely worth the time.
I saw her for entire nine months of my pregnancy. Loved her. She gave us a lot of time and answered all our questions in all our meetings. Initially I was scared, that she may not be available during my labor and delivery but she was there. I also heard from nurses in the hospital that she has never missed delivery of her patients. This speaks volumes about her commitment and dedication towards her profession and her patients. She visited me several times in the hospital to make sure I was doing well. Highly recommend her!
Although this was my first visit with Dr.Trandai she made it feel as if I'd been going there for years! So welcoming & thorough, I've definitely found my new Gyno!
She was really rude, and called me fat a few times. Then went on to say that I probably never exercised, even though I do. When I described to her my exercise routine, she made a face like she didn't believe me. She asked me if she really needed to do an STD test, and made me feel a little shameful because of it. Just an all around bad experience; I even cried when I left. Will not go back.
I was so impressed with Dr. Trandai! She is very thorough and caring, but she keeps her appointments efficient.
Super kind. Definitely listened to be about being nervous and having hesitations about certain exam aspects. It was pretty tefreshkng to talk to a doctor who I can really tell is listening while I talk.
Dr. Trandai was very professional and funny. She made my boyfriend and I feel completely at ease as new soon-to-be parents. She was very clear, quick, and thorough with her examinations and expectations. I would highly recommend Dr. Trandai!
She was very personable. Great experience!
Very pleasant visit. I was seen right away. Everything was explained in detail and in a very positive attitude. Very likable doctor!
She listened and was very patient
The visit with Dr. Trandai herself was great. Her staff not so much. They made me very uncomfortable.
Dr Trandai is professional yet very amicable and approachable. She is always positive and thorough in her explanations.
She was exceptional! So thrilled that she will be with me through out this pregnancy! The reviews don't lie, she's amazing! i was a little put off by where the office was but she is worth it!
I have a history with eating disorders and make sure to tell all doctors and specialists not to show me my number weight or mention it unless it is 100% medically necessary, as it is extremely triggering to me and leads to unsafe thoughts and behaviors. Dr. Trandai ignored this and shoved her chart in my face, demanding I explain why my BMI was higher than it was the last time I saw her, 2 years earlier when I was actively starving myself. I am by no means overweight now and am actually much healthier than I was the first time I saw her 2 years ago, but this is irrelevant as I came in for a procedure that is completely unrelated to weight, and BMI has continually proven to be completely irrelevant in regards to health. This was extremely insensitive and triggering in what should be a supportive environment and makes me fear for other female-identified individuals who also struggle with eating disorders and are faced with such judgment and unprofessionalism. Dr. Trandai needs some serious training in this area; eating disorders have the highest mortality rate of any mental disorder and she is causing incalculable harm. Avoid avoid avoid!!!
We have been seeing her since last 8 months. She delivered our baby yesterday and it was amazing how she was able to deliver the baby in less than 30 minutes. She is very nice to talk to and behaves more like a friend rather than a doctor. I would recommend her to all our everyone.
Best DR ever!
She is very friendly and good in diagnosing ...
Without getting into specifics, I told the nurse that certain tests didn't need to happen and she still did them. I did the most interacting with Dr Trandai. I loved talking with her. She's very friendly, I felt very comfortable with her and she wasn't judgmental. I will for sure be going back
Great! Dr. Trandai answered all of my questions thoroughly and walked me through everything in detail (upon my request!).
Her front office staff really has a breakdown when it comes to communication. I was using medical, scientific terminology to describe my condition and the nurse or assistant looked very confused, and in the end, did not even know how to spell "lesion" which is a very common word for a medical professional. The wait time could be a lot better. I was waiting for about forty five minutes. When it comes to bedside manner, Dr. Trandai was professional and friendly but seemed a bit frazzled. However, she took the extra time to triple check everything and point out what was and was not normal, which was very appreciated.
She was very personable and kind. Made me feel very comfortable.
The meeting with the doctor was quick, easy and straightforward. She is super nice and helpful.
Very personable and really nice. I'll definitely be setting up any future appointments with her.
I enjoyed my visit with Dr. Trandai. She is very nice and friendly. She explained everything thoroughly. The staff was very nice too! Love them!
Dr. Michelle Trandai made the appointment go seamlessly. She made me feel very comfortable and at ease.
She is a very friendly person and makes us feel comfortable.
She was very informative, and made me feel very comfortable, she will be my primary Ob-gyn
She is knowledgeable, listens well, and makes you feel very comfortable. She put me at ease, and answered all of my questions.
Dr. Trandai was great. The office is very clean and tidy. Her staff are very friendly. She came right in and asked me a bunch of questions since i was a new patient but also had time to chat with me about my concerns. I went in for a yearly check up and she helped me figure out what birth control i should be on. She is a keeper. She was 30 min late but apologized which I appreciated.
Dr Trandai is wonderful. Glad I found her!
She is very thorough and makes me feel at ease. She took my concerns seriously. A great doc!
I have seen dr Trandai with all 4 of my pregnancy. She delivered all 4 babies and I am very satisfied with her, that is why I keep going back. I trust her and she really nice. I would recommend her to anyone.
I did have to wait over 30 minutes this time but that didn't happen the previous time. I'd suggest getting an early appointment to avoid that issue (although, my appt was at 11am, so not even that late). Overall, I've liked seeing Dr. Trandai but I didn't have the best experience when I asked for information about birth control. Since it was my first time going on it, and I was hoping for more of a consultation about what would be best for me, I was a little disappointed. She wrote me 2 prescriptions (for 2 diff types of birth control) and told me to decide. I did some research on my own but was basically scared about taking either after reading the reviews. I'm planning on going to see a midwife who my friend recommended- she said the woman spent an hour talking to her, so I'm hoping for a better experience. Again, Dr. Trandai has been great for my yearly pap, has excellent bedside manner, makes you feel comfortable and is very courteous.. I just think I caught her on a bad day.
Dr. Trandai is such a professional! I am from California and have been searching for an OB-GYN who I feel at ease with. She made me feel incredibly comfortable and answered all my questions. I would recommend her to anyone and I am glad I happened to find her on this site! Her staff is wonderful and kind too, they greeted me right away and put me in my patient room within ten minutes after I arrived. I highly recommend!
I had an appointment this morning for my annual exam before work. I was in and out with in less than 40 minutes after my appointment time! It was my first time seeing Dr. Trandai and she was wonderful. Extremely nice, explained everything she brought up, and made the exam as comfortable as an annual exam can be! The front desk was also extremely polite and helpful and got all of my preliminary vitals and what not out of the way within ten minutes of being there.
Very friendly, the whole staff was nice. Highly recommended!
Dr Trandai was great on my first visit with her. She was courteous and explained what she was doing as she was doing it which made me feel at ease. She even gave me an insider tip on how to deal with my specific insurance to get my visit covered completely! Could use a little tutorial on how to use the computer (my prescription didn't go thru twice before it did the first time), but other than that she was great! Her front desk/nursing staff however could use a little improvement. They woman taking my vitals and asking me preliminary questions spoke so softly I couldn't understand what she was saying so I could only hope I was answering correctly.
I'm so glad to have found Dr. Trandai! I'm usually nervous seeing any doctor and she makes it so calm and easy to be there. I won't go anywhere else and I'll be recommending her to any of my friends.
I have just started seeing Dr. Trandai - been a few times in the past few months - so far I have had a very good experience with her and her staff. She is warm and doesn't mess around - tells it like it is. I appreciate that. Her practice is of great value to the local Vietnamese community and for that reason some may feel like it is a slightly foreign experience. That being said - it feels family oriented and comfortable when compared to some of the bigger (almost corporate) OB GYN practices.
Dr. Michelle Trandai was very nice and welcoming to me as a first time patient after meeting her my nerves calmed down.She is easy to talk to and addresses all your concerns and listens to you about what you may be experiencing.She is very thorough and I will be booking another appointment to see her.
Very professional and personal. All a person could ask for in a doctor
Knowledgeable and easy to talk to. I would recommend Dr Trandai.
She's Awesome! I definitely recommend her =)
Dr. Trandai was amazing to work with. The staff was friendly but not very helpful. The nurse I worked with seemed unsure if I could get my annual appointment. I asked if they wanted my files from my previous doctor and she said no. It was strange. However, after meeting with Dr. Trandai, I felt much more comfortable being there. I would plan an hour for the appointment, as the wait time is rather long.
She was extremely informative without being condescending or incredulous, as I have experienced other OBGYNs to be. As I am a young sexually active woman (though I have only had one partner, whom I am still with after many years), I am usually greeted with several underhanded remarks regarding my age and my sexuality, as well as an inability to get information regarding alternate forms of birth control or other questions I may have. Dr. Trandai was open, honest, intelligent, humorous (especially in such an uncomfortable situation as during the PAP), and, most importantly to me, not judgmental in the slightest. She treated my questions and me with dignity and respect. For the first time in my life, I look forward to my next PAP test.
Dr. Trandai was great! Very friendly and professional. She explained everything that she was doing and provided detailed information. Highly recommended!
The doc is great. She walks you through what she is doing and why. She is also very attentive to your overall health. Highly recommend her!
She is great! Kind, takes time, efficient, nice smile and good sense of humor. Great bedside manner.
Dr. Michelle Trandai is wonderful! She is compassionate and professional. She puts me at ease! I am so pleased to have her as my doctor. The entire staff is excellent! Thank you. Kathleen
I hate going to the doctor's office but she makes you feel extremely comfortable!
I was pleased with my visit. After reading several reviews, I had a good idea of what to expect regarding Dr. Trandai's staff and the wait time. Most of the feed back was accurate. The assistant who took my weight, blood pressure, etc. was difficult to understand and I was seen 20 minutes after my appointment time (I arrived 15 minutes before my scheduled time). That said, I liked Dr.Trandai very much. She was efficient (perhaps to the point of seeming hurried). After the exam, she sat with me and had a very frank discussion about birth control options and what would be best for me.
This is my second time seeing Dr Michelle and I definitely recommend her, she is just awesome! I have a hard time finding decent doctors in this country, but she is definitely one of the rare kinds. She will give you time to ask questions, explain everything and give you options about what you are trying to solve. Don't think twice, this is the doctor you want on your side, girls!!!
Do not come here for an IUD. When I made this appointment on ZocDoc, I made sure to select the correct procedure and details surrounding it (I went in for an IUD and listed the brand I wanted). I received an email confirmation from ZocDoc (great!) and a phone confirmation from the office for my appointment (also great). They even confirmed the fact that I wanted an IUD. Note that I went through many points of research and several years on various BCs to conclude that I wanted this. This was not a light decision. I go through all the motions of a new patient visit: paperwork, pregnancy test, vitals, etc. The nurses' English were pretty poor, but we managed. When Dr. Trandai saw me and heard what I wanted, she immediately told me that she has a policy for never putting an IUD into a woman who has never been pregnant. Oh, and she didn't carry the brand I had listed on the appointment request. THEN, she uses scare tactics on me, telling me that the reason is because she has had two never-pregnant women pass out on her table, and one sent to the ER, because of "excruciating pain." This is an outdated notion and maybe have worked on previous patients who didn't do enough research on the IUD. Eventually, she did say that she would perform the IUD if I REALLY wanted it, but at that time, I was so turned off by her attitude, that I in no way wanted this woman to perform this procedure. This was a waste of time & money. I eventually went to Planned Parenthood and got the brand I wanted. They've never had someone pass out on their table. TIP TO THE OFFICE: screen your patients and their requests. You should've asked the necessary questions BEFORE confirming the appointment.
Dr Trandai is friendly, honest, and extremely professional. She conducts her examinations efficiently and thoroughly and also provides general health advice, making it a very pleasurable visit!
She was amazing! Not only is she knowledgeable, she is and her staff are extremely friendly! She answered all my questions and I didn't feel rushed. The best part is that her offices are not located in an icky hospital. If you are pregnant don't go to other OBGYNs.... Dr. Trandai is superb!
The office staff was confused, unprofessional, and barely spoke English (though it is listed as the primary language for the office). It was very difficult to understand them as well as for them to understand me. Dr. Trandai was very nice during the appointment and made me feel comfortable. But I was going for a follow up appt from a previous issue from a Physicians Assistant, and I was not called or informed of my tests results in the time she had told me. I called 10 days after my appointment and the office staff was again confused, didn't know who I was, or why I would be calling the office. Dr. Trandai followed up with me a few days later and was very casual about it, but not very helpful or informative. Now I am trying to switch to a new OB/GYN to find a better fit in a location closer to where I live and AGAIN the office staff has no professionalism over the phone, are always confused, can't understand anything I am saying. I called to have my records sent to me, as I was still researching a new doctor. I was told "No problem, we can email them to you." She even verified my email address over the phone. Three days later and I still have not received records. I called to get them now faxed to a new doctor I found, and the office staff has no idea who I am, can't understand why I would be calling for records, tells me that they can't send me OR my new doctor records without a consent form signed from that new doctor office, and that they have no idea who talked to me 3 days ago and told me they could email my records to me. I understand about the language barrier and wish I was more forewarned about the demographic of the clinic before I booked this appointment. I would not have chosen a physicians office who can't understand the language I speak if I would've known. Very unprofessional.
Dr. Trandai makes you feel completely comfortable and always takes ample time to meet with you during your visit to address any questions you might have. I highly recommend her.
She was very kind, and very informative. If you want to be heard, go to Dr. Trandai. During my check up, she located a lump on my right breast and referred me to specialist. She goes above and beyond what is required of a doctor.
Dr Trandai was very nice with a nice manor. I would definitely recommend her. However I had to wait for over an hour to get seen during the middle of my work day. I sat in a room by myself for half an hour waiting. The reception staff were not friendly and did not communicate with you.
I thought she was great. It was my first time getting a pap smear and she explained everything she would be doing, was thorough but quick. I would definitely recommend her to anyone!
Doctor was on time with the appointment, explained things clearly.
I always love coming to see Dr. Trandai, she is very helpful, friendly, and the staff is extremely punctual.
Dr. Trandai was great. She made me feel very comfortable ad took her time to get to know me and make sure all my questions and concerns were addressed. She also explained exactly what she was doing and how things looked during the exam so I didn't have to wonder if everything was normal. I highly recommend her!
Dr. Michelle Trandai was absolutely amazing. She was quick and efficient. I was able to get a appointment at the last minute which was amazing.
Very compassionate and professional. Described in detail each procedure so you knew. Very generous with her time and made sure we knew to call her with questions or concerns.
Very nice lady. Gave me treatment right away and was very gentle and polite during check-up. Didn't call back with results like promised though and didn't follow up.
She is very efficient and clearly was concerned about my entire well being. Even my general practionner doesn't always look at me this holistically. Would recommend to anyone and everyone !
I've been going to Dr. Trandai for 7 or 8 years now. She's great!
Excellent service! I highly recommend this doctor!
I just love Dr. Trandai!!!
Dr. Trandai is absolutely amazing. Her office is horrific. On my first appt, I waited in the lobby for over an hour and was taken back once..then weighed, asked invasive questions etc in the middle of the office. During all this, a bunch of nurses were moving in and out, and I had to stand in the middle of everything. Then iwas sent back into the waiting room for another 30 minutes. I almost walked out. Luckily, when I got in the room with Dr. Trandai, she made me glad I stayed. Her bedside manner is amazing. She stayed in the room with me, was incredibly thorough and reassuring. She answered all my questions and never made me feel rushed. While she makes the waiting room experience worth it, I do wish that such an excellent doctor wasn't marred by such a bad waiting room experience.
Great personality, puts you at ease. Wait time was too long though.
Best Doctor hands down she saved my life and got me very healthy! Thank you Doctor michelle you are the best doctor ever!
The receptionist was very hard to understand.
I love love love Dr. Trandai. I have recommended her to all of my friends and family. Couldn't ask for a better physician.
She's very direct and doesn't like wasting neither your or her time. Sometimes that's a good thing, otherwise not. If you're looking for a general gyno to take your pap spears at, and get your prescriptions from, I'd recommend this place. If you have reoccurring infections or other complications, go elsewhere.
I've been looking for a right doctor for a long time and I found it!!! Dr. Trandai is very professional and attentive. She is a knowledgeable expert. and just a nice and sweet person. I am pleased to be back for the next appointment with this doctor. So happy that I found her. Thank ZocDoc!
I was recommended to Dr. Trandai by my primary care physician when I found out I was pregnant. I didn't know much about her at the time but had been told by my doctor that she had a very good reputation and a low C-Section rate (which is a concern of mine because I really do not want a C-Section if at all possible). Anyways, I went to my first appointment with her when I was about 5 weeks pregnant. Her nurses were very kind and informative when I asked them questions and when they took blood it didn't even hurt (and I have a low pain tolerance so a good blood draw seriously makes my day). From our very first visit Dr Trandai was extremely professional and friendly, she made it a point to make both me and my husband feel comfortable and informed on what the next 35 weeks would look like. This being my first baby I knew absolutely nothing about the process but left that day feeling informed and educated on what was going to happen throughout the course of the pregnancy. I would also like to note that I have not had the easiest pregnancy. In my first trimester I was diagnosed with extreme morning sickness in which I could not keep ANYTHING down. There was one time in my 6th week of pregnancy where I literally felt like I was going to die. I called Dr. Trandai and she got me in to see her within an hour. She was able to give me a prescription to help ease my nausea and it made a world of difference. Then later in my 12th week of pregnancy I had to go to the emergency room because I was extremely dehydrated, Dr. Trandai actually took the time to call the emergency room and check in on how I was doing. I couldn't believe how caring she was to call and check in on me. This is a very rare quality to find in a doctor. Then again at 13 weeks I had some minor bleeding and Dr. Trandai opened her office a little early to get me in and see me before the first patient of the day. She performed an ultrasound and some other things to make sure the baby was okay. Then she again took the time to call over the weekend to check in and make sure I was okay. Dr. Trandai is an extremely caring and compassionate doctor, she is willing to go out of her way for the patient's best interest. I think that she has gone above and beyond to make sure that our experience is the best that it can be. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a good doctor. Good doctors are very hard to come by now-a-days and she gets 5 stars in my book.
I felt Dr. Trandai was great once we were in the room. She was very kind and professional. I did not like the waiting area and felt like the building was run down and dusty. Not a fan.
Excellent doctor. Takes time to talk to you and answers all your questions. I highly recommend her.
Dr. Trandai saw me right away and was very friendly. She addressed my questions, and anything she could not answer, she followed up with.
Dr. Trandai was very professional and a great conversation. I really am still not comfortable receiving my preventative care (i.e pap smears), but Dr. Trandai made the atmosphere very relaxed, plus she has a great sense of humor!!
She is great and treats you like her only patient.
My visit was okay not the best as i was expecting based on the reviews. I waited for 30 min then the Doc came and she spent with me about 5min. It was too quick. I thought she would know better about my issue but she didnt.
Everything wa great. She was very prefessional and polite.
No concern at all from Dr.Trendai, she treats very well and listens/informs correctly. sometimes only there will be waiting if there are more ppl, other than that there are no issues.
Dr. Trandai is very friendly and will patiently answer any questions.
It was great. She and her staff are very professional and efficient.
Wait time is bad, all other things are fine. Doctor is very good , friendly, tries to know all issue details. Good doctor
Dr. Trandai was very friendly. The visit was short, but she made sure I had a chance to ask questions and address concerns.
It's extremely frustrating. The wait is way too long with no time to actually talk to the doctor, staff/nurses are incompetent, they don't seem to understand English at all, and when they draw blood, they ignored rules of basic hygiene (used the same tissue 3 times).
I get pretty tense during doctor visits, especially the ob gyn but she made me feel extremely comfortable!
Excellent doctor. I think the wait time could be a little shorter. I waited about 30 minutes
I've been going to her for years and with the birth of all my children. I wouldn't be going to anyone else. Highly recommended!
Professional, warm, concerned...made me feel comfortable immediately. I am delighted to have found her as MY Doctor! Thank you!
MD Trandai made me feel at home. She is very competent.
I would go back to Dr. Trandai. I thought she was very personable and friendly. She was confident and made me feel comfortable. She also uncovered other health concerns I had that didn’t really relate to her field of expertise. Through asking deeper questions she uncovered my concern of Hypothyroidism and she ordered blood work to be done. She also recommended a primary care physician (which I didn’t have) to follow up with me in regards to my blood work. The office staff was prompt and courteous. I left feeling confident and satisfied in the service and professionalism of the staff.
Very helpful .
Dr. Trandai is by far one of the best doctors I've gone to. She's extremely friendly and helpful. She takes her time with each patient to ensure that you are given the best service Dr. Trandai really has the best intentions for her patience. For instance, I was really interested in getting a certain procedure and she did not recommend it. She told me it would be too painful and she did not want me to go through that so I decided not to. Any other doctor who didn't care about her patience what have just schedule the procedure and she didn't. I'm so happy that I stumbled upon her office a year ago.
Doctor is good nd gentle however waiting time is terrible be ready to wait for 2 hours at d clinic !!!
Absolutely wonderful doctor. Got right to the point and explained all my concerns. Cares about her patients, even though they are new. Wonderful office hours! She is definitely my permanent OBGYN from now on!
1. Office has no website, no online appointments 2. Cannot communicate via email 3. When I call the office, the phone is answered by someone who barely speaks English. 4. I called the office to try to transfer medical records, but I was hung up on at 5pm. 5. The office voicemail is full. Really awful phone answering / customer service.
Super friendly and patient. I am usually pretty nervous when I go have these kinds of exams, but she made it quick and painless.
She was absolutely wonderful, so nice, so helpful! I'll definitely be back for all my future doctor needs!
Dr. Trandai is always great! Compassionate, quick and good at the not so fun stuff, easy to talk to, etc.
Dr. Trandai was very professional and had a great bedside manner. I would definitely recommend her.
Dr. Trandai was very professional and friendly, and I felt well cared-for.
Wonderful doctor- very concerned and sensitive. Leaves you with peace of mind and is not pushy.
She was great & answered all my questions that I needed to know.
She was great at taking all of my information in and helping me figure things out. I did like that even though my appointment was only scheduled for one thing I was able to have many things done. She is a great doctor - I'm going back soon :)
She was very friendly when discussing all my concerns. She recommended things to me without being rude about it while sometimes people could be. Just all around a considerate person. I really liked her. She took a few moments to even get to know me outside of just the visit.
Will be returning. Competent, professional and good bedside manner. I liked her direct communication style.
She was very nice, understandable, answered what I needed to know & helpful. I would definitely recommended her.
This is the first time I went to a doctor's clinic and it was awesome! Doc Michelle and her staff was very helpful and pleasing. Doc Michelle is very informative, cautious ( because of my medical history) and very assuring.
Dr. Trandai was fine, but I knew what kind of birth control I wanted based on my own past experiences and she made it clear she wasn't going to be the doctor to provide that for me so I found another doctor. I had a terrible experience with one of the nurses in this office prior to seeing Dr. Trandai though. I was on a low-dose birth control pill that is designed to stop you getting your period and this nurse just would not believe I wasn't pregnant when I said I hadn't had my period in about 6 months due to this pill. She kept fighting with me and trying to give me a pregnancy test. I was, very obviously, not six months pregnant. On top of the hassle, she kept giving me disapproving looks when I also had to answer that no, I'm not married. So maybe this isn't the place for someone who needs birth control but isn't married--absolutely not worth the shaming I got.
Michelle was very friendly, made me feel comfortable, and addressed all my concerns.
I was a little wary when I went into the office. Very outdated and there were a lot of people in the waiting room. However, Dr Trandai was very professional and courteous. Wait time was short which I appreciated.
Great doctor, great bedside manner, kind, professional, everything I want in an OB-GYN.
Overall the doctor and staff were great. She really listened to my concerns and explained each part of any process she was doing. I really appreciate her breaking down information for me. Amazing and engaging doctor! The wait was long but next time I'll pick a less busy day for the office.
I'm new to the area and trying to establish a new group of doctors. When it came time for my yearly pap, I booked an appt with Dr Trandai based on the great reviews everyone else left. Definitely was not disappointed! She was very thorough, helpful, and super friendly. Looks like I found myself a new gyno!
I thought she was very professional and knowledgable.
I showed up 10m late because the red line was wonky and was still seen pretty quickly.
Great first visit. Dr. Trandai has a great bedside manner and I think she will be very helpful with fertility issues.
She takes her time with you and is very nice, gives good information.
Dr. Michelle Trandai was very kind and patient. I would highly recommend her.
She is great and very good at her job. She helped me deliver in the best possible way. She is very caring too.
Dr. Trandai was professional, friendly, and thorough but stayed on time. I enjoyed meeting her and will return.
She is very patient and very caring. I enjoy seeing her and if I plan on future pregnancies she will continue to be my ob/gyn.
She is a great doctor who gave helped us give birth to our little girl
She was very nice and she listened to all that I said. The wait time was very short.
Making an appointment is easy. Great doctor, great staff. Dr. Trandai is very knowledeable and friendly. I wish I could see her for all my medical needs.
Dr. Trandai and her staff are wonderful. It' a very friendly atmosphere and everyone goes out of their way to make you feel comfortable. Dr. Trandai makes sure to take the time you need when answering questions. I highly recommend her.
She was quick and straight to the point, without judgement.
