Dr. Michelle Trandai, MD

OB-GYN

Professional statement

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.

My first appointment with Dr. Trandai was great. I left my previous GYN due to negligence, and she seemed very sensitive to same hang-ups I may have from that. She was very open about explaining each part of the exam andwhen I can expect test results. When I mentioned that I was thinking of switching from oral contraceptives to an IUD, she took considerable time to talk me through what the procedure would look like and even gave me the proper codes to confirm coverage with my insurance ahead of time. I will definitely continue using her as my women's health provider.

Dr Trandai was patient, efficient, clear and communicative, gentle, and straightforward. I came to her with a specific and sensitive issue and was treated with sensitivity and respect from the minute she walked in the door. She told me whatshe was doing and why every step of the way, and took time afterwards to explain everything and make sure my questions were answered.

Dr Trandai has been my doctor for years and I couldn’t recommend her enough. She is patient, quick and very informative. She is competent and makes you feel safe during an, otherwise, very vulnerable moment for many women. Doctors like herare hard to find, and when you find one of those you better not let them go!

I really liked the doctor, but my experience in the waiting room was rather odd. When you walk in, it's hard not to notice that reading materials and paperwork are in Vietnamese. I was asking to use the restroom and thenurse didn't speak English. I was going in for a pap smear and she was trying to give me a cup for a pregnancy test on my way into the bathroom. Just wanted to use the restroom. It was a very odd experience! Also, the floor looked like it hadn't been swept in a few days. I won't be coming back.

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 takemy 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 questionsand 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, andwhile 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.

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 abouthaving 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 thateased my anxiety and understood I needed a bit more time with the exam. I will gladly go back and would recommend her!

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 througheverything. Honestly wonderful experience coming from something I’ve been dreading for days.

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 givingadvice 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.

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 adoctor'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.

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 andthen 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!
