OB-GYN

Chicago, IL

About Dr. Michelle Trandai

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.

Medically Dr. Trandai is very knowledgeable, however; when it comes to insurance she's clueless. When I asked her what myinsurance covered, she stated, "I don't know, I just show up to work and do my job." Previously, doctors have been familiar with what insurance will accept and what they will pay for. This was frustrating because upon arrival and checking in, I was told they weren't sure if they take my insurance and I could be billed for the entire visit. So it would have been helpful to know what was covered in this visit and what I would be charged extra for.

My first visit to the clinic is really great. The clinic is simple but very clean. The nurses are nice and very efficient to their job. Dr. Trandai has an amazing bedside manner, and a good listener. She is very detailed and you can tell that she really care about your concerns. Even my husband love that visit, we just wish it’s near our home because of my morning sickness. But definitely, I’ll recommend it and I’m going back for more visits!

Everything was great with the office! However during my pap smear I was honest about my smoking drinking and sex life, as one is supposed to with their doctor. Dr. Trandai responded in ways that voiced he personal and non professional opinions. I was immediately judge for smoking cigarettes and not wearing a condom with my one sexual partner of 3 years. I shouldn't feel like a terrible person when leaving a doctors office.

I have been seeing Dr. Trandai since I started college as a freshmen. From my very first visit, I was nervous about getting a pap done, but she made all efforts to make the entire visit comfortable. I have been going back to Dr. Trandai ever since. She not only is very thorough and helpful in answering all of my questions, but also remembered details about my life, even after over a year of not seeing her. This personal touch made all the difference in an already great visit. Dr. Trandai talked me through different options thoroughly and made all efforts to accommodate my preferences and needs. I highly recommend Dr. Trandai because she provides exceptional quality health care in a collaborative, personal way.

I absolutely love this place! I went from finally leaving my Primary Care Dr. Farrah Khan in the loop for horrible service and trekked down north to Dr. Trandai because she was the only one available the soonest. They only require you to fill out 2 pieces of paper for registration. They don't make you wait long. The staff is all very friendly, quick and efficient. They get the job done quick and the Doctor has impeccable bedside manners. She was even able to do an ultrasound on my pelvic in the immediate moment where my other office and schedule that out with a tech and made me come back for that. The Doctor thoroughly examined me and she was very detailed, educational, well spoken and soft mannered. I have never had such a great Doctor like her. MY old office was ran by Nurse Practitioners and I never saw the Doctor. She also never gave me a call about my irregular test results to explain it better. She totally ignored my messages. Would highly recommend this Doctor plus she has hours on Sundays!!

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 and when 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.

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 the nurse 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 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.
