I wanted to post this in case anyone found themselves in a similar position to me, or was looking to visit Dr. Tran's office for truly thorough doctor care. I recently had to go on hormone therapy - yes, birth control, because I have a history of ovarian cysts. Which if you have ever had one rupture, you know the pain is so terrible it can even cause you to faint. While running track in college, as the condition affected my athletic performance I was sent to one of the best female doctor's offices. I was certain the care in Houston would rival that. Unfortunately, I was very wrong.

At my appointment Dr. Tran assured me that I needed to have an STD screening, which was highly offensive as the reason I was there, was not for anything related to having unprotected intercourse. She insisted many of her patients had an STD and didn't even know it. She was straight forward, which I can appreciate, but didn't seem to listen to my overall situation. I was put on Yaz - a 10 month supply, requiring me to come back very soon. She was also insistent that I needed a cholesterol screening - something I wholeheartedly believe was unnecessary for a healthy 25 year old with a BMI of 18, and a test that should be left to a general care doctor. Honestly, what is an OBGYN going to do if my cholesterol is high?

Roughly after being on Yaz for a few weeks I started experiencing severe anxiety attacks - something completely unusual for me, who is typically incredibly unflappable. After a month of being completely opposite of who I am, and researching many options, I called the doctor's office and asked if it could possibly be the birth control. Please note calling the doctors office means listening to at least 10 minutes of advertisements for their "Aesthetic Center" - very frustrating when you are trying to get healthy, not look pretty.

I was assured there was no way it was the birth control pills. I stayed on them for another four months, seeking help for my anxiety and investigating other avenues. After the fourth month I realized that the few days before starting the active pills I felt much more like myself. Over time I continued to have spotting, severe headaches and dizziness. I finally called Dr. Tran's office again and asked if another pill could be called in for me. After listening to another twenty minutes about laser light treatment, hair removal, cosmetic options and whatever other money making scheme they were offering I was finally informed that after reviewing my chart Dr. Tran decided an IUD would likely be my best option and I should schedule another appointment to come in.

This was outrageous to me as she clearly hadn't reviewed my chart or she would have realized the intention of the birth control was to keep my hormone levels normal and not just allow me the option of having unprotected sex without risking becoming pregnant. As someone who isn't currently sexually active (and not afraid to admit it if I was), and given everything I had been through over the last few minutes, the last thing I wanted was to be told I had to come in, for an invasive IUD. I informed the receptionist I would be finding another doctor.

All in all, I feel that this Doctor's office main goal is to make profits and doesn't believe in truly caring for their patients. I do no recommend this office, and am thankful to this site for allowing me to review my experience and research other doctors.

Thanks for reading my rant. :) I hope this helps many of you in finding a good doctor for yourself.
