Professional Background

After graduating from Saint Louis University School of Medicine in 2012, Dr. Tran completed her residency in Dermatology at the University of Kansas Medical Center.

Hobbies and Interests

Dr. Tran enjoys cooking, traveling, trying new foods, and spending time with her husband, family, and friends.

Fun Facts

The best advice Dr. Tran received was “make your own happiness.” She studied in Costa Rica for three months, most of the time living in a cloud forest. Her favorite books are “Jane Eyre” by Charlotte Bronte and “Dune” by Frank Herbert. Her guilty pleasure is binge-watching a series on Netflix.


​ I care for infants, children, and adults and believe in a patient-focused approach for all. I feel that educating each patient about their skin conditions and available treatment options will lead to the best care possible.
