Dzung Trinh, MD, FACP

Internalist | Gerontologist

Do you want a doctor who listens to you, takes the time to understand your concerns, discusses their findings, and partners with you about your health care? I can provide that type of care for you.

Compassionate and Caring:

When I see a patient, I spend time not only learning about their medical problems and the medications that they are taking, but I spend time learning about that person’s life experiences, baseline functional status, and what matters most to that person. I believe that, as a primary care physician, my role is to educate patients about their chronic conditions and up-to-date treatments and to partner with them to maximize their well-being.

Experienced and Prepared:

For the past 25+ years, I have been taking care of geriatric (aged 65 and up) patients in many  different settings: my office, their homes, board and care facilities, assisted living facilities, hospitals, and skilled nursing facilities. I have extensive experience managing patients with numerous complexed medical conditions in all of these settings. Recognizing that managing these conditions needs a multi-disciplinary team, I have worked with numerous partners in Fresno to provide my patients a full scope of care. I am looking forward to building a lasting relationship with you.
