“We will care for our patients as we would our family.” This motto is ingrained in each member of our staff. In our practice, we provide a respectful and caring environment in which the patient and the doctor can together treat any skin issues that may arise.

Dr. Kien T. Tran, MD, PhD is trained as a Dermatologist and Dermatopathologist and treats patients of all ages, from infants to geriatric patients. His practice includes general dermatology, skin cancer surgery, and cosmetic dermatology. He received his medical training at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine and his specialty training at UT Southwestern Medical Center. Prior to becoming a dermatologist, Dr. Tran was involved in skin research at the University of Pittsburgh. Dr. Tran has been voted BEST DERMATOLOGIST in Rowlett and Rockwall by the readers of Living Magazine in 2013 through 2022 and has received numerous awards including the Patient’s Choice Award in 2013.

When Dr. Kien Tran founded this practice, he knew he wanted to include the name “Liberty” within it. As a child, Dr. Tran’s entire family escaped from a Communist country after the Vietnam War and after his father was released from a Communist concentration camp. As a result, after he graduated from residency and fellowship, Dr. Tran wanted to honor this important family heritage.

Dr. Tran teaches medical students and dermatology residents. He serves as Clinical Assistant Professor of Dermatology at The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center. Dr. Tran takes great joy in being a skin specialist and serving the skin care needs of the surrounding community.
