Kien Tran, MD, PhD

At Liberty Dermatology, each patient is treated with kindness, compassion, and dignity. The practice welcomes patients of all ages who are facing any kind of skin-related issue, from skin cancer to acne, birthmarks, diseases of the skin, hair loss, or rashes. The practice also performs cosmetic procedures including Botox treatments, chemical peels, skin tag removals, and sclerotherapy for spider veins.

Through his experience in skin research and his years of training in medical school, residency, and fellowship, Dr. Kien Tran understands that no two patients are alike. That’s why Dr. Tran and his team of skin specialists remain committed to providing an exceptional level of personalized care to each patient.

“We want to care for our patients like they’re family,”

says Dr. Tran, who has long had a passion for dermatology. He received his medical training at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine and his specialty training at UT Southwestern Medical Center. Before becoming a dermatologist, Dr. Tran participated heavily in skin research at the University of Pittsburgh. 

Today, Dr. Tran rises as a leader in the field by serving as clinical assistant professor of dermatology at The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, where he teaches medical students and dermatology residents.

When Dr. Tran founded Liberty Dermatology more than six years ago, he named it after his own personal experience. “It’s named Liberty Dermatology because I was a child refugee from the Vietnam War,” he says. “My father was held captive at a communist concentration camp after the war, and my family escaped from the communist country.”

With compassionate care the cornerstone of his practice, Dr. Tran finds it rewarding to help others. “I get to see children and adults every day and treat people who have skin cancers such as basal cell cancer and melanoma and potentially save their lives,” he says. “On the other hand, if someone wants Botox, I can help them look younger and feel more beautiful.”

Whether you suffer from an irritating rash or you’ve been diagnosed with skin cancer, let Dr. Tran and the team at Liberty Dermatology free you of the anxiety and discomfort that often comes with skin issues. The team can also renew your confidence through a variety of cosmetic procedures.

Whatever kind of dermatological care you seek, you’ll receive top-tier medical expertise at Liberty Dermatology. “We’re very good at treating the skin. We know medical dermatology very well and we know how to treat skin cancer,” says Dr. Tran. “We’re focused on providing the very best patient care.”

Open Monday through Friday, the practice strives to offer same-day appointments whenever possible. With Liberty Dermatology voted Best Dermatologist in Rowlett and Rockwall by readers of Living Magazine from 2013 to 2018, you can enjoy peace of mind knowing you’re working with one of the area’s premier dermatologists who truly cares about his patients.

“I treat others the way I like to be treated—with compassion,” says Dr. Tran. “We’re here to help other people.”
