I wish to offer Alizabeth Truong, M.D., my strongest possible recommendation as she embarks on a new phase of her career in the Seattle-Tacoma area. She has been my dermatologist for the past several years and has, in that capacity, served me with exemplary professional dedication and expertise. I have experienced some complex dermatological issues, and Doctor Truong has been consistently attentive, prompt, and accurate in her diagnoses and treatment.
I have also consistently referred family members and medical colleagues to her. All have concurred with me as to the excellent care she offers. Her relocation represents a loss to me, but I certainly wish her the very best. Any and all new patients will be fortunate to have her as their physician.
A few words about Dr. Alizabeth Truong -
Let me begin by saying how fortunate all of you new (or future new) patients of Dr Truong's are to have her as your doctor. I can say from my own experience that Dr. Truong is truly missed by her patients in San Diego, in part for some of the reasons below:
1. Dr. Truong is EXCEPTIONALLY thorough, conscientious and professional. She takes great pride in her work and, like me, is a perfectionist. I find these to be qualities that I admire and look for in my doctors, and why I have been so happy to have been Dr. Truong's patient for the last 8 years.
2. Dr. Truong is no nonsense. She gets right to the point, is honest in her opinions and is forthright in her assessments. I value her judgment and have always followed her advice with great success. She is spot on!
3. As a dermatologist, Dr. Truong sees most patients on a regular basis. She has always been concerned about her patients wellbeing and truly cares how her patients are doing. I can tell from her manner that I am more than "just a face" and that means so much to me. It's nice when someone remembers you by name.
In the last few months of my care under Dr. Truong, I decided to have a procedure that required weekly visits. It was during these visits, while waiting for my turn in the exam room, that I heard many other patients, as they left her office for the last time, tell Dr. Truong just how much they were going to miss her and how much they hated to see her leave. One gentleman expressed my thoughts exactly when he said, "Let me know when you move back and I'll come right on in..."
Dr. Truong, THANK YOU for your kind attention and care over the years. I never worried because I knew that I was in the very best hands!!
With true and sincere wishes for the very best future,
To Whom it may concern,
I'm writing this to let you know how much we appreciate all the care that Dr. Alizabeth Truong has done for us for almost 10 years.
We are more than just her patients and she is a friend. We appreciate all that she has done for us in keeping us free of skin cancers and caring for our 80 year old wrinkles.
We wish her and her family well and hope they will enjoy their new life in Beautiful Washington State. She will be missed a lot.
Richard & Mary
To whom it may concern:
Our family has been patients of Dr. Truong since the beginning of her Dermatology practice in San Diego nineteen years ago.
Not only is Dr. Truong an expert in her field of Dermatology, but she shares her knowledge of other areas of medicine which, in fact, resulted in a benefit to my husband, James. A routine blood test which she ordered revealed a problem with his kidney function, an issue which had been overlooked by his primary physician. Follow up visits with a nephrologist resolved the issue.
In my case, Dr. Truong recommended that I discontinue daily fish oil which had been prescribed by my primary physician. The fish oil was contributing to a rash on my back.
In addition to Dr. Truong's wide knowledge of medicine, she makes a point of learning the interests of her patients. It is not unusual in both of our care that while performing a procedure, she will be chatting about books, sewing, or golf with James. She is able to distract us and at the same time expertly treat us.
We will miss her friendship and expertise and our loss is the Pacific Northwest's gain.
Brita & James

I have been a patient of Dr. Truong for quite some time. She's extremely knowledgeable and easily answers and explains all questions thoroughly. She makes a visit to her office and receiving treatment a pleasant and stress-free experience which cannot be said about most doctor visits. - Joseph L
Over the years I have known many doctors, some of them excellent. I have never met a physician who could compare to Dr. Truong. She is in a class by herself. She is extremely kind, caring, sensitive and totally devoted to the wellbeing of her patients. Her expertise in the field of dermatology and her knowledge of her specialty is incomparable. - David H.
Dr. Truong & staff,
Thank you for your continued efforts to help keep me healthy. When I'm outdoors, I hear a little voice that says, "Put your sunscreen on." This little voice sounds very much like Dr. Truong. Thank you also for those who found my earring after my recent ear biopsy & mailed my earring to me. In appreciation, Kathy C.
