Why I Became a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine

Dr. Trinh

As the Managing Physician at Mason Park Medical Clinic, Dr. Quyen Trinh has many accomplishments and has overcome many obstacles to get to where he is today. One of the most significant influences in his life is his family, who played a pivotal role in shaping his professional career.

 

Early Years

Quyen Trinh grew up in Vietnam with his parents and siblings. After the fall of Saigon in 1976, the family fled to the United States and eventually settled in Houston, Texas. 

As immigrants, there were limited job opportunities available for Quyen’s parents, Ky, and Thuy Trinh. They worked hard at blue-collar jobs to provide for their family and to receive their citizenship. Their parents’ hard work and determination made a significant impact on the Trinh children. It instilled them with strong values and a work ethic for success.

The family’s early struggles cemented the need to excel in school. When the matriarch of the family, Thuy Trinh, was diagnosed with cancer, her devastating diagnosis, along with watching the ravages of the disease, further shaped the children’s lives. 

Three of the four children received their medical degrees while the fourth went into finance and currently works on Wall Street.

Early Career

Due to his mother’s illness, Quyen decided to switch his major from engineering to medicine. Dr. Quyen Trinh graduated from Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences in 1996 with a Doctor of Osteopathy and completed his Family Practice Residency at the University of Texas Health Science Center in 1999.  Before becoming the Managing Physician at Mason Park Medical Clinic, Dr. Quyen Trinh was a Physician and Partner with Kelsey-Seybold Medical Clinic for almost 20 years. Dr. Quyen Trinh’s sister, Dr. Trang Trinh, established Mason Park Medical Clinic in 1996 to serve the residents of Katy, Texas. Like her brother, Dr. Trang Trinh was fully committed to providing the highest quality of care for her patients, and it was her passion and dedication that shaped the clinic to become what it is today. Unfortunately, Dr. Trang Trinh passed in 2019 from cancer, and her brother Dr. Quyen Trinh took over the practice for his sister.  Dr. Quyen Trinh is a compassionate Board-Certified Family Practice Physician with exemplary service in the medical field practicing accountable and evidence-based care since 1996.  Dr. Trinh Recognitions and AwardsDr. Quyen Trinh has been awarded recognition by the National Committee for Quality Assurance Diabetes and Heart/Stroke Recognition Programs In addition, Dr. Trinh was also the recipient of the TX Top Docs Award for 2020.

Family Traditions
