Meet the Doctors
Dr. Andrew “Andy” Tran
“Every patient should be treated as if they were a member of our family,” a sacred principle that Dr. Sam Williams has entrusted in me and as such, I will continue to provide the friendly, quality and respectful care you have come to expect from this office over the years.
A Florida native, I grew up in Tampa where much of my family still resides. My wife and I have two young children and a sweet labradoodle named Charlie. I currently reside just outside the north Orlando area. Aside from work and family, I enjoy archery, playing guitar, working out, and sipping fine whiskey. I am a proud fan and supporter of the U of F Gators. Go Gators!!

Dr. Van Mai Vu
A graduate from the Southern California College of Optometry, Dr. Vu achieved outstanding contact lens service recognition in its contact lens department and is a current member of the American and Florida Optometric Associations. With a focus in pediatric optometric exams and the treatment and management of ocular disease (including diabetes, glaucoma and macular degeneration), Dr. Vu draws from her time at the University of California, Davis where she graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering in 2009 and preliminary California mathematics teaching credential in 2012 to apply her passion for teaching and learning to research the latest treatments and services available to improve the lives of her patients.
Her hobbies include singing, cooking, traditional and digital art, pyrography, piano, guitar, and clothing design. Despite her aversion to travel, Dr. Vu is a seasoned traveler, having been to 49 of the 50 states (not including Alaska), Canada, China, Vietnam, Hong Kong, and spent a year teaching English in South Korea. Spending the first 30 years of her life in California, Dr. Vu now happily resides in Lake County, Florida where she enjoys the summer thunderstorms and blazing heat.
