Healthpointe is pleased to announce that Dr. Sam Truong will be joining our team to offer dermatology services. Dr. Truong completed his undergraduate training at the University of California in Irvine, where he graduated at the top 1 percent of his class. Following his undergraduate career, Dr. Truong received his Medical Degree with alpha omega honors from the University of California in San Francisco, which consistently ranks as one of the top three medical schools in the country. Dr. Truong went on to complete his medical and dermatology residency at the University of California in Irvine where he was selected as chief resident by his professors and peers.
As an American Board of Dermatology certified physician, Dr. Truong specializes in medical, surgical, and cosmetic dermatology, including conditions affecting the skin, hair, and nails.

Additionally, Dr. Truong is an expert in many cosmetic procedures, including injectable fillers, Botox, lasers, chemical peels, and sclerotherapy.
As an experienced dermatologist, Dr. Truong also specializes in dermal fillers such as Botox. Dermal fillers are clear gels which are injected under the skin, and can offer patients a wide range of corrective and cosmetic applications. Dermal fillers such as Botox treatments are the most commonly performed minimally invasive cosmetic procedure in the United States. The benefits of Botox can include increased hydration to the skin, smoothing fine lines, and giving cheeks and chins more definition. Botox can offer immediate results that are tailored to the patient’s individual needs in a safe and non-invasive manner with little to no down time required.
In addition to his academic accolades and extensive experience in dermatology, Dr. Truong is involved in various professional endeavors. Dr. Truong is a fellow of the American Academy of Dermatology as well as an affiliate of the American Society for Mohs Surgery. Dr. Truong has presented at numerous conferences, including the Los Angeles Metropolitan Dermatologic Society and Orange County Dermatology Society annual meetings. He has also published many peer-reviewed articles covering medical and surgical dermatologic issues. Dr. Truong also has been involved with teaching residents and medical students while working at the VA Medical Center in Long Beach, California.
