Tryban, originally from Huntington Woods, Michigan, holds a bachelor's degree in evolutionary biology and a master’s degree in epidemiology from University of Michigan. His time with Dr. English, who specializes in internal medicine, will involve providing medical care to patients across the Port Sanilac and Sandusky areas and beyond.
