I was born in Vietnam and raised in Sweden. While fluent in Swedish and English, I also speak Vietnamese, Chinese, French and still learning Spanish.

My passion for podiatric medicine comes from my work as a field nurse in the Swedish Army in Stockholm and a knee injury sustained during my younger years while playing professional soccer. In 1992, I came to the United States and attended Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, Arizona. I graduated from Barry University in Miami Shores, Florida with a Doctor of Podiatric Medicine (DPM) degree. I completed my primary podiatric medicine residency at Cedars Medical Center in Miami, Florida followed by a podiatric surgical residency at East Jefferson General Hospital in Metairie, Louisiana.

In 2005, I joined Foot Center as a foot specialist and surgeon, since then I have been blessed with the opportunity to treat and diagnose my neighbors in the McAllen, Weslaco, and surrounding communities with various foot and ankle conditions from small infections to amputations. McAllen has become my home and the Rio Grande Valley my town. I am fortunate to have married here and to have witnessed the birth of my daughter at Knapp Medical Center. And although I was not born in the United States and I am not Hispanic, I am a proud American and feel part of the Hispanic community who has embraced and welcomed me. My family, my patients and my staff are the reasons I love my job. I pray God and you the community will continue to allow me to serve you for many years to come.

I was born in Rhinelander, WI. Seeking warmer climates, I moved to Texas where I completed degrees in Biochemistry and Philosophy in 1986. While in college and playing a starting guard on The University of Dallas basketball team, I sustained a serious ankle injury. Despite being treated by the team Orthopaedic Surgeon for the Dallas Mavericks professional basketball organization, I had little to no motion in my right ankle after three months of treatment. My salvation and reestablished range of motion occurred when I visited a Podiatric surgical specialist in the Dallas area. That experience made me decide to specialize in foot and ankle trauma and do it through the realm of Podiatric Medicine so I attended Temple University College of Podiatric Medicine in Philadelphia and graduated in 1995.

After receiving my Doctor of Podiatric Medicine degree (DPM), I was accepted as a Surgical Resident at The Graduate Hospital – the training facility for newly graduated doctors from The University of Pennsylvania. After my three-year surgical residency, I completed a one-year Lower Extremity Trauma Fellowship at The Podiatry Institute also affiliated with The University of Pennsylvania. I practiced in Corpus Christi, Texas for a few years, which included a Clinical Professorship in Medicine via The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio and lectured to the Family Practice Residency interns at both Christus-Spohn Health Center in Corpus Christi and Bay Area Hospital in Corpus Christi. I also spent a year sharing Diabetic Limb Salvage techniques I’d developed during my practice years at King Abdulaziz Medical City Hospital in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

I’m looking forward to working again in the Rio Grande Valley, brushing up on my Spanish and helping the residents of the area.
