Dr. Duc Nguyen joined the Total Foot Care team finding it an outstanding environment that matched his practice philosophy of providing exceptional, compassionate, and innovative care while treating patients like family. From his early childhood in Vietnam, Dr. Nguyen knew his life’s work would be medicine and promised his Uncle that he would use his talents to improve the lives of others. Before relocating to the Sunshine state, Dr. Nguyen completed his podiatric residency at Wyckoff Height Medical Center in Brooklyn, New York. His residency combined state-of-the-art podiatric medical training with advanced preparation in reconstructive rearfoot and ankle surgery. It was here at Wyckoff Heights where Dr. Nguyen achieved the status of Chief Resident of Podiatry and completed his board qualifications in 2019. Prior to residency, Dr. Nguyen graduated from Wayne State University in Detroit with a Bachelor of Science in Biology and a place on the Dean’s List. He then moved directly into the Doctor of Podiatric Medicine (DPM) program at Kent State University’s College of Podiatric Medicine in Cleveland, Ohio, where he completed a successful research internship in addition to his advanced coursework. Dr. Nguyen is bi-lingual and counts his experience as a volunteer recruiter and language instructor within the Vietnamese community in Michigan as one of his proud achievements. When not providing care for his patients, Dr. Nguyen can be found exploring his new hometown of Jacksonville. Finding Florida a perfect match to his interests, he enjoys fitness training and martial arts, as well as a deep love of fishing and golf.
