Dr. Huynh immigrated to America at the age of ten. Although life as an immigrant was extremely difficult, he did not take his opportunity for education for granted and graduated from high school ranked 3rd in his class out of 450 students. The difficulty did not stop there. His mother passed away prior to him completing his surgical residency. “My mother was my biggest supporter and one of my goals in life was for her to see me become a surgeon. Although she was not there physically, I know she was with me every step of the way,” Dr. Huynh said. His achievements would not be possible without the sacrifices his parents made for him. He dedicated his success to his parents and family.
Dr. Dustin Huynh is a medical director of Surgical Critical Care at Osceola Regional Medical Center. He graduated from Seattle University with a Biochemistry degree and attended the University of Hawaii – John A. Burns School of Medicine. He went on to complete a general surgery residency and surgical critical care fellowship at the University of South Carolina, where he was nominated for Resident of the Year and was the recipient of the Chief Resident Award.
