Dr. Duong graduated from Emory University School of Medicine in 1995 and did her residency at Children's Hospital Oakland (aka UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital Oakland). She practiced pediatrics in the San Francisco Bay area until 2015 when she moved to Cincinnati with her husband.
After 10 years of medical practice, she became interested in noninvasive treatment modalities that would decrease patients' pharmaceutical requirements and perhaps prevent the need of surgical intervention. Dr. Duong was drawn to acupuncture and began independently studying it and seeking out personal experience with various acupuncture styles. Japanese acupuncture, because of its gentle needling technique, resonated with her. She attended the Harvard School of Medicine Acupuncture Course for Physicians from 2014 to 2016. Since then she has continually sought out training from world renown acupuncture teachers to further deepen her knowledge and regularly travels to attend their seminars.
Dr. Duong maintains her American Board of Pediatrics status. She feels that being a "bridge" between the eastern and western medicine traditions is an important role for her.
She has practiced primary care pediatrics at Cincinnati Children's Hospital, and community clinics in Alameda and San Mateo counties. She has also practiced urgent care medicine at UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital Oakland.
