Receiving his Bachelors at Arizona State University in 1997 and his Doctor of Medicine at the University of Arizona, College of Medicine, in 2001, he completed his residency in Internal Medicine in 2004 and a combined hematology and oncology fellowship at University of California – Davis in 2007.

To ensure his patients have access to new medicines and treatments, he has participated in cutting edge clinical trials.
He has published research papers in notable journals such as the Journal of Clinical Oncology as well as presented at the American Society of Clinical Oncology annual conference.
Dr. Huynh chose medicine as a career because he feels that it is a gift to be allowed to enter a person’s life and care for their physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being. He enjoys interacting with patients and chose to work for The Oncology Institute of Hope and Innovation because of their reputation for putting patient care first.
His personal philosophy on care is that he is treating a person and not cancer.
