Anthony Bui

Anthony discovered his passion for podiatry after a childhood filled with basketball-induced lower limb injuries like fractured fibulas, ingrown toenails, and plantar fasciitis. These experiences sparked his interest in foot health and empathy for those dealing with similar issues.

Outside of his podiatry practice, Anthony enjoys a variety of hobbies that keep him grounded and active. He's a self-proclaimed kitchen adventurer, always trying out new recipes and flavors. When he's not in the kitchen, you might find him under the hood of his car, tinkering to keep it in top shape. Staying fit is a priority too, so he hits the gym regularly to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

In his work, Anthony combines personal experience with a professional focus on treating ingrown toenails and managing injuries. His goal is to not only keep patient's feet out of pain but also to understand their individual journeys to recovery. Together, he strives to help them achieve optimal foot health and overall well-being.
