He has a keen interest in sports and biomechanics but also discovered a passion for all aspects of podiatry. He enjoys doing his best with every patient with a warm and friendly approach ensuring he provides top-quality care and great outcomes.
Hiraku’s vast cultural background has made him very open minded and believes everyone has a story to tell and a lesson to teach, no matter how big or small. He looks forward undertaking continuous education and applying his skills and knowledge to more challenges in the future.
Andy Huynh - Podiatrist
Born and raised in Brisbane, Andy graduated in 2018 with a Bachelor of Podiatry from Queensland University of Technology (QUT). Having previously completed his Bachelor of Nursing at QUT, Andy decided to continue his education and pursue a more specific field. Podiatry has allowed Andy to move on from nursing while still being able to stay within the health field and continue what he loves doing most – helping people by providing top quality care.
Andy’s background as a half Chinese, half Vietnamese Australian kid has allowed him to be able to get along with everyone and speak three different languages – Cantonese, Vietnamese and English. Andy is a proud father of a 1 year old daughter and is expecting a new addition to the family in October.
Andy’s communication skills have been adapted from the days of when he was a nurse making him easy to talk to and allowing patients to feel at ease. This in turn, has a positive effect on patient outcomes as he is able to retrieve important history and formulate a patient appropriate treatment plan.
Continuing on from the previous point, Andy is passionate about helping people live pain free so they can enjoy what matters most to them. This involves not only providing excellent care but also educating his patient’s about preventative and conservative management techniques that can be completed at home.
Andy’s hobbies and interests include (but are not limited to), Fishing, Archery and Woodwork. Although these interests are not very heavy on the feet, this does not stop his ever-increasing interest and curiosity in biomechanics (young or old). With curiosity comes hunger for knowledge. Andy is excited to involve himself in continuing professional development programs regarding Biomechanics, Pressure analysis and treating High Risk feet.
