David Duong, MD, PhD
Meet Dr. Duong
Dr. Duong was born in Saigon, Vietnam, and arrived with his family in the United States as war refugees. He grew up in Knoxville, TN, as the eldest of three children. With the help of private scholarships, he earned a B.A. in Molecular Biophysics & Biochemistry and Religious Studies at Yale University. He subsequently earned both an M.D. and a Ph.D. in Molecular Physiology & Biophysics at Vanderbilt University in the NIH-funded Medical Scientist Training Program. He completed his internship in general surgery and residency training in urology at Stanford University. Over the course of his career, he has published numerous scientific articles and presented his work at national meetings.
In 2009, Dr. Duong established a well-respected private practice in the heart of San Francisco, specializing in minimally invasive urologic surgery. In the summer of 2017, he moved back to Tennessee to be closer to family and joined Urology Associates, P.C.
Always friendly, prompt and professional. I highly recommend you consider visiting Dr Duong should you ever need to see a urology specialist.
I have been a patient of Dr.Duong @ Urology Associates since 2020. It started as being unhappy with care being provided by another Physician & needing a 2nd opinion. I’m so thankful I did. Not only did Dr.Duong find the cause of my condition, he & his excellent staff have provided me with the care I need to manage my health and stay focused on getting better results. I have been provided with answers to my questions and medications to help live with diagnosis. Dr.Duong has made my life easier to live and manage as I age! I now look forward to my visits.
I was at Urology Associates this morning, and from check in till the time I left - it was a most pleasant, reassuring experience. Dr. Duong is not only very knowledgeable and personable, he is a very supportive and encouraging. I greatly admire and appreciate him ...and his staff. Thank you, "Dr. Dave"!
