Mychael Luu, MD FAAD

Dr. Mychael Luu narrowly escaped from Vietnam at the age of 10 with his family 3 days prior to the fall of Vietnam on April 30, 1975. The family was airlifted out by the American army among hundreds of thousands of people desperately trying to escape the communist regime. After arriving in America, his family stayed a few years in Canada prior to coming to the United States. His father was a well-respected physician in Vietnam. Everything was lost during the escape except for a few bags of personal belongings. Adjusting to a new environment and a new life is never easy.

Dr. Luu went on to attend McGill University in Montreal, Canada, earning a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science with a minor in Biology. He graduated from Lousiana State University Medical School in New Orleans in 1991. Dr. Luu did 3 years of Internal Medicine Residency at University of South Florida, not the happiest of days. Dr. Luu then saw the light and did his Dermatology Residency at Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio from 1994-1997. He is board certified in Dermatology. He has successfully completed recertification for the Board of Dermatology twice.
