Patient Reviews Request Appointment
Cynthia C. Chua, MD, is a medical oncologist and hematologist who likes the intellectual challenge that comes with the cancer specialty. It requires a broad base of knowledge and skills in order to fully understand how each patient’s disease developed and how it is advancing. With this knowledge, Dr. Chua and the care team use the latest treatments to help patients fight their cancer.
Dr. Chua is one of those rare individuals who possesses these skills, especially in the areas of breast cancer, lung cancer and lymphoma. She also serves as the principal investigator for gynecologic cancer clinical trials at OHC because she is a firm believer in the benefits of research. “One of my patients entered a clinical trial eight years ago for his advanced lung cancer. This gave him access to the newest drugs and a new sense of hope. Today, he is still surviving and living life to the fullest. This wouldn’t have been possible without the critical access to a clinical trial,” Dr. Chua explained.
Dr. Chua combines her clinical expertise with an ability to put patients at ease, instilling a sense of calm hope throughout their cancer journey. “The team and I listen carefully to our patients and answer all their questions and then we develop a care plan that reflects their individual needs,” said Dr. Chua
In her free time, Dr. Chua enjoys spending time with her grandchildren, cooking…and eating the food she cooks.

Dr. Chua is a wonderful doctor, easy to talk with, explained my cancer condition in easy to understand terms. I feel very comfortable in her presence. – J.S., October 2020
I appreciate Dr. Chua. She is very kind, patient and answers any questions I have. – L.B., October 2020
I think so highly of Dr. Chua that I have recommended her on 2 occasions. One was to a fellow cancer patient when her oncologist moved out of the area. The other time was an individual who had just been diagnosed. Both women came back and praised Dr. Chua as the best physician because she made you feel special and was willing to treat the WHOLE you (mental and physical). – D., October 2020
Interaction with Dr. Chua very positive. She instills confidence and seems very "human." She is very patient friendly. – P.B., October 2020
