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.

All the staff and doctors, especially Dr. Chua, have a calming effect of me! – Helen, December 2019
Dr. Chua was recommended to me by my surgeon. I was impressed with her thoroughness and her interest in me and that she did not see me as "just another patient." I appreciated that she is having more testing done to determine if I will need chemotherapy instead of just automatically assuming that I would. – Patricia, November 2019
