Medical Oncology and Hematology
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.

When I visited Dr. Chua for a routine physical and mentioned some pain in my left side, she ordered a CT-scan which indicated to Dr. Chua a "suspicious" growth on the outside of my right kidney. From there, she ordered an MRI which showed a definite tumor. She recommended me to Dr. Benjamin Niver, a Urologist, who performed surgery and the outcome was a Papillary Carcinoma Renal Cancer tumor. Without Dr. Chua's intuition and knowledge, the tumor would not have been discovered in what ended up to be in its early stage! I cannot say enough for her competence and caring instincts and would highly recommend her. I rate her five stars ***** – D.F., February 2021

I was very lucky to be seen and evaluated by Dr. Cynthia Chua, the doctor with the great experience and knowledge, combined with a unique personal approach and compassion. I also was very much satisfied with the lab and nursing personnel, as well as with the careful organization of the waiting room in the COVID-19 times. – B.C., January 2021
