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.

Five years ago, I was told that after 36 years being cancer-free, I had cancer again. People whose opinions I trusted told me to see Dr. Chua. She has been treating me for 5 years and I have had few if any problems. Main thing is we are keeping the cancer from spreading and I am still alive and have celebrated my 79th birthday and 55th anniversary. I would definitely recommend Dr. Chua. – D.B., August 2020
Dr Chua is the only oncologist that I trust. I have been with her since 1992 for three or four different cancers. What she says goes. She is loved by me and I'm sure many of her other patients. – T.S., August 2020
Dr Chua is a brilliant oncologist and hematologist. She is very patient with her clients, answers all questions, and is a very pleasant and empathetic person. I drive 100 miles for my appointments. – J.D., July 2020
