Six years ago, my wife was told that there was an 85% chance that I would be dead in five years. I briefly saw an oncologist who wanted to be really aggressive with my condition, but I couldn't tolerate that protocol. I chose to be treated by Dr. Chue, who was unfazed by my diagnosis of stage 4a cancer that had eaten a hole in my bladder. I tolerated the low-dose chemo really well. Now, all my scans and tests are still coming back normal. Thanks, Dr. Chue!

“Colon cancer can be curable” Dr Chue told me at our first visit with him in 2014. I’ve just returned from a trip to Guatemala and was sick from food poisoning. I received a scan at Tacoma General and I remember the look on the physician’s face when she told me how sorry she was to tell me that I had metastatic colon cancer that spread to both my lungs and liver. My primary physician told me to live my life and then hospice. I went to SCCA and Swedish hospital and they both said chemo until I can’t tolerate it any longer. My daughters researched and found Dr Chue. He spent time explaining his approach with low dose chemo and then surgery to remove the tumors. I had three surgeries in 5 months. Six years later I can testify that Dr. Chue was correct “Colon cancer can be curable.” Yes, he is brilliant but most importantly Dr. Chue really cares and he is the best and now I can honestly consider him a friend.

I am extremely appreciative of what Dr. Chue did for my sister. She was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in January 2016, and she passed away after 22 months. She started treatment with Dr. Chue after an unsuccessful clinical trial at Virginia Mason. Dr. Chue was caring, he listened well, he was flexible, he adjusted the protocol based on his judgment and my sister's reaction to drugs. I believe that it was Dr. Chue's caring and kindness that helped her to have fair quality of life for 2 years.

He has saved my life! My husband and I met him July 2014 and started treatment the next day! He does weekly, low dose, metronomic chemo. & supports our immune system. He thinks outside the box. He doesn't use the cookie cutter approach. We see him each time we come in for ANYTHING! He values each patient! He has the best results we have seen! I went from stage IV HER2/Neu breast cancer, dying, to cancer free within a year and half. Now dealing with brain mets but I won't go anywhere else!

Dr Chue and his staff are compassionate and knowledgeable - Back in 2016 I was given 2 months with stage 4 Pancreatic cancer. Its almost a year and things are going well so far. Following Dr. Chue's metronomic chemo was a godsend to me. I just returned from a long road trip :) Peace, Prayers and Love to all fighting Cancer! <3

Elizabeth in Camano Island WAQ – Jul 12, 2017
Over a year and a half ago, witha diagnosis of 3-6 months to live, I was sent home by my oncologist with no plan. My son found Dr. Chue on the Internet and read of his accomplishments. Dr. Chue felt he could give me more time, as he put it. After 15 months of weekly low dose chemo, traveling 240 miles each week and following other medical and naturopathic recommendations, I am blessed to have lived to see my newest granddaughter and living a normal retired life.Many thanks to Dr. Chue and staff.
