Tom – Nov 07, 2020
When I got the shocking news of a breast cancer diagnosis, I went to see Dr. Hu since he had been highly recommended to me. Even though my appointment was made on short notice, I was impressed by how well-prepared he was. He already had my lab results and reviewed my mammogram images online with me, comparing them to earlier images. He spent a lot of time explaining things to me, exhibiting a very reassuring depth of knowledge about tests and treatments.

Temple City, CA – Mar 15, 2017
In the course of my treatment for cancer Dr. Hu has made wise choices that have restored my health. He always answers my questions, including questions that I submit through the UCLA patient portal, and I never feel that he is rushing to move on to the next patient. I would recommend him to anyone who needs an oncologist!
