I was diagnosed with breast cancer in late 2016. We had a cousin in Florida who had also had breast cancer so we asked for a recommendation and immediately she said you have to get Dr Tan-Chiu.She was able to get an appointment for Dec 28th just after the Christmas rush. I was traumatised by my diagnosis but was put at ease as I met Dr. Tan Chiu.She spent a long time with my family and I explaining in words and terms we could understand. She also had a surgeon who would be able to do surgery.

I'm quite sure I wouldn't be a healthy 17 year breast cancer survivor without the outstanding care I've received since my initial diagnosis from this incredibly brilliant & truly caring oncologist! She & her wonderful staff have many state-of-the-art clinical trials to offer to patients, which can make all the difference to Metastatic patients like me. If you go to her for a 2nd opinion, I think you'll want to stay :)

I have been with Dr Tan Chiu since 2005. She is the most kind, caring and knowledgeable doctors I have known. I had breast cancer 2 times and she steered me through my mastectomy in 2005 until now and continuing on through the years to come. On June 22, 2017 I will celebrate 12 years cancer free. If you need a wonderful oncologist run don't walk to see her.

Dr. Tan-Chiu is wonderful! She helped me through breast and kidney cancer. She is very thorough, competent and clearly explains treatment. I also like that she is involved in research. She is realistic and has a sunny personality, which I very much appreciate!

Dr.Tan-Chiu is one of the finest doctors I have ever seen.she is compassionate,caring and extremely knowledgeable. The research that she is involved in today and in the past makes her and the practice a valuable resource. She consistently will spend time with you, she will review records and options with you at each visit. You never feel rushed, no question is pushed aside. Truly a spectacular doctor.

My breast cancer had rapidly spread to stage 4. That was when I was referred to the best medical oncologist, Dr. Elizabeth Tan-Chiu. She exhibited patience and compassion. She explained in great detail the nature of my cancer. Her treatment protocol is confidently administered by her excellent nurses Cathy and Judy; also the staff is very professional. Her undivided attention is consoling and her kind words calmed my anxiety. I am alive today because God sent an angel in Dr. Tan-Chiu.

Amazing doctor who kept my Stage 4 wife alive, happy, and with a high quality of life for 13 years. This was due to her compassion, cutting edge knowledge and empathy. Always has time to thoroughly explain the situation, and the ways ahead and fully takes into account the patient's needs and lifestyle when prescribing medication. Great partnering doctor and staff, especially Cathy, the chemo nurse.

I am a 4 stage metastatic breast cancer patient and I have been a patient of Dr Elizabeth Tan Chiu for many years. Her level of expertise is exceptional and she is a very compassionate person. You cannot ask anything more. She is a doctor you can talk to. Also her stuff is great, especially her assistant Dr Carcas and the chemio nurse, Kathy, very dedicated persons and knowledgeable. I feel comfortable with everybody even during hard times. They are there to help you.

Dr Tan-Chiu made me aware of my condition like no other Dr ! She spent so much more time with me , informing me , educating me and over all making me aware of what to expect . Dr. Tan-Chiu really made me feel like I was a person and not a number or pay check , thank you for all you have done. Anyone with the unfortunate diagnois of cancer would be thankful to have her and her team on your side.

I first went to Dr. Tan Chiu with breast cancer. She was compassionate and knowledgeable without being arrogant or intimidating. After a mastectomy I am now 4 years cancer free. I would 100% recommend Dr. Tan Chiu. She's explains everything, without rushing and always makes me feel comfortable and at ease when I leave.
