I am currently under Dr. Leu's care and I'm so glad she's my oncologist. I have had several bumps in my road and she has always been very attentive and caring regarding my situations and concerns. She keeps things real and honest. Her staff is wonderful and I am lucky that I chose her.

Dr. Leu has been treating my mom for about 3 years now and she is easily one of the best, kindest, and most empathetic doctors. She has excellently and expertly explained everything that we have asked and needed to know, including the diagnoses, tests, treatment plans and next steps moving forward. Her team is also fantastic, knowledgeable, and quick to help. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a cancer specialist.

I would not recommend Dr Leu to anyone facing a cancer diagnosis let alone a terminal cancer diagnosis. Her delivery of clinical findings, treatment plan and prognosis was extremely poor. She only told us there was no curative treatment options available after specific questions from the patient. I’m extremely disappointed that this physician has been recognized for excellence in her field. She is the definition of a doctor with no ability to empathize and clearly deliver a difficult diagnosis.

I have been treated by Dr Leu for 3 1/2 years for Osteosarcoma. She is very knowledgeable, compassionate and her and her team are always quick to respond to any issues while I'm home and take action quickly.
