Doctor Xu is amazing. He is very knowledgeable, passionate, and caring for his patients and their care. It took me over 5 yeard to find a doctor here in the DMV who I trust, and actually like. I am usually traveling to NYC, to see my doctors who I had before moving here. Dr. Xu is understanding, and dedicated.

Dr. Xu recently treated my mother. He is a brilliant oncologist with a very positive attitude and a lovely, and appropriate sense of humor. He cheered my mother up without ever sugar coating anything. The family had complete confidence in his diagnosis and treatment regiment. A wonderful Doctor who cares very much for his patients.

Dr. XU thinks about Pt's situation first, he has incredible knowledge and humble. He diagnosis the rare disease (1.2: 1,000,000) which is other doctors in this hospital never heard it! He treats the patients with the same passion, no matter you are rich or poor, what color and age . He is an ideal MD in nowadays! I wish every doctor I have seen the same as him.
