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.
