Dr. Yungpo Su, MD
I am a medical oncologist with sub-specialization in the treatment of head & neck, thyroid, and esophagus cancers. As a person whose family has been deeply affected by cancer, I am passionate about patient care first and foremost. In addition, I am committed to clinical research, teaching, and also serve as the medical director for the Methodist Hospice and Palliative Care Program. My wife Lydia Kang is a physician as well as an author of young adult fiction. We have three wonderful children. I enjoy collecting vintage watches, playing guitar, and photography.

Dr. Su has been my oncologist since my diagnosis October 2009. He is very professional, knowledgeable, persistent in finding the best treatment and such a kind hearted physician who truly cares about his patients. He has given me the gift of time along with my support system and the grace of God. I highly recommend him and the entire facility. Wonderful people!

Once I was diagnosed with cancer Dr Su took primary responsibility for my treatment. He was a very professional and knowledgable doctor. He navigated my wife and I through my treatment and recovery. He laid out a comprehensive treatment plan on paper so we could easily follow and track my treatment plan. He made sure I knew what side effects to expect as the chemo and radiation cycle progressed. I would highly recommend Dr Su to any family member or friend.
