About me

Dongyan Liu, MD, is a fellowship-trained medical oncologist and hematologist who practices at MedStar Health. She sees patients at MedStar Franklin Square Medical Center. Dr. Liu specializes in the treatment of lung, breast, gastrointestinal, colon and rectal, and liver cancers. Additionally, she sees patients diagnosed with hematologic malignancies such as leukemia and lymphoma.

Dr. Liu is part of a multidisciplinary team of care providers at MedStar Health who meet regularly to discuss patient cases, analyze imaging, map out treatment options, and make decisions about the best possible plan of care to help each patient fight and beat cancer. She collaborates closely with MedStar Health’s clinical nurse navigator to streamline the process of care for patients, assure their questions are answered, and provide support that goes beyond treatment of cancerous tumors. She views her patients’ needs holistically, taking the time to listen, comfort, and educate, every step of the way.

Dr. Liu is a member of the American Society of Clinical Oncology, the American Society of Hematology, and the American College of Physicians. She is board-certified in internal medicine, and has positioned herself as a leading-edge oncology expert, with work published in a number of peer-reviewed journals.

Dr. Liu’s Philosophy of Care

“There are two things that stand out when I think about medical oncology, and why I love the work I do. First, I get to work closely with patients and see improvement as they go through treatment, and work toward remission and survivorship. Second, I value the unique bond I get to build with patients and their families. We work together as a team and go through this journey, together. I am with my patients every step of the way.”

    The oncologist seems very nice but is far too hard to understand. Therefore, I don't always feel confident after my appointments because I don't know half of what was said.

    Dr Liu is wonderful, listens to you and does research to find the best treatments for me.
