About Yifan Tu
When it comes to treating her cancer patients, Dr. Tu believes it's important to understand not just the disease, but the whole person—their lives, successes and struggles. Through this, she can better assess her patients' healthcare needs and provide treatments, comfort and strength during what is often a very difficult time. Board certified in internal medicine, medical oncology and hematology, Dr. Tu has particular interest in breast cancer and has conducted clinical research in that area. When she isn't caring for patients, she's living her faith by participating in Christian fellowship in St. Louis, serving students from China and introducing them to Jesus Christ. She also enjoys spending time with her husband and their son—and sneaking treats to the family dog, a Labrador retriever.
