About

Title:

Biography

 As a hepatologist, Feng Su, MD, cares for patients with liver concerns – anything from elevated liver blood tests or abnormal appearance of the liver on imaging to more serious conditions like cirrhosis or liver cancer. She also sees patients who are referred for consideration of liver transplant.

Her clinical interests include:

  • Liver cancer
  • Cirrhosis
  • Liver transplant
  • Post-liver transplant care
  • Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease
  • Hepatitis B
  • Hepatitis C
  • Alcohol-related liver disease
  • Autoimmune liver disease
  • Chronic liver disease

Born in China, Dr. Su immigrated to the United States as a young child, growing up mostly in Missouri. She knew from a young age that she wanted to become a doctor.

“I've always loved science, figuring out how things work, and learning new things,” Dr. Su says. “Medicine is constantly changing, and I love the excitement of learning about – and contributing to – new discoveries. I also love that I get to talk to and work with people every day, whether it be colleagues or my patients.”

Dr. Su attended Duke University as an undergraduate and went to medical school at Washington University in St. Louis. She completed her residency and fellowships in gastroenterology and transplant hepatology at the University of Washington in Seattle. Passionate about providing evidence-based care for her patients, Dr. Su also received a master’s degree in clinical research and completed a research fellowship at the University of Washington. She joined the UVA faculty in December 2020.

For Dr. Su, the most important element of delivering quality care is getting to know her patients.

“Every time I meet a patient, I want to know their story – even if I've already combed through their medical records,” Dr. Su says. “Not only does it help me figure out how to help them, but it also helps me learn what's important to them.”

Outside of work, Dr. Su enjoys cheering on the Duke Blue Devils.

“I love working at UVA,” Dr. Su says. “But in terms of my sports allegiances, I bleed Duke blue.”
