Brad Bryant, musician
I wanted to thank you for taking such good care of me from beginning to end with my aggressive Gleason 9 Prostate Cancer. I can honestly say I had no pain and every treatment from the many biopsies I was given (I am glad you were so thorough) and no pain following the robotic surgery. I felt great and I missed no work except for my recovery after surgery, which I loved because I have taken no time off from my work. As you know I have a full time job and also I am a musician and Choir Director for our church and I also play about 30 one-hour performances at Senior Assistant Living Facilities. I was out on a job right after my biopsies feeling fine. I missed only ten days of playing and that is all. I did not enjoy that catheter for 6 days that was my only gripe. I can say that was the only part of all this that bothered me. It was not painful just annoying.
The most important aspect of all this was your guidance and willingness to answer all of our questions. My wife Alice had a long list every time we came in and you answered every question and your demeanor was such that we did not worry. We knew we had the most capable physician. You gave us strength and hope. I think a person must be optimistic and that is so important. I am so glad we stayed in our own city and I know we made the right decision.
