Cancer Free 3 1/2 Yrs

October 11, 2021


I had been going to NJ Urology since Dr. Levey was there then, and as I got older, I started going to Dr. Alan Siegel who is a wonderful caring doctor. I was there getting my regular PSA check just before I was getting married. I said to Dr. Siegel can you do a full blood workup. He said sure not a problem. Well, I no sooner got home and got a call to come back and that I had a pretty big mass in my prostate. He said that it was cancer and it would need to get surgically removed, but that he didn’t do that part. So he put me in touch with Dr. Thomas Christiano.

Let me tell you that he is the best surgeon in the world!!!!! He always was sure of himself, explained what he was going to do, and what might be the side effects. I was in the hospital waiting to get my surgery and he came to visit me. I was scared I was going to die. The whole time he told my wife and mother not to worry. He was sure that I would be fine and bounce back and said it with no hesitation. I also have to give thanks to his assistant. I don’t remember his name, but both of them should be very proud of themselves. I had a couple of weeks of downtime, but I bounced back with no side effects. He never once was unsure of the surgical procedure and never gave me false hope. It’s been 3 years now cancer-free. He saved my life and I owe him everything — the best doctor in the world hands down!!!!!
