Prostate Cancer

June 3, 2020


Early 2019 I had an elevated PSA. Since my dad had prostate cancer I immediately sought out a urologist. My in-laws recommended Dr. Gregory Lovallo. From our first meeting I felt very comfortable. Dr. Lovallo did not hesitate to send me for an MRI and then a biopsy.

In April I was diagnosed with prostate cancer. Needless to say hearing the word “cancer” hits you like a ton of bricks and knowing what it had done to my father I wept. But Dr. Lovallo was there for me, he explained in detail my options, answering all my questions with such patience. Within one month of my diagnosis, I had my prostate removed. Although I certainly was terrified of surgery, I was confident that I was in good hands.

Last week’s PSA – one year after surgery, I am Cancer-free, feeling fantastic with no side effects. I owe it all to Dr. Lovallo who was with me from day one. His knowledge, and compassion is impeccable. Also, his staff who is so professional and responsive. Thank you everyone. Stay healthy everyone and get yourself checked.
