He has also pioneered microsurgical vasectomy reversal, endourology, and transrectal ultrasound prostate needle biopsy techniques.

Why you should seek a second opinion for your prostate cancer diagnosis and treatment.

Would another doctor agree with your diagnosis and treatment plan? Does your primary physician have specialized expertise in your unique condition? What are all your options? A second opinion can help you answer these questions and more.


Most doctors welcome other doctors’ opinions.Your primary doctor won’t be offended and you shouldn’t feel embarrassed. In fact, getting a second medical opinion is good practice. The more you know, and the more informed your healthcare team is about your unique condition, the better your medical care can be.

Second opinions for medically necessary procedures are covered by most health insurance plans.It’s important to check with your insurance provider about your individual plan, but most patients find that a second opinion (or a third opinion) is covered by health insurance. In some cases, it’s even required.

A second pair of eyes can offer specialized expertise.If your test results aren’t clear or are inconclusive, or if there are other options for treating your condition, a second opinion can provide additional insight, expertise, and confidence in your treatment plan.
