      Dr James took his time , explained all the options, answered all of our questions without being in a rush. Cancer is a life changing occurrence and demands understanding providers. Dr James exceeded our expectations.

      Overall, this was a bad experience. After the first discussion point, Dr. James gave the impression that I was wasting his time. Questions were answered with short responses without any detail or explanation. If not for the second appointment with Dr. Wang, I would have left with the intention of seeking care elsewhere.

      I really wanted to know my current PSA 3 months after the start of my medical care. Just to compare. It was not possible.

      Although part of me wanted Dr. James to tell me what he thought I needed to do, he instead provided clear explanations on what my choices are, answered my questions, and is leaving the decision up to me. Altho anxious about making a major medical decision, this is how I wanted to be treated & I can figure out what I need to do.

      Both Dr. DiCarlo and Dr. James were attentive to my husband's needs. He has MS and was on the verge of needing a bedpan, which I forgot to bring with me. Teresa Warren communicated this with the Medical Providers and they helped us be seen quickly so that I could get him home. The kindness and thoughtfulness they communicated was extraordinary. Thank you!
