Dad was diagnosed with prostate cancer about 14 years ago at the age of 79. His primary care doctor referred him to Dr Jurige because his PSA was elevated. Dr Jurige performed a biopsy and determined Dad had early signs of prostate cancer. It was still confined to his prostate and was treatable at that time, but Dr Jurige told Dad that at his age he would most likely never have problems with the cancer since it was slow growing. Therefore no treatments were done, but Dr Jurige examined Dad every 6 months and monitored his PSA. Several years later, at Dad's request, Dr Jurige referred Dad for a complete body bone scan which showed that the cancer had not spread to his bones, even though his PSA had risen to a very high level (over 50 compared to a normal level of 4 or less). At that point, Dr Jurige told Dad that he did not need to see him again. In the three years after that, Dad's PSA rose to over 500 and his prostate cancer spread to most of his bones. After much pain over several months about a year ago, a pain management doctor discovered Dad's prostate cancer had spread extensively to his bones and he referred him to a cancer specialist. They are treating his cancer to reduce the pain, but it is incurable. Dad's life will no doubt be cut short because of this, when it could have been cured when discovered in the early stages. I blame Dr Jurige for that and believe he has been negligent in the care for my Dad. He failed to refer my Dad to a cancer specialist or treat his cancer when it was treatable. We have absolutely no confidence in Dr Jurige.
