Is his prostate surveillance safe?

Appears knowledgeable and can be nice but often curt and hurried (2 minute consults) & hard to reach by phone. Other urologists are doubtful of his prostate surveillance style. Strangely sure of his holistic approach and supplements given lack of research and that prostate cancer remains a mystery to medical science. Doesn't believe in biopsies & relies mostly on PSA., which may not be the best evidence of non-progression if there's malignant cancer (according to other urologists). Doesn't talk much about the basis for his opinions or ideas. Hard to know whether his ideas make sense.

What is he smoking?

Recommended zyflamend to me then it caused balance problems which led me to fall in my bathtub and off my bike. Now I have a broken tailbone and a seriously injured knee. It's your fault because you told me to take it! I fell because of you!
