Grandfather's Prostate Cancer

He is an incredible doctor that not only saved my grandfather's life but also had the bedside manner to talk him through on the days when he wanted to give up on himself after finding out he had prostate cancer a second time. Yes a second time, after having his prostate removed fifteen years earlier by another doctor. Had he stayed with that doctor we may have very well lost him and that's how we came to find Dr. Shoulder for a second opinion. He answered all of our questions and phone calls(even the first one to my crying mom). He was the best thing that could have ever happened for my grandfather and our family!

Highly qualified, caring and professional

I reside 55 miles from Dr. Sholder's office, but came to him on the advice of a good friend and practicing physician at St. Clair Hospital when biopsies indicated cancer in my prostate. Dr. Sholder was very informative and provided me every alternative. I decided on the radical protectomy via conventional surgery, and I'm very pleased that I did. I was released from the hospital the day following surgery and upon my arrival home, I walked around my neighborhood several times. I was back to my office one week following surgery. Its been about 18 months since my surgery and my PSA remains negligible. I am pleased to say that I have no drips, runs or errors as the modified baseballs saying goes. If I had it to do all over again, I'd repeat every decision I made. Oh, by the way, I can't say enough about the staff in Dr. Sholder's office as well as those at St. Clair Hospital. The hospital staff were exceptional and made me feel like royalty. I hope I never have to be hospitalized again, but if it is necessary, I wouldn't hesitate to go back to St. Clair.
