Plus an interview with Dr. Epstein
I likewise was diagnosed with Gleason 3+4 in two minute systematic samples on a fusion biopsy. Dr. Epstein identified both as 3+3. Over the years since then, my PSA has steadily dropped to less than half its value at that time. No symptoms. Thank you, Dr. Epstein. I hope that after your well-deserved time off you will return.
Dear Dr. Epstein, I hope this is nothing more than some, extra, well deserved time off. I am sure I speak for many others when I say your personal touch, and willingness to share it, has helped inform and encourage many men. We all look forward to seeing you return and resume your scheduled duties. kapm
When I was diagnosed with Gleason 7 (3+4) in November 2006 I read 5 books including advice from Doctor Patrick Walsh to get a Second Opinion on biopsy slides from an Expert Pathologist. Dr. Epstein saw my PcA as Gleason 6 leading to be becoming an Active Surveillance Pioneer. He saved my prostate and quality of life. A prayer for Dr. Epstein!
