I read Dr Wheelers site and he has been doing targeted biopsies for awhile I think.

Read this http://www.ronaldwheeler.com/radical.shtml

 

It sounds like he is against regular biopsies and sometimes against removal of the gland. Some of what he says makes good sense

I like to read everything I can just to be more educated I guess rolleyes

this is the one I read about the MRIs method Wheeler uses. Not sure about his Peenuts saw palmetto stuff but the read is interesting. I have listened to his webnairs and they too are interesting.
