David Samadi at www.RoboticOncology.com is certainly one of the most prolific here. He is now the favored Dr. for the New York Times. He is practically superstar in NYC when it comes to that whole Dr. persona thing. He is on TV and in the paper all the time. Very vocal proponent for PCa treatments. He is proficient on
open, Laparascopic and Robotic. As he said, if something comes up and he needs to finish surgery as an
open procedure, he is skilled to do it. He was with Memorial Sloan Kettering, Columbia-Presbyterian then finally Mt. Sinai gave him the moon to go there.
He is also an amazing person - smuggled out of Iran as an orphan boy during the revolution, raised on the kindness of strangers, he considers it his mission in life to give back to all the people who helped him. Gives you his cell phone etc.
