are you sure you aren't venting something here? you are such a source of hard to find info on important PC matters, but i get concerned when you drift back into all this conspiracy theory stuff. just my opinion, but i don't think you will find many people will follow your premises here.

"My uro-doc shipped me to his buddy whom could care less about my outcome, and was trying to cashin on a vunerable patient(example given above prior)."

This is what you said, just one statement, but even it is so subjective. You were shipped to his buddy - you know for a fact that they have a "buddy" friendship, or did the doc just refer you to someone that he had faith in as the next step? Whom could care less about my outcome? You know for a fact that this next doctor did not care about your outcome? How did you determine that? Did he say something, did he do something wrong? And finally, the classic, was trying to cash in on a vunerable patient. So you know for a fact, that this doctor only saw you to make some money off of you, a cancer patient?

Not picking on your exact words as much as how what you are saying would sound to anyone else.

It sounds like an anger based rant, not the sound advice that you dug out in your research and experience.

Most doctors have spent too much time and money becoming doctors. Its a difficult path to become one, let alone a specialist. And in most, if not all, states here in the US, it so easy to sued, or worse, lose their license. So I don't know of a single doctor that is going to act reckless, just to make a quick buck.

I am more worried about some of the "celebrity" doctors that are promoted on HW on a regular basis, that manage to find time to write books, go on the speaking tours, and do make lots of money on these non-doctoring activities. I am more concerned about the thousands of good doctors that no one outside of a particular local area, that take care of their patients, and get to know them well on an individual basis.

Brother, I respect your opinions here, and I respect your right to say what you want but in my opinion, all this conspiracy stuff is counter productive, and serves no useful purpose to someone entering HW and seeking help for their PC.

Just my opinion,

David in SC

Not all doctors are involved in conspiracies, in fact the vast majority are very responsible, but you are naive if you think it is not common practice. The fact that urologists are now buying and setting up radiation clinics for their prostate cancer patients should be very worisome to us patients. I don't think for one minute that this is being done for the patients best interests. Nor do I think that the many pain clinics in Fla that dispense Oxy after a 2 min consultation are doing it in the best interest of their patients.
I think it is just plain smart to get 2nd opinions from doctors that have no relationship to the referring doctor.
It's a lot different dealing with a doctor that you know and trust vs a doctor that you have no experience with.

65 years old, rising psa for 10 years from 4 to 40; 12 biopsies and MRIS all negative. Oct 2009 DXed with G6 <5%. Color Doppler biopsy found 2.5 cm G4+3. Combidex clear. Seeds and IMRT, no side affects and psa .1 at 1.5 years.
