Dr. David: A Whole New Chapter of Good Health

“My journey began in September of 2020 with an elevated PSA and as any man can attest– it’s a silent fear we all hope not to encounter. After researching the many options of treatments, I found your website that gave me hope of the best treatment possible. From my very first telephone call to the follow up MRI in September 2021, I could never have asked for a more thorough, professional, articulate, personal and pleasant experience. You provided explicit and detailed explanations of all my assessments, test results and recommended procedures while providing the most valuable tool of all– you listened to my questions and concerns. Your responses put me at ease that I had made the right choice in finding you for treatment of my prostate cancer.

My hope is that you truly sense that my two small words of saying thank you do not even begin to hold their meaning. My health is excellent, the fearful diagnosis of prostate cancer is behind me with you providing the best treatment any man could possibly hope for and as I continue to follow your regime of follow up exams, I feel it’s a whole new chapter of good health to enjoy!

Steve’s Story

“My journey to find Dr. Sperling started with the fateful words: You have cancer. I was fortunate to get hooked up early-on with The Georgia Prostate Cancer Coalition whose mission is to help newly diagnosed individuals understand what treatments are available. Their members helped me talk my way through the options—which all sounded terrible—without being judgmental…”

Kevin: An Informed Decision

“My name is Kevin. I’m 58, and my wife Patricia and I have been married for 35 years and lead very active lives. When I went for my annual physical in June, 2011 my PSA had risen to 4.6. My doctor referred me to a local urologist, and in August I had a standard TRUS biopsy of 12 needles…”

Warren: A Life-Changing Experience

“The urologist gave me two basic choices: prostatectomy or radiation. I consulted a robotic surgeon and a radiologist. I wanted more information about the exact location and nature of my cancer, but neither of them seemed willing to pursue further diagnosis…”

Herman’s story

“I am a 67 year old active male and I was diagnosed with prostate cancer in early September of 2009. After 2 trus biopsies and years of watchful waiting my urologist suggested another biopsy. The pain of the biopsy was too much and the options of surgery and radiation was something I wouldn’t consider unless it was my last option. I did a ton of research on focal laser ablation and soon after met with Dr. Sperling. He answered every question I had, was a really nice guy, and made me feel comfortable. I went through with the procedure. It took 45 minutes and I felt absolutely no pain. It’s been 2 years: cancer free and still no side effects. From me and my wife, Thank you Dr. S.!”

Harry: A Positive Report

“Dr.Sperling: So far, I must report that I have had no side effects from the procedure, including bleeding. I was back to 95% on day 1 and 100% by day 2. It is beyond me that more men are not pursing this option. Obviously they don’t know about it, or if they find out about it they are being advised, as I was, that the procedure is too new and untested. One would think they would get the logic—If it can’t hurt you it is worth a try. A person can always do something more radical. Also, it would seem to me that MRI biopsy should be the standard.”
