I was told I was going to get a DNA test on my biopsy results in August and would be hearing from the doctor if it was very malignant by September the November virtual visit appointment did not happen because no one came to the appointment on the Doctor side then at my appointment this month I was told well we really didn't send in the DNA because your insurance company refused to cover it so there has been no communication about Any lack of insurance or if they even build the correct insurance I googled it and the decipher test is completely covered by Medicare so I'm not sure what happened but in any case my PSA came down so now we're just watchful waiting.

The reason that you received all 5's is that ever since I was diagnosed and all care received thereafter, and this includes the care received by urologist Dr Walsh at ACMC, I could not be more satisfied. All of those involved have been professional and courteous. I feel very fortunate that Dr. Berglund was my surgeon. He's obviously very skilled. Also, he has made me feel very at ease with his explanation of my current condition, possibilities in the future and any questions I have.
