Leading robotic prostate surgeon, Dr. David Samadi, responds to recent article that some doctors may be keeping secrets from patients. He addresses each topic as follows:

1. Over-testing and over-prescribing - Medicine is highly complex and, as such, doctors may order many tests or provide prescriptions - Dr. Samadi encourages patients to seek 2nd and 3rd opinions

2. Antibiotic overuse - this is an issue and may lead to antibiotic resistance. Many illnesses are viral and will resolve on their own in a week or so.

3. CPR has limited effectiveness - Dr. Samadi believes this is still a vital rescue tool

4. Stress tests provide limited information - Dr. Samadi suggests that they may be overused and may be unnecessary for patients without symptoms to warrant stress testing

Αφού διαγνώστηκα με καρκίνο του προστάτη στην Αθήνα όπως ηταν αναμενόμενο ανησύχησα πολύ.  Αφού ρώτησα τριγύρω άκουσα πως ο Δρ. Σαμάντι θα ήταν η καλύτερη επιλογή.  Πολύ φίλοι τον συνέστησαν και η εμειρία τους ήταν άριστη.
