My husband, who is 75 had a psa last month, the reading was 18
We saw the urologist, who is only in town for a week every month, as we live in a very rural area.
We were told to come back this week, (July 8th) for a prostate biopsy.
I called the office on tuesday, and never got a answer ....or a date
Tomorrow is thursday...........what can I say to the front office staff
to get this biopsy done ???
If I just let it go......... it is another month till the Dr returns.
The Dr is wonderful............the front office staff is NOT.

I encourage you to be very persistent when you call and do not take no for an answer.

Also, please let the doctor know (with specifics about the time/day that you called) about being ignored or mistreated.

I hope you have an answer soon!
