    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!
