Hello trishtrish and welcome to Connect. I moved your discussion from Men’s Health to the Cancer group and added it to a current discussion taking place on prostate cancer and treatments. I encourage you to read the whole discussion and explore the many great links that are in this discussion.
I would also like to introduce you to @warrens, @dglass4040, @ronoir, @oldkarl, and @morris who have previously discussed their experiences with prostate cancer and various treatments for prostate cancer.
I am also inviting @travelgirl who was treated for cancer in Jacksonville, as well as @v1crew and @coastalgirl who are in the transplant program in Jacksonville. They may be able to provide insight on their experiences with receiving treatment at Mayo Clinic Jacksonville.
@trishtrish, it may be helpful for other members if you were willing to share a bit more about your diagnosis of prostate cancer. What are your concerns about prostate cancer, and which specific treatments you are curious about?
hi. I don’t know about MN vs FL but what I can tell you is that I have been to a multitude of hospitals. I have never been to one where the staff listen to you, and try to help you. From the valets on up.though I am not a cancer patient, if that program is anything like the transplant program, I would go with it . The facility is state of the art, clean,and professional. I have a lot of confidence in this facility. Plus it doesn’t snow here! lol
We have been to both Rochester and Jacksonville. My husband’s radical prostatectomy was performed in Rochester, and he’s had several different procedures at Mayo in Jacksonville. Both institutions are AMAZING. And, someone above mentioned staff not slowing down to speak to you and listen to your concerns–well, you won’t find anyone like that at either of these Mayos. We found both institutions to run like (excuse the language) well-oiled machines. Highly organized, catering to their employees, their patients AND visitors. So that being said, one really needs to look for the right doctor, no matter the institution.
Welcome to Connect, @rinron. It’s helpful to have someone who has had experience at both the FL and MN locations of Mayo Clinic. How is your husband doing today? Is he in treatment?
Hey @ronroir, we haven’t heard from you for a while. What treatment decisions have you made? Radiation?
