Good morning. Thanks for your reply. I went to Ryan powers, very young and cocky, Dr Kaplan, the same, Dr Agins, all useless, just did urine test, testicular exam and d r e and sent me on my way. Not one of them explained what prostatitis is, how you get it or anything. Finally went to Dr. M. Michael Hayyeri in phoenix. Very kind man. He sat down with me in no hurry and asked me to explain what was going on. When I said, you mean the entire last 4 months? He said, absolutely. He listened attentively and then proceeded to tell me what prostatitis was, how they believe it is acquired although in my case we have no clue because I have never had a UTI in my life, how it is treated and specifically why it is so difficult to treat. I must say that although all the young women in his office are extremely friendly, the office does not seem to be run very well. That being said I would highly recommend him because he is the only one who took the time to listen, and properly diagnose my condition, and he will be my urologist from now on.

Excellent information @normandhebert
Thank you so much for taking the time to educate everyone on this platform. You may save someone from a lot of unnecessary pain and suffering by providing the appropriate diagnostic test name. Now everyone in the group is aware of this test and when to request it. Excellent heads-up. Have a wonderful day 😊
