Patient and Relative Testimonials
After a high PSA test, a biopsy confirmed the worst scenario – prostate cancer. Dr. José Santos Dias calmed my nerves about the treatments and the prognosis. I did the right treatment at the right time, because I was lucky to find the right doctor. I did brachytherapy ... and returned to living life normally... cancer free. It’s a marvel of technology and science.
RFJ, 68 years old
I couldn’t believe it when my incontinence disappeared!! If you’ve never had it, it’s hard to know what bladder leakage feels like. Thanks to the talents of Dr. José Santos Dias, I had a small operation and was able to return home on the same day. The problem was over after a day. Thank you so much.
