The biopsy came back positive even though all my prostate-specific antigen (PSA) tests were normal at the time. The doctor suggested I get checked in about a year, but I wanted something done sooner and decided to get a second opinion.

At a crossroads at my local hospital, I wanted a second opinion, and after seeing an ad about Fox Chase Cancer Center I decided to do some research. Right away Fox Chase made me feel like a priority.

Like most men, getting regular checkups is not at the top of my list, but my wife has always made it a priority. And I’m glad she did because about seven years ago, it saved my life.

The level of teamwork and communication amongst the doctors was reassuring. Even though I felt overwhelmed by multiple surgeries, treatments, and diagnoses, I took immense comfort in the prompt actions taken my team of physicians.

After Daniel Haubrich was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2005, his urologist did not think he was a good candidate for surgery, and he offered Daniel little hope that he would make a full recovery. Daniel knew he needed a second opinion and scheduled an appointment at Fox Chase Cancer Center to see a more experienced surgeon. This time, he was recommended for surgery, and after both surgery and radiation in early 2006, he is now cancer free. "I am grateful to both Dr. Chen and Dr. Horwitz for their positive attitudes, their commitment to care, and for treating me with respect," he said. "My experience at Fox Chase was always positive."
