Dr. Juanita Crook's Ratings
Dr Crook and her team have provided excellent care while addressing my prostate cancer. Her attention to detail is impressive. Even when on a very busy schedule she has always given her time and attention generously so my wife and I fully understand the issues and the treatment options available. She leads her team by example and they are an exceptional team. Her advances with brachytherapy for breast cancer patients is a great step forward. We are very fortunate to have Dr Crook in B.C.!
My Gleason score was a 7 and my PSA just under 10: "intermediate stage". I opted for brachytherapy instead of surgery or external beam radiation with a "brachy" boost and the clinical trial and am convinced that I made the right decision. Because of the Ont. guidelines, I had to pay for the "seeds", needles and the PMH admin charge. That's what $ are for. Insce. covered all but $600. Dr. Crook and her team are my heroes. I felt comfortable and taken care of during the entire process and had minimal "side effects" (now 5 mo. from my "procedure". I am convinced that her careful planning, skilled seed placement and follow up dosimentry led to the success of my treatment. (4 PSA on urology consultation, 7 PSA on biopsy and cancer diagnosis, near 10 PSA on treatment and now 2.5 PSA. She is the best. She was really there for me when I needed help.
Dr. Crook is an internationally recognized leader in Prostate Brachytherapy. She is thorough, caring and patient. I would highly recommend her. She took the time to properly stage my prostate cancer, something that wasn't done in Hamilton.
