"I came to Dr. Steckel as I had been seen by a prominent urologist at Winthrop and was told I had 90% chance of prostate cancer. I had to wait 3 plus weeks for a biopsy, and one day after the biopsy, I was rushed to my town's ER with sepsis. I've learned since that the antibiotic I was given in advance was not one geared for the protection of the prostate. I was hospitalized for 5 days. My biopsy turned out to be negative. I went to another urologist, local, for 2 years and after one year having an MRI, this year he wanted me to have a biopsy. I went to Dr. Steckel who told me that if I urged him for a biopsy so I could be assured I didn't have cancer, he would not agree........"you were almost killed already having a biopsy, it is a risky procedure, and there are other things we can do if I think we have to explore more"........as it turns out, my PSA stayed within a certain area, prompting Dr. Steckel to tell me that while it went up, it went up minimally, he didn't even recommend an MRI........I'm to see him again in 6 months. He is patient, clear, makes me feel confident in him............terrific MD and my late brother was a physician, and I know how special he was to his patients, I see it in Dr. Steckel."
