Did they actually do a biopsy or any other imaging studies?
If you are going to a small community hospital, and not a hospital (or doctor associated with a hospital) that is in the top 50 of the nation...then I
think what you are probably seeing here is not a cure of cancer...but a mis-diagnosis in the first place.
Small community hospitals are places to go to die or to go to die quicker. I won't go to small hospitals ever...I always travel for over an hour to
get to a larger city with better hospitals. Small hospitals are notorious for having the very worst doctors (because they aren't skilled enough to
get jobs at real hospitals) and ironically they are the most arrogant doctors.
So I am very interested in how "G" was diagnosed in the first place...all I keep hearing you talk about is the PSA and a physical exam...if they
"diagnosed" based off that...that is just criminal.
Yes, he had a biopsy done at the Duluth Clinic, Duluth, MN, along with a whole battery of tests to make sure it didn't spread. He definitely had
cancer, so face it, natural cures do work.
Anyways. Here are two problems for today. As this poster brings up. G has no paperwork right now that shows his diagnosis and being old school, he
didn't sign up for online records. First thing Monday, he will get access to his online records so that I can post his original diagnosis and biopsy
results. Also, I went to my office but forgot that our scanner scans everything directly to the creative directors computer so I have no way to access
that until Monday. Although, I may try to find a scanner yet today. I'm going to just manually enter some of the document here though and will still
publish the scanned document Monday. Keep in mind here that G told this doctor that this was his first check up so that there was no bias. He didn't
reveal to him that he had cancer. He wanted to get an honest opinion about his situation. So, don't go calling me a liar until after I post the
diagnosis documents and this one together on Monday. And I'm still protecting his identity on here. I don't think he even cares if I do use his name
but I'm going to continue to block out his personal info for now.
