Dr. Rose was my radiation oncologist treating me for advanced prostate cancer. He was directly involved with my IMRT treatment and consulted closely on my HDR Brachytherapy treatment. He is first class in every way. I have complete confidence in Dr. Rose and recommend him without reservation.

Dr. Rose treated me for Prostate cancer in 2011. My complicated case was treated with the highest level of diagnoses and treatment. Dr. Rose was incredibly generous with his consulting prior, during and after the treatment to my wife and I. He fully coordinated with my Urologist and Oncologist at every step. With his thorough but carefully accurate treatment, from which I have never experienced any side effects, I am cancer free almost 5 year later (PSA 0.05) I have referred many others to him

He is thorough, informative, and instills confidence at a difficult time in a patient's life. He explained to our satisfaction every detail my wife and I inquired about regarding my treatment. His staff was outstanding. The radiation technicians and nurses were very professional, precise, polite, and caring. Office staff was efficient.
