I'm seeing different urologist all around USA because I move around a lot. I have been patient of Dr James Relle for 3 years because I trusted him. It turns out that Dr James Relle is the worst urologist in the whole USA. Run as fast as you can. I did and now all my problem solved

He left a positive margin on my husbands prostatectomy -- thus allowing the cancer to spread. My husband died at the age of 61. AVOID HIM !
