Sent biopsy to a lab that did not identify aggressive adenocarcinoma cells. Followed with incorrect MRI test for biopsied prostrate. Told patient with grade 5 cancer cells that treatment could be postponed 9 months.

Dr. Root was exceptionally capable and compassionate in the care of my 98-year-old father with bladder cancer. He made the difficult end of life care as thoughtful and gracious as could be. Our whole family is so grateful to him.
