Dr. Chopp performed a radical perineal prostatectomy on me in the fall of 1995. Twenty-one years later and I'm still alive. The usual benchmark to tell if one has beaten cancer is five years (although some doctors say seven just to be on the safe side). In any case, taking the more conservative figure of seven years, I've got that plus 14 years "change" left over. Charles W.

Worsthe urology experience ever. Stay away from this Dr unless you want a painful exam without any remorse or explanation of any kind.

Dr. Chopp has been extremely informative. I have seeing him since I was diagnosed with bladder cancer which he removed and continues to monitor. I have been very pleased with the treatment he has given me. The staff at his office has always been very helpful & friendly to me.

He took my medical history in less than 2 minutes after I've spent months trying to figure out what's going on. Told me he needed blood work and to come back in 10 days and we can discuss it. That's it - no bedside manner, no sense of caring at all the amount of time and research my other doctors have put into trying to figure out what is going on. A frustrating experience.

Prostate cancer runs in my family. Dad in his 60's, a brother, in his 40's. Now, possibly me, at age 63. I've googled BHP, prostate cancer and more, wanting to be familiar with all possible outcomes and scarying myself in the process. 1st visit (DRE) was the most discomfort I've felt (2 minutes). 2nd visit (prostate biopsies) the most discomfort - 3 shots lasting only 0.5 seconds each. 15 minutes later 14 samples collected. Discomfort was minimal, procedure was fascinating. Use Dr Chopp!!!

I had a 3 1/2 year period of medical work in re prostate cancer. My personal opinion is very low. To sum it up in my case. I think of him more as a profiteer than a doctor. Enough said !
