When I first spoke to Dr. Robert Cole on the phone for introduction and to discuss about my prostate cancer seed implant treatment. I felt as if we have known each other for years. I felt so good and relieved. Because I had gone through frustration with couple of radiation oncologist doctors. Then I met him in his office. He explained about the procedure in detail and in simple terms. He answered all my questions and concerns. He is very knowledgeable, polite, relaxed , friendly and smiling. He is the kind of person you would want to be around to. His concern before and after the operation were awesome. May God continue to bless him. And continue to treat a lot of people with his humanity, kindness, And his tremendous Medical cancer knowledge. I really thank God. I met and went through Dr Cole, for my prostate cancer seed implant treatment.

When I was told that I had prostrate cancer it through me for a loop to say the least. Meeting Dr. Cole was definitely an awesome experience regarding my condition . He was very friendly and extremely knowledgeable in explaining the procedure I was there to discuss in language we could understand. He took time with me and my family answering all our questions even though they might have seem trivial never rushing us. He definitely has a unique personality that even put me at ease in the operating room. Thank you Dr. Cole for you care.

If you are dealing with Prostate Cancer and you are contemplating the Seed Implant procedure, Dr. Cole is the Doctor to go to. He will sit down with you and walk you through the entire process. He spent a lot of time with me on the consultation with a visual demonstration showing you exactly what he will be doing. He calls you himself with setting things up and gives you his cell phone number. That to me is unbelieveable. He has great bedside manner and is still very passionate.

What a guy!!! friendly, easy to talk to, not your normal egotistical medical doctor. Like a new friend you met at a bar sharing experiences over a beer. Very knowledgable; takes as much time as needed to explain any questions. Always smiling, very upbeat. The consultations before and after the operation were the same.......he couldn't have been nicer and spent as much time as needed to explain any questions we had. He's the kind of guy you'd want sitting at your dinner party table.
