"I have seen the treatment of cancer evolving over the past 40 years with new innovations, discoveries and techniques which have been challenging and also rewarding to me," Dr. Ginde states. "We have much more understanding of prostate cancer now than we did a few years ago."
Dr. Jay (as patients sometimes call him) stresses, "Not all prostate cancers are alike. Treatment of prostate cancer is now complex and yet safe as we add new technology, new treatment options and molecular genetics for personalized care of an individual with prostate cancer. I believe in the multidisciplinary management of cancer, which means more than just providing medical or radiation therapy treatment. I believe firmly in patient education, which means helping you understand your condition, answering your questions and putting you in touch with community resources. We make your fight against cancer a team effort."
"Cancer can be a frightening experience and patients and their families have so many questions. Counseling, individual cancer education, answering questions and offering access to support services is our major focus and is just as important as the treatment of cancer itself."
Dr. Ginde's philosophy for the treatment of cancer? Guided by science, Driven by compassion and dedicated to service and excellence!
