Dr. Stock is an exceptional doctor, an exceptional man - and a healer in the truest sense. For all his
skill and reputation, Dr. Stock is a humble man who connects with his patients in a most personal and empathetic way. I've
heard him say many times, "It's all about the patient." And it was certainly true of my experience.
Stock doesn't just treat a cancer; he joins you on the journey. He knows what's going on in your body, and he takes the time
to know what's going on in your heart. In my case: The man stuck with me through the full course of my nine-month, tri-modal
treatment - and beyond. Not every man needs that. But I did.
Dr. Stock is an extraordinarily patient man. He takes the
time to answer all questions, address all concerns - not simply as a professional courtesy, but because he sincerely wants
you to understand. Consequently, he favors face-to-face, personal connection. For me, he was always there.
my diagnosis - Gleason 8, high-risk of metastasis prostate cancer - in late 2010, I spent weeks searching for the perfect
doctor. I examined all treatment options, traveled the country, had face-to-face consults with some amazing cancer doctors.
That said: Dr. Stock stood out. And you know what? The longer I knew him, the deeper my admiration, the deeper my respect.
will never forget his professionalism and enthusiasm on the day of brachytherapy. Nor will I forget the depth of his care
and concern in the years since. Dr. Stock is an understated, down-to-earth man. For all his success, all his achievement -
4,000 patients, over 20 years -- he is not the type to boast about his accomplishments. But I think that's integral to what
makes him such a great doctor. His humanity. His humility. . . .
