Hi, I am a medical student working for a family practice doctor. We recently encountered a patient who on routine examination was found to have rising PSA levels. My patient suspects that he has prostate cancer. My attending wanted to first rule-out whether or not he has prostatitis (infection of the prostate gland) before resorting to biopsy done by a specialist. My patient asked me if I knew of a good urologist. Surprisingly, my attending does not know of a good urologist off the top of his head. He asked me if I knew. Can anyone recommend a good urologist in the Houston,TX area? Thanks.

You can find preliminary data on Dr. Krishnan on this web page:
http://dbapps.ama-assn.org/iwcf/iwcfmgr206/SESSION_ID=2453366/SESSION_AR=86/frm_name=aps_result?action_detail.x=hello&row=65&key=1&amap=N&form_type=r

Highlight the URL with your mouse & clik "Control C" (same as copy)and then paste it into the address bar with "Control V" or "paste"

From the sounds of cneil7 he comes highly recommended.
Good luck, Benji
