Is anyone aware of a good oncologist with a focus on the various hormone therapies and combinations thereof, within driving distance from Chicago?  I find Dr. Charles Myers' work hopeful and wondering if there is someone in the Midwest with that type of knowledge.  

(Father is 83, G4+4, PSA 56 on finesteride and several bone lesions)

Thank you!

    Don't know about the Medical Oncologists in the Chicago area. 

    I suggest that you look for one who specializes in Prostate Cancer only.

    I would consider investigating major medical institutions in the area.

    Suggest that you network, by attending local support group(s). ..The organization USTOO sponsors local support groups worldwide...go to their site.
