I tru­ly feel that every­one is respon­si­ble for their own choic­es and health and it is my job to give them the best pos­si­ble infor­ma­tion to make an informed deci­sion regard­ing their health. I also feel that pre­ven­tive health is extreme­ly impor­tant and am always will­ing to dis­cuss the best way for peo­ple to stay healthy and avoid medicine/​surgery as well.

Sep­tem­ber is prostate can­cer aware­ness month. Since prostate can­cer is the sec­ond most com­mon form of can­cer in men, start­ing at age 45 for those at an increased risk and age 50 for those at an aver­age risk, screen­ing options are avail­able to help catch can­cer at an ear­ly stage. Take charge of your health and sched­ule with your pri­ma­ry care provider to dis­cuss fam­i­ly his­to­ry and risk fac­tors to deter­mine if screen­ing is right for you.

"Dr. Gaonkar said something so smart; he asked if I had any history of asthma. I had been diagnosed with "cold weather asthma" when we lived in NYC from 2013-2017. The minute he said that, I recognized that the occasional shortness of breath I felt after the two week cold absolutely felt like asthma. It gave me great peace of mind to realize that. I know the triage nurse who set up my appointment with him asked if I was wheezing because she thought she heard that. What a sensitive and responsive firm this is!"
