      Drs Strup and St. Clair are awesome! Those guys took me as a patient when my PSA was escalating and my previous doctor was not showing eh concern that I felt was appropriate. My first visit was May, 2021 where I received a consultation and recommendation of plans from the doctors. In November, after a PSA jump, the plan was altered and my recent PT scan found the likelihood of a tumor in the prostate. I am grateful for their attentiveness to my issues.

      The reason I came to UK HealthCare was to get people that actually show concern for my situation. I had a bad experience with another urologist before I sought out Dr. Strup, through recommendations from several friends who were patients. He has exceeded my expectations so far.
