      Dr Strup and the intern were great. A prostate biopsy isn't a pleasant procedure and some discomfort is expected. They explained things as we progressed through the process.

      Mo issue with care provider. Dr. Strup is a great doctor who shows his concern about his patients. The Issue is with overbooking appointments. Last appointment I had to wait 1 1/2 hours and I was told that appointments were booked from 8:00 AM even though the doctor did not start seeing patients until 8:30.
