About the Center:
Golden Gate Cancer Center is a subsidiary of Golden Gate Urology. It was founded by physicians for patients with prostate cancer. Patients with prostate cancer treatment have different options and patients deserve a center that is focused on increasingly complex technical therapies. Using an integrated care approach, we brought together experts in surgery, radiation oncology, and pathology to do just that.
Our entire team is focused on your success at Golden Gate Cancer Center. Each team member contributes through excellence within their own specialization. We are committed to coordinating your care with other members of the team; an approach that we have found facilitates the best results and values your time.
Prostate cancer manifests differently in patients and can actually be treated in a variety of ways. Working as a team allows us to present all treatment options in a way you can understand. The net effect for you is a smoother experience, less stress, and an optimal outcome.
Your day-to-day expert care givers – from assessment through post-treatment evaluation – are an oncologist, a urologist, and your primary care physician. Together they guide the delivery of treatment and provide consistent, personalized assessment in a caring and informative atmosphere. You are considered a fourth member of this team and an integral part of every discussion and decision.
