Not too long after Gary’s prostate removal, his PSA numbers began to increase and he made the tough decision to complete 39 radiation treatments.
It was then Gary met Dr. Swamy and shortly after began his 8-week course of radiation treatment at the Epic Care practice in Dublin.
“I felt very comfortable with Dr. Swamy since my initial consult. Dr. Swamy, and the rest of the Epic Care Radiology team, took my hand and helped guide me through treatment.” says Gary. He continued, “Really, it’s the preparation for each session that requires work. In the beginning, when I was just learning and my circumstances weren’t right, Elise and Amanda coached me very kindly and made sure my treatments were safe and effective.”
Now, 8 weeks later, Gary has completed his Radiation treatment and shares,
“Going through this is not easy, add the threat of COVID-19, and I have been especially limited to what I can do. The entire Epic Care team is made up of wonderful people that I looked forward to spending time with. Albeit brief interactions, each visit was such a pleasure. I felt safe, welcomed, and knew they were taking every extra step to keep me and the other patients safe.”
Gary shares, “There are a lot of people who show up each day for treatment with very serious illnesses, yet no matter the circumstance each is greeted by a helpful hand and smiling face when they walk into the Epic Care practice. They truly do a fantastic job!”
