Garry, you are very welcome. Now to answer your questions;
1. I would ask your for a referral... you will need one for him as he is a specialist.
2 I didn't wait all that long (maybe 45 days). But, like a contractor, if you can get in quick, that probably isn't good news.
3. I am not sure of the cost, but I had been told by a fairly reliable source (another urologist that doesn't do implants) that it is something like $12,000.
4. OHIP only I believe
5. I don't think I lost any size BUT, I was one of those very rare birds that got a very serious infection (almost died) and had to have my implant removed as a life saving procedure. I am scheduled to go back in November (minimum time for a revision, so everything is healed) BUT, I use to be a grower, after the implant, I was a shower. You really won't go wrong with Dr. Brock... he is the Canadian version of the US dynamic duo (but more affordable), is internationally recognized as an author, instructor and expert. He has been called as an expert witness against another doctor that was charged with sexual assult. I am happy to answer any more questions.
I saw you other question "does he do the surgery himself". The answer is sometimes. BUT remember these "students" are already doctors and urologists and are "students" of the surgical procedures, AND, he doesn't just send in the designated cutter (can you tell I have been watching a little baseball), he is standing right over the patient observing and directing. I feel totally comfortable with his "students"
I had Dr. Brock. He is FANTASTIC.
Don't believe all the bullshit you read on the net. People say that he doesn't take time to talk to patients... Bull shit. He answered EVERY question I asked. I even sent his secretary (Susan) an question, expecting she would ask Dr. Brock when she saw him and reply to me... less than 24 hours later, Dr. Brock called me and answered all my questions. This has happened at least 6 times. He is a FANTASTIC doctor. Yes, he is busy, that's because he is good. He has national and international awards, he instructs internationally and had been published in medical journals at least 5 times.
His contact info is as follows;
St. Joseph's Hospital
268 Grosvenor Street
London, Ontario, Canada N6A 4V2
Good Luck you won't be sorry
