Patient Success Stories

Dr. Howard Tay partnered with Dr David Strong at Canyon State Urology in June of 1999. He saved my life. I had been treated by another urologist for prostatitis for a full year without solution. I was referred to Dr Strong and within a week, was diagnosed with bladder cancer. His office immediately started scheduling me for surgery. I had read about a new type of procedure called the creation of an Indiana Pouch. When I asked Dr Strong about it he said he had never done one, but would talk to his partner about it. I don’t know if Dr Tay had, or just said he had for the experience, but on either June 1st, or June 2nd, 1999, they performed my surgery. They ended up removing a stage 3, grade 4, tumor. My 5 year survival rate was 5%. This June will mark my 20th anniversary. I just wanted to say thank you from the bottom of my heart. You see, I was prepared to go to another surgeon if Dr Tay had said no. I don’t know if things would have worked out this way, if I had. And, I also wanted to ask him why, the 3 times I saw him after the surgery, did he ask to see my stoma? Dr Tay, you did a wonderful job.
