Mark P. Schoenberg, M.D., F.A.C.S., is an associate professor in the Department of Urology and Oncology and director of urologic oncology at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.Review:
"Bladder cancer is a major disease, but it has a low profile in the public consciousness when it comes to cancer. One result for the thousands of patients diagnosed each year with this condition is that they find very few sources of reliable information, other than the specific advice of a personal physician. The Guide to Living with Bladder Cancer fills a true healthcare need. It is an excellent addition to medical literature in this era of proactive and involved patients." -- S. Bruce Malkowicz, Co-Director, Urologic Oncology Program, Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania
