About the Author
Dr. McHugh has been a private practice urologist in Gainesville, Georgia, for over twenty years. He was a R.O.T.C. cadet and received his undergraduate degree in Chemistry at North Georgia College in Dahlonega, Georgia. He went to medical school and did his urologic residency at the Medical College of Georgia in Augusta, Georgia. He and his wife Karen have been married twenty-nine years and have three children. His interests include history, his dogs, and anything related to water and fishing. He was diagnosed and treated for prostate cancer in 2007. Witnessing for years the frustration of his patients making "the decision" regarding which therapy to choose and then having to experience it himself, prompted him to define the decision-making journey for others. During the three months it took for him to decide, it became clear that the decision is multifaceted and depends a lot on the patient's particular situation at the time of diagnosis. Combining his story-telling abilities with his medical insight and experience, Dr. McHugh offers the reader a fresh and novel approach to deciding what to do about his prostate cancer.
