Joel Nowak discusses how one doctor, Dr. Emmanuel Antonarakis from The Johns Hopkins Hospital has modified his prostate cancer treatments in the era of the coronavirus.  Joel shares how Dr. Antonarakis has moved to using telemedicine when possible, the changes he has made for his patients on hormone therapy (ADT), and how he  is using chemotherapy differently for those men who need it as well as how he is avoiding using chemotherapy when possible.

Listening to this podcast will help you better understand the possible changes you too might be able to discuss with your own doctor about your own treatment.  It will help you ask better questions at your own medical appointments.
