On the Friday, October 14th broadcast, 2011 at 1PM Pacific/4PM Eastern our special guest is medical oncologist James Sinclair, MD, partner in Pacific Hematology & Oncology Associates & Medical Director of the Scripps Cancer Center . We'll discuss the controversy associated with the routine use of PSA's in screening for prostate cancer. For reference,see: 'The Shortfalls of Early Cancer Detection.'
Dr. Sinclair was raised in Wisconsin where he completed his undergraduate and medical school training at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. His mentor at Madison, Robert Schilling, M.D. suggested he do his post M.D. training at UCSD with Helen Rainey, M.D. and Mark Green, M.D.
Dr. Sinclair began his private practice in 1987 and has spent the last several years fully engaged in the private practice of hematology and medical oncology. Dr. Sinclair has offices in La Jolla and Encinitas. His interests include benign hematology, all forms of cancer as well as palliative medicine that lead to his position as medical director of a local hospice program. He sees himself as the “quarterback” for his patients as they try to navigate their way through the complex arena of cancer care.
