Question Need the best prostate cancer radiation oncologist in michigan

Hello,

My cousin was diagnosed with prostate cancer in April 2009 (PSA of 5.4, gleason 9 with no seminal vescicle or lymph node invasion and negative surgical margins) and the cancer was just outside the prostate capsule.

He had a robotic prostatectomy in May of 2009 and has had two ultra sensitive tests conducted since then (0.016 and 0.010 respectively).

He has decided to do IMRT radiation. Of course, the radiologist has a lot to do with the success of the treatment. The question now is "Who is the best PROSTATE radiation oncologist?"

He has narrowed it down to Dr. Benjamin Movsas of Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit Michigan and Dr. Jeffrey Forman in Pontiac Michigan.

If any one out there has any information on either one of these doctors, good or bad, PLEASE let me know.

If you know a prostate radiation oncologist in Michigan that's better than the two mentioned above, PLEASE let me know as well.

Desperate in Michigan and need your help.
Thank you
