“...Probably the best doctor I have ever had...also one of the nicest people I know.” - Patient

Named several times as one of America's Top Doctors for cancer by Castle Connolly, Przemyslaw Twardowski, M.D., is Co-Director of City of Hope's Medical Oncology Genitourinary Program.

Originally from Poland, Dr. Twardowski studied at the Lublin Medical Academy and earned his medical degree at the University of Missouri.

A member of the City of Hope team since 1998, Dr. Twardowski has led numerous clinical trials aimed at breaking the bond between prostate cancer and testosterone, a hormone which appears to accelerate the disease.

He is also constantly searching for treatments that minimize side effects, and has been in forefront of research into white mushroom powder as an agent to slow the spread of recurring prostate cancer.
