Cancer Focus: Prostate Cancer
Dr. Yamoah received his MD degree from Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York and his PhD in Oncological Science from Mount Sinai Graduate School of Biological Sciences and Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, also in New York, NY. Dr. Yamoah recently completed a Radiation Oncology residency at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia, PA, where he served as Chief Resident. He also completed a research fellowship in prostate cancer disparities and epidemiology at the University of Pennsylvania. These educational experiences were enriched by obtaining two competitive grants from the Prostate Cancer Foundation and the Department of Defense to carry out work on prostate cancer disparity in men of African descent. Dr. Yamoah’s clinical focus is genitourinary malignancies. He is committed to increasing access and quality of care among the minority population, particularly men of African descent. His clinical expertise focuses on prostate cancer, prostate brachytherapy, intensity-modulation radiation therapy (IMRT) and image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT). Dr. Yamoah is a physician scientist who is highly demanded in the fast growing field of prostate cancer disparities research. He has won several awards and honors and is a respected member of the scientific community. Dr. Yamoah’s research focus is on the biologic factors that predispose African American men to higher prostate cancer incidence and mortality; he will use his research findings to inform targeted treatment recommendations in the clinical setting. Currently he is pursuing translational research to identify gene-specific factors associated with health disparities of aggressive prostate cancer as well as poor progression-free survival in African Americans. He has had the opportunity to present research at national meetings and authored 25 peer-reviewed publications.

The Provider Rating is an average of all responses to specific care provider-related questions from our nationally-recognized Press Ganey Patient Satisfaction Survey. Responses are measured on a scale of 1 to 5 with 5 being the best score.
Patients that are treated in outpatient or hospital environments may receive
different surveys, and the volume of responses will vary by question.
Comments are gathered from specific care provider-related questions from our Patient Satisfaction Survey . The comments are submitted by patients and reflect their views and opinions. Patients are de-identified for confidentiality and patient privacy.
We post both positive and negative comments from the surveys. We do not post comments that are libelous, slanderous, profane, irrelevant or otherwise inappropriate or may risk the privacy of our patients. A “[…]” in the comments below indicates de-identified patient information or comments that are unrelated to the patient’s experience with the visit to the provider, such as comments related to another provider, about the survey itself, or otherwise completely off-topic.
Not all providers will have a star rating or comments. In order to ensure accuracy of our ratings, we only display ratings for providers who have a minimum of 30 completed from the previous 12 months.Learn more about our patient comments
