Charles Holzner is one of three directors for the Medicare Advantage insurer CareMore, which has clinics in Glendale and Burbank and is currently pushing men to seek advice about prostate cancer screenings. He has conducted thousands of screenings since he began practicing as a physician in 1983 and has even developed an approach to make men more relaxed about the procedure, which gets a bad rep in movies and TV skits often featuring unsympathetic gloved doctors. Holzner’s main focus related to the tests, however, is to clear misconceptions about the pros and cons of prostate cancer exams and treatments, which are not what most might expect, he said.
