    Dr. Gorbonos was my 2nd opinion. The first doctor I consulted recommended a more radical surgery that concerned me. I wanted to fight to save my diseased kidney and Dr. Gorbonos felt he had the skill and I felt his confidence. A patient puts a tremendous amount of trust in his doctor and I followed my gut instinct. My outcome was very positive. I am very fortunate to have surrounded myself with a good doctor and a good hospital. I am doubly fortunate to have strong family and friend support.

    I have had nothing but positive experiences with Dr. Gorbonos. He communicated very thuroughly and clearly with every explanation. He always took the time to make sure I understood what I was being told and answered any question I had.

    Dr. Gorbonos is thoughtful, caring and friendly. At my first appointment I had two pages of questions and he answered all of them. His calm demeanor and thoroughness, was comforting. I'm so glad he was my doctor.
