I've been getting kidney stones for 17 years, and no one has explained more to me about stones and kidneys than Dr. Gomelsky. I get 4 to 5 a year, sometimes requiring surgery so I am pretty picky about who I trust with my care. Dr. Gomelsky and his staff have always tried to accommodate me and do whatever they can to help me.
