On Oct. 29, 2018 I was passing a kidney stone and didn't have a urologist. I found a cancellation appointment with Dr. Pinsky the same day. He sent me for an x ray prior to the appointment. The x ray did not show a kidney stone. He could see my pain was real. He sent me back to get a CT scan, stat. I had the scan and went home because he said he would call. He called me personally acknowledging there was a stone and ordered medication to help me pass it. Spends time and very thorough.

Wonderful doctor! I came in through the emergency room, and Dr. Pinsky correctly identified my problem, removed the kidney stone and inserted a stent, and answered all of my questions. He was very patient in allowing me the time that I needed to review all of my tests, consider his recommendations, and process all of my options. He was professional, knowledgeable, and kind. I highly recommend Dr. Pinsky!
