Care Philosophy

Contact me at pgargollo @ gmail. com (no spaces)! I believe in treating my patients as I would want my own children treated. I have been very blessed to have trained in some of the best institutions in the world and I believe in bringing that knowledge to my practice fo the benefit of my patients. I will never operate or perform a test on your child unless absolutely necessary. In fact I am a minimalist when it comes to invasive tests, antibiotics and surgery. I am always available to you and I promise that your experience will be thoughtful, pleasant, compassionate and (most importantly) knowledgable and skilled. I am so committed to you and your child that I am posting my personal email address here so that you can contact me 365 days a year. Please contact me with any questions or concerns or even if I can help with a second opinion or local referral. I look forward to helping you and your child.

We came to see Dr. Gargollo for a second opinion regarding options after a secondary UPJ obstruction. Dr. Gargollo had taken the time to become familiar with our particular situation before our appointment, and was compassionate, comforting, and very well-informed about our condition. He explained treatment options in very clear terms and his clinical judgement has brought us through this health challenge with great success. I highly recommend Dr. Gargollo for both his personal manner and his

I can't say enough good things about Dr. Gargollo and can't recommend him more highly! We were so pleased with his care for our son when he was in Texas and were SO sad when he moved away. I contacted him via email and he has been so generous with his time and advice, even with two years passing since my son was under his care. He is extremely trustworthy and doesn't jump to operate without considering the overall needs and concerns of his patients and their families. He is a rare gem!!!

Dr. Gargollo is very passionate about his patients. He truly cares and will do what is in the best interest of the child. He makes things very easy to understand and will make sure all questions are answered before the appointment is over. Dr. Gargollo has a great bedside manner and makes the child and family feel comfortable. I would recommend him for your future care.

Dr. Gargollo is the BEST pediatric urologist. He is compassionate and caring about his patients and their families. Dr. Gargollo answered all my questions about my child's diagnosis and surgery until I understood and felt at ease. He was available after the surgery to answer any questions we had. Dr. Gargollo went above and beyond to care for our child and I am so thankful we chose him for our child's operation and care.

Not only is Dr. Gargollo an outstanding surgeon, but also he is a compassionate physician with unbeatable bedside manner. He is approachable, personable, and available to answer questions both before and after procedures. Dr. Gargollo accurately diagnosed my son's condition, then quickly mapped out a treatment plan which included additional testing and surgery. I could not more highly recommend Dr. Gargollo.

The first visit to Dr.G just calmed our nerves down as we knew we found the best doctor. My 2 year old kid was diagnosed with VUR. As anyone with this would know, this condition is definitely not a small journey. Dr.G is very knowledgeable and compassionate. Let me just be honest in saying that he is the doctor who REALLY CARES for his patients. Which doctor, in these times, would respond to old patient's concerns immediately with in minutes? We had to choose another doctor after he moved out of
