Patient Reviews (2)
in Watertown, CT |
Dr. Gostkowski, along with his PA's, Meghan and Josh, were quite personable and professional. Dr. Gostkowski performed a successful (emergency) laproscopic gallbladder surgery on me and the results were wonderful and as expected. The whole process was smooth and the staff comforting. The Doctor came up the morning of the surgery to assure me as well. Hopefully, soon I will be able to return to my excercise program ! Thanks to all!
He is an amazing, knowledgable and caring surgeon. I was highly impressed
