Print PageI had issues with (very large and numerous) kidney stones that had me in the Emergency Room more times in a five-year period than I can even remember. After 10+ procedures and still no answers or resolutions, I finally had hope after my first appointment with Dr. Pruna. He was determined to find out the source of my kidney stones and Do whatever was necessary to prevent future ones. I'm still a patient of Dr. Pruna and my condition has improved under his care. I can't thank him enough.”Self-verified patient
