Our Team

While kidney stones are not rare, the pain can come on suddenly and send you to the emergency department or urgent care for relief. Our team understands how important it is to be seen quickly by an expert, and our nurse navigators have been praised for their swift outreach and help with appointments. This personal touch enhances the outstanding outcomes our clinical team realizes.

Message from the Director

Dr. Joshua SteinAt the Tallwood Kidney Stone Center, we make sure that anyone suffering from a kidney stone can see one of our providers as quickly as possible. Our staff is working diligently to ensure you have a seamless transition from an emergency room visit to one of our offices to expedite the treatment you need. For patients with recurrent stones, we provide easy access for those times when you feel that familiar pain coming on. We will also ensure that patients are given appropriate testing and counseling to help prevent future kidney stone episodes. Our goal is to relieve your pain as soon as possible, get you back to work or play, and eliminate the need for unnecessary emergency room visits. Call us now if you would like to meet with one of our specialists to discuss a better way to manage your kidney stones.

- Dr. Joshua Stein
