Excellent doctor and surgeon. Saved my kidney. Another local urologist told me there was nothing that could be done for my ureteral stricture that was obstructing my kidney. I was heading towards renal failure. But Dr. Zhou was recommended to me and less than 24 hours after seeing me for a consultation, he took me to the OR, balloon dilated my ureter, and saved my kidney. I highly recommend him.

We have been under Dr. Zhou’s care for many years; he is very professional and caring. His staff are always anxious to help and very polite. He is very busy and compared to wait times in other doctor offices, he has them also, but not as bad as most we have had to wait for! We feel Dr. Zhou has literally saved Tim’s life and continues to monitor him and direct what is necessary for his bladder stones, prostate cancer, and urology needs. We feel safe with him and are very lucky to have him as our urologist.
