Geoffrey Gaunay, MD

Dr. Geoffrey Gaunay received his undergraduate degree from the University of Delaware and his medical degree from Jefferson Medical College. While there, he also met his wife, who is from Lancaster and is now a practicing colon and rectal surgeon in the area.

His comprehensive residency training was conducted at Mount Sinai Beth Israel Medical Center in New York City. Following his clinical interests, Dr. Gaunay then obtained further subspecialty fellowship training at the prestigious Smith Institute for Urology within the Northwell Health System in Long Island, New York. There, he had the opportunity to work with many respected leaders in the field of minimally invasive urology.

What our Patients Say

“Dr. Gaunay is friendly, approachable and highly professional. He took the time to talk to me about my kidney stone test results and explained what would happen if I chose not to take the medication. I appreciate his time and attention.”

“Dr. Gaunay was friendly and easy to relate to. He had to present me with negative information regarding my condition which was difficult for me to hear but he presented it to me in a caring and professional way. He showed me the CT scan and made his recommendation for me to see a surgical oncologist at the Univ. of Penn. answering my questions and concerns.”

“Dr. Gaunay was very personable and made me feel like I was his only patient. Explained step by step in every aspect of my care.”

“His decisions seem to be right on. I have quite a bit of medical knowledge plus access to the internet and a retied urologist friend. Going in to visit him I had already come to the same decision as he did. I only made the appointment to appease my family physician. Glad to find a physician that doesn’t order unnecessary tests or procedures.”

“Dr Geoffrey Gaunay has an excellent contact with his patients he explains clearly your condition he listens to his patients carefully and doesn’t feel intimidated by patients past experiences with other urologists which is a great quality; as a matter of fact Dr GAUNAY has been able to reconcile me with his specialty because of all my shady experiences with past specialists in the Urology field. I have nothing but praises for Dr Geoffrey GAUNAY.”

This was my first kidney stone hopefully the last one and I was fortunate to have him do the surgery and followups. He is an excellent doctor in all ways as well as being friendly and so pleasant. He never made me feel he was in a rush to finish my appointments. Lancaster Urology is very lucky to have him on the staff.”
