I love Dr Gostowski! He has performed 3 surgeries on me. He is always compassionate about my needs. He always takes care to listen to my concerns even if they are silly. He loves his job and his work is proof of that! My scars are perfect! I can't say enough about him.

Dr. Gostkowski is an amazing surgeon. I was referred to him through my father who has had a few skin cancer surgeries & always had great results. Now I’ve had a small surgery done on my arm & 2 skin tags removed from my face. Each time healed well & hardly any pain at all. I’d highly recommend him for anyone going in for surgery.

Dr. Gostkowski is wonderful! Thorough, attentive, responsive and always assuring. Simple the best general surgeon available in the Torrington area. He has been providing in this community for decades.
