Kidney Stone Hotline

If you have a kidney stone, call our 24-hour kidney stone hotline at 770-812-9931.

What are kidney stones?

Kidney stones are the build up of minerals on the inside of the kidneys. They tend to be sharp, causing pain while in the kidneys and when they pass.

Kidney stone symptoms can include:

  • Blood in the urine
  • Burning during urination
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Pain in the side or groin
  • Trouble urinating

What to expect when you call

Our hotline will connect you with a Tanner representative. We will determine what level of care you need based on your previous diagnosis and current symptoms.

If calling during regular business hours, we will provide you with an instant physician referral. If you are calling after hours, you will receive a call back the next business day.

What if I’ve never had a kidney stone?

If you have never been diagnosed with a kidney stone, don’t know the source of your pain and are experiencing any of the following symptoms, go to the nearest hospital emergency department:

  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Blood in your urine
  • Fever

Our commitment to you

If you have a previously diagnosed kidney stone, you will receive a call back and treatment within 24 hours. Those with kidney pain without a previous diagnosis or specific cause will receive a call back within one business day to schedule an appointment.

Kidney Stones: Causes, Diagnosis and Management

Kidney stones are small, hard bits of minerals and salt that develop inside your kidneys. When they pass through your body, it can be excruciating, but some may pass without you even knowing they were there.

When Should a Woman See a Urologist?
When Should a Woman See a Urologist?

Many people feel embarrassed when it comes to discussing their "below the belt" health with a physician. Women often believe that a primary care physician and an OB/GYN are the only healthcare providers they will ever need. These providers can address most concerns, but there are instances where seeing a urologist is more beneficial. Despite urology being commonly associated with men's healthcare, there are situations where women may also require the expertise of a urologist.
