In brief: Gallstone Tests

An ultrasound of the abdomen is usually done to diagnose gallstones after a careful history and physical.
This can be done by your primary care doctor. The treatment of gallstone disease, however, requires surgical removal of the gallbladder. For this you need to see a general surgeon.
