Went to dr gannon as a current cancer patient who had already received 9 chemotherapy treatments. colon cancer had spread to the liver. Dr Gannon immediately made me feel at ease. After reviewing the current lower body scan, Dr. Gannon explained, and spent the time, to tell me exactly what to expect, and why. The surgery went "textbook" and the time in the hospital was exactly what Dr Gannon had said. Follow up the next week was right on time and all was good. Dr Gannon is highly recommened.

Excellent surgeon. I had an extensive colon and liver resection with no complications, a short hospital stay, and excellent care from Dr. Gannon. I highly recommend him! He gave me complete details regarding the surgery and answered all my questions. I also was provided with excellent follow up after the procedure.
Ft Lauderdale, FL |
Dr. Gannon has the training and experience required to address my problem. He was considerate, clear, and patient in explaining my problem, the solution he proposed and the potential risks and benefits of moving ahead with surgery. Surgery and recuperation went as Dr. Gannon described. I felt confident going in and pleased that I had selected Dr. Gannon afterward.

Great Doctor
Philadelphia, PA |
Greatest surgeon I know. He cares deeply for his patients inside and outside the operating room. He is a perfectionist in my eyes. So the question is, would I let him work on me or my family members? My answer is yes and there is no doubt about it.
in Hollywood, FL |
You will not find a better surgeon anywhere. He is a straight-shooter and seriously committed to the finest care and outcomes. I was blessed to cross paths with him and through his hands God gave me a miracle.
in Palm Coast, FL |
In NJ, Dr. Gannon resected an 11.5 cm gastrointestinal stromal tumor (gist) from my small intestine with minimal complications. He was very patient in explaining the surgery to me, answered all of my questions, and was available to assist with the effects of the surgery, once in the dead of night. He was also highly regarded by my longtime NJ internist, GI specialist, and oncologist.
in Trenton, NJ |
This doctor performed my extensive surgery and left me with three years of in and out of hospitals due to his incompetence. Finally went to NYC after 6 post surgical admissions where he stated he did nothing wrong. NYC did liver biopsy, found food particles in liver. Gannon's surgery was done incorrectly and had to be redone in NYC. Would not recommend this doctor under any circumstance.
in Trenton, NJ |
Had Whipple surgery. Incorrectly performed. Constant infections for three years....he said he did nothing wrong. New surgeon in NYC performed whipple revision 10/15. Said connection wasn't long enough and food was escaping into my body causing numerous infections, food particles in liver and small bowel. Would not touch this doctor with a ten foot pole.
