Dr. Black is the best! I have had three different surgeries from him and all have come out fine. I trust Dr Black on any surgery that He can do. He is very soft spoken, Great bed side manner. Use him, you want be sorry. I saw here some person rated him a one star. This person did not leave their name. Well that tell me something!!! Don't believe anything negative. oh and his staff are the greatest. David B Jackson

Dr Black is outstanding! Very thorough and caring. Was recommended by a friend who was his patient. He did my surgery for heartburn and obesity. No pain after surgery! Doing great. I could not find another surgeon who could fix both my problems and my private pay cost was lower by thousands of dollars ! Well worth my trip from Atlanta. They are a center of excellence for weight loss surgery. Stringfellow hospital was unbelievable, great care and friendly nurses.

Dr Black is very impressive. West Point graduate and top of his class at Emory Med school. He is very direct and honest. He does a great job and cares about his patients. My family all use him and wouldn't think of using anyone else. There is a reason so many patients come to him from great distances. Office staff are caring and helpful.

Excellent care at Stringfellow and I'm very pleased with the results of my esophageal hernia repair along with correcting the problem of acid reflux. Dr. Black is an amazing surgeon. Thank you for giving back my ability to enjoy eating again

I was operated on by Dr Black on an emergency basis and afterward was told what was wrong. My condition did not change after the surgery which required an addition emergency surgery a week later because of complications of the first and that only fixed the problems of the first surgery. I was still left with my original condition 2 surgeries later finally going to a specialist to fix my original condition.

Had hiatal hernia with toupet nissens procedure done by Dr. Black. It was well worth the 2 hour drive from the south Atlanta area. I chose Dr. Black due to his experience and reputation and was impressed. His staff and the Stringfellow Hospital staff were wonderful. As I write this I am 4 weeks postop and am normal except I can't eat as much as I used to which is a good thing for my waist line.
