Dr. Gaughan's Care Philosophy

As a thoracic surgeon, I enjoy treating patients with a wide variety of illness to help them to achieve an outstanding quality of life. I am interested in minimally invasive and robotic surgery, but I inidividualize each patient's plan to ensure they receive the best surgical care available. I treat every patient with CPR: Compassion, Patience, and Respect. My special areas of focus are oncology (lung and esophageal cancer), gastroesophageal reflux, and Barrett's esophagus.

    Bad bad bedside manner. Took a personal call during my appointment. Made me wait 20 minutes while she chatted on her cell phone.

    Great surgeon. Basically saved my life. I cheated death and left it in her hands. A true master of her craft. One of the doctors who really knows what they are doing. I owe a lot to Dr Gaughan. God bless her
