Dr. Vaughn is a very concerned, supportive, helpful bariatric surgeon. I lost 125 pounds after having my gastric bypass. The information his office gave me became my bible. I followed it to a T, and had absolutely no problems. I have continued to keep the weight off thank you to all of the support I have received. Bedside manner was not what I needed, therefore he provided the stern get up and go support I needed. I appreciate all he has done and value his opinions and skill w my life.

This was my first surgery and to make things worse it was a hernia surgery, which there are many landmines down there and I was scared I'd never be able to have sex again! Dr. Vaughan was not the most sensitive in the psychological consoling but that's not what I need him for. I need a damn skilled surgeon. It's been several months after surgery. I had no problems at all. I had no swelling at all! I had hardly any bruising, and I healed very fast. Everything is great! He is a artist with a knife

Terrible bedside manner.

Dr. Vaughan is truly the most amazing physician. He did my bariatric surgery (Rou-en-Y bypass) in 2004. I lost 110 lbs. and have kept it off since then, even with having 2 children. He is so knowledgeable about post-bariatric nutrition, and does extensive bloodwork to make sure my levels of vitamins are optimal. I cannot recommend him enough. I would trust him with my life 10 times over.
