This man is the best abdominal surgeon you will ever find. He did an umbilical repair on me and it is now perfect. If you have any doubts about finding a surgeon pick this man. He is also a very nice person, great sense of humor. I cannot say enough great things about him.

Dr Vaughan is a caring Doctor who diagnosed my medical problem on one visit proceeded by surgery which corrected my problem his staff Adrienne and Pat are the nicest individuals you could ever come in contact with they are always there to help.

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.
in Boynton Beach, FL |
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.
