Don't like my personal business on the web. Just know that these people and the doctor don't have empathy or seem to care when there's post-op issues. No follow up at all. BEWARE!

Had a surgery scheduled - found out exactly what an additional procedure he scheduled entailed . "had to have a wire inserted into a mass to be removed?" I refused since I had very recent x-rays and ultrasound to show where, size etc. This surgeon apparently has to have a hooked wire to follow so he does not have to know where mass is. Scary. Then day before surgery called about the above - so did Trident Surgical center - NO RETURN PHONE CALLS TO DATE OVER 24 HOURS to either of us I cancelled

I would recommend this doctor to anyone. He gave me my life back. I had a massive hernia that two other doctors (in the Roper network) would not help me with. Dr. Lafond not only helped me, but he did so using robotic surgery. I have my life back and I could not be more happy!

From the time I went to Dr.Lafond office I knew I was in the right place. He greeted me with a smile was a very concerned and what I had to say and reassured me he was going to fix my problem. He explained the recovery process so I knew what to expect. He was honest enough to say things can come up during surgery. Recovery was just as he told me. I find Dr. Lafond one of the best surgeons I have had the please of being under his care.

I recently had surgery at Trident medical center. I was d/c the same day with a script for 5mg of Percocet.. I took the meds as the doc told me to and was still in excruciating pain. He told me to go to the ER if it didn't ease up. I went to the ER. The ER staff paged him 3 times and I also called twice from the ER. he never returned our pages. I was finally admitted for pain management. My nurse on the floor paged him another 4 times with no call back. If u r on call, answer the page.

I had a second hiatial hernia repair both done by Dr. Lafond. After the second sugery I was so sick and NOT getting better. A few weeks of not getting better he got irritated and dropped me as a paitent in the most unprofessional way. Now I am at the Mayo hospital FL waiting on gastric bypass sugery because during my second sugery with DR. Lafond he damaged my vagus nerve leaving my stomach permanently paralyzed (gastroparesis) NEVER was I told this could happen. Lafond was rude, heartless...

Dr. Lafond has performed my last 4 hernia surgeries, starting in 2014 & most recently in June of 2017. He is the most kind, caring, compassionate doctor I have ever seen. After each surgery he called me at home to check on how I was doing & went out of his way to make sure I was as comfortable as possible. He & his staff are the ultimate professionals but they also treat you as a friend & take the time to really get to know you. I would definitely recommend Dr. Lafond to family & friends!

I think that Dr. Lafond is such a caring, kind doctor. He always shows interest in me as a person, not just as a patient. He is very professional as a surgeon.
