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!

Recently (few days ago) I had an appointment with Dr. Jeffrey M Lafond in preparation for a hernia surgery at Trident Medical Center; Dr. Lafond was friendly, reassuring, knowledgeable, and discussed everything with me and my son, openly which made easy for me to understand the whole issue. The reception at the office, the waiting room and the personal provide an atmosphere of calm and tranquility. I was happy and felt good about the whole experience.
