This was the second time I used Dr. Lafond as a surgeon. Both times he was extremely professional and had a great bedside manner. He explained in detail what the procedure would entail, as well as what to expect during recovery. My follow up appointments went extremely well. I'd recommend Dr. Lafond.

Dr. Lafond does an excellent job on his surges, but he also cares about his patients. He takes time to explain everything to you and doesn’t act like he is superior over his patients.

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
